Day in the life

Happy hump day friends! Hope your day is off to a great start!

I always love day in the life posts.  It is interesting to see what other people’s lives are like and I feel like it allows you to get to know them better.  So today, I thought I would take you through a day in my life.  This was last Friday and is a fairly typical day for me.

4:00am Alarm goes off, I hit snooze.  When it buzzes again at 4:08 I get up and turn on the coffee.  I then lay in bed and catch up on social media and blogs for a bit.

4:30am Time to actually get up.  I pour a cup of coffee and add a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a scoop of collagen.  Then head to the bathroom to start getting ready for the day.

5:00am Mogs wakes up, so I let him out and wake up the hubs so he can start getting ready.  I take a break for meditation while he is in the shower.  This is my favorite time to meditate.  The house is quiet and I feel like it helps me set a positive tone for the day.

6:00am Off to teach Total Body.  I had a great group today and really enjoyed teaching class.  I am always amazed by how fun and energetic my early morning folks are.  Also, repped my alma mater.

7:00am Get ready super fast at the gym and then it’s off to work.  I love this dress, I found it at Ross for like $12.00 a couple years ago.

7:20am Work time and breakfast at my desk.  I am fortunate to have a very short commute between the gym and my office.  Also, I totally mangled that poor egg trying to peel it.

11:30 Take a break to do a 25-minute elliptical workout and read a bit.  My office has a gym in it, which is awesome!  I hadn’t had time to work out at lunch all week, but was able to squeeze in a little workout today.  I also enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected.  It reminds me a lot of Michael Crichton’s writing style.  So if you liked Jurassic Park, check it out.

12:00 Lunchtime!  I almost always eat at my desk but ended up sitting and eating with co-workers, which was a nice treat.  On the menu was leftover cauliflower fried rice with pork and a Kimchi potsticker.

12:50 Back to work.  It was a productive day and I felt good and focused after my little break.

2:00 Quick treat break, these were leftover from a function and were so delicious and chocolatey.

3:30-4:30 Leave work and pick up kiddos.  They are playing and having a good time, so we end up hanging out at school for a few minutes before heading home.

5:00 Baby dinner time.  I normally eat dinner with them but wasn’t feeling ready for a meal.  I snacked on some chips and salsa with them though.  I also tried to eat this yogurt, but only got a couple bites in before my little sidekicks took it over.

5:00-6:30pm Enjoyed a lovely relaxed evening with the babies.  The hubs had to work late, so the babies and I hung out, played and read some books.  We did have a bit of a baby crisis when Paw Patrol wouldn’t play but recovered pretty quickly.   Whenever they get upset about not being able to watch a show, in my mind I always think “in my day we had to wait till Saturday morning for our favorite cartoons.” It is crazy how quickly things change.

6:30-7:30pm Baby bedtime, the little miss goes to sleep pretty quick.  My little dude needs plenty of books and stories to help him get settled in.

7:30-8:00ish Retuck a little dude into bed another 5 times. While wishing I had eaten dinner earlier as I am now starving.

8:00 Dinner and Netflix time

9:30pm Off to bed.
Overall, this is a pretty normal looking Friday for me.  I usually eat dinner earlier though.  I had also planned on having a friend and her newborn over in the evening, but with the babies having been sick that week, we thought it best to reschedule.

Are you an early morning person? Do you typically take a break for meals or eat at your desk/on the go/while doing other stuff?  I know it would be good for me to take a real meal break, but I almost never do.

Hope you have a great day!

  1. I too enjoy hearing and learning about others everyday life. I guess I’m just nosy by nature. LOL
    Love that dress! and, no. I hardly ever sit down to an actual meal 😉

  2. Love how we had the same idea today 😉
    You get up so early!! I’m a morning person for sure but I can’t get up that early and stay up until 9:30…I was in bed at 8:45 last night!
    Enjoy your day!

    1. It is a nice perk! I didn’t start getting up quite that early until after I had kids. Pre kiddos I usually got up around 515-530 during the week. Hope you have a great day!

  3. Wow! You definitely had a busy day! I must say I admire the fact that you eat healthy but don’t hate yourself for a few food splurges. I’m working on getting myself to that point. By the way, 4 in the morning? 😱 😂

    1. Thank you, I am a big believer in balance and everything in moderation, but it has been a process for me. It is early, but I am pretty used to it by now. Hope you have a great day!

  4. I always thought of myself as a morning person, but now that I’m reading all these day-in-the-lives that start before 5am…maybe I’m not! I usually wake up around 5 if I’m working out in the morning, and 6 if I am not!
    That yogurt looks really interesting…where did you get it?

    1. 5am is still pretty early. I mainly started getting up at 4am so I could get ready before the kids wake up, it gives me some time to hang out with them before work. I got it at Frys (Kroger), it was pretty good.

  5. Like you, I always enjoy these little peaks into the behind-the-scenes action of someone else’s life! 🙂 As a blogger too, it’s interesting to see how other bloggers (especially ones who are moms!) fit blogging into a busy everyday life schedule.

    When do you find time for your blog? 🙂

    1. Thanks! I have always been an early bird, but getting up at 4am only started to happen in the last year or so. Wine and sushi seemed like the perfect dinner for a Friday night. Hope you are having a great day!
