TGIF! This week was a pretty typical week for me.
Monday – Went to work. Took my lunch break at my dinky work gym to stretch my legs a bit. I think of it like recess at school – the highlight of my day. After work, I ate leftover bean salad. Watched TV – the old BBC Pride and Prejudice. LOOOVE Jane Austen. Popcorn.
Tuesday – Same as Monday, only after work, I went to a gym class to get a proper bit of workout. I like this particular Tuesday instructor who focuses on abs. Again, once I’m home, I try to get to food as fast as possible, but not before I shower, because I’m gross. Watch TV with a side of iPad.
Wednesday – Same as Monday. I watched Me Before You. Good, but sad. The stars are beautiful and likable.
Thursday – Same as Tuesday, just a different class. I watched Mozart in the Jungle.
Friday – Same as Monday only I got to work a bit earlier so I can leave earlier too. It’s grocery shopping at Mom’s after dinner. And finally, TV with a side of wine. Ahhhh….
Saturday – I generally wake up to toast with peanut butter and banana with tea or coffee. It’s my favorite breakfast of late. I water all the houseplants with shrimp tank water and then refill the tank with aged water. That’s just about the only maintenance I do for that tank. I watch more TV until I finally drag my butt to the gym. It’s hard to leave the house to go to the gym, but the instructor is a funny old guy who runs a very non-stop ridiculously spastic session that I find amusing. “How high/fast can you go?! Can you go higher/faster?! Can you go even HIGHER/FASTER!?” “Rest when you’re tired. Drink when you’re thirsty. Eat your vegetables every day!” “My mom wakes up and does 100 of these in the morning!” There’s no stopping for a full hour. After this crazy workout, I like to go out to eat and then do more grocery shopping.
Sunday – Do mostly nothing day! Watch gobs and gobs of TV. Also this is cooking day. I prepare lunches for the week and try to make enough for dinner for the week too. I prefer to do minimal cooking during the week so for the most part, Sunday is food prep day. This way, I get less wasted produce too. Cooking just about everything reduces food waste. That’s one annoying thing about buying produce though – it commits me to cook. Once purchased I have to cook it that weekend or prep it for freezing. Once in a blue moon, I might pick up the vacuum cleaner or scrub brush to clean the house. But not if there’s something even remotely decent on Netflix or YouTube.
