Days 252-262…milestones!

So much has been going on!  Some HUGE milestones that I have been waiting for, as they are huge indicators that June is on it’s way and my hubby will soon be home where he belongs!  End of internship, finals for grad school, my half marathon, among other things…so busy yet a really happy kind of busy!

First I need to share this awesome mini path we found to a local beach.  My friend Tim came to visit and we decided to go to a seafood place a town over that my husband loves.  Now when hubby is home, he is way too excited for food to bother going for a walk around the town, so we have never found this awesome path before!  Excited to show him when he gets back!20130429-164632.jpg

My internship has drawn to a close!  300 hours in one year DONE!  I know 300 doesn’t sound like a lot, but when they are 300 unpaid hours that you are fitting in along with 2 parttime jobs and a fulltime grad class schedule, plus a deployed husband, it’s definitely a big chunk of time! 

My last day outfit…

Been keeping up with eating healthy, mainly because I eat the same thing every single day…an example of my tuna burger and broccoli lunches…

I’ve started adding dinner into my routine…trying to get an extra serving of protein and veggies into my diet, especially on days I work out extra hard…

  1. Congrats on finishing your internship! I don’t know how you fit 300 hours into your life for that, but it must feel great to be finished and have it off your plate.
    That yoga pose looks cool. I’ve never done yoga so the only thing I’ve heard of is downward dog and warrior 1 and 2… Doing my first yoga in a couple weeks, though!

    • Yeah it’s been a whirlwind but getting it done feels so great! Now I get to actually get PAID to work lol! You will LOVE yoga! It is such a great mind body and spirit workout:) it always brings balance and peace to my day!
