Many lifestyle bloggers out there do play-by-plays of their daily activities, but that’s not really my jam. I like taking photos of my food and stuff, like any blogger would, but every last bite? Come on. Anyhoo, I decided to do it just once so you can peek into my life. Play by play.
An hourly (sort of) record of Thursday, September 5, 2013.
4:45 am- my phone screams at me. I silence it and go back to sleep.
5:00 my phone wakes me again. I ignore it.
5:15 DK’s phone goes off. He doesn’t hear it. I elbow him.
5:20 we get up. I start morning food prep which includes: Putting protein powder in my shaker for after the gym, putting greek yogurt in a container with frozen mangos and berries, toasting ezekiel bread for breakfast. (my toaster is from the 90’s. Clearly, I need a new one)
5:26 I eat half my toast with peanut butter and throw the rest away because I’m not very hungry, but I’ll need fuel for the gym.
5:30 I am not fully awake yet. I consider skipping the gym as I put on my sneakers. I decide to go.
5:45 on the way to the gym, still dark out. What the hell.
7:10 I emerge from the gym glistening and radiant. The sun is shining and life is beautiful! I hop in my car and mix my protein shake. It tastes like cold hot chocolate…but in a good way.
7:50 I am showered and dressed. I begin round two of morning food prep which includes making my omelette for breakfast and packing my lunch.
8:00 I am getting sick of omelettes. I overcook mine and it grosses me out. I eat it anyway.
8:15 I head to work. It’s now raining, I am not thrilled.
8:30 stuck in traffic. I sing along to David Bowie in a Donald Duck voice to amuse myself. I consider changing careers to a voice over artist.
8:45 still in traffic. I take car selfies to pass the time.
9:00 finally arrive at work. I make my morning green tea and check emails like a boss (I’m not a boss).
10:30 hungry again…that didn’t take long. I eat my yogurt…it looks gross but tastes great. (The fruit has thawed by now)
12:30 pm lunch already! The day is flying. I eat my salad and my….balls.
12:45 I have 45 minutes left of my break, so I go to TJMaxx to see if they have any earrings. I buy shoes.
1:50 a coworker shares some blue tortilla chips. they are delicious.
3:24 the day is dragging. can I go home yet?
3:50 I am hungry. or bored…I eat some sugar snap peas.
4:30 only a half hour to go! I want a donut.
5:00 freedom! I drive home with the windows open. I listen to 105.7 because I am still mourning the death of Oldies 103.3, and 105.7 is the next best thing.
5:25 I arrive home and change into gym clothes (aka my pjs). I heat up leftovers for dinner before DK heads off to EMT class.
6:10 I screw around on Pinterest for a while.
6:45 I decide to be productive so I put laundry in and do dishes. I also decide I’m still hungry, so I make healthy cookies.
7:15 I settle onto the couch with Downton Abbey and a plate of freshly baked cookies.
7:20 I realize one of the actresses in Downton Abbey is also in Game of Thrones. I wonder why I missed this before. Nevertheless, I am excited.
8:00 I have eaten a total of six cookies. I also wish Downton Abbey was real life. But not really because a lot of main characters die.
9:30 I fold my laundry and get ready for bed.
9:40 I sink into my bed that feels like a cloud. I hope I dream of a crossover Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones universe.
