I’ve been reading blogs for a while now and I think there’s no better feeling than scrolling through the internet and finding a new favorite.
My most recent find is Shot From The Street – have you guys read it? I’m officially obsessed – Lizzy is utterly fabulous!
Well, while doing some thorough blog creeping I stumbled across a “Day In The Life” post (yeah, some serious creeping) and I loved the idea so I thought I’d whip one up!
So, here it goes:
8:00 am – I am NOT a morning person. In fact don’t talk to me, don’t even make eye contact with me until I’ve had a minimum of one cup of coffee.
In fact, the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning is the thought of coffee brewing in the kitchen.
9:00 – 10:00 am – Blogging and breakfast – conveniently stationed by the coffee pot.
11:00 am – Time to get ready and start feeling like a functioning person.
Hair and teeth brushed, dressed, face washed and I’m a new woman.
Then it’s time to play. Every morning Lupin and I do some sort of game to get some energy out. Tug of war, chasing, fake fighting. Basically it looks like Simba and Nala running around pouncing on everything.
Yes, I do sing “I just can’t wait to be kiiiiiiing . . . ” Lupin harmonizes.
Then it’s time to crash.
12:00 pm – Time for lunch.
I hate having big, filling lunches. It makes me feel lazy and lethargic the rest of the day so I like to stick with salad, veggies and hummus or sweet potatoes (with bbq sauce – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it)!
12:30 – 3:00 pm – a little more computer time . . .
and a whole lot of laundry.
If you have a dog tell me, does your dog do laundry with you because Lupin does with me and it take twice as long.
He thinks my laundry basket is his own personal toy box so if you’re not watching, next thing you’ll know half of your clothes will be missing and you’ll find him laying on them like a king.
Oh, and more snacking. Obviously.
4:00 pm – time to workout.
I like to alternate days between running and yoga or pilates. I tried yoga for the first time a few years ago and didn’t love it (my teacher was very flighty and annoying). I recently decided to give it a try again and LOVE it!
If you’ve never tried it, you must! It makes you feel so strong, empowered and calm all at the same time!
5:00 pm – I always give myself a treat after a good workout.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing you’ll get a good treat at the end.
My yoga studio is right by my favorite coffee shop and (if you’ve been reading for a while), you won’t be surprised to see what my treat normally is . . .
5:30 pm – Now that the days are warmer and longer, I’ve been loving being able to take Lupin for nice, long walks.
Clearly, he hates it.
6:30 pm – Dinner time!
I’m still working on perfecting that quinoa ‘fried rice’ recipe I mentioned last week.
I think I’m pretty close to getting it, would you want the recipe when it’s absolutely perfect?
7:00 – 9:00 pm – time to eat and spend some quality time with my book.
10:00 – Midnight – No picture here but this is prime TV time. My newest very favorite show is The Carbonaro Effect but when that’s not on, I’ve been absolutely binging Impractical Jokers.
Carbonaro has me sitting on the edge of my seat, bowl of popcorn forgotten as I stare (open mouthed) completely entranced.
Impractical Jokers, on the other hand, will have me laughing hysterically while enjoy some good late night snacking.
I took my camera around on a day off of work and what I loved was even though it was just an average, nothing special day – finding ways to take pictures of the routine was so much fun!
