So this past week I’ve committed myself to a new way of life.
My actual new way of life is being a pre-work worker outer. I’ve been waking up between 5 and 5:05am and ambling off the the gym for an awesome sweat session before work, and I think I’ve gotten the routine down to a science.
5:00-5:05am – wake up
|1/4 c. oats, 2 1/2 tbsp oat bran w/1/4 c. greek yogurt, 1/2 c. milk, 1 1/2 tbsp flaxseed meal, 1/2 tbsp almond butter, mango & frozen berries, spices|
|1/8c quick steel cut oats, 2 1/2 tbsp oat bran, 2 tbsp peanut flour, 1/4 c greek yog, 1/2 coconut milk beverage, mango, blueberries, spices|
|1/4 c oats, 2 1/2 tbsp oat bran, 1/4 c greek yog, 1/2 c coconut milk beverage, 1 tbsp flaxseed meal, 1/2 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 diced apple, spices
7:30am – Leave parking lot for work
7:52-7:57am – Arrive at work. (I’m hourly, so I know the exact time range.)
Let me tell you- my day is sooo much better when I don’t have a workout looming over my head. Workouts feel awesome and fun again rather than an item on my to-do list when I’m exhausted after work.
In other news, since I’ve been working 8 hour days, I get to pack way less for lunch!
om nom nom
10:00am – 1/2 grapefruit
12:00pm – (moving counter-clockwise from the grapefruit) (1) roasted green beans, (2) turkey (leftover roasted) and swiss sandwich with yellow mustard on my favorite bread, & (3) cooked cabbage/broccoli/onion/mushroom w/turmeric, salt, pepper, & apple cider vinegar
3:00pm – 1 tbsp raw mixed nuts, 1 tbsp unsalted dry roasted peanuts, & 2 prunes
Of course the meal changes but the schedule stays about the same. And that’s my workweek for you. Topped off with a Friday-evening glass of wine:
