Changes to my Workout Routine

Ever since I started my new job, I've changed my workout schedule. I get to school at 7:30 at the latest, and can leave at 3:30 at the earliest. I didn't like the thought of working out after school, but I decided that sleep was more important than getting up super early to workout before work. I am SO HAPPY with my decision. It has actually been way better than I could've imagined! It allows me to work a little after the students leave, WORKOUT (which is a big stress relief and FUN), then I can go home, eat dinner, and work a little more if needed. That mental break is a treasure! I LOVE IT! 
(still eating my 20+ grams of protein after strength training to build muscle!)

I also LOVE my job! I am having a blast teaching my precious first graders! They are so sweet and it's so awesome to see students that are excited to learn!

I'm Going Back to Elementary School...

Sorry I've been kinda sporadic with my blog posts lately... I've been a LITTLE busy... 
This week was inservice! It was a lot of fun getting to know some of the other teachers. I worked a TON in my classroom. It's still not completely finished, but I'm sure I'll always think there is SOMETHING ELSE I could do... 
We met with Parents on Thursday, ( I even met a few of my students!!) so I wore my Cougar earrings and Cougar Blue Dress to show my school spirit! 

It was great meeting the parents. They were all very nice and supportive! It's going to be a great year! 

 Using my teacher bag that my aunt got me for graduation!

Like my brother mentioned the other day... "Kels, I'm the smart one now. I'm in college, and you're back in elementary school!" 

Talk to me... what was your favorite grade and why? 

The Gluten Free Bar Review

Here's some info about The Gluten Free Bar: The GFB was started in 2010 by a road warrior celiac who was constantly searching for a gluten- free nutrition bar that provided lasting energy, was highly nutritious, and tasted great. It turns out that finding such a bar was very difficult - and as a result, The GFB was created. 

It also turns out that others struggled to find the right bar, and since we began, we have heard similar stories from many of our customers. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of our customers' day, and are thrilled that we have been able to provide a nutrition bar that people can look forward to eating. 

At The GFB we have learned that simple, nutritious ingredients when combined with great care, can produce something that makes people happy - and making people happy is something we like to do.
