Hello! I don’t have work today since I’m working Sunday, so I went to a 5:45am spin class this morning. I’m running on about 4.5 hours of sleep and am definitely going to take a nap soon! I wanted to do another day in the life post for while I work my summer job.
6:05am alarm goes off (with a day in the life post reminder)
Then I get ready for Crossfit and packed everything up for the day!
Then, I come downstairs to be greeted by a crazy puppy. Full disclosure-we’re having some behavioral issues right now.
Pre-Crossfit snack/breakfast: a little baking experiment-carrot oatmeal raisin granola bars!
6:45am: leave for Crossfit.
3 rounds- 20 double unders, 8 bent over rows, 100m farmer’s carry with 2 25# plates
kettle bell swings
The original workout called for burpees instead of wall balls but my hip isn’t that great so I subbed wall balls with a shallow squat
We then finished with some ab work.
8am: Clean up and change into scrubs. I’ve never actually gone straight from Crossfit to work before so this part was new for me.
8:15am: Hang out in car, eat, browse blogs.
9am: Start work. It’s a fairly slow day at the vet today.
1-2pm: Lunch break! I don’t normally work 9-6, but it’s one of my favorite schedules because it’s pretty normal. When I start later or earlier, I eat at either 11 or 2/3!
Leftovers: BBQ chicken, coleslaw, mashed sweet potatoes.
I eat lunch in the break room with coworkers and also enjoy a few break room snacks. One of the vets brought in Jamba Juice for us!
6pm: Done with work! I get out right on time today. It’s a pretty dark sky.
I was planning on going to the track, but I get a text from a friend wanting to hang out, so I spend time eating a snack and debating my options.
Plus 2 squares of dark chocolate
6:20 Decide to do a slightly shorter track workout. Regret eating dark chocolate because 2 squares of 72% is a lot of caffeine for me right now!
Track workout was originally 8x400m, but I end up with 5x400m. Given I’ve done 0 speed work lately, that’s good enough for me.
7:10pm: Arrive home, and make myself a quick and easy dinner. I’m not super hungry since I just had a snack, so I make some frozen veggie/potato snacks. One flavor is sweet potato, the other is broccoli. With ketchup. Yes, they are Spongebob shaped.
Plus s small slice of my granola bar with sun butter.
Then, I shower off all the animals and get ready to go.
8pm: Leave to make the 25 min drive to school where my friends are living for the summer. I arrive around 8:30.
After debating what to do, since I have a car we go to get boba. They realize how small my car actually is. It’s actually kind of ridiculous.
I ended up getting Rose-Aloe tea. I think it was rose tea with chunks of gelatinous aloe? I would have preferred pearls, but I actually had no clue what I was ordering-all I cared was that it was decaf, and my friend got this and knew it was decaf!
Around 10, we head back to campus and meet up with my other 2 friends. I stay there until around midnight, and am in bed by about 12:30! If I had work the next day, I definitely would not have been out so late!
What is your typical day like?
