Busy Week Ahead

Sorry for the late post. It's the start of the academic year here, so orientation is in full swing. I should be able to squeeze in a post or two during the day, but they'll probably be short and sweet. Hope you guys understand! :)

I had a the WORST night of sleep last night (I think it was that chai spiced latte I drank yesterday afternoon)! I tossed and turned until almost 2:30 am before drifting off. Needless to say, there was no 5:00 am wake-up for the gym this morning! Breakfast at home was nice though-- I missed my quiet, laid-back bowl of oats while catching up on my blog reading.


This morning's bowl of oats included banana and fig slices with vanilla soy milk and a scoop of Barney Butter.


Iced coffee with soy milk... I practically chugged this on my commute this morning!


Lunch was a homemade salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, snap peas, scallions, and freshly ground pepper.


I also ate a ham and swiss cheese sandwich on a Thomas English Muffin and a Ginger Snap-flavored Larabar. Mmmmm... ginger snap!


Question of the Day

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Sorry such a brief post! I'll try to make it up to you all this evening! :) Happy MONDAY!

Hey Tina! Hope work isn't too stressful today! I enjoy the time flexibility at my job! They don't care what 8 hours you work, as long as you can find adequate times to meet with your project team. I like to get in early and out early so this is perfect for me!

i'm a stay at home mom. i love to bake with my kids. i think that's my favorite thing to do with them....they learn so much from it.

Best of luck with all the busyness ahead of you, Tina!!

Haha, well my "jobs" are being a full-time dancer and student :0) So I'd say that the best part about being a dancer is how I feel when I move/stay active; and the best part about being a student? The fact that my classes are done by 4:30 pm, and I only have 2 or 3 classes each day :0)

Hi Tina! The thing I enjoy most about work isn't really work related....it's the on-site gym! I do like that I work a 35 hour week, too!

Caroline said...

I have to agree with Erica. the flexibility of my hours. I am an early bird. I will get up at 4 go to the gym...breakfast and lunch is prepared the night before...I get into the office at 6:30 and have almost a good hour alone...I enjoy my oats with almond butter and flax at my desk. I leave at 3:30 and have already done my work out. I love it...Also, I have to tell you I have been making iced coffees because of your blog. THank you...I love them. I just thought Starbucks was the only place to get my fix for iced ones! Great blog.

I love the flexibility and I also love that I get to attend fun events, such as concerts like Coldplay or golfing outings. Keeps it interesting!

Sorry you didn't sleep well, I hope you can catch up on your rest tonight.


I really love the people at my job, everyone is friendly, easy going and fun to work with. I also like the job itself because I do a varitey of tasks which keeps things interesting.

I am a stay at home Mom who also watches my best friend's little girl. I enjoy being home for my kids during the summer and after school and watching them grow. They are only little once. :)

Hmm, the flexibility is definately a plus... at least for now. But I think what I love most is that I am always learning!

I too am a lover of oatmeal for breakfast. It's either oatmeal with peanut butter and bananas or banana pancakes. It's always nice to be able to relax and enjoy breakfast. It is the most important meal after all.

Job? What's that? I'm in grad school, we usually become lifelong professional students.

I am with nick on that one... But i am a grad student and also work so I enjoy being around people and learning in the field what you cant learn at school

Peggy said...

Love the QOTD! I like my job (what I do) most of the time :) My favorites things aren't exactly work related - I love that we have a gym at work and I really like the people I work with.

just me said...

oatmeal looks great like always...!

and the best thing about my job is probably my coworkers...they're hilarious all the time! and i love that i don't always have to sit behind the computer all day and get to go out in the field...:)

Amy said...

Oh my job...there are too many things to love about it--I'm an elementary school teacher and so every day is an adventure...so I think that's probably my favorite thing about it--thanks for keeping up the blog during your busy busy time of year!

I love my co-workers the most, I think. We get along so well and that makes work so much fun.
Also, I work for a global organization, so there's great opportunities world wide - I'd love to live and work in another country for awhile.
