Monday: Since I go to the gym usually, I try to leave school before 5. This gives me enough time to run to the store quickly. Also, since I spend so much time getting my ass kicked by a professional, I shouldn't fuck it up by eating junky quick food. But it's also a Monday, so usually I'm on edge thanks to crazy children and general Monday craziness.
Conclusion: Buy hummus, a shit ton of veggies, and have an awesome salad. Little prep, healthy, and no cooking required.
Tuesday: I usually get home late on Tuesdays because I'm tutoring AP kids after school or running TAKS tutorials, so I'm generally rolling in after 6. I'm usually still drained from Monday, behind on my grading, scrambling to get lesson stuff together, and therefore in no state to cook anything complicated. Also, I'm generally running low on food.
Conclusion: This would be a good night to hit up a healthier "fast food" joint, but due to the late time I get home it isn't practical. Soooo sandwich/cooking eggs/making pasta? All relatively simple meals with little to no cooking and made with stuff I always have on hand.
Now let us see how the rest of the week goes...

So this week I've decided to think about my tendencies every night, because despite different times getting home and unexpected meetings, I tend to feel the same on a given weeknight. So here it is thus far:
