A day in my life? As I said back in #BEDM, I hope you’re not expecting too much! There haven’t been too many changes since this post.
My life is still very boring I am sorry to say. On a working day my alarm goes off at 7am. I allow myself a snooze or two and then wake up enough to test my blood sugars and take my medication. As a diabetic I have to check my sugars throughout the day to ensure they are doing okay. I’m lucky as I have it pretty much under control but my morning/fasting bloods are the ones I have the least control over and tend to be the highest of the day. I then have a check of my emails/twitter etc while still snuggling in bed. I am not a morning person so I need to allow myself plenty of time to wake up before I go face the general public! After this it’s up, gather together my clothes, quick shower, cleanse and moisturise, get dressed and head downstairs. At this point I let my dogs out into the garden, have a small breakfast, open my post if it has arrived and I finally manage to drag myself out the door.
I moved office in September so my commute is now twice what it was. When I finally make it into the office it’s time to check any messages/emails left from the day before and basically just get stuck in. I used to be really bad for not taking breaks but now they are essential so it’s a short break at 11ish where I grab another small breakfast or snack and I get an half an hour for lunch at about 1pm. I try bring my lunch in otherwise it’s a run to the local shop or the occasional lunch out. I also try to drink 2 litres of water while I am at work. I’m not really a tea/coffee drinker so everyone laughs when I go for ‘tea’ and sit there with my water instead! The water fountain is *just* outside the door of my new office which is very handy.
My working day varies in length depending on what I have to do so sometimes I can be quite late home. I’m supposed to work 9-5 but it’s not always possible. I have gotten much better at it though. Today was a long one as I was on training. That meant that I left my house at 7:45 and wasn’t back til almost 7pm.
After work I tend to head home and it’s a boring routine of cook/reheat dinner, play with the dogs, check my bloods, have dinner, take my medication, do housework, walk the dogs, watch tv, do some additional exercise if I have the energy, chat to friends/family online or by phone… And of course, some internet time – twitter, facebook, Boards, reading blogs and blogging!
My bedtime routine varies. Sometimes I will do a facial to wind down, or a bath with some of my Lush products. I generally listen to some music or watch some videos on YouTube to help me wind down. I sometimes have issues sleeping so I’ll often use some meditation apps to help me get to sleep. I love having fresh sheets and pyjamas so those are the nights I love the most.
