Back To My Regular Schedule

Hi everyone! We made it to Friday woo! I hope you have a fantastic day 🙂


Since I stayed up so late Wednesday night, I was not happy when my alarm woke me up. I got up (eventually) and got ready for work. For breakfast, I scrambled an egg and add a slice of pumpkin bread.


Want to know the best part of working in an office that is connected to a 1 million square foot warehouse? When I need a break I can take a giant lap around the warehouse. I was looking at a lot of Excel data today so taking a quick walk around the building really helped my decompress. I barely remember the beginning of “The Little Paris Bookshop” by Nina George so I restarted it at lunch. Per my typical work lunch, I had a peanut butter sandwich, pretzels, carrots and hummus.


After work, I quickly changed before heading out on my run. Aside from someone calling me a “witch” but with a “B” as they drove by, it was a good run! My workout was 6 x 3 minutes hard with 1 minute recovery jog in between. It was tough by the end! 3 minutes doesn’t sound like a long time but by the last one it felt incredibly long.


For whatever reason I was really hungry after my shower so I snacked on some carrots and hummus. While I ate those, I prepped lunches and Alex’s for work the next day. I’ll let you all in on a little secret. Alex got a package delivered yesterday but I was also expecting one so I was about to cut it open when I noticed his name. Whoops! I’m so glad that I noticed the name before I opened his.


Once that was all taken care of, I caught up on some emails while I heated up my leftover ravioli. I added just a sprinkle of fresh parmesan cheese on once I took it out of the oven. It was almost has good as when it was fresh at the restaurant. When leftovers are equally as good, then that’s a sign of a good restaurant to me. And yes I did eat put the hot aluminum pan on a dinner plate so that I didn’t have to wash the dish.


After dinner, I turned on “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”. I watched the original series over the summer but hadn’t had a chance to get out Netflix’s reboot. While that was on I did this clay face mask. I have fallen out of the habit of doing at least one face mask every week so I’m trying to get back into it.


When I washed the mask off, I looked into potential chocolate desserts to bring for Thanksgiving. If you have any recommendations please let me know! Looking at lots of desserts made me want sugar so I decided to read more instead. I started to get hungry again so I popped a bowl of popcorn. I must not have drank enough water yesterday because the hunger after work was real.

I was glad that there were no surprise outings yesterday. I’m a big fan of routines so after a few days of eating out and what not, I was excited for a normal night at home in my pjs on the couch!

Question of the day: Are you a big routine person?

  1. Are you kidding me?! Who would call you that?!?! Seriously. Looks like you had a great run though.
    My husband and I are pretty big on routines, but his whole morning is ruined if he gets thrown off his routine, it’s pretty comical!
    Enjoy your weekend 🙂


    1. Swear to god it happened! I was shocked because it was right by our apartment and it’s not like I ran out in front of them are anything. People are terrible sometimes.
      I could see how watching your husband’s routine get thrown off could be comical! Hopefully you’re laughing with and not at him 🙂
      Thanks Erinn! Have a great weekend!


  2. I always try to make my grocery list at night and find that it just makes me starving, lol. I suggest a chocolate pie for dessert. Have a great weekend!


    1. I have no idea. It’s crazy the things people will say as you run by. Over the summer I got cat called since it was approximately 100 degrees so I was just in a sports bra and shorts. Ridiculous right?!
      I finished the first episode and can’t wait to see the others!


  3. I bought that clay face mask months ago and keep forgetting to try it! Hopefully this weekend. I’ve gotten a little more flexible over the years but I am a huge routine person too.


    1. I really like the mask! I use 2 tablespoons of the mix with 1 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar which my skin really enjoys! Give it a try this weekend and let me know what you think of it 🙂


    1. It bothered me but I just let it roll off. I just wanted to share so that if anyone else had experienced a jerk they would know it wasn’t just them that deals with it. That’s exactly how I feel about morning routines too! I try to get my most pressing work items done in the morning when I’m most focused. Have a great day Emily 🙂


  4. How did you like the new Gilmore Girls? I loved it, but I’m not sure if it’s because it was good or because I just have so much nostalgia surrounding that show!

    I’m definitely a routine person. I’ve noticed that the more I set a routine and stick to it, the easier it is for me to be spontaneous. Does that make sense? Essentially, if I stick to a routine, I’ll actually have time to go do something spontaneous instead of worrying about when my laundry or my dishes will get done!


    1. Well I’m only one episode into the new GG and I like it. I don’t know if I’ll like it as much as the original only because the chemistry, while still excellent, isn’t 100% the same as the original. Hopefully that makes sense!

      That makes total sense! I think I’m the same way. Yes I love my routine but I can’t always be spontaneous.


  5. I can’t believe you got called that! How horrible! For a chocolate dessert I would suggest the chocolate torte with hazelnut crust from Oh She Glows – not super sweet but yummy. I always make it with almond crust though as hazelnuts are crazy expensive here.


      1. I love finding out that I’m not alone in a situation. I am positive you can manage it if I can – you make much fancier things than I do!


    1. I really like the clay mask! I mix 2 tablespoons of the mix with a tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and water (based on reviews) and it works well for my skin. It can be a bit of a pain to wash off but I think it makes a difference so I don’t mind do much. Unfortunately I wasn’t a huge fan of the book! It started good and the ending was a little meh for my opinion. Maybe you would like it better though!
