I get asked a lot what I've found to do to occupy my days, so I thought I'd give you a peak at the fun!
7:00AM - Wake-up sans alarm clock. Enjoy a latte and breakfast in bed while watching the Today show. Catch up on emails and the latest Facebook and twitter happenings.
10:00AM - The dog and I hit the road and arrive at the Chattahoochee River for a run. Today's plan is speed-work - 5 x 1 mile repeats at 10K pace with 3 minute recovery. Speed-work HURTS!! 8.5 miles and 20 minutes of stretching later we're back in the car.
12:30PM - Time to fuel the machine. I take advantage of being near Whole Foods and drop in for some delicious eats. I peruse the aisles, enjoying all of the samples, and then hit the salad bar. I swear I could eat from their salad bar everyday and be a happy person! Lunch is enjoyed while soaking up the sun - so glad Atlanta's winter-in-May has left!
|Spinach base, broccoli, kale, chicken salad, tuna salad, grilled vegetables, chile lime quinoa salad, pesto pasta, roasted vegetable barley salad, baked beans, cherry balsamic tofu, sesame soy tofu, and honey roasted sweat potatoes.|
3:00PM - Spend an hour washing my car, vacuuming the carpets, and cleaning the windows. Refueled with a Mix1 and frozen berry smoothie. Yum!
4:00PM - Finish planning a fundraising dinner for Saturday - ordering food, organizing a silent auction, and gathering raffle items.
5:00PM - Prep dinner. Tonight's menu features Mahi Mahi over Bok Choy with a Soy Ginger Glaze and a Brown Basmati Rice Salad.
|Brown Basmati Rice Salad with Kale, Red Peppers, and Cumin Vinaigrette|
|Bok Choy and Onions|
|Soy Ginger sauce is reducing|
7:30PM - Typing this post.
8:00PM - Time to enjoy a bowl of Ben and Jerry's!
And so there you have it - a sneak peak at the glamorous long-term vacation I am enjoying as a recently graduated "DOCTOR". Fortunately I have a real vacation to Cancun planned in just a couple weeks! Can't wait!!
