WIAW: Double Day.

i thought it would be fun to do a 'day in the life' sort of post for you guys again, so here we go! (as always, thanks to jenn for hosting WIAW!) also, i apologize for the iPhone pics- my camera's battery is dead!


5:30 am: alarm goes off. i was *thisclose* to just going back to sleep, but somehow i managed to convince myself to get out of bed (maybe sleeping in most of my workout gear helped?!?). i got all my stuff together, ate a spelt crisp with a thick layer of peanut butter and apple butter, and headed out the door.


6:00am: BodyPump class! This was my first 6am class since before track season in February, and it was SO nice to not be super crowded like it always is on the weekends. the lunge track definitely killed me!

7:15am: home for breakfast. i stopped on the way and got my new favorite drink from the money sucker starbucks - nonfat cappuccino with 2 pumps of vanilla, 1 shot, and extra hot! i also had some scrambled eggs with ketchup. i never eat eggs without ketchup....



7:45am: shower, throw on some shorts and a tshirt, pile my hair on the top of my head in a bun, and dash downstairs to quickly pack some food before leaving the house. i was definitely running behind today! i also wore my green converse (and figured that this picture was wayyyy better than my ragamuffin outfit, haha!)


8:30am: class.....it's so boring nowadays- only 3 weeks left and then it's graduation! i am SO EXCITED for this summer!!

some random doodles occurred..


12pm: lunchtime! we are super low on food in my house right now, so i packed some frozen berries (we were basically out of fresh fruit!), a packet of almond butter, and a to-go bowl of kashi golean that i added some low fat milk to at lunch.


2pm: out of school early on Tuesdays, woop woop! i wasn't having that great of a day- just one of those days- and since i hadn't done any cardio in the morning, i figured that i would feel better after i sweat a little bit at the gym. so that's where i went! i can't remember the last time i did two workouts in one day but today it definitely was a good idea. i did 40 minutes on the stairclimber, then about 5 on the elliptical to loosen up my legs, and then stretched and foam rolled. and walked out the door of the gym in an entirely different mood- it's crazy how much i love sweat!


3:30pm: home, and starving! i made a ginormous tropical smoothie with 1 1/2 c. frozen berries, 2 scoops vanilla protein powder, 1 tbsp flaxmeal, 1 tbsp lime juice, and about 1 cup of this new Fuze drink that my family got a big pack of at costco.



4pm: shower and then i tackled a bunch of stuff on my todo list. three cheers for actually being productive today! i've been quite the procrastinator lately (what senior isn't?!?) so i felt quite proud of myself for actually getting stuff done!

6pm: writing this blog post, catching up on reading blogs, pinning lots of stuff on Pinterest, and seriously wishing that i lived on the east coast......


7pm: dinner time! i actually snacked my way through the afternoon a little too much (i had another suzie's crisp with almond butter, some cereal, and some dark chocolate) - i think because i worked out so much today! i wasn't too hungry when dinnertime came around, so i just cooked up two fried eggs with laughing cow, and also had a banana with almond butter and dark chocolate shavings.



looking back on this post, i'm realizing that i didn't eat any veggies today! :( happens to the best of us, right? i think a grocery store trip is definitely in order for tomorrow!

9pm: snuggling with my baby girl, and GLEE!!!!!!!! and then crash in bed.


have you ever done a 'double day' of workouts?
best way to combat the afternoon munchies?

  3. Yes I always get the munchies when I'm working out a ton!!! My best advice is to preventively eat when you know you are going to be working out a lot. I know it sounds weird, but if you make an effort to consume more caloric foods in between workouts, then it will help ward off that delayed hunger :)

  6. I love day in the life posts! I sometimes do three mini workouts in a day, because it is nice to break them up and sweat a little throughout.
    Do you know who was the commencement speak at my collegE? Jane Lynch! THEN she came to watch my a cappella group sing! But I'm abroad so I wasn't there :(

  21. I love day-in-the-life posts. So much fun to read! :)

    Sometimes I end up doing two workouts in the summer when I have time, so I haven't worked out twice in one day in a while.

    I don't like bananas by 'em self, but the pb+choco shavings make it look SO delish! :)
