It is so interesting to me how fascinated we all are in each others lives. I guess that is why reality TV is so popular. I don’t think that people are judging…maybe just comparing. I get it…I love observing/reading about what others do too! And I like every reality TV show there is.
When I wrote about my Thursday a few weeks ago, the feedback was awesome. Which is funny to me, because not a lot of thought or passion went into writing that post. It was just what I did that day. So I thought I would share what other days look like. One thing I love about this “new life” is that no day is ever the same!
Here is what Monday looked like:
7:00am- Alarm goes off. I love Mondays. Sleeping in until 7am feels like a dream come true. Make bulletproof coffee in my new Nutribullet my mother-in-law gave me. It was an early Christmas gift..my husband and I asked our parents if we could not exchange gifts this year and keep it really simple. Lucky for me, my MIL had already bought the bullet, and gave it to me as a “you are awesome” gift, along with a really sweet card that made my day.
7:15am- Go wake my kids up. Help them with breakfast, packing lunches, feeding Toby, feeding chickens, getting dressed, packing up backpacks, brushing teeth, and signing forms. I LOVE mornings with my kids–everyone is in a good mood, we listen to music, and we are not in a big rush.
8:40am- Kids get on the bus.
9:00am- Meet a client at the YMCA. This client and I meet several times a week to walk on the treadmill, do some light stretching, and some strength exercises. She is recently had numerous surgeries and needs to regain functional fitness. She can do all the work on her own…I am there for accountability. We all need that accountability, and that validation. ..just in different forms.
10:15am- Meet a private client at her house. This client has been doing yoga for a while now, so this was a one time visit to check in with her form and breathwork. Look how awesome her one-legged chattaranga looks! She was really excited when she saw that I brought her some eggs from our chickens!
11:30am- Quick stop at the back to deposit some checks…I started teaching the teachers at a local preschool 2 days a week. I just started, but I already love them!
12:15pm- Flybarre Class with my instructor Mikki. I have stuck to my 3 days a week. I am so proud of myself for making this commitment because I can see and feel results!
1:30pm- Home to eat a quick lunch (avocado chicken salad!), play with Toby, fold this giant pile of my son’s laundry (I do make him put it away!), and upload/edit some pictures for my blog. Does any one else feels like the laundry never ever gets done?
3:00pm- Taught a yoga class at Y2 Yoga. This is a single shot class, which means there are no chaturangas. We also only go through the sequence once on each side which means longer, deeper holds.
4:30pm- Meet my kids at the bus stop, and start to make dinner. I tried a new recipe for Green Chicken Curry–I’ll share this later this week!
5:30pm- Eat dinner-I love and cherish this time.
7:15pm- Back to Y2 Yoga for a double shot class (2 times through the sequence with vinyasas, and the boys go to to Boy Scouts.
9:00pm- You know I go to sleep early…I have to be up at 5:00am on Tuesdays! After I got home, I got in bed and watched Dr. Phil…feeling thankful that other people are crazier than I am.
