So I thought it might be fun to give you a little peak into what a typical day looks like for me. This was yesterday. It was a pretty low key day so I thought it would be the perfect one to share.
On with my day….
5:15 AM: My alarm goes off! Time to get up and get my early morning cardio in before it is time to wake up the boys.
5:25 AM: I am in my workout cloths head down into the kitchen and have a little pre workout drink then off to the basement and hit the treadmill for a sweaty 30 minutes.
6:15 AM: I hop in the shower even though I plan to go to the gym this morning but I am super sweaty and feel gross. I get dressed in workout cloths and dry my hair.
7:00 AM: Start to wake the boys up. Get Jaxin dressed and then get Zaxari dressed, brush teeth and head downstairs for breakfast.
7:25 AM: Whip up breakfast! Cereal and banana for the boys. Egg white omelette, sprouted grain toast with avocado and grapefruit for me.
7:55 AM: Give the boys their vitamins, clean up breakfast dishes and pack up lunches, snacks and my post workout food to go. Along with a very large coffee!
8:30 AM: Time to get out the door and get Jaxin to school. I leave early to get a spot closer to the school so it is not so far to walk Jaxin to the door. If I arrive too late then I have to park a million miles away! I start the car, get it loaded, get the boys in their jackets and boots and away we go.
8:45 AM: At school. While we wait for the 9AM bell I sit and relax a bit drink my coffee and check my phone.
9:10 AM: Success! Jaxin is in school and now it is time for Zaxari and I to go to the gym. I have my pre workout drink in the car on the way.
9:15 AM: At the gym! It is very close! Drop Zaxari in the daycare and get my leg day started! New workout plan today and it was a challenging one. Love it! Lots of squats…gotta build that booty!
11:15 AM: Done my workout. Pick up Zaxari from the daycare and head out to the car where I have my post workout meal.
Oats mixed with chocolate peanut butter protein powder and topped with blueberries. YUM! I eat it with what is left of my coffee.
11:45 AM: Arrive home. Change Zaxari’s diaper, put away our stuff, clean out the lunch bags and sit down for a bit and check email and Facebook! HA! Start a load of laundry.
12:30 PM: Make Zaxari lunch…he is now hungry. I put together a ham and cheese sandwich and hope he eats it. He does…and ALL of IT!! A miracle to say the least!!
1:15 pm: Start to make my lunch. Today I decide to have shrimp, whole wheat pasta, tomatoes and spinach with olive oil and a few kalamta olives thrown in at the last minute. So good! This lunch was fast and easy since I had everything already prepped in the fridge. Just warmed it all up in the skillet!
2:35 PM: Change Zaxari’s diaper and start to get ready to go and get Jaxin from school. Zaxari decides that it is a nice time to totally MELTDOWN because he does not want to leave and get Jaxin. Well I ignore said temper tantrum and proceed to dress him and get him in the car which takes 15 minutes!!
3:00 PM: Pick up Jaxin from school. Zaxari is now fine and acts like nothing ever happened sweet as pie! BAH!!
3:20 PM: Home from school and time to relax a little. I give the boys a snack. Put the load of laundry in the dryer and start another load. Also start the dishwasher it is full.
4:15 PM: Devin arrives home from work. I decide that since he is home early it is the perfect time for me to make a quick trip to the grocery store alone! But first I need to have my 4th meal of the day or I will want to buy everything in sight! Must be prepared.
I whip up an Egg, Oat, banana and flax seed pancake!
Top it with a little peanut butter and sugar free maple syrup. Chow it down! Simple and delicious.
5:00 PM: Head to the grocery store and get the few things we need. While I am gone Devin feeds the kids supper.
6:10 PM: Back home put away the groceries, empty the dishwasher, put in the dirty dishes, get the boys to clean up all their toys let them watch Caillou while I start to make my supper.
7:30 PM: Devin goes and gives the boys a bath and I eat my supper. Another throw everything into a pan and hope for the best meal!
In my bowl is: Chicken breast, mushrooms, peppers, onion, black beans and corn then I topped it with fresh tomatoes, cilantro, avocado and hot sauce. Yup…it was GOOD! While I was eating I started to write this post.
8:10 PM: Plan and prep my food for tomorrow, make Jaxin’s lunch and make Zaxari a snack for school.
9:00 PM: My last meal of the day and my favourite meal! Vanilla Casein Pudding!
9:30 PM: Bedtime and light outs! Hitting the gym very early……..alarm set for 4:15 am.
