Adventures in the Wild
Oh how I wish there were three day weekends every week. Labor Day weekend was awesome because I felt like we did social things on Saturday, house errands on Sunday, and then could finally relax at home on Monday. So I vote for three day weekends to become a permanent thing. Who’s with me?
Today was a typical Monday. I got up at 7:30 and made the same breakfast I’ve been eating for probably a year or more now. I am big on routine and so when I find something that works for me, I tend not to change it (probably good news for our marriage). Remind me to tell you about my obsession with Subway sometime. Every morning I have Irish oatmeal with stevia and pumpkin pie spice. I go through a whole container of pumpkin pie spice in like 2 weeks. Im thinking that I should probably investigate some kind of bulk size…
I have been having smoothies with my breakfast for a couple weeks now. Neil and I always would randomly make smoothies since we got our Vitamix last year, but I wanted to be able to have one in the morning because of all the energy that they give me. Since I typically put pineapple and peach in it as well, I wanted to get all my fruit eating out of the way earlier in the day rather than at night.
I woke Neil up with his smoothie a little before 8, but I don’t think he was as happy about it as I was. He asked me last week to make him one in the morning so that he would be able to get his health on too! He asked, so I complied at 745 in the morning 🙂
I went to work this morning and got my windshield repaired while I was there. My car needs to be inspected this month and I randomly got a foot long crack in my windshield last month. I had driven to work (windshield fine), went to Starbucks, got back in my car and saw this gigantic crack. I have no idea what happened, but $300 later I have a new windshield :/
I got off work a little earlier than normal today and I typically go to the gym, but my legs are really sore from yesterday (yes!) and I felt a little off and tired throughout the day. I keep trying harder to listen to my body and not my head which will tell me to work out through all sorts of pain. I have learned from experience that when I do that, I end up incapacitated for a lengthy amount of time.
I still wanted to do some kind of physical activity, so when I got home I decided to go for a walk around our neighborhood. The weather is finally cooling off so it was pretty nice outside. I decided to try and walk down to this stream/creek that is near our place that I have been meaning to go to. I can’t get enough of nature and water, so I was really excited about this prospect.
