Happy Friday! Today's topic on the DC Trifecta linkup is A Day In The Life. Wow, you are going to be so impressed...NOT. I picked a typical workday. (Weekends are a little more exciting around my house, I promise.)
|Is my breakfast |
a Rorschach Test?
On running mornings, I get up around 5:30. My typical weekday run is 4 to 5 miles in the 'hood. I don't eat anything beforehand but may take a few sips of juice to put something in my very empty stomach. My post run breakfast is usually low sugar peach oatmeal topped with blueberries and milk. I don't drink my first cup of beloved coffee until I get to work.
|I shovel these all day long!|
My kids get themselves to school (Hooray) so I just have to get myself together. Using the bathroom counter as a barre, I stretch while drying my too thick hair (because it takes so darn long!). I work in a specialty line of financing that is quite stressful. But, it's not exciting...your eyes can glaze over. It's OK. Mine do.
Throughout the day, I eat something every 2.5 to 3 hours to keep my blood sugar regulated. If I take a lunch break, I run errands or will occasionally meet a friend for food or coffee. This is super exciting stuff, eh?

I usually cook about 5 nights a week. Everyone sits down together and catches up. Some nights we'll eat at a nearby Mexican restaurant or I'll pick up Thai food on my way home (red curry chicken with broccoli is my favorite). Once I get home, I do not like to go back out. I'm home. I'm done...at least mentally.
After cleaning the kitchen, I do the laundry. I also read a few blogs and watch a little TV. Before bed, I foam roll, stretch, and do a few exercises --- what I like to collectively call HoGa. I'm in bed fairly early as 5:30 rolls around again quickly.
I think I have everyone beat on the Boring Scale.
Tell me about your more exciting day!
Thanks to the lovely ladies with the DC Trifecta!
