Spend a day in my shoes

I’ve always loved “A Day In The Life” blog posts, where a blogger documents basically everything s/he does throughout the run of a day. It was difficult to remember to document it all, and I felt like I was wasting time writing stuff down, especially in the morning. So here we go, a day in the life of me from last Tuesday January 22, 2013:

Gotta be honest you guys. I don’t eat this healthy all the time. In fact, I stocked up on some fresh fruits while I was out the other night so you wouldn’t know that I ate CANDY for snacks throughout my day. Oops. Though, I did feel awesome the next day. So maybe I should probably cut down on the candy consumption…

Hope you enjoyed the post!

What does your daily routine look like?

  1. Where was the BF?! My mornings are sooo short compared to yours lol. I take 30 minutes to get ready. I hate mornings. But, generally speaking, after work there’s a lot of going into the kitchen and chatting to OH, going into the living room with OH and chatting, watching a bit of TV with OH, making cups to tea to drink, etc etc. Lol lots of sitting down and talking. If I go to the gym, I try and go at 6 too, though one of my classes starts at 7.\

    Nancy says: Oof! I didn’t realize I didn’t have him mentioned in this post at all. We have very different schedules (for work) and I always leave the house before my Boyfriend wakes up. As for that evening, I ate supper alone as he was exercising on his bike while I was at CrossFit, and then when I came back he was already gone to the pool to swim – then by the time I made the bed and got in, he arrived home (to eat supper, then head to bed while I was asleep). We lead busy lives! Usually I’ll take a night off and just spend it hanging out with him. Every single day is different than the other week nights, for instance last night we both took the night off and went to the movie theaters with one of our friends. I should really do a “week in my life” lol.

  2. You look super adorable in the asthma inhaler picture!
    and… why didnt you include the random times you stop to giggle, dance/jig and when you come to my desk to chat with your’s truely!!!?

    lol, fun post to read.

  3. Aah! Yeah – it’s quite easy for me to bump into my BF when I’m running around after work because he likes to sit and watch TV a lot, lol. Every day in the week is different for us too, what with different classes and socials. My schedule is a lot more regular than sean’s though, a bit like yours, although I start and finish a little earlier. :) We’re terrible with dinner times. Often really late because of my fitness classes and his job. We just finished dinner and it’s 9pm!
