Day in the life Tuesday for you today. For whatever reason I seem to always do these posts on Tuesdays and it’s fun to look back at past years and compare.
– Here’s a day in the life from 2011 in my first month of a full-time career in fitness.
– Here’s a day in the life Tuesday from 2013 when I was still managing a gym.
– Here’s a day in the life from January 2014 and February 2014.
– And a Tuesday in the life from January of 2015 (and puppy Zoey!)
Here’s your day in the life for Tuesday, August 25, 2015.
5:25 a.m. – alarm goes off and I awake from a deep, restful sleep
5:30 a.m. – feet on the floor and yoga clothes on. Pack a bag with a change of clothes.
5:45 a.m. – leave for studio
6 a.m. – teach double shot at Y2 Yoga. I love the 6 a.m. crowd. They mean business!
7:45 a.m. – leave for Metro after cleaning the room, showering and getting dressed for the day. I grab a large black coffee from the cafe on the way out.
8 a.m. – train client at Metro
9 a.m. – train client at Metro
10 a.m. – so happy to be home to finally eat breakfast! I do NOT like to wait this late to eat breakfast but I don’t have an option on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It does not work for me to eat before my 6 a.m. class and there’s just no time between teaching and having to be at the gym to train.
I made a smoothie bowl with strawberries, figs, bananas, greek yogurt, cashew milk, spinach, Premier Protein Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder and peanut butter. I topped it with my favorite homemade peanut butter granola.
10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. – a vortex of computer work. This has been an ultra-stressful week when it comes to “computer work” responsibilities. So much to do for the yoga studio, my blog and my book.
I do take some breaks to Snapchat pictures of Zoey (follow me @jendecurtins) because she’s so freaking cute.
2:15 p.m. – lunch. My routine is to snack on some sort of salty chips while I prepare lunch. Today it was pita chips. I have been loving this salad combo this week of spinach/chard/baby kale, cucumbers, roasted golden beets, goat cheese, avocado, lentils and quinoa, almonds and dried cranberries with sesame ginger dressing.
2:30 p.m. – snack on watermelon while I clean up lunch. I got a watermelon at Costco on Sunday and it’s the best one I’ve had all year. Insanely sweet!
2:45 p.m. – back to work on the computer. I mostly worked on things for the studio today and blog emails. I also put together this Instagram Giveaway that I’m partnering with Erin McDermott Jewelry to offer y’all!
Go to Instagram to enter!
4 p.m. – dentist appointment where I receive sad news that 1) I have to get a cavity filled and 2) I have to get a night guard.
5 p.m. – workout at Metro. Run three miles and then a ladder of 10-1 deadlifts and pullups.
6 p.m. – train client at Metro.
7:15 p.m. – home and prep dinner.
7:30 p.m. – walk with Zoey while I chat with my grandmother and my mom.
8 p.m. – home and Google hangout to discuss a cooking competition I’m competing in this weekend.
8:45 p.m. – take chicken out of the oven. Shower.
9 p.m. – dinner and catching up on our days together. Roasted chicken, sauteed spinach, brown rice and sliced tomatoes.
9:30 p.m. – my fiance cleans up dinner while I start blog. We have the whole “I cook, you clean” thing down pat!
10 p.m. – he brings me chocolate on the couch while I blog and watch Orange is the New Black season 3.
10:30 pm. – publish blog.
11 p.m. – I will be in bed! I might read for 15-20 minutes before lights out.
Tell me about your “Tuesday in the life.”
