...Well, I'm sick of just posting my macros and saying "I'll post more later". Screw that. It's 11:30pm, but I'll post a bit now.
Past few days have been pretty great, getting back into the swing of things in practicum. I love working with the kids, and they love me - same mental age, right.
Downsides of the work?
- Really boring, teachers seem to associate in their own little groups. Like kids, I guess. The three of us student teachers just awkwardlysit at a centre table and eat our lunch, occasionally being talked to, but even then, it just feels unnatural. Not to mention. everyone is so damn judgemental of food. My sushi? Comments daily. Annoying as hell. That said, teachers seem to eat plate upon plate of salad. Salasaladsaladsalad, grassgrassgrassgrassgrasscarrot. It's crazy.
That's about it, really.
Past couple of days I've been more active in the class. I've started taking the morning role and have perfected the art of not mispronouncing names, which I know is really annoying to the kids. I've even started reading to them after lunch - so far a book on snake-shaped-cakes and old ladies eating bugs, tomorrow I plan on doing one about a turkey being tricked into eating sheep poop. I love my job.
I also have my first lesson plan tomorrow! Reading a book and predicting what will happen next every couple pages. Wish me luck!
We also are introducing volleyball to the school. So our Monday staff meeting was, well, volleyball. Have you ever seen teachers play volleyball? No? You're missing out on outrageous comedy.
Today is Wednesday, so my girlfriend came around for dinner We decided she'd leave at 8... but yeah, at 10:30pm we parted ways
Now, teh macros of peace and justice.
Protein and BP/Gelatin coffee.
Same as always. Protein powder with milk (whole) and coconut oil/gelatin coffee.
Yesterday leftovers. Best sushi yet, this is half of it - I split it 50/50 for morning tea and lunch. Had at morning tea (this one) with a black tea, because the other alternatives are tea with skim or trim milk. Bleh.
Just sweet gelatin for when I got home.
The girl came around and we were gonna have gluten-free spaghetti... but I had too much pasta yesterday, and on the way home I chatted to one of the boys in my class and he was picking up sour cream from the dairy for nachos. Turns out it's his favourite meal, too... pretty much set my mind on it.
Was out of kumara, so served on red potatoes - consensus? Still awesome. Topped with CC.
She still had hers with spaghetti. She loves the stuff :P
Stuffed Baked apple and ice cream
Baked granny smith stuffed with dates, orange peel and two scoops French vanilla.
I didn't log the cottage cheese or the GF molasse liquorice, since I'm finishing that tomorrow, so I logged it then. Why bother, amirite?
