A Day In The Life

Day in the life posts are some of my favorites to read because as bloggers I think we envision fancy coffee breaks and lots of events every night to keep us occupied- oh is that just me?! I decided to capture a regular day for you all - nothing fancy, nothing shiny just real life!
Day in the Life
6:00 AM - Alarm goes off and I'm wide awake! I make sure my post has gone live and then I bounce out of bed - careful not to wake Gary since he isn't a morning person!
6:15 - I take my spot on the couch and you can find me here for the next 45 minutes as I make my way through my morning reads! Those of you that post right at 6:00 AM or earlier - THANK YOU!
Between 7:00 and 7:30 I'm usually making my way between our bedroom and the kitchen juggling getting ready, putting on makeup and making us breakfast. I take mine to go! 
7:40 (yes I'm that accurate): I make my way to the train and thankfully my commute isn't too bad since I'm at my desk by 8:30 AM. Before the day gets started I try to read a few more posts and then the business day starts!
9:00 - 12:00 - this is the part of my day that really varies because I can be bouncing from meetings to actually working on pitches that we have to get out the door. I'm helping to create a lot of new content so its very creative.
12:30 PM: LUNCH! Again another part of my day that varies but I decided to skip the gym and have a salad with my sister outside! We work very close so it's a treat to see her so often!
The rest of the day flies by in a flash doing a lot of the same from the morning and I find myself with a little downtown around 4:45!
I plan out some of the posts I have for the rest of the month (if you haven't downloaded this printable link yet do it, its the best!)
5:30 PM: Didn't take a picture of this, but I hit the gym for a quick run and two rounds of my favorite 7 min workout - do you have the app yet? I mentioned it back in June and have been using it ever since! I strategically picked a gym that has two locations that work for me - one near my house and the other literally in my office building! This saves a lot of time with not having to travel too far!
6:30 PM: Start on dinner - chicken stir fry is one of our favorites and we can't forget the sriracha spicy mayo! This is literally my favorite time of day because Gary and I get to catch up on everything that went on! Sometimes it's easy to feel like two ships passing in the night - but making dinner together is a nightly ritual - schedule permitting!
8:00 It just so happens that the day I was recording all my stuff was the day before the wedding we helped coordinate at the Cape. So I was doing some last minute printing of the timelines, vendor contracts and all the other good stuff we needed! Also made sure to get the packing done so I wasn't scrambling in the morning!
9:00 ish: Finally settle in for the night with my tea and a little real housewives! 
I'm in bed by 10:30 and then repeat the next day! PHEW! 

You're probably wondering when I respond to emails and stuff - honestly this varies between morning, lunch and after work on my train ride home. 

My take away is that I spend a lot of time in front of computers - since four of my photos have them! So there you have it a quick take on my daily routine! 

And I always remember these two quotes...it's all about finding balance! 
My every day life isn't quite as glamorous as some out there, but I love routine and I'd love to know what you're daily routine is like!!

  2. So fun to get a sneak peek into your every day life. Now I know what you're doing when we're texting. The fun part is, we have our lunch break at the same time every day--now if only we worked closer together so we could grab a bite to eat together. In our matching shirts bahahah!

  4. I was just thinking if I should do a "day in the life of" post but my life is pretty boring! Just hearing that you ride a train is exciting to me, so funny how different states are since I've never even been on a train! Love hearing about your day and yes, I'm an early morning blogger too!

  9. So jealous you get to start your day an hour later than I do but you get home before me! Stupid long commute! And totally jealous you have a place to eat outside for lunch! I think I just need to come work with you :) And loved getting a glimpse into your day girlie! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  12. Loved this! And I love how much of a morning person you are, I'm on Team Gary as I try to get as much sleep as I can before I have to get up. Yay for eating lunch outside - I need to do that more often. There are so many great cozy spots outside my office to relax and have lunch :)

  38. Thats how it feels a lot for Mark and I, we really only get to see each other at night so I try to make an effort to be engaged and not glued to a screen for the few hours I get him at night. I always set my alarm for 6 but usually don't get out of bed that early lol

  41. I love posts like this, because let's face it as bloggers we are nosy. That's great that you have time on the train to read and comment on blogs, I feel like I need that. I want to do a post like this so I'll def try to be mindful on getting pictures :)!

  42. I love seeing the daily routine of people. I find it interesting!

    Awesome that your gym is either IN your office building or near home. And that you work so close to your sister.

  43. I have been trying for months to come up with a day in the life post. I always forget to take pictures by like lunch time. Duh Nadine!!! I love seeing everyone's routines. Maybe one day I will actually have my posts prescheduled where they can get out by 6am for ya! Ha, yeah don't hold your breath ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are so good having your posts pre-scheduled and ready to go out at 6am, I wish I was as on top of things as you are!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I always love these posts too... glimpses inside :)
    I love when people do them on a set date - like the 10th of the month - taking 10 pictures that reflect how your day went. I just cant ever remember until its the 11th :) haha

  46. i love day in the life posts! i spend a lot of time on computers too, lol. i am so jealous you have 2 gym locations and one is right in your office. that monthly printable blog thingy looks so cool!

  48. I too love day in the life posts. And I'm really jealous that you're up and awake at 6 am. I'm always prying my eyes open.

  50. Day in the life posts are always some of my favorite posts... I love to stalk people!

    Your daily routine sounds very similar to mine minus the wrangling of the two kids in the evenings! Hahahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love DIL posts. I think that sometimes people think our lives are glamorous, when they really aren't. I used to spend 10+ hours in front of the computer a day. Your day looks similar to what mine used to look like at work. :)

  52. I too LIVE on a computer!!!!!! Love that you are a morning person too :)

  53. I really need to check out the 7 min workout app!

  54. Can I just say how amazed I am that you actually take time to sit and relax before getting ready. I always say I'm going to do this, but I don't. I bet my morning would feel a little less chaotic if I didn't try blow drying my hair while feeding myself breakfast!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Busy sched indeed!! Thanks for sharing the printable!...

    My typical weekday is basically waking up in the 6am hour, getting washed up and lay out clothes for the day, then I wake up my daughter, sleect her clothes, we finalize getting dressed and doing hair, while she eats breakfast, I make lunches, I drop her off at school, then I get into work by 8 or 8:15ish... work tends to be very busy and the day goes by quickly, after work, I either go to the gym, run an errand, or get ready for date night with the BF... if I go to the gym, which is more regular, I workout then come home to shower and make dinner... my nights end with getting my daughter bathed and into bed, then I get my comfy on with PJs and I Pinterest, read, watch a show or a movie then light's out sometime around 11ish!

    There's my day :o)

  56. I always post for 12:00am in the morning, I'm usually not up at that time, so that I hopefully hit my peeps in the different time zones (the ones that are two hours a head of me, or even six hours).

    And I love your laptop, it kind of looks like a mac but then the keys look silver? I thought they were all black. I know totally random.

    Your day looks so jammed pack. Thank god for those short workouts right? I couldn't imagine trying to shove in a workout with that day.

  58. Sounds a lot like mine except that working out (getting to the gym, working out, getting home) takes me so much longer so I haven't been doing it lately :-/ Plus, I'm SO hungry at 5:30pm. So when do you work on writing your posts?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love these type of posts! It's a nice peak into people's "real" lives and not their blog lives. You are up and productive so early! Wish I had that motivation! Trish - tales from trish

  63. This was so fun reading and reminds me a lot of my everyday schedule except I don't get up as early as you...I'm with Gary on that one! LOL Printing the schedule now...I usually plan out each week the weekend before but monthly would be even better if I can think of stuff so far ahead. I think it will be great to get into the habit of it for sure. Thanks girlie!
