Happy April 1. Happy April Fool’s Day. I tried to think of a good blog prank but decided WIAW was a better way to go ;)
This semester, Monday’s are a very “college” day for me with few responsibilities. I used to hate having so much down-time, and I still do to an extent. However, I manage to fill my day just fine (with the help of naps and Netflix).
6:30 a.m.– Wake-up (without an alarm) and check social media. I’ll admit, this is not a good habit to do first thing.
6:45 a.m.- Gym. I spend some quality time with Mike & Mike on the treadmill. I’m a big sports fan and Mike & Mike is my go-to morning show before the Today Show. I run 4 miles, stretch and do two one-minute planks.
7:45 a.m.– Shower, make bed, make breakfast.
8:00 a.m.- Eat breakfast (2 bowls of oatmeal with Barney Butter and strawberries) while reading blogs and watching the Today Show.
9:15 a.m.- Get ready for class and pack my bag for yoga.
10:00 – 11 a.m.- Slow flow yoga. I don’t normally go to this slow flow class but I was in the mood for it today.
11:15 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.– Class. I only have one class on Monday, hence why it’s one of my favorite days.
1:00 p.m.– Get back to my apartment and make lunch. Please tell me you eat salads out of large mixing bowls, too? My salad had mixed greens + baby carrots + deli turkey + avocado + walnuts + Dijon dressing. Bad picture angle, I know.
1:20 p.m.– Quickly finish and submit an assignment that’s due at 2 p.m.
2:00 p.m.- Nap.
3:00 p.m.– Watch an episode of “The Blacklist,” my new favorite show.
4:00 p.m.– Start working on assignments due later in the week. I don’t feel as pressured on the weekends to “get ahead” in my classes because I know I have Monday to work. That can be a good thing and a bad thing.
I had a kombucha for a necessary “wake-me-up” snack while studying for a sports law exam.
5:00 p.m.– Start making dinner. I made lemon-rosemary chicken thighs (which I’ve been loving lately), zucchini noodles with sliced almonds and, of course, a sweet potato with coconut oil and cinnamon.
6:00 p.m.– Eat dinner.
6:30 p.m.– Homework and KIND projects. I put together goodie bags for an event I have later this week.
8:00 p.m.– Snack on an apple and almond butter. Trader Joe’s was completely out of creamy almond butter so I decided to branch out and try crunchy almond butter. I. Love. It. I used to be Team Creamy but I don’t know where I stand anymore. I ate it straight out of the jar with a plastic spoon, how college of me.
8:15 p.m.– Finish homework, read blogs, do some blog work.
9:30 p.m.– Pack my bag for the gym in the morning (I ALWAYS do this the night before).
9:45 p.m.– Watch another episode of “The Blacklist” before falling asleep.
Oh how I wish my Monday’s could be like this forever.
