I hope you’ve had a great weekend.
The playoffs have been absolutely crazy this year and it’s been so exciting to experience and watch. As we’re nearing the end of Football season, I can’t help but reflect on how my bonkers routines change for when I work home games vs. the (many) games I travel for.
During away games I can easily get away and focus, keeping work and home separate. I actually really rely on my plane and car rides to focus and mentally prepare for each game. It’s an escape, but also a designated time to concentrate on the day ahead.
Home games are a little different because you don’t necessarily have that immediate separation. I’m usually pretty good about just staying at home, but sometimes I’m a little bit of a brat and go for a hotel room nearby to focus. Now I’m usually pretty good and don’t do this because Jarret’s good about giving me space and will take Howie out on his own, but I won’t lie, there’s nothing like room service in the morning!
It’s really important that I eat a lot before a game as well since we usually don’t get a chance to break and eat until hours after we enter the stadium. So, my perfect morning is just having room service delivered while I slowly get ready and start prepping for the game. My room service order is gross guys, but I just love to eat. Everyone talks about that UberEats commercial “you’d never order that”—yeah, I would! I can just hammer a meal, haha. Anyways, here’s my most-recent order: scrambled eggs, bacon, berries, bread, avocado, green juice, coffee with coconut or almond milk, and then a potato just for fun (but I almost never finish it.)
When I’m not eating a huge breakfast I’m a sucker for an uncrustable PB&J. They’re just perfect for throwing in your bag and saving for a quick bite! I eat them so much I’m kind of sick of them now? But they are one of the best on-the-go meals. Do you have any similar snacks you love? I’m looking for a new fave!
What are your pre-work routines? Is there a meal or snack you always order/make before a big day?
Have a great week,
