day in the life: eats, work, movement
This day in the life is from Tuesday this week! I haven’t shared a time break down one of these in awhile!
6:45am: wake-up + breakfast
I made a batch of my pumpkin snickerdoodle baked oatmeal this weekend and have been having it for breakfast topped with almond butter and maple syrup. Served along with an iced vanilla latte. I’m still making my lattes with cold coffee + milk + Coffeemate Simply Bliss vanilla creamer.
7am: Respond to some blog comments. That was the day I posted this post and I was loving the comments I was getting so far. Thanks, guys :)
8am: Went to a jump board class at a pilates studio. I never had heard of jump board classes until a couple months ago. I think that are INSANELY fun.
9am: drive home, give maggie a couch-shaped treat for not eating the actual couch when I was out, quick shower
9:20am: ate an oatmega bar for a snack. Now that I’m able to look at my eating with curiosity and not judgement, I realize that I really don’t eat differently on days I do more movement than days I do less movement. I’m always a 3 meals + 3-4 snacks kind of person.
9:30am: left for work.
10am: saw my first client of the day.
11am: chart on client, ate lunch, talked with coworker. This was one of those days that I felt bloated all day. Not really sure why. I still felt slight hunger, but it was under a layer of bloated-ness. Not ideal, but so it goes.
For lunch that day I had packed an Amy’s Tortilla Casserole Bowl. I hadn’t tried this Amy’s meal before…LOVED IT!
Some days it’s easy for me to switch between seeing clients and working on the blog, this was NOT one of those days. I couldn’t get in the groove.
noon: saw my next client
1pm: chart on client, call a client’s therapist to coordinate care. Before starting this job I didn’t realize how important collaborating with therapists was.
Responded to some more comments.
Ate my blueberries.
2pm: saw next client
3pm: needed a break, so went on a very short walk around our parking garage.
Ate my chocolate covered almonds + chocolate covered dried cherries I had brought for a snack.
3:30pm: next client
4:30pm: last client of the day
5:15pm: head home from the office
5:45 pm: We had invited over our friends for chili + cornbread, so I prepped the cornbread. I loosely followed this brown butter cornbread recipe. I had made the chili the night before so I just had to heat it up.
I busted out our, “let it snow” napkins because I wanted to pretend it was colder than it was outside haha.
7pm-9pm: dinner + hanging out + drinking wine. I’m all about making weekdays feel more like weekends, so having friends over on a Tuesday does just that. Andrew and I are lucky to have two sets of really great couples friends in Houston.
9pm: put together and scheduled the Body Image Challenge for the next day (Are you getting it? If you are I hope you enjoy!)
9:30pm: put together the next day’s blog post (while watching The Mindy Project<3)
10:30: made a mug of hot chocolate using this recipe (I doubled the amount of chopped chocolate!)
