Hey friends & happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.. I know I sure am! I feel like I haven’t done a day in the life post in quite some time, so I figured today would be a great day to show you my Tuesday. It was a little different than my typical work week day, so let’s have some fun!
I woke up at my usual time; 5 am, and got my bags ready for the gym and work day.

This was actually an active rest day for me, so I spent my morning on the treadmill, alternating between a walk and a light jog. On active rest days I like to move around with light cardio, but nothing that will tax my body. A slow, light jog is what I prefer, and usually this really helps my legs recover from a leg workout. This is what works for me, and every one is different, so keep that in mind. What works for me as an active rest day might not work for you, and vice versa.
Once at work at 7:20, I showered, got dressed and warmed up my breakfast, which was oatmeal topped with peanut butter, slivered almonds and maple syrup. I’m still using a banana extract in my oats, which makes for a flavor explosion!
I work for a good chunk of the morning on creating newsletters, before digging into my mid-morning snack around 11, which is a Fiber One english muffin topped with 2 tbsp of JIF Natural Peanut Butter.
I continue working for several more hours until 2, where it’s time to go act! One of our company divisions trains our clients per se, so I volunteered to act in one of their commercials. We did this from 2-3, and it was definitely a fun break in the normal work day!
Around 3:20 I broke for a mid-afternoon snack, which was a mini-sized FitCrunch bar. LOVE these! I found them at Walgreens, but I’ve heard select Walmart’s also carry them. Mine doesn’t (Hooksett). The macros are great! 8 g fat / 14 g carbs / 16 g protein.
I left work around 4 for an impromptu afternoon of fun! We met at Popovers and then proceeded to spend the rest of the evening chatting and all of that good stuff!
Homegirl didn’t have a late night at all, and I was in bed reading by 8:30!
What was the highlight of your Tuesday?
