So, I'm a little bit nosy. I love it when bloggers write about their daily routines and what they eat and do throughout the day, because it's a socially acceptable form of stalking. So, I decided I'd write a post like that myself. Maybe you're not as nosy as I am and this will be completely boring for you, but we're doin' it anyway. Because this is my blog so I'm the boss.
This particular day was a pretty typical workday--obviously every day is different, but this one is a decent representation of my workweek schedule.
5:30 wake up, procrastinate getting out of bed, cuddle with Chewy.
6:00 make breakfast--I actually eat the same breakfast basically every day, because I love it. It's a green smoothie with spinach, avocado, collagen, fruit (today I did a nectarine, I usually also do banana and maybe some frozen berries or peaches) some orange juice, and water. I make a big smoothie and Dan and I split it, and I also have two hard-boiled eggs. This breakfast really starts my day off well--the nutrients from the fruits and veggies in the smoothie and the protein from the collagen and eggs keep me full and energized, and if I miss the smoothie for a day or two I can really tell a difference in my energy levels.
After breakfast I get dressed and ready for the day and make coffee (with maple syrup and nutpods creamer) and drink that on my way to work. I left for work about 7:00. Lately I've been listening to podcasts on my commute, which is a great way to fit in some time to learn about topics I'm interested in, but it also means that I DIDN'T KNOW JUSTIN BEIBER HAD A NEW SONG OUT because I don't listen to the radio and that is UNACCEPTABLE. I heard that song on my drive home today. I really like it.
10:00 I made these gluten free zucchini muffins over the weekend and ate one this morning for a snack. I don't make or buy baked goods very often (and now that I don't eat gluten I have to go out of my way to get them) so this was a treat, and it was totally delicious.
12:00ish Lunch time! Lunch was a big salmon fillet (with maple-mustard glaze--scroll down to Fueled Up Friday if you want that recipe) garlic green beans, and blueberries.
I should mention that in between all of this eating I'm working. You know, lawyering and stuff. You don't need to hear about that, but it's happening. It's not all just eating.
4:00 as my meetings wrap up for the day I grab my Shakeology from the fridge--I usually make it with a banana, a spoonful of peanut butter, almond milk, and a bunch of ice, but this day I was out of bananas (because we eat ONE BAZILLION bananas and apparently eleven was not enough for the week) so I threw some oats in instead. I was getting a little hungry at this point and this was the perfect bridge between lunch and dinner.
4:30 leave work, and head to Target to buy bananas and a few things for dinner. Kelly is always asking me to make tacos, and I don't make them nearly as much as he'd like. So, I did today. I grabbed some grass-fed ground beef, tortillas, and shredded cheese for the boys. I also bought pico de gallo, bananas, and some clearance workout gear (SCORE! Have you guys checked out Champion's stuff lately?? They've really stepped their game up.)
6:00 get home, greet all of the various human and canine boys, and start making dinner. Dan and Kelly had their tacos on flour tortillas, and I had mine on a salad--I used tons of pico so I didn't need any dressing.
After dinner the boys took Chewy for a walk and I headed to the basement to get my workout in--today was Cardio Fix Extreme. I'm on week four of 21 Day Fix Extreme (so, I guess round 2 since it's a 3-week program) but I haven't done the cardio workout every week. I'm swapping out some of the 21 Day Fix workouts for running, so skipping cardio makes sense, except that the cardio workout is KILLER so really it's worth doing. I can't even tell you how much sweat dripped off me during this workout...I didn't know it was possible, to be honest.
After everyone is worked out and walked, it's family movie time. Netflix and chill. Then we all get tucked in to bed and I read for a while before I turn the lights out.
If you guys like posts like this, let me know and I'll do more. Or, stay silent and at my mercy and I might do more or I might not. Difficult to say. The odd thing about this day is that I didn't eat any chocolate--I usually have something sweet at some point in the day (which I guess that muffin does count in that category). Lately I've been pretty into eating a toasted marshmallow after dinner, because how good are marshmallows?? We bought a bag when we went to the cabin and I've been roasting them on our stove. It feels important that you know that, even if I didn't do it on this particular day. Alright, that's enough sharing.
