Here’s a glimpse into my life these days… A snapshot from Tuesday, August 6, 2013.
4:55AM – First alarm goes off and I hit snooze. I’m up and out of bed at 5:05AM.
5:20AM – I mix together my Advocare Spark, put on my heart rate monitor, and hit the road.
6:00AM – Arrive back home after running a 5K with Neal (3.21 miles).
6:30AM – After showering I make breakfast. 2 eggs and an english muffin topped with pimento cheese and tomatoes, served alongside a homemade cup of iced coffee.
6:50AM – Pack 2 snacks and my lunch for the work day.
7:10AM – Off to work, with the rest of my iced coffee in tow.
7:45AM – Arrive at work and immediately create my to do lists.
11:30AM – Snack time! I enjoy the Chobani first and then eat half of the Luna bar.
1:15PM – Finally lunch time! I enjoy this homemade couscous salad (couscous, feta, cherry tomatoes, and chickpeas) and the almonds. I was too full to eat the grapes so I saved them for later.
4:15PM – I head home and go straight to the dog park with Theodore. While at the part I ate my grapes from earlier.
6:30PM – We’re all back at home and settled in. I make my way to the kitchen and start cooking dinner. I started by making a jalapeno-less pico de gallo. I combine a large tomato, small red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper… delicious!
For dinner I made a Mexican stuffed portobello mushroom cap… I first roasted a portobello mushroom cap at 425 for 15 minutes…
Next I filled it with refried beans…
Topped it with Trader Joe’s Carne Asada…
and finished it off with the homemade jalapeno-less pico de gallo. It was an absolutely wonderful dinner!
7:45PM – Target run!! Neal and I were on a mission to buy pillows, paper towels, shampoo, and cream rinse (aka conditioner).
8:15PM – Made it to the pillow aisle… and boy was it empty. I figured it was due to all the kids going to college, but it was a little weird to come across the limited selection of pillows.
8:45PM – Back from Target and ready to snuggle with the pooch while I work on a blog post.
10:30PM – Bed time! Although I’ve been aiming for 10PM, 10:30PM wasn’t too bad!
