6:00 AM. Woke up.
6:00 - 7:00 AM. Fed the dog, made coffee, uploaded my blog post, checked e-mails/pinterest/facebook, and read blogs in my PJ's at the dining room table.
@6:36 AM. Breakfast Phase I: All Bran, Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs, 1/2 banana, and cow's milk.
7:00 - 11:00 AM. Worked on my research grant proposal at home while sitting at the dining room table in my PJ's and drinking black coffee and water. Because this kind of writing is a painful task, I take plenty of pinterest/twitter/walking/blog breaks. This is my (somewhat unconventional) writing process and I've learned to embrace it.
@7:27 AM. Breakfast Phase II: All Bran, Kashi Simply Maize, 1/2 banana, and cow's milk.
@10:21 AM. Mid-morning snack: Gala apple. Followed by a 15-minute walk around the block with my pup.
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM. Workout: 35-minute stationary bike ride + cool-down walk with the pup. Followed by showering, gym-bag packing, lunch-bag packing, getting dressed (finally), and driving down the street to my office.
@12:11 PM. Got Dressed. Jeans: Gap; tank and sweater: Banana outlet; blazer: Target; shoes: Miz Mooz.
@1:45 PM. Lunch: a romaine lettuce salad with grape tomatoes, carrots, raw zucchini, cottage cheese, raw almonds, Craisins, and balsamic vinegar.
@2:38 PM. Afternoon Snack Phase I: carrots sticks and peanut butter. I've learned that depending on what I'm working on - I get really snacky (i.e., bored and desperate to procrastinate) in the afternoon. On days like this I try to break my afternoon snacks up into multiple eating sessions.
@3:37 PM. Afternoon Snack Phase II: 100-calorie pack kettle corn.
4:45 - 5:30 PM. Drove to the gym and changed into workout gear.
5:30 - 6:30 PM. Workout: 60-minute Body Pump class.
6:30 - 8:00 PM. Drove home, chatted with the neighbor, did the dishes, showered, and put PJ's on. Cooked dinner while catching up with the boyfriend.
8:00 - 10:00 PM. Relaxed on the couch with the boyfriend, ate dinner and snack, watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Top Chef Masters. I usually pass out on the couch about 9:45 and miss the end of my favorite shows...
@9:00 PM. Dessert: Envirokidz Koala Crispies, ricotta cheese, and whipped cream.
10:00 PM. Goodnight.
And that, my friends, was all you ever wanted to know and more about my less serious day on Wednesday, September 26.
