It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘day in the life’ type of post. Nothing about yesterday was super special, but I personally love rereading these posts. Given that this one documents life at 22 weeks pregnant, I thought I’d appreciate it that much more months/years from now!
So here goes…
It’s Thursday morning at 5:15 am. I’m up and out of bed. It’s cardio day, so I get ready and head downstairs for some quality time with this guy…
While breaking a sweat, I listen to a Foodist podcast. Forty minutes later, I head back upstairs. It felt so good to move!
Before making our breakfast shakes, I wash my face and apply my Herbivore Blue Tansy mask.
Then it’s breakfast time! I make our shake and guzzle down two glasses. Nothing tastes better in the morning!
After showing and getting ready, I start my work [from home] day (7:30ish). Emails, meetings, and presentations take up all of my time until about 11:00 when my stomach starts grumbling again. I reheat leftovers from the night before (Brittany’s Vegetable Lentil Soup) and continue working. This soup is simple yet delicious…and very filling!
Work, work, work, work, work continues until about 1:15, which is when I head out to my prenatal doctor’s appointment. Instead of taking the bus, I decide to walk since the office is only 0.9 miles away. Even though it’s cold out, I love breathing in the crisp air!
My appointment goes well…my doctor says I’m an A+ patient! Before heading home, I stop by the pediatrician’s office that’s located two floors up. My coworker Erin recommended it, so I scheduled a prenatal visit. The doctor I meet with is so nice (and smart!), and the office is clean and very kid-friendly. So great to check another thing off my list!
Not feeling a bus ride home, I decide to walk back. Vishnu’s home when I get back, so I give him a kiss and make myself a snack. Yogurt and a little PB for the win!
Back to work I go until about 5;30. After wrapping up a few things, I go through some paperwork related to the pregnancy. I also decide to register at the hospital online and sign up for a few prenatal classes. Tick, tick!
By this time, Vishnu’s standing in front of the pantry looking for a snack. I ask him what he thinks about pancakes for dinner, and his face lights up. I find a easy, quick, and delicious sounding recipe from the Minimalist Baker. You guys! This is a must try recipe. I don’t go down the vegan route (used an actual egg in place of the flax egg) but they’re still perfect…like big, warm, fluffy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!
Then it’s time for The Big Bang Theory. This week’s episode has both of us LOLing! Gotta love Sheldon and his quirks!
We clean up in the kitchen, make the guest room bed with freshly washed sheets (Roshni and Samir are visiting this weekend!), and chat for a while about random life stuff.
Around 9:00, I get ready for bed and settle in with my latest book – The Awakened Family by Dr. Shefali Tsbary. I’m not that far into it so I can’t comment in detail, but I will say that I love the intersection of psychology and parenthood. It’s so fascinating!
It’s about 9:45 and my eyes start to feel heavy, so I put the book down, turn off the lights, and go to sleep (not going to lie, it’s my favorite part of the day!). Vishnu’s in the living room playing a video game (boys!), but he’ll be in bed soon.
And with that, thanks for indulging me and reading about my day. Like I said, not super interesting, but hey, not every day can be!
Your turn – What’s a typical day for you look like? Do you have any particular morning and/or bedtime rituals?
