Hi friends. Good morning and I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I’m still out in Chicago visiting my youngest sister, but I wanted to share a typical day in the life for me (when I’m not traveling, that is). You can check out some other day in the life posts here, here and here.
6:30 Alarm goes off, and slowly make my way to the coffee maker. I drink 16 oz of water while I’m waiting for my coffee to brew. I’m trying to do this more regularly since we wake up dehydrated!
7:00-7:30 Some light blog reading, email clearing and light stretching. I eat a rice cake with PB for a pre run snack (recycled photo, so without the chocolate).
I’m not able to work out in the mornings often (aka I don’t get up early enough and I’m okay with it), but my first client wasn’t until 10 am, so I figured I could start the day with a run.
8:00 – Head out for a light 6 mile run. This is actually the farthest I’ve run since the Ogden Marathon. It actually felt pretty nice. I’ve been taking running very easy, like 2-3 miles at a time lately. I was sore the next day from this longer distance.
8:50 – Get back from my run, stretch, and take Tater for a light walk around the neighborhood. I then shower, make my lunch, and make an oatmeal bowl with protein powder, cocoa powder, peanut butter, blueberries, bananas and chia seeds and head out the door with another coffee.
10am – 12pm Meet with clients. I make a few phone calls for new clients to confirm their upcoming appointments. I also respond to some emails for my BLT virtual clients.
12pm – I eat my lunch, which is a chickpea spinach salad with a side of cheddar mashed potatoes.
For the potatoes, I simply cooked and mashed baked potatoes, and added a little bit of milk, greek yogurt, salt, pepper, paprika and lots of cheese and broccoli and it came out superrrr delicious.
3-7pm – Clients and charting. I snack on a sweet potato with peanut butter and some granola. Seriously obsessed with this snack combo right now, and this vanilla pumpkin seed granola has me smitten.
7pm – Rush home after a long day. Luckily, the hubs made dinner! When I work nights, I come home starving! He made this stirfry dish from Hello Fresh and it was amazing.
And dessert never fails. I am SO into Yasso Bars right now – my favorite flavors are cookie dough and cookies and cream. If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you may have caught on that those are my most favorite ice cream flavors and I alwaysss get them. I’m so predictable. I’ve tried the sea salt caramel once and it was good, but not like my cookie dough and cookies ‘n cream.
I’m really trying not to do any work when I get home, which has been so nice. I love just hanging out on the couch. So, I ate my yasso bar while we finished Big Little Lies and we’re into Billions. I really liked Big Little Lies – I never read the book though. Thoughts?
