Body clock: Eileen Dunne

Newscaster

7.30am

I'm not a big breakfast person and at this point I just have a glass of orange juice and a cup of instant coffee with one lump of sugar and a drop of milk.

8.30am

This morning I have the luxury of being able to sit and enjoy a second cup of coffee and a strawberry yogurt while I read the paper.

10.30am

I do an hour-long Body Balance class, making sure to drink plenty of water.

Noon

I walk back home, then shower and get my clothes organised for work. I'm starving when I sit down to eat a ham and coleslaw sandwich on wholegrain bread.

1pm

I drive up the road to the hairdressers where I get my hair done for work. Once I am there, my work day has formally begun.

1.45pm

I drive back home, grab my outfit for tonight's broadcast and then head for RTÉ.

3pm

I have a cup of coffee with a banana and walnut muffin from the canteen.

7pm

I have to record my promo for the nine o'clock news, but that only takes a minute or two. We then have a meeting about tonight's programme.
