Day in the Life
I’ve had a few requests to do this style of post more regularly, so I documented throughout the day on Friday. Here we go:
7am: Wake up. Feed Maggie/let her out into the backyard to run around for a bit.
7:15am: Wash face/brush teeth/throw on clothes/fill a Kong toy with treats and give it to Maggie on the couch/out the door.
7:30am: Swing by Starbucks! I found a $5 giftcard when I was cleaning out my car earlier that week. I went with a grande iced half-caf latte – 2 pumps vanilla + 1 pump caramel.
7:35am: Stop into Shipley’s on the way to the office for my fave donuts.
7:50am: Get to my office. And enjoy breakfast – a sausage & cheese kolache + a buttermilk cake donut + a blueberry cake donut. This day I had clients a bit jam packed through lunchtime and this breakfast does a really good job of keeping me the right level of fullness for a long time without making me feel overly stuffed. Like, if I was to eat a massive bowl of oatmeal to keep me full longer than usual it’s just too filling and I’d be uncomfortable. Does that make sense?
8am-9:45am: Finish up blog post for the day and post it.
9:45am: Run to office bathroom and put on some makeup before client sessions.
10am-6pm: Client sessions. I had a bit of a busier than normal client day since I had an OB appointment earlier that week that I had to wait 1 1/2 hours at…so I ended up having to cancel some sessions on that day and move them to Friday. Having a mom in the medical field I have a lot of compassion for medical professionals and I get that sometimes they are just running behind. I see how much my mom cares and she really doesn’t want to make people wait…it’s just how it goes sometimes. Thank you to my clients who I moved! Always grateful for other mom clients who understand how OB appointments go sometimes.
Lunch was eaten quickly around 1pm-ish. Chicken + sweet potato + broccoli. I felt a surge of energy earlier that week and was able to cook some meals for the first time in a long time.
4pm-ish: pretzel + cheese + chocolate chip snack
6pm: Take out the office trash. Super fun.
6:05pm: Head to a local boutique to pick out some gifts. If you live in Houston, have you been to Emerson Rose in the Heights? I LOVE this store! They always have great gifts (for myself or others lol).
7pm: Home. Andrew was doing yard work so I hung outside with him. A lot of nausea has come back lately, so I sipped a gatorade while I sat outside. And Andrew covered me in bug spray because Zika.
8pm: Decided I would eat some cereal for first dinner.
9pm: Knew I wouldn’t sleep through the night if I didn’t have some protein, so made a bowl of cottage cheese topped with fruit.
Rest of evening was spent wrapping gifts for birthday celebrations we had this weekend…
+ finishing watching Ozark. I was really unimpressed by Ozark. Coming off epic show on similar topics (i.e. Breaking Bad and Narcos), I thought Ozark was totally lame. If they come out with another season I’d watch tho. Have you watched it? Any thoughts? I really hated how the baby was involved.
And now I’m off to do Monday. See you guys back here tomorrow :)
