Thank you all so much for your feedback on my last post – I plan on talking about it soon and sharing some of the ideas as well as considering a Facebook page 🙂 Oh and I’ll be replying to comments either tonight or tomorrow..I’ve been a busy bee…which brings me to the topic for this post!
A typical day of classes for me consists of nonstop business from about 9am til 10pm. Super duper exciting, right? Well, I try my hardest to make it that way. Fortunately I only go through this process 3 days a week and have Thursday and Friday to myself and my projects/social life/nap time. And when I say “nap time” I mean hibernation time. I’m pretty used to having such a long day though and to be honest, even though most of it is spent on my rear end in class, I still manage to fit in some fun. For my own sanity and the sanity of others – cause no one likes a bitch!
I always, always, always…did I say always?…start my day with breakfast. A big, ginormous, Hulk-sized breakfast. I don’t understand how people can come to class without having eaten anything! I’m afraid to do that because I think I’d most likely end up in a corner gnawing on a chair or someone’s arm…and that’s just asking for a bad reputation. I wake up early enough to fix myself a nice bowl of shenanigans that’ll keep me full for a few hours. I also bring tons of bars/snacks with me to class and munch every 2 hours or so. You can check out this post for the usual snackity suspects!
Between classes I usually have about an hour break, where my friends and I will grab lunch, or take an exercise class (hello Zumba!) If so, I make sure to wear what I call a multi outfit…clever, I know. Basically an outfit that can easily be transformed from an obvious workout outfit to a more casual and “normal” outfit, catch my drift? Example: leggings with a cami, that I can easily throw a cardigan over to make it look ok for class. This way, after I workout (and if I don’t get too sweaty) all I have to do is change my shoes (if necessary) and pop on the cardigan. This works visa versa too, if I’m going from class to a workout. Lastnight I met up with my cousin Carly for ab attack! Next week? Zumba!
A few extra necessities to carry around? Scarves and dry shampoo! Quickest fixes ever!
Also, I ALWAYS cook on the weekends so that I have quick go-to meals for when I actually do get the chance to swing by my apartment and have lunch or dinner! This week, I’ve been relying on spaghetti squash, a pot of chili I cooked over the weekend, shredded cheese and tons of frozen veggies which I can nuke for a few minutes. Prepping on the weekend is KEY! It saves you tons of money too, especially if you usually eat out or buy frozen meals.
What are your busiest days of the week?
What do you to do save time/sanity?
Peace and love!
