I feel like it’s not uncommon for bloggers to say “no day is ever really the same” and honestly, while it may be true, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s interesting to get a glimpse into those days.
This isn’t my first time sharing a “day in the life” style post, but since I only blog Monday-Friday, I seem to assume, you’re only interested in what’s happening Monday-Friday. Maybe that’s true or maybe it’s not, but I figured I’d share a little insight into what my weekends look like with a day in the life weekend edition!
(My most recent Day In The Life post!)
Side note – I decided to track my day on Sunday and as I finish writing this post, I’m amused that it also answers yesterday’s Daily Aspire prompt. Totally an ironic coincidence!
7:00am – Alarm goes off, snooze.
7:11am – Alarm goes off again and I scroll through social media on my phone.
7:20am – I get out of bed and head almost directly to the kitchen to pour myself an iced coffee.
7:24am – It’s a much needed laundry day (plus my fitted sheets keep coming off my bed – annoying!) so I strip the bed and remake with new sheets that stay put! It’s the little things, people!
7:32am – Ahhh…so much better!
7:41am – Breakfast time! I prep 2 rice cakes with coconut oil, cinnamon and banana, plus my giant cup of iced coffee.
7:58am – Laundry time! They ask we wait until 8am to use the laundry rooms and since I have to work later, I need to be sure I’m the first to the machines! Two loads in!
8:12am – With laundry in, it’s time to start food prep. I save myself a LOT of time by going with the precut veggies at Trader Joes. I don’t always do this but lately, it seems to be the only way I make semi-interesting and varying meals. (ha!) During this time, I’m also switching laundry as necessary and getting ready for job #2.
10:45am – I have to be at work at 11 and it’s a beautiful day out, so I walk. It’s only about a 10 minute walk, so it’s definitely not bad on a day like this.
11am – We open and can tell it’s going to be a SLOW day. I can’t say I blame everyone for enjoying the sunshine instead of coming in. I make sure to take my lunch break outside, like I did Saturday night to enjoy it a bit myself.
6:15pm – Off work and I walk home, change into my running gear, eat a rice cake to tide me over and drive to a nearby new-to-me trail.
6:50pm – I’m still trying to talk myself out of the run because I’m exhausted, but I’m dressed, I’m here and I promise myself it’s okay to keep it short since I’m tired and it’s definitely warmer than I’m used to running. It’s a short walk from parking to the trail head but it makes the perfect warmup.
7:11pm – Run done, back at the car and headed home.
7:30pm – Dinner is a mix of food prep extras and hardboiled eggs. It may sound like a strange mix but it was actually quite delicious and served me well!
8:00pm – I work on Monday’s blog post, chat with friends and try to get everything ready for the week. The night is just FLYYYYYYING by and I don’t nearly get done everything I hoped.
10:00pm – Later than I would have liked but I’m finally climbing into bed. I scroll through my phone for a few before turning it off and falling asleep.
Side note – usually my nights consist of some nighttime tea and lavender oils dabbed on my wrists, neck and temples but I was so tired and the night got past me that I forgot. I had a pretty horrible night sleep and I’m sure it’s related.
What do your weekends usually look like?
