7:40 am: My second alarm goes off. I probably turned off the first one and went back to bed.
7:50 am: I finally get out of bed to brush my teeth, change, and prepare all the stuff I need for the day.
8:10 am: I begin making my usual ketogenic friendly lunch: spinach, cucumber, mushrooms, carrots, two chicken thighs with skin, lots of cheese, and maybe pumpkin seeds if I’m feeling bougie.
8:30 am: I’m out the door walking to the nearest QLine stop. Even though I should be biking to work since I work for MoGo, I’m probably not in the mood to do any physical activity.
8:45 am: Though the QLine is probably the most unreliable form of transportation that’s ever existed, I’m usually on the QLine by this time. I listen to music while I watch the familiar shops on Woodward pass by.
9:00 am: I arrive at work, grab myself a cup of coffee, and proceed to my desk. Sam bikes to work but we usually get to the office around the same time. We greet each other and briefly talk about our mornings and what we did the night before.
9:10 am: I start my day replying to emails, whether it’s a member of the Detroit Experience Factory Team or a local senior center wanting more information about Adaptive MoGo. Depending on the day, I spend the rest of this morning working on the research and development of current projects, telemarketing to nursing homes and disability organizations to advertise Adaptive MoGo, editing our casual intercept and member feedback surveys, or in a meeting with a member of the MoGo team.
1:30 pm (estimate): I’ve been practicing Intermittent Fasting for two months so I’m eating my first meal sometime between 12pm and 3pm depending on when I’m hungry. I take this time to sit at the kitchen and watch the World Cup.
2:00 pm: I rarely have meetings in the afternoons so I continue to work on our current projects. Sam and I transition from our desks to a cozy little corner in the office with comfortable chairs.
5:00 pm: Sam and I say goodbye to the rest of the team for the day and head back to University Towers. I take this time on the QLine to call and catch up with friends from home or Duke.
6:00 pm: I eat a light snack and then head to the gym with whoever else is going at that time. I spend about an hour doing strength training.
7:30 pm: I prepare my second keto friendly meal of the day: chicken thighs / drumsticks, eggs, bacon, and creamed spinach. Everyone makes fun of me for basically eating the same thing every day, but you gotta do what you gotta do to be on track with the stipend. I eat more cheese and peanut butter as a dessert and finish with a glass of almond milk.
8:00 pm: I take a shower while bumping my favorite tunes. I’m probably playing Childish Gambino or Daniel Caesar.
9:00 pm: After a long day, I’m ready to just relax. Depending on my mood, I either stay in my room and enjoy quality YouTube entertainment or I head to the hangout spot, Room 204, to watch the others get passionate over Mafia games.
10:30 pm: I brush my teeth and hop into bed. I browse Instagram, send my daily Snaps, and listen to a Spanish podcast to prepare for my Spanish course this upcoming semester.
11:30 pm: I set my alarm, turn everything off, and slowly fall asleep.
