Wowzers, I’m a workaholic! Going from working one day a week to working six is a change, that’s for sure. I don’t mind it too much though. It makes me utilize my free time a little better… or just makes me tired and cranky and want to sleep haha.
I have several days of missed food going on but a lot of my eating is now done either on the fly or not at home so I haven’t been great with picture taking.
My new daily schedule
6:55 – Alarm Off
7:05 – Out of Bed
7:05 – 7:25ish – Hop on the net, get dressed, put face on etc
7:25ish – 7:40ish – Breakfast + Coffee Chugging
7:40 – 7:50 – Get my stuff together
7:50 – 8:00 – Drive and Arrive
My breakfasts thus far have been things that I can eat quickly – AKA cereal or overnight oats if I think to prep ahead of time (like last night). A couple mornings I haven’t been hungry enough so I’ve just brought along some fruit, bars etc to munch on throughout the morning at work.
Cereal Mess – Flax Plus Pumpkin Raisin Crunch, Shreddies, Fibre One, frozen banana, blueberries, Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze
Overnight Cold Oats – Oats soaked overnight in Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze, ground flax, cinnamon, pineapple chunks. In the morning: stirred in banana and topped with plain yogurt, PBU and rhubarb jam.
My work day usually goes from 8 – 4:30 with a half hour lunch break. It’s 35 hours a week so we choose to work later Monday-Thursday and have a nice short day on Friday. I can’t wait until Friday :)
We eat lunch at noon. I have not yet taken any pictures of my lunch because I don’t really wish to do so at work and I always forget to do so while I am prepping.
My lunches have been really simple and repetitive so far though so they’re not that photoworthy anyway. You’re not missing much!
Typically I’ll bring: a salad with whatever mix-ins/leftovers we have in the fridge (which sure hasn’t been much lately), an apple and some kind of bar. I’ll probably start switching things up a bit soon enough though because I’m definitely going to get bored of that same lunch every single day, six days a week. Plus, I need something to look forward to at lunch time to spice up my day a bit! The work is already repetitive enough as is.
Come 4:30ish I take off for the homeland. In other words my house. Although today we left at 2:30 and brought some work home with us instead. That was a nice treat.
I’m pretty starving by this point so usually I’ll go right to the fridge and dig for a small snack while coming up with something to make for dinner. Then I just make dinner. So far it’s been quick things since I want to eat right when I get home.
Egg white mess, potato chunks, hummus and mashed cauliflower with dijon mustard.
Wrap (A Hot Inspiration): veggie burger, hummus, feta cheese, spinach, dijonnaise
I’ve also been snacking on plenty of:
Yogurt with PBU, berries, rhubarb jam…
Rice crackers + Cheeeese
And I’m also bored! Do you ever feel like you need to do something else social, out of the house, into civilization after you get off work? I feel strangely isolated after coming home from work and it makes me want to go do things every night. But at the same time I’m pretty tired and have been a little cranky since I’m a little behind on sleep so I don’t really have the energy to do things and be out anyway. Such the dilemma… hah.
Sorry for the lack of updates… yet again. I’m still getting into this new routine thing since this is my first full week on the job and I just haven’t been at the computer too much. I’m also really behind on blog reading (and commenting… eek!) but I hope to catch up soon and I hope you’re all doing well!
