I know there are quite a few other bloggers who have done “Day in the Life” posts and recently I had someone on twitter ask if I would do one as well. I loved the challenge and thought it would be fun for a lot of you knew readers to see how many “shoes” I do wear. I am blessed to have so many amazing touch points everyday to help people transform spiritual, mentally and physically.
So here you go…
I naturally wake up around 6am, yes I am one of those annoying morning people (awesome morning tips and tricks). It’s all about going to bed at a consistent time!! Of course Mr.B has already snuck up in bed and is ready to take my spot once I get up.
I lie in bed checking email, IG, and responding to comments on the bloggy. I wish I could say I get up and do this from the computer, but with a SMART phone I can be lazy.
Then I finally roll out of bed and throw on my workout clothes for my first Personal Training session of the day. (Hubby has already been up for about 2 hours and is already working, he is an EARLY EARLY riser).
Then my day at WORK has begun.
My first PT session is at 6:30am and is in our garage which is wonderful, because it’s only a few feet from my bed! I can’t wait to show you all the re-modeling we have done this weekend!
I kick people’s butts into shape.
I finish around 7:15 quickly jump in the shower and sip on my cup of Starbucks from my Keurig ,it takes like 5 seconds to brew! Most mornings I read Jesus Calling, but recently have started an online study with some awesome ladies called Soul Detox and it couldn’t have come at a better time. If you want to join in read here.
By then I hope my hair is half way dry and I finish blow drying it, do a quick curl, and get dressed for work. I work at a camp so I can really wear just about anything, but choose to look a bit decent
I quickly grab my breakfast (Shakeolgy), coffee, water, and my lunch (I prepped the night before) and drive to work. My commute is only 16 minutes, but 3,000 elevation gain. I work at a Christian Conference and Retreat Center as a Guest Conference Host. In short I am the lead in our office and also help plan retreats (basically like a wedding coordinator). I never take my drive for granted!
I arrive at work between 8 and 8:30 and take Hubby his Shakeolgy. I have already finished mine in the car.
I sit at my desk and tackle emails and voice-mails. I typically triple fist it, it’s how I roll!
When everyone get’s in the office, we all play a quick game of 3 on 3 office chair basket ball, we don’t take ourselves seriously
While working I get random emails from Living Social giving me the deal of the day and I get a good laugh out of my co-workers.
12:30pm comes and I am ready to get out of the office and meet Hubby for lunch. I know that I am super blessed to be able to eat lunch with my Husband everyday at work and I couldn’t imagine life any other way. Sometimes I stay inside the office and catch up on personal emails and phone calls as well, it all depends on the day.
I usually have some type of salad beast for lunch everyday. I really love salmon, chicken, or even sardine salads! I try and incorporate lots of protein in my lunch, because it keeps me satisfied for the rest of the afternoon.
After lunch I am usually in meetings (I am mostly in meetings all morning too) so I carry my water bottle around like it’s an accessory.
2pm the bell rings and it’s time for STAFF RECESS!!!! I am telling ya, I have the best job in the world (we don’t always have recess, but it is common).
Around 3:30 it’s time for my afternoon snack and enjoy a Fitmixer protein shake and an apple. I am usually in a meetings mixing it up and people think I am a nut! I leave around 4:30 to head down the hill for another PT session, blaring my new John Mayer CD of course.
5pm roll’s around and I meet up with my afternoon PT clients and kick their butts till about 6:30pm.
I have about an hour before I teach Kickboxing so I usually write-up my Summer Shred email, check my Fitmixer Bootcamp workout for the day, update my Summer Beachbody Facebook Challenge and make sure Hubby has dinner, but this is just Wednesday’s the only day I teach KB.
If it is Wednesday… About 7pm I drink some Fitmixer Amino Acids to give me a bit of a boost and enjoy a banana. I drive to kickboxing (it’s about 15 minutes from my house) and catch up on the phone (blue tooth of course) with my parents, a family member, or a friend. Every minute counts!
The rest of the week typically (if there is a typical) looks like this….
If I am not teaching KB then I do my WORKOUT after PT around 6:30pm. This can be anything from a run, kickboxing, and or my Fitmixer Bootcamp workout for the day.
After my workout I refuel:
Around 7:30pm I fix Hubby and I dinner, unless it’s date night then we go out While dinner cooks I prep for lunch the next day. Date night for us is normally Thursday’s or Saturdays, or shoot sometimes BOTH! We just love hanging out together and we know there will come a day where it won’t be as easy.
After dinner I check a few more emails (Hubby does the dishes) , send out my Summer Shred workout, catch up on IG and Facebook . I am really trying to end all my time on the computer and phone an hour before I go to bed, but I am failing miserably. I think 30 minutes is more reasonable. You should see how well I multi-task, there are times where I am brushing my teeth, putting on mascara while curling my hair!!! I am a nut!!
Around 9pm if I am craving something sweet I enjoy some plain Chobani, a little fruit, and Xagave for my last meal of the day. I try and always eat 6 meals a day no matter what!!!
Around 9:30pm it’s family time! Most nights of the week are spent lounging on the couch for about an hour catching up with the roomies (we have a couple of roommates right now that are in transition looking for a place), Hubby and playing with Mr.B. We usually catch up on our DVR for a good laugh as well. Some of our favorites are Modern Family, Baseball, and Last Man Standing.
I cap off the night with a cup of decaf tea and head to bed around 10:45pm. I try and get to sleep by 11pm so I can get in 7 solid hours of sleep (obviously that is not happening tonight as this post is taking me forever).
Note that although this is a typical day, my schedule varies a lot., sometimes we have random birthday parties, spontaneous adventurous out to baseball games, or even the occasional taco/baseball nights with friends! Hope you enjoyed a day in the life of this crazy McCormick.
I am busy. But I do take rest days!
