my less serious day: first day

So I wore purple tights on my first day teaching as a college professor. That either makes me super cool or completely awkward and inappropriate. Let's just go with super cool...

Dress: Macy's; cardigan: J Crew; tights: unknown; necklace: Loft; pumps: Miz Mooz.


Before teaching, I did a 35-minute ramp interval workout on my stationary bike. After work, despite my post-teaching headache, I hit the gym for a 60-minute Turbo Kick class.Ten minutes in and my headache was gone and I felt great. Ah, the power of a good workout....


Breakfast was a bowl of Kellogg's All Bran, Arrowhead Puffed Wheat, cocoa powder, a banana, and a combination of cow and almond milk.

Lunch was a chocolate-vanilla-peanut butter green smoothie.

My snack was a bowl of plain Greek yogurt with Cascadian Farms Ancient Grains granola.

Dinner was sweet potato chips dipped in agave nectar alongside roasted Brussels sprouts mixed with eggs (2 whites + 1 whole egg) and 1/2 avocado.

Dessert was SOO an (un-pictured) pudding cup with whipped cream.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Tuesday, January 8.
