I was able to eat a whole wheatberry sandwich today without getting anything stuck in the hole from my wisdom tooth removal. Sadly, this is the something I got very excited over, making me either really pathetic or just a really big fan of wheatberry. Not sure which.


Another smoothie (shocking, I know)

Here it is before mixing:


  • a banana
  • 3/4 cup of almond breeze
  • a scoop of peanut butter
  • 1 leaf of kale
  • 2 ice cubes

And here it is in all its glorysmoothie-mixed


This was spread out over the day. First, the sandwich.



  • 2 slices of wheatberry bread
  • 2 slices of vegetarian chicken
  • lettuce
  • 3 slices of tomato
  • hummus

And the finished product, along with the rest of the meal.



And a quick brag: I’ve lost a small amount on the scale, but what I’m really thrilled with is that tonight I looked in the mirror, and the double chin is almost completely gone! Definite progress, even if the scale doesn’t show it yet.

On a side note, I got an einstruction interwrite tablet yesterday for my classroom. I actually should have had it months ago, but it took forever for it to be shipped because I won it at a convention and there was some confusion over prizes/addresses, etc.

It just came in yesterday. I charged it overnight and was able to use it today. It is AWESOME!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone. I’m able to walk around the room while still using the smartboard, create venn diagrams, pages of notes, draw bunny rabbits on the smartboard (not productive, but still fun.) I made an afternoon of playing with it after the kids left for the day, and I have all kinds of ideas floating around in my head for future lessons. Best. Accessory. Ever.
