It’s WIAW and I thought it might be fun to do a “day in the life post” so I hope you guys enjoy!
Wednesdays and Thursdays are clinical days so I’m at the hospital from 7am to 3 or so- no 12 hour shifts quite yet! I’m in my pediatric rotation at the Children’s Hospital of New York which is right by school and about 1.5 miles from my apartment so I just walk there in about 25 minutes and I can sleep in a bit longer! During my psych rotation I was at Cornell which was only 5 miles from my apartment, but about an hour commute since it was on the east side and I live on the west side. All that to say, a 25 minute walk in the morning for my commute has been amazing!
6am – make breakfast which this morning was reheated pumpkin pancakes from the weekend with bananas and almond butter with maple syrup. (This photo is recycled from the weekend because this morning I took breakfast with me in a tupperware.)
6:50ish- get to hospital and chat with my clinical group while most of us finish eating breakfast and wait for our instructor.
Sorry to bore y’all with this same kale salad but it’s THAT good. Kale massaged with 1 tsp olive oil + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar + sea salt and then topped with nutritional yeast, chopped green beans, red bell pepper, roasted butternut squash , and avocado. Plus edamame, a pear and a cinnamon raisin energy ball. Lunches are something I keep repeating because they taste good and its a no brainer so it make life easy!
5:15- shower and then more snacks! dried pineapple + 2 squares of these chocolate peanut butter oat squares I made yesterday (recipe soon!)
7:15-8pm: reheat leftovers for dinner while catching up with my roommates. (I have amazing + witty + super fun roommates that I am so, so grateful for. They have made the move to NYC so. much. easier.) Brown rice noodles with broccoli and sauteed mushrooms and zucchini all tossed with this quick vegan “cheese” sauce– eaten with a plate of roasted brussel sprouts
8-8:30pm: pack lunchbox and pack up backpack for the next day. Lay out scrubs + other clinical stuff so I’m ready to go for another day of clinicals
8:30-9:15-9:30ish- eat a night time snack of a WF chocolate chewy and a glass of almond milk + some popcorn while answering emails and blog comments as fast as possible in an hour. I give myself certain time limits on email because the inbox can be a black hole.
9:45- in bed and reading but I typically fall asleep within 20 minutes
Unless I have a dinner planned with friends, I’d say that’s a pretty typical Wednesday.
Hope you guys have an awesome day!
