I’ve debated back and forth about writing this post and joining Mom’s Little Running Buddies link up. Honestly, my life isn’t that interesting. But sometimes people think I’m a little crazy because of all the different things I do… and wonder how in the world I fit it all in. So! Here’s what my typical work week day looks like.

Wake up: 5:30 – 6 a.m.

I typically wake up around 5:30 or 6 a.m., depending on how long I am going to run that day. If I don’t run (which is usually one time during the week), I will get up a little past 7 (that extra hour or so feels AMAZING). 

I am NOT a morning person by any means so getting up this early was a struggle for years (basically the entire time that we lived in NYC). It has gotten better, but I still have my rough days of where I like to pretend I didn’t hear my alarm went off. 

 

Run! 

After waking up (and getting dressed), I stretch for about four minutes and head to the door to hit my run for the day. I typically get back between 7:00-7:15 a.m. and dawdle for another 10 minutes drinking water and playing with the cats (aka making them take pictures with me).

Get ready: 7:15 – 8:00 a.m.

I can usually get ready in about 30 minutes, but tend to move slower in the morning… getting ready is rather uneventful. Shower, dress, eat, do my hair and make up, brush my teeth, goodbye. 

 

Go to work: 8:00 a.m. – 6 p.m.

It takes me about 20 minutes to get to work in the morning (which I enjoy blasting country music the entire way!)… and so I get to work around 8:20-8:30, depending when I finally get out the door. Once at work (I work in marketing at a tech company), it’s usually a day of meetings, writing, project management, and more meetings. I typically leave around 5 or 5:30, depending on how bad I want to sit in traffic. 

Luckily I found a back way to get home that only takes 35 minutes. If I would drive home the way I drive in, it would take two times that. No thanks. 

 

Pretend to do stuff: 6 – 7 p.m.

I typically pretend like I am getting stuff done for the hour after I get home. This usually means I watch Seinfeld and snack on food because I am super hungry. I will start freelance work a little bit, but will probably get about 15 minutes done. 

***What I should be doing: During this time, I should actually be strength training. But instead I work on my couch fitness. That will change, I promise!

 

Make dinner: 7 – 8:30 p.m.

Usually I try to make meals that only take about 45 minutes, but sometimes I will get crazy and make something that takes over an hour.

Eat! 8:30 – 9 p.m.

Yep, we eat dinners late. It has been a habit that we’ve had forever, and while it’s kinda nice to eat earlier (you get so much more time in your night!), I just can’t manage to get it on the table in time. Someday.

Do everything I promised myself I would do: 9 – 11 p.m.

For the last two hours of the day, I basically live on the computer unless I am caught up with everything… and then I will crochet or knit my latest project. During this time, I usually work on blogging, catching up on social media and a lot of freelance work (I typically commit to more than I have time for, which always leads me to being stressed out). 

 

Sleep: 11 p.m.

We head to bed around 11 p.m. and I can tell you that it usually takes me less than two minutes to fall asleep (unless it’s Sunday, it’s a rough day on Sunday). 

 

…and then repeat! 🙂 As we’ve turned into old people, our routine has become more concrete and we spend less time going out during the week. Maybe that will change once the weather gets nicer, but I definitely don’t mind bumming around home.
