Snobby JoePosted: January 25, 2012
Hey all- just wanted to stop in and say that posts may be a bit sporadic this week. Work is crazy, because we just started a new semester. And with that semester change, we get all new students and get to start ALL over again. I spend months training my kids to be perfect little robots and just when they get to where I want them to be, they’re gone. It’s a huge headache and I hate it and just wish the classes were year-round, but it is what it is.
Maybe I should look at it with a positive attitude and just say “Yay! It’s a fresh start!”
Things are a little stressful- but not really in a bad way. I’m kind of in super-procutive mode, which is good. It also gives me extra steam to burn out at the gym and makes those after work workouts much better.
I don’t have a whole lot to share, because work has been my life for the past few days. And when I finally get to sit down at the end of the night, I watch a little tv before passing out.
I woke up at 4:24 this morning (6 minutes before my alarm was to go off) and headed to the gym do some some hardcore rowing before teaching spin class. Somehow, I’m still completely awake and full of energy! This is very strange… I usually crash by 10 am on days that I teach early morning spin. I’ll go with it though- I definitely need the energy!
Greg’s plate (hoagie roll):
My plate (open faced, on a piece of multigrain toast):
I served ’em alongside some Warm Red Cabbage Slaw and whipped cauliflower and herbs from the Vitamix (with a little pat of Kerrygold butter).
The snobby joes tasted incredible- I really can’t even describe how good they are. They taste like a “sloppy joe,” but a million times better. And if you love lentils like I do- you will LOVE this. I followed the recipe exactly (but cut it in half). I had some leftover for lunch the next day, and they tasted even better than they did the first night, which I truly didn’t think was possible. I have to make these in bulk just so I can reheat them for lunch every day.
See ya soon!
Do you go through crazy busy periods at work during certain times of the year? How do you handle the extra stress?
