This day was both long but uber-productive (minus the fact I did not make a budget or figure out which insurance to choose last night). For your reading pleasure, here is a step-by-step guide to a day in the life of The Healthy Everythingtarian herself:
6am: My alarm goes off and seconds later, the snooze button is promptly hit.
6:10am: I finally crawl out of bed and haphazardly throw on mismatched running clothes. I look like I’ve been hit by a bus. When you have curly hair as I do, the morning is always a surprise as to what shape your hair has been molded into from the night before (this morning: a Medusa + Carrot Top mix)
6:20am: I walk reluctantly out the door and begin my 4-mile run.
7am: I arrive home, stretch a bit before deciding I’m too dang hungry. I abandon stretching in favor of this:
Peanut Butter Puffins w/ skim milk + naner w/ AB
7:15am: Since I eat mondo fast, it takes only mere minutes to shovel down breakfast before hopping in the shower. I follow that up with getting dressed, taking my multi-vitamin and spritzing on perfume (Burberry London, in case anyone is wondering).
7:30am: To save myself time, I decide today is going to be a “no make-up day,” although I tell people it’s to let my skin breathe in the fresh air. In reality, I’m lazy.
7:40am: Out the door to grab a coffee and walk the 1 mile to work.
7:47am: I decide I am not feeling hot coffee after a hot run and choose this instead:
gun powder green mint iced tea
8:05am: I arrive at work, talk to my boss (who is leaving for Paris today – super jealous) and turn on the comp. I do the norm morning routine – check the e-mail(s), People.com and my bank account. I save the bank account for last because usually I try to put off knowing how poor I am for as long as I can. Then I work.
11am: My stomach is wildly grumbling. Enter in new fave snack:
Banana Nut Cheerios (sweet) + sunflower seeds (salty)
12:30pm: I take a working lunch, knowing the Internet guy could call at any minute…
more sweet red jewels (a.k.a. grapes)
veggie tikka masala w/ a Morningstar spicy black bean burger thrown in
2:30pm: The ATT repairman calls! My co-workers know how important this is to me, so one of them gives me the keys to her car to drive back to my apartment to meet him. I spend the next hour laying on the floor while Jerry plays with the antique wires (I live in an old building – I like to say it has “character”). I fiddle around wondering if it will ever get fixed….suddenly, all the lights turn green on the modem!
I HAVE INTERNET! THANK YOU WORLD!
3:45pm: I head back to work in a jovial mood. Then my dad calls to say he will be driving through Madison on his way back from a work event. You know what that means? Free dindin! I munched on a serving (and 1/2) of these honey wheat pretzels on my way back to the office:
locally made goodness
5pm: Daddio picks me up, and I show him the new apartment (ahem, flat). Then we head to the cutest lil’ pizza joint around the corner from my place where we have some kick arse salad + ‘zza:
spinach salad with strawberries, cucumbers, tomaters, feta, candied pecans + raspberry vinaigrette (oh yeah, and a doughy breadstick!)
a slice of pineapple red onion pizza goes missing...
as a substitute, Daddy Everythingtarian graciously let me photograph his sausage, green pepper and 'shroom pizza
6:30pm: Daddio has to leave and drops me back off at work to meet with my co-workers to go grab some dranks and spend some quality work family time together. I love them already.
A Wisconsin classic...Spotted Cow Beer
10pm: I arrive home after laughing my arse off all night. Blogging time – now that I have Internet, I am happily blogging from the comfort of my bare living room.
11pm: (Which for the record, is in 12 minutes) I crawl into bed, lights out and do the dang thang again bright and early in the morn. Minus the running.
Stay tuned for an extra special “This and That” post tomorrow…(insert witch cackle here)!
