Since I’m super busy with school, work, my internship, working out and trying to find time to sleep I bring to you a day in the life of me. Enjoy!
5:37 Alarm #1 goes off. I think “absolutely not. But I have PT and have to leave by 5:50.”
5:40 Alarm #2 goes off. “Ugggh fine I’ll drag my @$$ out of this comfy, squishy heavenly bed to go to PT.” Not happy.
5:43 Back-up alarm #3 goes off. I am a bit OCD. I set 3 alarms and have to check that they’re all set at least 5 times before I go to sleep. Yes, I am crazy.
6:10. PT starts. Army PT is quite monotonous. Do some push-ups and core exercises. Do some running. Snoooze-fest.
7:30 Return from PT and highly debate crawling back into bed.
8:00 Resist the urge and head on over to the gym to life some weights. I’m trying to build some strength up to prevent any injury when I train for the RnR Country Music Marathon in April. I’m hulkin up 😉
9:00 Sip on some delicious coffee and read blogs. Gotta get my morning creep on!
9:30 Realize I have to leave in 45 minutes for class and I’m sitting in schweaty clothes.
9:30-10:30 Shower, eat, try to make myself look presentable.
10:30 RUN TO CLASS.
Various hours throughout the day: sit in boring classes and take thousands of notes.
But between classes I’m most definitely creeping on the blogs and Twitter–no worries.
4:00-5:30 Relax. I was laying in bed debating taking a nap but I decided to watch the Biggest Loser episode from last week. I was real sad to see Courtney go home–but she looks great!
6:00pm finally drag myself out for a run. It is getting dark so early and I totally don’t like it. Got caught running in the dark and got a little freaked out. Guess I should start relaxing after the run instead of before so I have daylight to work with.
Thank you God for giving me a pair of legs that allow me to run. It is a true blessing.
Today however I had a hard time getting out for the run since I was so cold and it was windy and super cloudy out. Thanks to Twitter and an amazing community at Tone It Up I instantly found motivation and completed a nice 4 miler.
7:00pm “Refuel” with coffee–while reading more blogs! It was chilly and my apartment was freezing so I wanted coffee the second I walked into the door. Delicious!
7:30 Make a delicious dinner. I’m doing the ToneItUp 7Day Slim Down right now so I’m on a strict “diet”. Tonight called for tilapia with asparagus–absolutely fantastic.
8:00-11:00 Homework, tidying up, homework, homework, homework. I’ve taken a ridiculous amount of international law notes and now I’m moving onto one of my three assigned chapters for History tonight. Man, I cannot wait to be a college grad.
On top of the homework for tonight I’m doing my laundry. Now that I’m done with this post I get to tackle my mound of laundry that needs to be folded… lucky me.
When I finally get done with the readings, hopefully no later than midnight I will read a devotional and spend some QT with my foam roller. My hip is aggravated right now!
So there you have it–a semi-typical day in my life. Like most college kids, it’s nothing too exciting.
Would you rather fold laundry or dry dishes?
I really don’t like folding laundry but drying dishes would definitely take the cake.
Do you think it’s a bad idea to take an hour or two to relax in the middle of your day?
Sometimes having a power nap or watching a TV show helps me, other times it just makes me super lazy.
