Some of my favorite posts of other bloggers? A day in the life of said blogger. Why am I interested in the mundane every day goings on of other people? That I’m not sure. Yet here we all are reading blogs, which are basically just that. In any case, while I don’t find my life incredibly interesting, I thought I would share with you what a typical day looks like for me.
March 1, 2012
10:30 AM – Wake up. Don’t judge… To say I’m not a morning person anymore is an understatement. However, part of the reason for that is because I go to bed late at night due to my job. In any case, I wake up and immediately go for the coffee and breakfast. And until I do, don’t talk to me. Just sayin.
Today I had Kashi blueberry waffles topped with Earth Balance and light syrup with 1/2 of a banana
And, most importantly, energy in a cup.
I’m also not even afraid to say that flavored coffee creamers are one of my indulgences. Yes, I’m quite aware they are full of scary chemicals. Are they delicious? You bet!
After breakfast I’ll usually read some blogs, catch up on necessary computer things, etc.
12 –12:30 PM or so – I head to the gym or workout at home. Yesterday I did 15 minutes on the bike, 20 minutes incline walking (which I am in love with lately), a short leg workout, and then abs/stretching. I usually will spend an hour or so at the gym – it’s my ME time.
2 – 3:30 – I return home from the gym and have some post gym refreshment, lately in the form of a glass of orange juice. I’ve been drinking some sort of juice daily for the past month or so and I can definitely feel the difference. While I don’t like to get my calories from liquids, Vitamin filled natural juices are perfect.
3:30 – I head to work and have lunch/heavy snack on the way to work. Again, don’t judge… I’m aware that driving while eating is probably not the safest thing to do. Do as I say, not as I do
A smoothie made with frozen peaches, 1/2 of a frozen banana, Greek yogurt, non-fat milk, 1/4 cup raw oats, and 1/2 scoop Jay Robb’s Vanilla Whey Protein Powder. And yes, it did taste like a peach milkshake. YUM!
Dipped in raw maple almond butter. <-AKA, crack.
(Don’t worry, all pictures were safely taken before the car was in motion)
4 – 10:30/11:00 – Work. Enough said.
11:00 – 11:30 – I finally return home from work and have some sort of dinner. This specific day I had…
Collard greens, green beans, mashed potatoes, and dressing, Thanksgiving style.
A little fun starchy foods and a little green
Annd a beer. It was just necessary after last night. Enough said.
11:30 – 1 AM – Relax. Even though I work late, I am NOT one of those people who can come straight home and go to bed. I have to relax and unwind after work and then I’ll usually head to bed around 1 AM or so.
All in all, I do not lead a very exciting life. Buuut, it’s not so bad
