Oh hey, friends! It’s time for a new edition I’m starting called This Is Life. I’ve been feeling a little blah about blogging lately and that usually means it’s time for a change. I’ve been wanting to add more personal happenings here. Honestly, I don’t feel like my life is that exciting but I’ve been getting more requests for day in the life posts so here ya go, a recap of life last Saturday!
6 a.m. – Dragged myself out of bed. This is sleeping in for me! The night before I was up way past my bedtime watching Seinfeld re-runs at the guy’s house. Usually I’d head out for my morning walk right away, but this morning coffee was a must.
6:15 a.m. – Went downstairs, made my usual black coffee with collagen and almond milk.
6:30 a.m – Responded to client emails then checked my website. Two weeks ago, this post went viral, and it’s still going viral. Seriously…it’s insane! I keep worrying about my website and am constantly checking it.
7:30 a.m. – Finished writing a blog post, edited a pin and social media shares for this old post. I use CoSchedule to schedule my social media. Last year they made updates that forced me to go back through old posts and make updates. Ugh…so many old recipes that need love!
8:00 a.m. – Went for a walk. It was 95 in Phoenix, 20 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. I knew it would be hot, but dang. It was HOT!
9:35 a.m. – Finished my walk. 9 miles in the books and thirsty as a camel!
10:00 a.m. – Made breakfast. Egg whites, spinach and turkey bacon.
10:30 a.m. – Worked on a freelance article and finished homework. FREEDOM!
12:00 p.m. – Hungry, but too tired to make lunch so I had Siggi’s yogurt with blueberries and hemp seeds.
12:30 p.m. – I hit a wall and needed to nap. I usually don’t allow myself to nap because I have trouble sleeping, but I was going out later and didn’t want to be a yawning zombie.
3:00 p.m. – Woke up from my nap, showered and got ready to meet Kelli.
4:30 p.m. – After driving in circles downtown looking for parking for 30 minutes, I FINALLY found her!
5:00 p.m. – We met at Cucina Cucina, had vodka sodas and caught up on life. She asked to see a pic of the guy and this was what he sent. Weirdo. He did send a real one shortly after, but some things I need to keep for myself so you’ll just have to imagine. 😉
6:15 p.m. – Dinner time. We both got salmon with roasted potatoes and zucchini. It had a sweet balsamic glaze on it. I need to re-create that glaze!
7:45 p.m. – We left the restaurant then this happened.
8:00 p.m. – Arrived at the movie theater to see the new 50 Shades. It was horrible, don’t waste your time or money seeing it.
11:00 p.m. – Home! Crashed immediately. The end.
And, this is life.
Do you allow yourself to nap? Winter friends, send cold weather my way!
