Happy Thursday. Today I thought I’d share what a day in my life looks like after more than a year living in Germany. I love reading these on other blogs and think it’s so fascinating to see what happens behind closed doors during the day. It’s like reading an episode of the Real Housewives. What’s not to love?
So here’s my day on April 12, 2017, a day where I didn’t have to work at either jobs. It was relaxing, fun, delicious and lovely. I wish every day could be like this.
6:20 AM: Alarm goes off, check my phone. (I know, so bad!)
6:40 AM: Head to the gym.
7:00 AM – 7:45 AM: Work out. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill, with a 7 minute warm-up, 14 minute HIIT (1 minute rest, 2 minute push pace), 10 minute incline walk. Then I did an arm work out from my beloved Tone It Up.
7:45 AM: Walk home.
8:00 AM: Take the little princess for a walk. Copley teaching everyone to stop and smell the flowers.
8:30 AM:Make breakfast, 3 eggs scrambled, 4 pieces of bacon, raspberries and a homemade vanilla latte. I don’t know how I lived without my Nespresso!
8:41 AM: Eat breakfast while watching some of my favorite YouTube channels.
9:14 AM: Take a shower.
9:50 AM: Start working on some blog posts with my favorite assistant. I can’t be the only one who gets back into pajamas when you have no where to be, right?
10:36 AM: Make my Easter in Germany post live.
10:40 AM: Throw in a load of laundry, clean the dishes from breakfast, make another vanilla latte and start writing some more blog posts. Hey, at least they are made with soy milk & at home!
11:30 AM: Do some scholarship application evaluations for my sorority. I volunteered to review these applications and it is really fun to see how incredible all these young people are.
12:00 PM: Accidentally take a nap while watching an episode of Real Housewives of New York.
1:00 PM: Change the laundry from the washer to the dryer and then add another load. It takes 2 hours to do one load of laundry, so I have to really plan out when I do it. Take Copley for another walk and let me hair air dry.
1:28 PM: Eat a little bit of lunch, which is just some salami, trail mix and some Pringles. So healthy.
1:50 PM: Watch last night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion.
2:46 PM: Go get the laundry again, watch some YouTube and read for a little bit. I’m currently reading Dark Money: How a secretive group of billionaires is trying to buy political control in the US. No matter your political affiliation, this book is fascinating and scary. It’s real life House of Cards.
5:03 PM: Get ready to go out to dinner with a group of other expats. I’m leaving early so I can FaceTime with one of my best friends in the States.
5:30 PM: Walk to bus stop.
5:48 PM: Return library books.
6:04 PM: Chat with one of my best friends thanks to the library’s wifi and get caught up on life.
6:35 PM: Meet up with everyone for dinner!
8:35 PM: After a great dinner, I had chicken caprese and two glasses of wine, we all head to grab some gelato for dessert. Who can say no to that?
9:50 PM: Devour the hazelnut and chocolate gelato and come home.
10:15 PM: Snuggle with Copley and pass out.
I fell asleep feeling so full and that life is good.
