Teacher Arms

I have teacher arms.

They wiggle when I’m writing on the dry-erase board.

The 30-Day Shred is totally giving me visible (to me, maybe not to you) cut-to-the-shoulder muscles (I know nothing about muscles. My pilates instructor friend tells me these are “delts” which I think is just her sorority name and she’s April-fooling me early.)

Holy Weekend Indulgences, Batman

Corona Light x a million

Amaaaazing NY style pizza

Strawberry ice cream in a cone

Vegan french toast

… oops.

And then I didn’t want the weekend to end, so this happened:

Homemade hummus

Pumpkin spiced almond butter

Vegan chocolate chip cookies.

OMG. Oops.

Pets vs. "food animals"

Ugh, I need to get my vegan on.
