Day In The Life: Day Off

by Ellie McHale

It’s Monday and I’m lucky to have the day off. That is a pro (or con?) of working retail. Yesterday, I visited a friend in Morro Bay and good chunk of my day was driving.

Today, I’m taking it easy, especially as this time next week I will be back at school with a full load of classes.

I woke up at 9.45am and grabbed a cup of coffee while I decided what to eat for breakfast.

I decided on a couple pears and some cheese. Good carbs, calcium, and protein!

I sorted through the Sunday papers and picked out the sections I like. I’ve got some good reading to do. My two notebooks I use for new words I come across & ideas I get for creative writing and blog posts.

Afternoon tea and cookie. So good!

I love these glass jars I got from Urban Outfitters a few days ago. They were $1.99 each! I scoured Pinterest for crafty ideas that I could do with them. I think I’ll leave them as is, though.

I love my running shoes. When I went to purchase them, they salesman asked me as he was bringing them out “do you mind if they are a bright color?” Of course I don’t! Had he not brought out bright ones, I would have asked to see the bright ones.

Stopped at the library to return two books and pick up the third Harry Potter book. I ended up getting a couple others, obviously. We’ll see if I get around to reading them.

I decided to treat myself to a movie, Afternoon Delight. Interesting and awkward, I loved it.

About to get my 9.30pm workout on. I’ve got my iPod mini loaded with some great playlists & podcasts to make my run and strength training more enjoyable. I definitely need to be distracted to get through a hefty workout.

Post 5k run smoothie. Yum!!

image

Some green beans with olive oil & champagne vinegar. I love veggies!

image

Pomegranate Green Tea for a dose of antioxidants. I love having my nightly cup of tea in my big EWU mug.

I’m so tired that I don’t feel like doing a major skincare routine. A quick cleanse & pump of moisture followed by clean teeth, and I’m set.

Goodnight!!
