So, a little over a month ago I posted a blog about how I fuel my workouts. And that seemed to have a good response. So, I wanted to do a follow up article and take you through a day in my life. This will give you an exact visual on how I fit workouts into my busy day, and how nutrition gets divided up as well. Everyday is different because my workout schedule varies through the week. So, I have chosen one week day to walk you through. So, without further ado, here is my average Tuesday.
Right after I wake up I stretch a little bit and have a glass of warm water with lemon
7:00am: Breakfast time
A typical breakfast (and what I ate the day I’m writing this) is rolled oats with Truvia sweetener, cinnamon, chopped almonds, and chia seeds. This fuels me for my morning!
7:30am: Time for work
Around this time I start training my first client of the day, and I make sure those individuals start their day off as healthy as I’m trying to.
9:30am: Workout #1 – Resistance Training
I do 30-40 minutes of strength training… Tuesday’s are normally my chest and back day. Here’s the workout I did today:
Activation 3x: Band pull, windshield wipers, TRX narrow row
Supersets 3x each: TRX Y-fly + TRX Push-up, Wide Row + Narrow press, Single arm reverse cable fly + Standing chest press, Glide Push-up + Seated lat-pull down
Burnout (AMRAP): Commando plank into narrow row
10:00am: Emails, blog, and protein snack
I spend an hour or two trying to knock off some of the things on my to-do list: making phone calls, responding to emails, writing blogs, and editing workout videos. And I do all this while eating a snack high in protein to help repair my muscles post-workout. Today the snack was an Ezekiel sprouted grain tortilla with (crunchy) organic peanut butter.
I separate my strength and cardio because… I want to. Today I ran for 30-minutes and then did some elliptical with high resistance to work my legs a little (I’m always finding a reason to work legs)
Today I had my burrito bowl with veggies… mmm 🙂
2:00pm: Back to work
I have 3-4 more clients to train the rest of the day. I have little breaks here and there, and with those breaks I either: A – be productive or B – watch Doctor Who on Netflix… I also have a snack at some point.
7:00pm (ish): Feed me!
Depending on where my clients fall, I have dinner at some point. Dinner is always filled with veggies and protein. I have fewer carbs at dinnertime because I’m done working out for the day.
9pm: Who knows…
What I do with my evenings after I’m finished with work always varies. I might meet up with friends, work more from home, write, or veg out and do absolutely nothing.
