Day in the Life

IMG_3331Yes, I’ve picked up some of the best fashion tips by living in New York City.  This is one of my very best looks when I’m trekking through the subways on my way to work.  Attractive, no?IMG_3323Breakfast the most important meal of the day and pretty much always eaten in front of my computer.  I’ve been on a yogurt kick and even keep a bag of granola in my desk to top it all off.

Work, work, work.  Meetings, excel, phone call, powerpoint, screenshots, tracking reports, phone call, AIM (throoooowback), meetings, etc.  I’d actually much rather be busy than bored.  The thrill of accomplishing your work and checking off lists.

Recently there hasn’t been much time for the hour lunch in the cafeteria so I’ve stuck to grabbing a quick salad and hopping back to my desk for more work. With March Madness around the corner and Nascar races picking up, my schedule has been packed.

Lunch – Risotto, cauliflower, tempeh, carrots, and brussels sprouts – so much more fun than packing my own bland salad.  It’s the little things that get me through the day and I swear it tasted much better than it looked.  Salads and hot bars get a bad rep because they aren’t as photogenic as sandwiches.

I may have said this before but I used to make fun of the people who were so stressed they weren’t hungry or forgot to eat.  Well, I know what it feels like and realized the times I eat more are actually when I’m bored or trying to avoid a task. IMG_3325As of late I leave the office between 6:15 and 7, heading south to my gym for an hour or so and then walk home for dinner around 9.  I’ve realized that this probably isn’t the best idea seeing that I eat lunch at 12:30 and I’m starving by the time I get home.  Luckily I don’t run into anyone on the walk home because by this point I hit the “hangry” stage.  Slight exaggeration but all is good and well once I’ve eaten 🙂

Dinner – This cheeseburger was uhMAZING with grilled onions, melted cheddar and paired with carrots, tomatoes, green beans, and a hippo pretzel.  Yep, I made a pretzel in the shape of my spirit animal.

Dessert – I’ve been in a hot chocolate phase, using a generic Nestle brand in my cup of skim milk.  Perfect for ending the night on my new couch.

With that my friends, I leave you with the most clear and concise WIAW post yet.

  1. Oh man, I’d be shoving people out of my way to get home for dinner had I not eaten since 9 hours prior. Ha Ha! Nothing beats ending your day with something sweet.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday

  2. Hahhaha spirit animal. This is why I love you. I don’t know how you wait for dinner until 9! I literally have been stuffing my face before work at the running store at night AND picking up a second hot chocolate since I can’t wait until 8:30 to eat dinner. Teach me your ways of quelling that appetite! I am with you though, when I’m busy I forget to eat, which has been happening a lot lately, especially during crazy days at work.
