In this funemployment stage of life I’m conflicted between being productive and completely relaxing. I’m finding myself wanting to do everything and nothing at the same time. Not a good combo, right? Most days there’s a good balance, and I do feel better when I’ve accomplished something, but I also want to take full advantage of this freedom.
Regardless, yesterday was a decently busy day so I wanted to post a “day in the life.”
Day in the Life of a Recent College Grad
5:45 a.m.– Snooze my alarm. I decide to skip my early morning run with my dad and sleep later. No, I don’t have to wake up that early to workout, but I really enjoy running with my parents. Sleep won this time.
6:45 a.m.– Wake up for real and watch the news before getting out of bed.
7:25 a.m.- Make breakfast. Since I’m in “life after Whole30” (final thoughts coming tomorrow) I made a smoothie bowl.
Base: Almond milk + banana + blueberries
Toppings: KIND healthy grains, coconut flakes, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, goji berries
8 a.m.– Finish breakfast and start working on a few side projects
10 a.m.– Run 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym. Scary side story…just as I was finishing on the treadmill an older man next to me fell off and hit his head. I’ve fallen off a treadmill before and it gave me flashbacks. I ran to get help and the staff called paramedics. By the time I left he was sitting up and laughing. Sheesh…what we get for trying to be healthy!
11 a.m.– Leave gym and go to Whole Foods + Target AKA the two biggest money and time suckers. Here’s a shot of my basket.
12:15 p.m.– Arrive back home and make a loaf of banana bread. This time I could test it! Hope to share it on the blog soon.
1 p.m.– Make and eat lunch. A typical salad bowl with toppings: avocado, chicken tenders, sunflower seeds, carrots and blueberries. Here’s a repeat picture of a very similar dish.
1:30 p.m.– Finish some projects while watching Grey’s reruns. If you aren’t watching Grey’s every day on Lifetime from 1-4 then you
have no life, probably have a busy life.
2:30 p.m.– Nap. Zero shame.
3:30 p.m.– Eat a quick snack of celery and cashew butter and leave for my afternoon job.
4:15 p.m. – 6 p.m.– Work
6:30 p.m.– Dinner. A hodgepodge of a meal…turkey tenderloins (love as a change), a purple sweet potato and roasted vegetables + peaches. This photo is “real” life, hence the already cut up foods.
7 p.m.– Start this blog post while finishing up some side work.
8:30 p.m.- Eat an apple and a few spoonfuls of Barney Butter while watching the primary recap.
9 p.m.– Catch up with my parents and finish this post.
10 p.m.– Bed. Getting up at 5:30 for a spin class. By the time this publishes my workout will be done. Best. feeling. ever.
