My post on Friday got me thinking. The progression of a day is so interesting to me. Friday was so wonderful because it was completely unplanned but I did everything I wanted to. But normally, I love a routine. Here's mine:
Monday through Thursday I'm in the work world. Friday through Sunday I'm in my own little world.
I used to dislike Sundays, but I've grown to appreciate them. I try to relax and I get ready for the week ahead. I go to the market and I prep meals - breakfast and lunch. I don't have an actual kitchen so when I say I 'prep meals', I mean I decide what to eat for lunch the next four days, I wash and bag apples, I group things together for breakfast. Sunday is usually Family Day, but even if it's not, I always have dinner with my family on Sunday. It's never planned, it's just implied.
I love Monday. A fresh start, a clean slate. I like to wake up early. Lately I'm on a bizarre caffeine kick, so I'll either make some at home (hot) or stop for one on my way to the train (iced). I only drink coffee if it's hazelnut flavored (or has hazelnut creamer/syrup added). I usually stay in on Monday nights - especially if it's Bachelor/Bachelorette season! And now that Bethenny Ever After is back on, that's been a nice little treat as well. Though, I want to start getting back into yoga and Monday may be the night for that. I always have to pick out and pack my outfit for the next day because...
I spin at 6AM every Tuesday, which means waking up around 5:20. After class I shower and blow-dry my hair in the Soul locker room. I do my makeup on the train and pray I don't see anyone I know. Oh my God, I hope my mother isn't reading this. Applying makeup in a public place... I swear she raised me better than that. I usually meet a friend for dinner or drinks on Tuesday night, even though I should probably go home and relax. I'm like an energizer bunny. Sometimes it's easier for me to just keep going (and going).
Wednesdays are pretty much the same as Mondays, except that at night sometimes I spin and sometimes I go out (but never both!).
I've always loved Thursday, but now it's like my Friday so I love it even more. It's around this time that I'm usually due for Patron on the rocks, or at least a chilly glass of wine.
I want to have more Fridays like last one. They're like snowflakes... no two the same. Sometimes I run errands; sometimes I spend the day with my mom. I usually spin at some point on Friday... either at 8AM or around 5PM.
Saturdays are usually spent brunching and shopping, but not lately the latter with my hiatus. I also usually spin on Saturdays... the 5PM class is the perfect pre-game for my evening. Saturday nights in New York don't usually start until Sunday mornings. And I always wear heels.
What's your typical week like?
