Every so often I think about writing a day in the life type of post. But I don’t because my weekday life is pretty routine – wake up, work out, get ready for work, go to work, come home, make dinner, hang out with Vishnu, eat dinner, clean up, watch TV/read, go to sleep…repeat the next day. Personally, I love the simplicity of it, but our M-F shenanigans wouldn’t make for a very interesting blog post.
Enter the hour by hour post, where I share a picture for every waking hour of a particular day. I didn’t come with this post format, but after seeing a few bloggers use it, I thought I would satisfy my need to share a microscopic glance of my life in this more creative way (read: non-boring way).
Hour by hour – November 5, 2013
The 6:00 a.m. hour
My morning started with a super windy outdoor run. I think I covered a little under 2.5 miles. Not too bad after almost a week with zero exercise.
The 7:00 a.m. hour
Breakfast was my favorite mocha protein smoothie. YUM.
The 8:00 a.m. hour
Coffee. My savior. Enough said.
The 9:00 a.m. hour
A little PowerPoint to start the work day.
The 10:00 a.m. hour
All my essentials in one place.
The 11:00 am hour
I went grocery shopping during lunch. The store is ~.25 miles away, so I walked. Not a bad idea going there, but on my way home I broke a sweat!
The 12:00 p.m. hour
I forgot to snap a picture of my lunch. It was delicious though – 1/2 an avocado, salsa, a sweet potato, and 2 fried eggs.
The 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. hour
I found this new to me Kind bar at the grocery store and devoured it somewhere in the 1:00 – 2:00 pm hour.
The 3:00 p.m. hour
The group chat my college friends and I have going is the best! It took the five of us a while to jump on the group text bandwagon, but I’m glad we did.
The 4:00 p.m. hour
Our office is ALWAYS freezing, especially where I sit. So today I decided to warm up with a cup of hot chocolate. Not the best but it did the trick.
The 5:00 p.m. hour
I’ve been wanting to make something using won ton wrappers for a long time, so when I happened to come across them at the store, I tossed them in the cart. So glad I did!
The 6:00 p.m. hour
Annnd…I decided to make Southwestern Samosas. More information to come in this week’s Par’s Picks post.
The 7:00 p.m. hour
Lots and lots of laundry to fold. Thank goodness my husband is the best folder in the entire universe!!!
The 8:00 p.m. hour
Typing up this blog post and a few chapters of Allegiant. Woot!
The 9:00 p.m. hour
The 10:00 p.m hour
Are your weekdays pretty routine?
In one word, how would you describe your “day in the life?”
