A little while ago I did a Day in the Life Post. Looking back on that post now it is crazy how different things are. I thought since my life has changed a little bit over the last few months I would try it again! I know this is going to be thrilling beyond words, so get ready!

I tried to remember to take as many pictures throughout the day as I could. There will be some gaps!


4:50 am – My alarm goes off. It’s early, really early! I drag myself out of bed and immediately put my running clothes on before I can think about what I am doing. I take Zoe out to potty, feed the cats and head immediately downstairs to start my run.

5:10 am 
– Start my workout. The workout I had scheduled for today was 3 x 1600 meters with 600 recovery. Each of the 1600’s were supposed to be run in 7:00 minutes.



6:15 am – Immediately get off the treadmill and head upstairs to start getting ready for work. I have exactly one hour before I need to be in the car and on my way.


6:30 am – After showering, I make a quick breakfast to eat while I am straightening my hair. If I had naturally straight hair I am pretty sure that my morning routine would go much quicker!



6:50 am – Finish getting dressed while also monitoring these two who were getting a little too rowdy. Seriously, Piper is probably the most energetic kitty I have ever met!

7:10 am – Fix my coffee right as I am heading out the door. There is no way that I could make it through the first 4-5 hours of the day without my coffee!



7:25 am – Arrive at work and get ready to head in. Going in at 7:30 am isn’t that big of a change from the 8-8:15 am I was used to but it sure does make a difference in what time I have to get up to start running. Snap a quick picture before I forget.

Work Time


12:00 pm – Get my lunch break and head downstairs to grab lunch. One of the great things about my new job is the fact that lunch is provided every day. Today was Panera so I had their apple salad along pickles and bread. Yum! I didn’t take a picture because I was eating with a bunch of co-workers.


12:20 pm – Finish up lunch and head out to sit in my car a little while to make a few phone calls.


In case you wondering, this was the view from my car!


1:00 pm – Head back into work to finish out the rest of the day.


4:45 pm – Got off work and headed back home. For some reason I was extremely tired at the end of Tuesday. I hope this doesn’t continue – there is too much of the week left!


5:45 pm – Sit down to eat dinner with the hubs. I forgot to take a picture since we were busy talking, but we ended up having pasta with tomatoes and chicken. We also had fruit and veggies on the side!


6:15 pm – Head out to Target to pick up a few things Wes needed for his new rotation starting Monday.


I can get into some serious trouble in Target!


7:15 pm – Get home and take Zoe out to get some time to play. Poor thing isn’t used to having both of us gone so much and has some serious energy to get out!

8:00 pm – Sit down and get some work done, write this blog post and get some household items done.
10:00 pm – Do the final tasks of the night: clean the litter box, fold clothes and take Zoe out to potty and put her to bed.
10:30 pm – Bed! Get ready to do it all over again tomorrow!


I know my life is super thrilling! I have made it a point to make myself shut my computer and be in bed by 10:30 pm. 6 hours of sleep is the minimum that I can get a night and still be able to function for running and work the next day.

I’m finally starting to feel like I am getting into my new routine. Some days are easier than others, but I’m getting there!


Do you have the same schedule every day?

What time do you go to bed at night?
