If you do not take a daily walk, I would highly recommend that you do. It is amazing how much better I feel and how much more energy I have when I am able to take my morning walk compared to days when I miss it. I have found that this challenge has shown me even more how important it is to take some time for yourself to refresh.
On today’s walk, I was on the lookout for more blackberries. You can imagine the smile on my face when I come around a corner and see a blackberry bush like this:
Because when you have a blackberry bush that big, it is easy to come home with this:
During my last trip to drop off food at the local food bank, the coordinator mentioned that cereal was running low and asked me to keep a lookout for any cereal deals. I found one at Lucky and ended up buying 110 boxes of cereal at $0.27 a box (this purchase was not part of this challenge, but part of penny experiment)
I am going to try this week to do both this challenge and start buying for food banks again as well and see how it goes. it should be an interesting week…
With all my freshly picked blackberries, was there any doubt that a blackberry smoothie was how I was going to start my day?
Before I left to do my cereal buying, I made myself a quick spinach salad with shredded cheese, Italian dressing and and extra slice of bacon I had stored in a baggie that was hidden in the back of the refrigerator that I found on top.
I then took with me a couple of peanut butter sandwiches while I was out getting the cereal.
While it did turn out better than the previous two attempts, I still am doing something wrong. Maybe I will get the courage to try it again at some later date…
