First Day Plan (with a side of cous cous)

Good Morning Sweets!

Well, raise your hand if you are having first day of work jitters...

Just me? That is okay.

I worked for the same corporation for the last nine years before transitioning to working from home. It would be safe to say that joining a new company, with a unique corporate culture and in a new (to me) business sector, can be a little daunting. One of the most important things to me, besides excelling in my new role, is maintaining my level of fitness and healthy eating habits. I have my routine all worked out for my first day.

Step 1:
I have prepared a healthy meal to take to the office:

Saute some red onion, garlic, and red pepper in a pan with olive oil.
Meanwhile, cook 1 box of cous-cous as directed.
After the onions are soft, add halved 'lil tomatoes to the pan and cook until "stewed-like"
After cous-cous is done transfer to big bowl and add onion/garlic/tomato mix
Add one package of feta to the bowl and stir

Step 2:
I have pre-packed my gym bag for a post work workout.

"Is this job going to interfere with nap time?"

One of the perks of the new job is that I get a major discount on a gym membership. I already have a 24 Hour Fitness (largest gym chain) membership and that gym is located less than a mile from my house. EASY. The gym discount offered by the new company is to Golds Gym (the second largest chain). I would not need access to Golds if I were leaving from my house, but there is a Golds Gym a mile from my office. Hmmmm, should I pay the nominal extra to workout at lunch or immediately after work? Maybe. I don't have to decide yet. The plan for tomorrow is to go STRAIGHT to 24 Hour Fitness after work and get my workout in before I even pull into my driveway.

By the time I get home, HM will be done with his Monday night boxing routine and we can grab some sushi.

Step 3:

Shirt: Ann Taylor
Belt: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Corso Como
Bracelet: vintage (thanks Grandma)
Earrings: Express
Purse: Kate Spade

I hope you sweets have a fantastic day, regardless of what is on your schedule!

Question sweets, do you workout before of after work? If any of you workout at lunch, what tips can you give me (and other readers) for transitioning back to the office?


  1. Love Love Love your outfit. GOOD LUCK TODAY!!!!

  2. How exciting! You look great and have fun...

  3. Love that skirt!

    I workout before work. It's a nice way for me to start my day and I always tend to make excuses if I leave it for after work.

    If you are a morning gal, I would say hit the gym up before work.

    Good Luck!
