Day in the Life | Stay at Home Working Mom

Most of you probably don't know, but I'm a stay at home working mom! While you might be thinking "you lucky dog." It's not all that it's cracked up to be. Yes, I love being able to spend time with my best gal pal and make my own schedule. However, there are times I crave going to an office. We do have a pretty awesome nanny situation two days a week. I'm here today to give you a small glimpse into my life and no I'm not sitting around eating bon bons and watching RHOBH.

5 a.m. | Alarm goes off. I usually hit snooze at least once

5:30 a.m. | I'm at the Gym for Abs and spin class -- still zombie like.

7 a.m. | By this time I'm home from the gym and on my first cup of coffee. Since I started working from home I can easily drink 3 cups of coffee. Yes! I really need to cut back. Along with coffee I'll have either two eggs and fresh fruit or a smoothie.

7:30 a.m. | If Emerson isn't up I usually wake her up. I know, I'm so mean. But we have places to be and people to see.

8 a.m. | This particular day Emerson is with the Nanny so I drop her off.

8:30 am. | First meeting of the Day

9:30 a.m. | run some errands, send emails, and start laundry.

10:30 a.m. | Run of to Press Conference location for set up and briefings.

11 a.m. | Media Press Conference

12:30 p.m. | More calls... while I'm on the phone I'm trying to figure out something for lunch. But we don't have any leftovers and I need something more than an apple with Sunflower Seed Butter.  I remembered I had a Healthy Choice Cafe Steamerswhich was perfect with my crazy day.

1 p.m. | Quick + Healthy Lunch

Why I love Healthy Choice Café Steamers [MSRP:$3.29]:

+ All Healthy Choice meals are made with real ingredients and no preservatives so you don’t have to worry about sacrificing taste or freshness. Since the ingredients aren’t frozen in the sauce they have a fresh, more vibrant taste.

+ Unlike other frozen meals, Healthy Choice Café Steamers’ feature a unique tray-in-tray steam cooking method that delivers fresh-tasting meals with crisp vegetables and juicy proteins. It also gives you the chance to be a part of the culinary experience as you pour your own sauce, determining how much or how little flavor you want with your meal. 

+ With each meal containing a mix of vitamins, nutrients and protein, Healthy Choice Café Steamers are a delicious, healthy, convenient option, whether at work, home or on the go.

+ Healthy Choice is the only major brand in the frozen meals section that can call 100% of its products “healthy” as approved by the FDA.

1:30 p.m. | Changed out my tires and worked while I wait. God they took forever.

3 p.m. | Finally home. Started more laundry, dishes, etc. All while responding to email and making calls! I'm that good an multi tasking.

4:30 p.m. | Go pick up Emerson

5 p.m. | Give Emerson some snacks while I start dinner and watch the 16.4 announcement

5:45 p.m. | Head to Crossfit to bust out 16.4 since I'm heading out of town the next day.

7 p.m. |  Home and beat tired. Time for dinner! More laundry and finally getting round to packing for the weekend. Emerson is already fast asleep.

9 p.m. | Glass of wine, Nashville and blogging all while finishing up the last load or laundry!

10 p.m. | Head on pillow out cold

Wow, now that was a day! Did you know how it didn't matter how busy I was I still managed to eat 'healthy' meals and workout, twice! Both are extremely important to me and I make them a priority everyday. I want to teach my little what it means to live a healthy life style and the best way is to lead by example.

Now imagine me doing all that when Emerson's home! It's not easy being a stay at home working mom.
