Missing my Blog

Happy Saturday!

This week has been quite crazy. I have gone from working 4 to whenever waitressing to 8:30-5 at the office. Such a change.

For starters, the positives
  • I am working in my field now which is great.
  • Everyone in my office is extremely nice/friendly/helpful.
  • the stability of an 8:30-5 job where I know exactly how much moolah $$$ I'll be making.
  • Same hours as my boy.
  • My weekends off!
The not so awesomes:
    Me this past Wednesday. Source
  • Being in my cute little cubicle for hours on end.
I feel lucky that my desk is one of those high tech one's where I can elevate it so that I can stand while working. Now if they could just put a treadmill under there I would be in heaven...

But, seeing that this may not happen any time soon, I have been setting my alarm at 5:45 AM and working out for an hour before work. I always think I am going to one of the few brave souls there that early- but - Portland likes to get their work out on early. The gym is pretty hoppin' at 6 AM.
I have traded in my usual bowl of carby goodness of oatmeal with a scoop of PB for something a little lighter but equally as delicious.

A smoooooothie! This combination is great and is filled w/ vitamins and minerals and really keeps me satisfied.

  • 1 Cup Skim Milk
  • Banana
  • 1 TBSP. PB
  • 1 TBSP. Cocoa Powder
  • Tons of Cinnamon
You wouldnt belive how satisfying this combination is. Sometimes, I will add a couple tablespoons of oats if I am especially hungry after my workout. TRY IT!

I enjoy this with a huge mug of this and I am good to go! But really, this Nature's Place Organic Dark Roast is kinda disgusting and I don't reccomend it...hah.

I hope you have a great weekend and I promise I'll get better at updating even w/ this new job...

P.S my friend Alexi just started an awesome blog . Alexi and her hubby just came to visit and blogged about it here. Check it out! :)
