Day In the Life of an RD

Hey there! It's Friday eve and I thought it would be fun to do a different kind of post today. I wanted to share a peek into what a day in the life looks like these days. Fun fact-the last time I did a post like this, I was still an intern! Feels like forever ago. Things have changed quite a bit since then. These days, my schedule varies throughout the week but this is a fairly typical picture of Wednesday's around here. Check it out: 

7:00-7:30 am-Alarm goes off, I roll out of bed, and make myself some coffee. Currently loving the Pumpkin Spice K-cups from Trader Joe's. I sit and drink my coffee for about a half hour and read some news (love the Skim!) and typically, the latest She Reads Truth study. 

7:30-7:45 am-Make and eat breakfast. My meals vary and some days all I can do is grab a bar as I'm heading out the door. This isn't ideal but it works on the days I'm running behind. Yesterday though, I ate peanut butter toast with cinnamon and honey. Delicious!!!

7:45-8:30 am-Shower and get ready for work. Pack my snacks and bag for work. 

8:30-9:15 am- Hang out and work on a few blog projects and other behind the scenes stuff (newsletter coming soo soon! Stay tuned).

9:15-9:30 am- Drive to the hospital where I work 30 hrs/week. 

9:30-10:00 am-Walk into work, realize I don't have my badge and turn right around to drive home, pick it up and come back. You win some you lose some 

10:00-3:30 pm- This was a longer Wednesday for me at the hospital since I had a meeting scheduled in the afternoon and had to move to a new office in the morning. I was able to get some work done in the middle of the day, then finally got to head home.

3:30-4:30 pm-Head home and have "lunch." Yesterday's meal of choice was leftover pancakes. Not always glamours "Instagram worthy" foods featured at each meal. But still satisfying. 

4:30-6:30 pm- Spent some time relaxing, picking up and cleaning my apartment/practicing for a group exercise certification I have coming up. <--- More on that update soon too!

6:30-7:15 pm-Pack my lunch for tomorrow, snack on some other leftovers and chips+salsa for dinner since I had a late lunch and head out to meet a friend for a drink.

7:15-9:45 pm- Hang with my friend for a while then head home, finish writing this blog post and watch a few episodes of Parks and Rec.  

9:45-10:00 pm- Wash face, brush teeth and crawl into bed at a decent time. Still working on my better sleep project!

And that was my day! Hope everyone has had a nice week and has some fun/relaxing plans for the weekend. See you back here next week!
