Many of y’all consistently ask me if I even sleep. How do I get things done? How do I find the time to cook? You know, I am not really sure how I get everything done. It has to be God intervening. But there are some things I don’t get done consistently and that’s okay. So here’s a pretty typical day in the life…
5:25 AM – Alarm goes off. My feet hit the floor. I groggily put on my workout clothes, drink my pre-workout, and fill my water bottle up.
5:45 AM – Leave for 6 AM Crossfit. Get there, set up, stretch
6:00 AM – 7:00 AM – Workout of the day.
7:00 AM – Home. I will be honest, most times I sit around for a half hour, scrolling through social media and checking my email.
7:30 – 8:30 AM – Hit the shower OR take a bath. Depends on how sore I am. While I am getting dressed, I find a sermon on my phone and listen to it. Start my day out with the Lord.
8:30 AM – Eat. Or at least I try. Some days I walk out the door with breakfast in my hand.
9:00 AM – Arrive at work. Ideally I am on time. In reality, this rarely happens.
9:00 – 10:00 AM – This is probably my most productive time of the morning. I write blogs, I make infographics, I do any social media business, I answer emails. Most of the time in the mornings after my workouts my brain is full of all sorts of content so if I don’t sit down first thing when I get to my desk and write, I lose them.
12:00 PM – Eat lunch. Usually I go home and enjoy lunch with my husband. This has changed with harvest. Some days when I reheat my leftovers, I take photos while it is light out for my recipes to share on the blog.
Afternoon – Some days I am solely doing work stuff, some days I am still writing or doing social media stuff along with work. It depends on our season and what we’ve got going on at the office. No matter what though, I am usually in the office in case someone shows up or the phone rings.
5:00 PM – Head home from work. Stop by the grocery store if I need anything for supper. Sometimes I clean, do laundry, and do things at the computer before I cook. Sometimes I will be honest, I plop on the couch and watch an episode of a TV show I’m addicted to. AHEM, Scandal…
6:00 – 8:00 PM This time is typically solely devoted to cooking, eating, and cleaning up that mess.
9:00 PM – Brush my teeth, wash my face, and get in bed. I typically read for a little bit to settle my mind so I can sleep, get up the next day, and repeat.
There you have it… Most days aren’t glamorous. Some days bring unexpected events, but for the most part it’s fairly routine. I owe a lot to planning, whether it be posts on my blog (even though I never seem to follow my schedule) or planning my meals for the week, making a grocery list, and buying everything I will need in one shot. One goal I have for the coming months is trying to stay on a cleaning schedule.
