Good morning (or afternoon), my friends! How’s your week going so far? So far the first week in August is treating me well. I discovered from my paycheck yesterday that our statewide raise kicked in, so woo hoo! Lunch is on me.
It’s been awhile since I took you all through my typical day and I try to do one of these day-in-the-life posts every season, so I guess it’s about time, huh? If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that a summer day doesn’t look anything like the rest of the year! I guess we can also count this as a What I Ate Wednesday post. Haven’t done those recently either, have I? Cool, it’s a twofer then. Enjoy!
4:45 AM- Alarm goes off and I accidentally hit “stop” instead of “snooze.” Fall back asleep.
6:20 AM- Wake up again. Dang it, I missed my workout! Nooo! Decide to do it anyway and just get to work late. They will understand.
6:40 AM- Get to the gym, hop on a treadmill, start running, and watch the news for about 30 minutes. Finish my run and stretch a bit before heading back home. Short, but at least I squeezed it in.
7:20 AM- Get home, run the vacuum, let all the pets outside, and feed them. Take a shower and get ready for work.
8:15 AM- Heat up some whole grain toast for breakfast and top with crunchy PB. Enjoy with some cold brewed coffee from my fancy new coffee maker. The cold brew option alone is worth the price of that thing!
8:30 AM- Grab my coffee and hit the road to work!
9:10 AM- Sit down at my desk and start work for the day.
9:10 AM- 12:00 PM- worky work work…..
12:00 PM- Time for me and Yoma to have our weekly lunch date! We head to BJ’s Brewhouse for lunch.
I order the roasted cauliflower pita tacos with fries. They are amazing! If you live near a BJs, go get those tacos!
1:30 PM- Pay our tab and get ready to head back to work. Dig through my purse to find a lip gloss to wear and realize I’m turning into my mother.
1:40 PM- Back in the office. Whoops, our lunch went a little long! Thank goodness it’s summer and I have no meetings to get to.
1:40- 5:00 PM- Worky work work…..in between actual work, I take a walk around campus with a co-worker, start typing up this blog post, read about the solar eclipse later this month, and investigate new Netflix shows to binge.
5:00 PM- Commute time!
5:45 PM- Arrive home and snuggle the babies for a little while. They are always pumped to see me, which does wonders for my self-esteem.
6:30 PM- Watch last night’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance.
7:00 PM- Dinner’s ready! Riley makes frozen lasagna, which is not memorable, but fills me up.
8:00 PM- Finish typing up this post while enjoying a glass of wine in my PJs.
8:30 PM- There’s nothing I want to watch on TV, so I head upstairs to read in bed for a couple hours before lights out!
Does your schedule change a lot throughout the year?
What workout are you doing today? I’m headed to a barre class after work!
What are you watching on Netflix?
