Day in the Life (Weekend Day)

  Jun 20, 2018  |  #Baby

Hi guys!

I love reading these posts and hadn’t done one since Camryn was born. So, here’s a day in our life {weekend edition}. This is from last Saturday!

2 am – Camryn stirs a little so I get up and feed her. We’re back down by 2:30.

6am – Camryn wakes up. She is usually up between 6 and 7, depending on if/how many times she’s been up throughout the night. We have nights where she sleeps through the night, and some nights she wakes up 1-2 times. It’s still kind of unpredictable!

I change her, make coffee and make breakfast. I’ve realized that she doesn’t love to eat right away (so unlike me – I wake up starving!). The mornings are actually my favorite time with her. She’s so bubbly and loves to “chat” while I drink my coffee. This usually consists of me making faces with her and copying her oo’s and aa’s sounds. She loves it. I also give her some time with her new piano mat. Tater also finds this fascinating.

Day in the life

6:45-7am – Feed her.

7 am – Take her and Tater for a walk. Now that it’s so hot here, I have to go either really early or much later in the day to avoid the hot sun.

7:45 – Wake Ed up since he’s on baby duty for the morning as I have an event to get to. I make a smoothie (breakfast #2) for the road because I stop and go for a quick run before the event. Need that post run fuel! I add Ripple pea protein milk (I’ve been drinking this since starting to limit dairy – I prefer this over almond/coconut milk because it has protein), frozen bananas, frozen mango chunks, frozen cauliflower, a scoop of chocolate PB2 and this protein powder). I’m in the market for a new powder that doesn’t have whey protein. Usually, I am all about whey but since limiting this dairy stuff for Cam, I’m going to try a new one. I’m thinking about trying this Orgain, plant based. Anyone had it before?

Day in the life

8:00- 8:20 – Quick run at a local greenway. I love how shaded it is!

9:00- 12:00 –  Hang out at a local health and fitness event that I’m working. I was on hand to talk about sports nutrition, and there were also free yoga and crossfit classes going on.

12:15 – Get home, feed Cam and make myself lunch. I heat up some leftovers of quinoa, eggplant, asparagus and a mushroom veggie burger. I added some hummus and pasta sauce too.

Day in the life

1:00 – 4:00 – I shower, do some cleaning/housework and try to put Cam down for a nap. She ends up only sleeping for 20 minutes, so instead of writing an article, we cuddle on the couch, do tummy time, and watch tv. Eventually, we both take a catnap on the couch.

6:30 – I leave for a press event. Sabor is opening a new location here in north Charlotte, so I go to the tasting and help promote the event. I’m so excited about this location because though there are a few closer to the city, this one is closer to us and I’m sure it will be a go-to for Taco Tuesday.

I got my favorite yuca fries and mexican street corn on a stick. I also got a side arepa.

Day in the life

8:15pm – Home to feed Camryn one more time before putting her down to bed. I enjoy a glass of wine with Ed before turning in ourselves. Bedtime is a lot earlier these days as I anticipate the early wake ups, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Do you have a local restaurant that you frequent often or love?

What does your bedtime routine look like?

    1. I can’t use it often because stevia bothers my stomach, but for my occasional smoothies I like Vega too.

  1. I call this, getting it all in!! You’re doing it! I can see you shifting to getting back to a balance of your old “you” and your new “you. I hope you new is staying caffeinated 😉

  2. The street corn looks delicious! Now that it’s summer and corn will soon be in season, I’m all about corn on the cob.

    When I was living at Rutgers, there was an awesome Mexican place within walking distance of my apartment. It really is the best and now there’s a location in Princeton which is so much closer so I”ll be hitting that up way more.

  3. I am allergic to dairy and I like Jarrow rice protein powder. I tried Orgain and it’s super tasty but it has what seems like a lot of erythritol in it and that tends to upset my stomach. Vega protein and greens is good too but it’s kinda pricey.

  4. Orgain upsets my stomach too! I use Vega or sunwarrior.

    Do you have to pump when you’re away from Cam during that long of time?

    1. I did pump once during the fitness event, since I was gone for a few hours. Otherwise I try to keep my outings short and feed her right before I leave and right when I get home.

    1. Thanks for that link to Natural Citizen! I had never heard of them. Just ordered a package of their protein.

  5. How did I never read your blog before? Loved reading about your day! The greenway where you run looks so inviting. I remember the days of putting the kids to bed early and sitting with hubby for just a short time until we couldn’t keep our eyes open any longer. Now I have grandkids. How did that happen?
