A day in the life.
Ever wonder what I do all day? Sometimes I think my husband does too.
Here’s what this Tuesday looked like for me…
7:00-7:40am: Workout in the garage. Still doing this plan and loving it. The workouts usually take about 30 minutes (warm-up + workout) and then DONE. If I’m too hungry to workout before I eat breakfast my workout gets pushed back to 10ish.
7:45-8:30am: Feed Maggie, shower, make breakfast, photograph breakfast, eat breakfast. Today I had a half serving of the coconut flour “oatmeal” + a green smoothie I’m working on for a sponsored post.
8:30-11:30am: Respond to emails and get some blog work done (pinterest research for a client + brainstorm ideas + edit photos for blog posts + I had done all recipe testing/photographing on Monday). I got hungry pretty soon after breakfast so I snacked on some cottage cheese + pineapple + pistachios.
11:30am-12:45pm: Go to Whole Foods to get ingredients for next week’s sponsored post. Grab a coconut flour chocolate chunk cookie as I head out the door (cookie recipe coming Wednesday!).
The Whole Foods haul. I’ve been excited to experiment with matcha! Finally picked some up.
12:55-1:45pm: Make lunch. Then photograph and eat. Today I made an open-faced slider with a leftover hamburger patty + a zucchini (which I thought was a cucumber until I ate it…how do I have a food blog?), tomato, white cheddar salad dressed with balsamic + olive oil + salt.
1:45-2:00pm: Respond to emails/update media kit.
2:00-3:00pm: Supervision call with the other dietitians at my eating disorder RD job.
3:00-3:15pm: SNACK! Honey wheat pretzels + a Justin’s PB Cup + some coconut chips. Sometimes, honey wheat pretzels just speak to me at the grocery store. Love the things.
4:30pm: Andrew gets home. YAY!
4:30-5:20pm: Keep working on same two posts. Also spent a little time in the garage sanding down this cart we recently put a darker wood stain on. Excited to use it for some food pictures.
5:20-5:40pm: Get ready for Houston Food Blogger Collective Event. Started getting a little too hungry before dinner so I ate another coconut flour cookie while doing my makeup.
6:00-9:45pm: Dinner at B&B Butchers. The cost of the meal was covered by those nice people at B&B Butchers. I got to sample this place a few weeks ago and was excited for Andrew to get to try it with me this time.
LOVE their building.
The evening started with some red.
The meal was served family-style so I got a few bites of everything. The first appetizer was carpet baggers. They’re thick-cut bacon topped with a fried oyster, buffalo sauce and blue cheese.
Then a tomato + arugula salad topped with sous-vide filet.
On to the main courses…
Salmon over sesame oil shitake mushrooms, greens and snap peas.
Truffle oil mac. Never gets old.
The filet. SO tender and delicious. I wouldn’t call myself a steak person..but it was SO TENDER. Last time I was at the restaurant I got to tour their dry-aging room!
Ohh then dessert. I had a couple bites of each. Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting (a fave of mine), open-faced ice cream cookie sandwich, and cheesecake. It’s weird…I love cream cheese frosting and cream cheese + lox, but have never been big on cheesecake.
My favorite of the trio was the fudgey caramel cookie + ice cream.
Such a fun evening.
Unpictured: Minor breakdown in the car on the way home because I have a love-hate relationship with being social. The struggle is real.
10:00-11:00pm: Did some eating disorder reading for work.
And that’s my day! I got out of the house more than usual, which is nice so I don’t get too cabin fevery. I’m hoping to post a day in the life when I spend the day working on blog recipes. Mid-August my schedule will change a bit as my work as an eating disorder dietitian picks-up. Until then, this will be a pretty typical day for me (minus the free fancy dinner).
My blog posting schedule will also be increasing a bit. More on that next week!
