April Showers

If you missed it this morning, I am hosting a giveaway on my blog this week: check it out!

You know that whole "April showers bring May flowers" saying? I'm pretty sure they (whomever "they" are) meant rain showers, not snow showers.

Mother Nature needs to get her shit together: I was not prepared to scrape off my car windows this morning before work.

As long as this happens soon, I suppose...


Aside from that inconvenience, today was a good day: my ninth graders were mostly well behaved, and my seniors watched an episode of Parenthood in class (love love love). After school, I headed to the tennis courts for practice, but due to miscommunication (as a result of the weather), only three girls showed up, so Shaw and I canceled practice and instead came back to my place to figure out match-ups for tomorrow's meet.

After Shaw left, I worked on tomorrow's blog post (spoiler alert: it has a lot of TMI about lady issues), cooked dinner, and chilled for a bit. Now, I'm finishing up this post and am planning on crashing shortly after hitting "publish."


I was running a bit late this morning and needed something fast for breakfast. So, I turned to a tried-and-true staple: Paleo Oatmeal. I ran out of almond butter, however, so I topped this mix with sunflower butter, and OMG: it was amazing.


Today's lunch consisted of last night's leftovers: steak, sauteed asparagus, sauteed sweet potatoes. I ate all of my vegetables, but the steak was not super great leftover; so, I ate about half of that and called it good.


I was feeling hungry (and probably a little calorie-deficient) from lunch, so I sliced up an apple and sided it with trail mix (cashews, almonds, craisins) for an afternoon snack. Yum, yum, yum.


Dinner was one of my all-time favorite Whole30 recipes: Moroccan Meatballs with cauliflower rice and steamed broccoli. (Instead of lamb, however, I used ground beef, and I ran out of paprika, so my recipe was a bit more "boring" than the original.)

Also, I didn't eat that whole plate. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, and about half of that is going to be my lunch for tomorrow.

How was your Monday? How's the weather in your part of the world?
