I haven’t done a “day in the life” post in a while, so I figured I share one in terms of a typical work day for me vs. a #momlife one.
Don’t worry, one of those are coming soon too. 😉
Typically, I have two to three of these work days each week and the other days I am at home with the kiddos.
For our family, we have a good balance where I work part-time and stay at “home” the days I am off.
4:45am: Wake up, drink water, get dressed and brush my teeth.
5:00am: Gather all my drinks, snacks and meals for work and start the car. Thank goodness for this invention, especially here in New England.I always put on my my work[out] clothes on the night before, which saves me some time in the morning. On this particular day, I even left a few minutes early!
I try not to spend too much time in the house. I keep the lights mostly off in the house to avoid waking up the little ones.
4:55-5:00am: Leave for work.
5:50am: Get to work, make coffee, catch up on emails and any “clerical” duties.6:30am: HIIT class or PT session.
Sometimes I have three people in the morning and do a class, other times I have one and do a personal training session for them. It’s fun for me because each week is kind of a surprise for those early morning classes.
7:30am: Done with class/ PT session, catch up on any more emails and work on some workout routines for class or clients.7:45am: Breakfast.
Typically I have some nut butter, a banana, oats + more coffee.
9:45am: Workout – usually a HIIT workout.10:45am: Shower.
11:00am: Read, watch YouTube or work on a blog post.12:00pm: Second class (HIIT or Barre).12:50pm: Class over.
1:30pm: Clean the gym and get ready to leave work.2:30pm: Get to Starbucks hang for a bit, eat lunch and read.4:00pm: Get home and dad takes the kiddos to the library.
4:30pm: Get the house cleaned up, relax and start working on dinner.5:30pm: Dad comes back with the kids and we eat dinner.
That sums up what a work day looks like for me. My night time routine typically is the same each day, but my morning routine obviously varies when I work.
As you can tell, I am really making an effort to read more. Even if I just get to read done on my work days, it’s better than no days. ❤
