A Day in the Life...

Holy sh*t - I have SO MUCH to do this week!! I'm covering for a colleague at work this week and early next week while he's on PTO. It's insanity. However, I WILL NOT complain because this is the same co-worker who covered for me on my vacation. I totally owe him. I go into hyper-productive mode when I have tons to do anyway, so I'll just be kicking some a** and taking names for the next several days. ;)

Totally unrelated to this post, but LOVE this picture from the top of Stone Mountain on Sunday!
Anyway... Since I've basically started every post for the last several weeks with a comment or 2 about how busy I am, I thought I'd give you a a glimpse into a day in the life! Here goes...

5:00 am: Alarm goes off; I roll out of bed and change into my exercise clothes.

5:10 am: Hop in the car and drive 7ish minutes over to my Pure Barre studio.

5:30 am: Pure Barre class! Such a great way to start the day!

6:40 am: Arrive home from Pure Barre, grab whatever breakfast I prepped for myself the night before, and multi-task - simultaneously eat breakfast and put my make up on, all while chit-chatting with my girls and listening to Pandora.

Multi-tasking at it's finest...
7:20 am: Say goodbye to Daddy and Big Girl as they leave for the elementary school.

7:30 am: Walk out the door with Baby Girl and head to daycare.

7:40 am: Drop off Baby Girl and head to work.

8:10 am: Arrive at work, make some coffee, get my inbox under control, and get down to business.

9:00 am: Eat a snack at my Varidesk and continue plugging away at my work.

12:00 pm: Heat up my packed lunch in the kitchen and then eat it at my desk while continuing to work.

3:00 pm: Snack #2 at my desk!

5:00 pm: Leave the office and head for daycare.

5:30 pm: Pick up Baby Girl.

5:45 pm: Arrive at home and start making dinner.

6:00 pm: Daddy and Big Girl get home.

6:15 pm: We all sit down for dinner.

6:30 pm: Clean up from dinner, prep tomorrow's breakfast and pack lunches.

6:45 pm: Get the girls in the tub and then in jammies.

We make time to be silly, too!
7:30 pm: Bring Baby Girl in her room for books and then bedtime. (Daddy and I alternate nights putting each kid to bed.)

8:00 pm: Daddy puts Big Girl to bed; Mommy heads out for a run.

I've grown to love nighttime running.
9:00 pm: Hop in the shower, put on jammies, then do some work on the computer and/or blog.

10:00 pm: Collapse into bed and get some sleep before doing all over again tomorrow.

Wow - I'm tired just typing that out! As you can see, I start and end my day with exercise. Sure, it takes some time and careful planning to fit it in, but it does wonders for my sanity! I'm not sure I'd make it through the rest of the daily routine without it.

What time of day do you usually exercise?
