Day in the Life (aka that day I ate every meal out.)
Sharing my Wednesday from this week!
6:20am: Wake-up, feed the dogs, brush my teeth, change into yoga clothes, hug Andrew goodbye, throw all my work clothes into a bag.
6:32am: Out the door + drive to yoga. Realize I don’t have my yoga mat. Realize I have no idea where my yoga mat is. Get to yoga and realize my yoga mat is in their lost & found lol…not sure how that happened!
7:00am: YOGA! I love when I snag the spot right by the window<3
8:00am: Shower at yoga studio + drive to breakfast. I ended up going to Sweet for 2 bacon breakfast tacos (their tortillas are doughy and perfect) and a half-caf vanilla latte. I was craving a creamy, dreamy latte and this was perfect. Their lattes are so fab.
9:00am: Get to office and set up for first client.
9:30am-11:15am: See my first (and only) client of the day. It’s an initial assessment and we go over time a bit.
11:15am-11:40am: Complete note on client.
11:40am: Leave office.
11:45am: Call Layne in Italy. I needed some sister time. I’m ready for my family to get back in the country! Two weeks is too long for me.
noon-ish: Lunch at Snap Kitchen.
I wasn’t hungry at all for this meal (I was feeling stressed about life, which tends to mess up my hunger cues), but I was heading to a doctor’s appointment and knew this was my chance to eat since doctors tend to always be running an hour behind :)
I went with a dish with ground beef + veggies + eggs + roasted sweet potatoes + a salsa. I paired it with a “turmeric tonic” (aka juice with pineapple, turmeric root, basil, apple and jicama) that was surprisingly SO good and fresh. It didn’t taste like turmeric at all.
1:30-3:30pm: Doctor’s appointment at the rheumatologist. My old rheumatologist stopped accepting insurance, so I had to find a new one. I ended up totally loving her. She sat down with me for 30 whole minutes! I feel like that rarely happens…usually my MDs are in and out of the room in 15 minutes, which I understand is necessary for insurance purposes. It was nice to have her sit down for so long and listen though.
She’s testing a bajillion things, including all the things you recommended she test in yesterday’s post (thank you for your ideas about what could be going on with me!). I know I have Raynaud’s, which makes my feet red/pink/purple most of the time. Since the Raynaud phenomenon can go along with other autoimmune disorders, I’ve been recommended to see a rheumatologist regularly in case something autoimmune does pop up.
She had ideas about/gave me direction to head concerning the tingling sensations in my legs. That makes me happy.
4:30pm: Met Andrew for an afternoon snack at Fat Cat Creamery!
I’ve mentioned Fat Cat before. They have ice cream, 2 soft serve flavors and epic cookies. They change their soft serve flavors seasonally and I always get super excited about them. Their current flavors are white chocolate & peppermint. I got them swirled together. It was good but I liked their past flavors, butternut squash & brown sugar cinnamon, better.
Andrew got the chocolate stout ice cream…typical. Give him beer and chocolate and he’s happy:)
5:00pm: We decided to walk across the street to have an early dinner at Cane Rosso.
I choose the salad and Andrew picked the pizza. Then we split both.
Caesar Salad that had really good croutons on it.
And the Cane Rosso Pizza that came topped with peppers, onions, sausage, mozzarella, parmesan and other stuff I’m sure.
6:15pm: HOME! I immediately showered and got in my PJ’s. They took a good amount of blood at the doctor and I was feeling a bit tired/lightheaded/woozy. Sooo I did a facemask.
…and turned on The Office, an old fave that reminds me of high school. We so need a new Netflix show to watch…any recommendations? We’ve watched House of Cards, Breaking Bad (da best.), The OA, and Narcos.
Later I made a decaf vanilla latte + had some Toblerone chocolate, while painting.
Look at the cute lil elephant I made! I’m really liking watercoloring. I have to look up inspiration of what/how to paint on pinterest. Having fun with it!
Hope you’re having a good week<3
