Typical Day With A Dash Of Nature

This morning i woke up wanting a simple breakfast. I’ve been on a scrambled eggs kick and I just can’t get enough. Plus we finally have butter in the house. Pair them with some toast and coffee and I’m a happy chick.

Chris and I headed out to one of the local resivours for some cardio and good conversation. It is a nice long trail around the perimeter which ends up being 5 miles. I used to go there pretty often and am trying to sneak it in more and more.

It wasn’t as hot as usual today and despite my leg still being WAY sore from Tuesdays lunges, we managed to throw a few jogging intervals in there. It was a nice time, I just wish Chris didn’t always have to deal with work issues constantly on his cell phone on his days off. He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do though.

I had a delicious green smoothie when I got home which consisted of almond milk, wild blueberries, spinach, hemp protein and a dash of agave nectar. The way it layered in the blender looked much cooler then the final product which looked kinda swampy. I got around to making a salad for work with oven roasted turkey tenderloin, tomatoes, roasted red pepper, red onion and cannelini beans which really tasted good in there. Luckily there is some left for tomorrow.

I have school on my mind a lot and just how much my life is going to change and it’s just so scary and exciting at the same time. My finances are something that is going to be a pretty big issue. I am going to be spending $350 a month on commuting alone! I really have to come up with a strict budget and figure out ways to save. Any ideas?
