It’s my Do-What-You-Want Day

Happy Friday Loves! At least it is for me.  Well actually Friday’s are always happy because they are my Do-Whatever-You-Want Day.  Some call it a cheat day, some call it I need a break day, no matter how you choose to label it this is the one day of the week that I don’t live by rules.

I can wear jeans to work

At my office we’re allowed to wear jeans on Fridays.  This definitely starts the day off on the right foot.  The vibe is more relaxed but surprisingly I don’t slack off.  The fact that I’m comfortable is a huge help to my creative process.

I hate leaving things pending so I use Friday’s to catch up on everything I didn’t have time to do during the week, then I can leave for the weekend without any worries.

I eat whatever I want

Within reason of course.  I don’t stuff my face with unhealthy food all day, but if I want to grab an ice cream cone after lunch or a Frappuccino from Starbucks in the afternoon I do it and I do it guilt free.  I don’t bring my lunch to work on Friday’s and try to meet up with friends.

Of course I still get my portions of fruits, veggies and water in for the day but I don’t stick to as strict of a diet as I usually do throughout the week.  Having one day a week were I can just live without any rules makes me feel like I’m not sacrificing too much when it comes to saving money and healthy eating.

Good night’s sleep

One of the best things about Friday is knowing when I wake up the next day it’s Saturday.  I can go to bed without running through my list of things to do the next day and I can lay in bed watching TV as late as I want because I know that I don’t have to wake up to an alarm clock in the morning.  I really hate my alarm clock.

Is this just me or do you love Friday nights too?  I know this may sound crazy but I really look forward to Saturday (and Sunday) morning breakfasts.  I will do anything for an extra few minutes of sleep so I usually grab breakfast to go during the week.  However on Friday night I look forward to waking up Saturday morning to French Toast or Pancakes.

It’s totally perfect.
