I thought it’d be fun to start a series called Day in the Life, where I randomly share a day with y’all. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I did this once back in September but would like to do it more regularly as a way to show you how my days go. It will not be on a set day, as I want to show you different days and how I have to adjust things based on whether I’m at work, playing sports, hanging out with friends, or relaxing at home on the weekend.

5:45AM – Alarm goes off
6:00AM – Started the day with a glass of lemon water. Yesterday morning I woke up feeling extremely bloated. I ate very healthy this past weekend, but I still have my holiday eats hanging over my head and on my hips.
6:15AM – 45 minute weight lifting session at the gym with Neal. I stuck to the machines, going around the room doing 3 sets of 8 on each machine.
7:00AM – I made myself a cup of coffee with creamer (3PP) and got ready for the work day.
8:20AM – I hoped on the metro train and read one of my new favorite magazines, Everyday with Rachael Ray.
9:00AM – Arrived at work and enjoyed my breakfast at 9:15AM. For breakfast I had a Weight Control packet of oatmeal (4PP), a jar of green juice (2PP), and water.
11:50AM – I enjoyed my lunch at my desk while working on e-mails. For lunch I had 2 cups of lettuce (0PP), ground turkey seasoned with taco seasoning (4PP), and salsa (0PP).
1:00PM – I walked 1 mile down to Bank of America, grabbed a grande skinny vanilla latte (only drank 1/2 of it – 2PP), and walked the mile back to work.
2:30PM – I started feeling really nauseous, hence only having half of my coffee. I headed down to the store to grab some pretzels and a sprite zero to calm my tummy. It did the job! (5PP)
5:00PM – The work day ended and I headed straight to the metro.
5:45PM – I arrived home and was greeted by this adorable boy!! I took Theodore outside and played with him for a while before getting ready for football.
6:25PM – I got ready for football practice and put on my favorite Sweaty Bands headband.
6:30PM – I made a pre-football dinner with P28, 2 tbsp peanut butter, and 1 banana (12PP).
7:30PM – Arrive at IMP Fitness in Chantilly and tackled my first workout with my team.
There were 5 stations set up, with 3 exercises at each station. We had to do each exercise a certain number of times before doing the next exercise. At each station we did as many rounds of the exercises as we could for 4 minutes total.
- Hang cleans
- Mountain climbers
- Push pulls
- Step ups
- Kettle Belle Swings
- Jump rope
- Toe ups
- Push press
- Jumping jacks
- Push-up chest taps
8:55PM – Left practice and headed home. Arriving at 9:29PM.
9:35PM – I was greeted with flowers and an adorable card from my husband. Yesterday was our 6 month anniversary and I truly appreciated the flowers and the card!
11:00PM – Headed to bed. Not as early as I had hoped, but it is what it is.
All in all, it was a good day. I woke up this morning feeling really emotional about my weight loss (more on that later this week) so I’m hoping this will turn around today.
