Hi friends, today I want to share a Day in the Life (1-25-19) edition! I haven’t done this type of post in almost 2 years, can you believe that!?! Remember, these style posts are just a small peek into my day to day life. Every day my day looks a little different, but at the same time, we have a schedule that we pretty much follow. On this particular day it was a Friday and on Fridays, I usually do errands, cleaning, laundry…it’s my G.S.D. day (get-$hit-done) made famous by Megan from Honey We’re Home.
Ok here’s a rundown of my day…
Wake up, 5:00 am!🌄
Every weekday morning I wake up at 5 AM, all the time. On the weekend my alarm doesn’t go off but, I wake up between 5:30-6:00, whether I want to or not. My body clock just knows that it’s time to wake up.
In the morning is when I have my quiet time, drink my coffee (uninterrupted by kids👍), meditate (something new I started)…
…Journal (5-10minutes), talk to Jarret before he goes to work, check my blog, shower and start getting the kids ready for school.
7:15 am we leave to take Bryce to school.
On this particular day, the reel feel was 9°F❄!
When I take Bryce to school, the girls are usually still in their pajamas, and sometimes they are still eating their breakfast in the car.
It takes about 20 minutes from door-to-door.
When we get back home, the girls have to get dressed, we have to get their hair combed and jackets & backpacks all need to get on in the patter of 30 minutes. We have little room for error, about 5 minutes.
Something new is the girls ride the bus to and from school 🏫, this is something new we started and so far it’s working out great!
After I saw the girls get on the bus, I walked back to the house and I switched the load of laundry. I ate my breakfast, earlier that morning I drank my green smoothie, did whatever dishes needed to be done and then took my supplements.
9:00 am start work!💼
On this day I was putting the finishing touches on how to make Shredded Taco Chicken in the Instant Pot and making my thumbnail in PicMonkey.
After I was done switching the laundry again, I went to Target really quick to get my favorite protein powder that was on sale that week. Buy two and get a $10 gift card! Which I turned around and used it to pay for a few other things.
Then I came home, folded the laundry, put it away and headed to the gym.
I go to the gym before I have to pick up Bryce from school in the afternoon because it’s on the way and it works out better that way.
After I picked up Bryce from school I got myself a special coffee!☕ I have scaled way back from the amount of coffee I was drinking, which was relatively not that much but, I scaled back to one cup of drip coffee in the morning and a specialty latte on Friday and I’m not holding back on what I order or the calories, give me all the whipped cream…this is my treat to making it to Friday, lol!
Now that I had picked up Bryce, a prescription and got my coffee, I had about 30 minutes before the girls came home, so I sat down and watched a new YouTube video from Jen @prettyneatliving.
Mama is clocked out!⏰
A lot of time went by after I was sitting and enjoying my coffee. I got the girls off the bus, fed them all Dominos Pizza (Momma’s night off), finished the laundry, cleaned up the kitchen and now it was time for me to clock out.
The girls were watching the Angry Birds movie, I was working on finishing The Great Alone (which I highly recommend!), Bryce was building Legos in his room and we were waiting for Jarret to get home from work.
That’s was my Friday on January 25th, 2019!
Have a Great weekend and I’ll talk to ya soon,
