Daily Happenings

When Alex Is Away, Maureen Will Play

Happy Thursday! How is your week going? I hope it’s a good one! Just think, one more day until Friday and the weekend. Have a great day πŸ™‚


I woke up feeling so good Wednesday morning. It was like someone gave me a shot of happy right before I woke up which was great. After getting ready to work I cooked breakfast. Obviously it was scrambled eggs and toast.


Work went by pretty quick which was nice. At 3 pm every day I always have a Greek yogurt. Does anyone else have a snack at some point during the day? For whatever reason, 3 pm is when my stomach starts to grumble and it works for me since I get a little food in for a pre workout snack. My personal favorite brand is Oiko Triple Zero Greek Yogurt. It fueled me on my 30 minute turned hour long conference call at the end of the day.


When I got home, I immediately changed into sweats. For whatever reason, I got home and was freezing! It probably didn’t help that I took the garbage out without a coat but still. Normally I don’t put on baggy sweats and a sweatshirt but Alex was gone at a work event and it was just me…so baggy sweats and sweatshirt sounded amazing! It warmed me up plus it got me nice and comfy for my night in.


Like my usual “I’m alone for dinner” meal, I made a roasted potato. While it was roasting in the oven, I finally sat down to read the winter edition of the Magnolia Journal. I cuddled up on the couch to enjoy my bowl of potatoes while watching Friends.


After dinner, I read a bit and did some stuff around the apartment. I was craving something sweet and decided to make a mini milkshake. I blended together a frozen banana, chocolate ice cream, milk and scoop of peanut butter. Adding the banana and peanut butter made it semi healthy right? I sipped on my dessert while watching So UndercoverΒ on Netflix. Yes I’m aware it’s not a great movie but I like something on in the background okay?

Question of the day: I’m just going to say right now that this will be a little long. So at work yesterday, I got really inspired and I starting thinking about the future and goals. One thing I was looking at/thinking about was my blog. I really enjoy blogging you guys, so much more than I ever thought I would. But what I want to know is what do you want to see? Fitness, running, recipes, treats, continue what I’m doing with just writing about my days. Tell me! I want to know what type of posts you guys want to see! I have a big old list I made but that won’t mean much if no one else is interested in those topics. So please tell me what you would like to see on Maureen Gets Real, I would love to hear it πŸ™‚

  1. I love switching into comfortable clothes before bedtime each night, just helps wind the day down. I too have asked this question on my blog and got little to no response. I think you have to make your blog what you want it to be for you. Good luck finding the direction that feels right to you


  2. I was thinking about how I’m loving blogging and how surprised I am by that!
    I enjoy the variety you have now- I get to hear about your day but you also include recipes and your running and reviews of books and restaurants:) I’m probably biased because that’s also what I do, but hearing about your day gives me good ideas, inspires me to be active and makes me feel like I’m normal:)🀣


      1. I never knew anything about blogging, just wanted to keep track of my day, but interacting with others is a highlight of my day!


  3. I was home alone on Wednesday, too, but I always change into sweats immediately. I love your current platform for blogging & following along. I love your book reviews and running recaps. I’d love to hear more about how you decide what books to read! Jessica, http://www.roomforgelato.com


  4. I love your daily blogs as it is! I mean, it would be fun to see book reviews or maybe a vlog here or there, but otherwise, I can’t think of anything. Your blog is great! It’s actually got me thinking about daily blogging myself, but I don’t think I have the time to commit to it. But, that’s how much I like yours!
