It’s funny looking back. A long day when I was in my mid-twenties looked a little something like this…
-Wake up at 7:30AM
-Head to work at 8:30AM
-Leave work at 5PM and head to a spin class downtown DC
-Meet up with girlfriends for dinner at 7PM
-Hop on the metro and head home at 9:30PM
-Watch an episode of Law and Order: SVU while I blogged at 10:30PM
-Hit the hay at 12:00AM
Boy I’d love to enjoy a long day like that again! My long days as a working mom are a little different, but I’ve learned the art of winding down after a long day. After picking my daughter up from daycare, making her dinner, and getting her ready for bed, I’m ready to relax.
Relaxing, for me, begins with making dinner for my husband and me. Whether I’m reheating leftovers or trying out a new recipe, I really love being able to enjoy dinner together after a long day. After dinner we both do our own thing for a little bit, writing and/or watching TV, but we both love having a little dessert before bed.
The new Fiber One Cheesecake bars are the perfect treat after dinner. I personally love throwing one in the fridge before dinner, that way it’s cold when I’m ready to enjoy it. Instead of fighting my sweet tooth, I’m learning to enjoy sweets in moderation and have found that Fiber One makes the perfect post-dinner desserts.
My days are quite different than they were 5 years ago, but I wouldn’t change them for the world. I love my evenings at home and the time I’m able to spend with my daughter and husband before bed. I love enjoying dinner, watching a little DVR, enjoying dessert, and blogging. It’s exactly how I picture winding down after a long day as a new working mom.
