About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

I am off to bed before I eat anything else today. I want to eat but I think it is because I am bored but really sleep is the smartest choice. Here is a quick recap of my day.

I had gone to bed by 11 p.m. last night and by some miracle I actually woke up at 7 a.m. I was still lazy and hung out in bed till 8 a.m.

I got up and did a 20 minute Firm Express video. If I was going in order I would be on a cycle 2 with Rebekah but she jumps too much which frustrates me. So I moved to to cycle 3 with Alison it was great. I pushed myself and could do most of the exercises with her or already knew modifications.

After a shower and getting dressed it was time for breakfast. I made myself a chocolate banana protein shake. It was delicious and about 300 calories. I had some time so I also cut up the 2lbs of strawberries I had bought the night before.

Next I was off to my college library. I had a book to return that I had rented. That's right Rent-a-text. I also had to pick up some books for my summer classes. My two classes this semester is Critical Reading and Family Child Care: Intro to Business Management. 

I had carrots and cherry tomatoes for snack. Lunch was salad with cucumbers. I did have a cookie from the teacher's lounge but works into my calories. I came home work and went straight to Holy Yoga. It was good. I hadn't eaten in hours and had a pot pie for dinner. Since I was a kid my mom always served them to us upside down so I still eat them that way. They are about 600 calories but my calorie level is 1900 so 600 is a good amount for dinner.  
I watched Hawaii Five-O and had a little snack. I am totally in love with Dole Peaches & Creme Parfait's. Totally full of sugar, I know, but they are so delicious! I also had a little Chex Mix. I have plenty of calories so that was ok. In fact I only ate 1700 of my 1900 calories. Plus I burned 504 calories. So today has been awesome but now off to bed so I don't start snacking.

  1. love the photos! you should post photos more often. :) Sounds like a great start to your week!

    Also, I was wondering if you've ever tried greek yogurt. I know it's the new food fad, and I was skeptical of it too, especially since I've never really been a fan of normal yogurt before. I tried it recently, and it's SO GOOD. I dont' understand how they can make something that creamy while still being fat free/low fat. I've never checked the sugar, though. But it might be a guilt-free sub to your peaches and creme parfait. :)
