Happy Hump Day! How are you out there in bloggy land? Yesterday was NUTS, I hope today I can rally and not feel super drained today. I’m running off some awesome 90 day challenge energy though so I think all is well. Eye twitching is a thing so if that starts I’ll know it’s time to back of the coffee and switch to UCAN When I started typing this post I didn’t intend for it to be a day in the life post, but that’s what it ended up being so let’s roll with it, you guys are good with that right?
A ton of snacking all day long, that’s what happens when I have to be at the gm at 6am and leave at 730pm. Whoah…. dude… whoah is what I tell myself as I zombie my way home starving and in a daze. I feel like I’m the Mr. Turtle in find Nemo or something like that!
5:00-5:30am- get ready for the day
5:30-5:45am- get coffee, let puppy out, grab all my stuff, crap I’m going to be late
5:45-6:00am- drive to work
7am- personal training client
8am– administer an active metabolic assessment, eat a UCAN bar in between intervals. The bar is good, but I think about what else I could have eaten that would have been a whole food instead of a bar. Since detox I’ve really been trying to reduce my consumption of processed foods, including bars.
9am- no show health score appointment, hallaluyah I’ve got time to do the lab reviews I need to get done for the afternoon, eat an ostrim jerky stick because I realize I haven’t eaten any protein, keep drinking coffee, put together lab reviews
10am- long distance nutrition coaching session over the phone, follow up from a stress and resilience test
11am-11:10am- tidy up and emails
11:10-11:15- change to go work out
11:15-11:20 reschedule a client who thought they had an appointment at 11 for an active assessment, worked out better for the client who was really tired
11:20-12:15 cardio day workout: 5 minute warm up, 20 minute 45sec 7.5mph/ 45 sec 5.5mph repeat for 15 minutes + 30 minutes steady low intensity on the bike (read for development meeting on bike)
12:15-12:45- shower and get ready for part 2 of the day, drink aminos while I get ready
12:45-1:05- scramble around getting ready for a meeting, grab tuna and carrots out of lunch box
1:05-2:00- team leadership meeting–> eat lunch & plan 90 day
2:00-3:00- food sensitivity review for a member in Nevada (by phone), eat other 1/2 of muffin while on the phone
3:00-4:00– The 8 Traits Successful People Have In Common Discussion Meeting. The book discussion reminds me how much I LOVE blogging and writing. It motivates me to make sure I start this post and inspires me to combine work life with blogging. I get the idea for a 90 Day Killa Kelli Team Page on the blog with a weekly post for 90 day team members! Get super excited and eat greek yogurt while in meeting. Kind of tune out to the discussion and mentally start planning my posts, workouts, and other programming for my 90 day team.
4:00-5:00pm- a different food sensitivity review for a a different member in Nevada.
5:00-6:00pm- nutrition coaching cancellation, use time to prep 6pm lab review which just became available, work with department head for club 90 day set up plan, try to stay on top of email. Normally I’d be super upset about a cancellation but before 90 day every minute counts to make sure things are running smoothly.
6:00-7:15pm- stress and resilience lab review with client
7:15-7:30- drive home
7:30-8:00- change, make spaghetti squash, douse it with sirracha and add chicken and inhale. Also snack on one mini pancake.
8:00pm-9:00pm- talk with Mr. Hungry and pour myself a bowl of puffins with almond milk
9:00pm-10:00pm- type this post and emails, hungry again and have a banana because they are my favorite, realize I should have had some protein or healthy fat since I already had had a bowl of cereal.
10:00-10:30- drink well rested tea from trader joe’s & more emails
10:30-10:40pm get ready for bed and lights out
Overall a solid workout and pretty good eats with some room for improvement ….like always. Need to have more protein FIRST thing and probably skip the night time banana or cereal but other than that not too bad. Significantly better than diving head first into a jar of peanut butter when I got home which is what I did when I first started working these long days. While it’s overall healthy it’s definitely easy to overdo it.
*Note I’ve done 12-14 hour days consistently for the last couple of months, while they go by quickly I’ve been pulling back away from them. I don’t mind them when I make 2 hours of time to workout in the middle, but still trying not to make a habit of them.
Hope you have a great day!
