Yesterday was fun. And different. I will have a future post geared towards one specific event from the day, but for now, let’s jump into a day in the life post and take a look at my Thursday!
5:00 am – my alarm goes off, and I immediately roll out of bed without hitting snooze. I head to the bathroom to freshen up, hop on the scale to see how my cut is going, and then throw my workout clothes on. This is a recycled picture since there is no light at this hour, but you get the idea!
5:23 am – I throw my headphones and lock in my purse and head to the gym.
5:40 am – I’ve put my belongings in the gym locker and head to start my workout. My body immediately tells me that it’s an active rest day, so I walk 2 miles while reading an e-book, and then finish with a 1.3 mile run because I’m feeling better.
6:40-7:40 am – I drive 10 minutes to my apartment, shower, pack my food bag, and head out to work, sponsored by One Direction. There is zero shame, and I fully support the purchase of this cd.
7:50 am – I get to work and am at my desk by 7:50, so I head to the kitchen heat up breakfast, which is Laura’s lean ground beef, mashed sweet potatoes, and broccoli. I’m obsessed with this meal, so naturally it’s become my breakfast.
7:55 am – 10:55 am – I have an important task of creating the yearly email schedule for 3 companies that I oversee at work, and it’s time pressing, so I work hard on matching up deploy dates for all 3 companies for 2016.
11:00 -12:30 – I head to an hour long company-wide meeting, where we discuss the good and bad from our work trip last week, and once we are out, I make a shake for a pre-lunch snack. You are very welcome for this gorgeous picture. And yes, I do have positive affirmations taped to my monitor. 🙂
2:30 pm – I dig into lunch, which is chicken, mashed sweet potatoes and almonds. It’s so boring and I’m relieved this is the last tupperware of it, but this is what happens when you bs your meal prep for the week.
1:30 -3:00 pm – I peruse emails and respond to our members, and tackle a few things on Twitter.
3:00 pm – I’m done for the day! I worked through my lunch hour on Wednesday so that I could leave at 3. I head to downtown Concord to visit my buddy Sean at Runner’s Alley.
I’m due for new running shoes, and I wanted to partner with him on a post, so I spend time with him and Jeremiah, their social media guy until about 4:00. Next week you can expect a full-post geared towards my time spent with Sean and Runner’s Alley, which I’m so excited to share with you.
On my walk back to my car, I stop and take a picture of this pretty view. As I walk I consider moving to Concord once my lease is up. Most of my extended family lives there, and being more in the country would be nice. It’s only about 17 minutes from my current apartment, and about the same from my parent’s house, so it’s not a big change.
On my 17 minute drive home, I snack on the perfect hard-boiled egg. This fuels me through 20 minutes of Target shopping. I swear by Nom Nom Paleo’s perfect hard-boiled egg recipe.5:20 -6:30 – I prep chicken and ground turkey for tomorrow, pack my meals for the next day, and then cook myself dinner, which is chicken, butternut squash, almonds and walnuts cooked in coconut oil.
6:30-8:30 pm – I upload pictures and start typing this post up. Since my day was so busy, I finally sit back on my couch and catch up on blogs. I make myself a strawberry protein shake around 7:30, and then climb into bed to read until 8:30, which is lights out!
What was your day like yesterday?
Do you buy your running shoe’s from your specialty running store?
