6:00 Alarm goes off. I hit snooze twice. I’m out of bed by 6:15. I pack my gym bag and brush my teeth. I go to the gym 3-4 days a week.
6:30 Breakfast. I’m pretty boring when it comes to breakfast. Most days I have oatmeal with crasins and a dash of cinnamon. I have it with green juice and a glass of water. If I change it up, I have chicken apple sausage sliced with egg beaters on a bagel thin. I usually do this on days I don’t go to they gym. Along with coffee. On non gym days coffee is one of the first things on my list.
6:30-7:15 Me Time. I wake up early for me time. In my opinion, there is no better way to start the day. I read Jesus Calling while I have breakfast. After that, I design my orders for the day using a computer program. My goal is three orders a day. I also try to do my cleaning for the day at this time. My cleaning task is always written my planner. I fill it out a month at a time. If it’s not in my planner it doesn’t get done! If I have extra time, I will read some blogs or work on posts. Almost 100% of my posts are scheduled so I don’t have to worry about them in the morning.
7:15: AG wakes up. Sometimes she’ll sleep until 7:30, we wake her if she’s not up by then. On this particular day, hubs worked from 7-7 but usually he wakes AG up in the morning. It’s his thing. While he’s getting her up and dressed (with outfits I pick out), I get ready for the gym.
7:45: Breakfast for the mini. She’s the pickiest in the morning. Most mornings breakfast is a banana and a pancake or few mini muffins. Half of the week she won’t eat what I give her. It’s a battle I’ve given up on. While she eats, I plan out my day.
8:15-9:45 Gym Time. We get there by 8:30 most days. I try to do 2 classes a week and 2 cardio/weight workouts on the other 2 days. On this day, I did Body Combat. The class finished at 9:30. I showered at the gym, we were in the car by 9:45 on our way to a 10:00 playdate.
10:00-12:00 Coffee Playdate (This is when most of our playdates are. If we don’t have any playdates we will run errands.) I have a snack at this time and usually coffee. Snacks are always a Lara bar, kind bar or luna bar. I keep them in my bag so i can eat when I leave the gym.
12:00 Lunch (it’s usually at 11:30, but we were a little late getting home). Lunch is always a turkey sausage patty, grapes and a rice cake or crackers. While she eats, I ship my orders for the day. I have a basket with my labels, tissue paper, envelopes and anything else I need to ship. I bring it to the dining room table and try to get it all done before she finishes eating. I let her watch TV while she eats.
12:30-2:30 Nap. Somedays she’ll nap until 3, others she’ll get up at 2. When she naps, I eat lunch and start working. I only had a snack and coffee today since I ate at the playdate and needed more coffee. I also immediately changed into jammers (both AG and I) since it was freezing outside.
As soon as she’s down, I head to my office. For the first hour of her nap, I will answer emails while I eat. Sometimes I’ll have a dvr’d show on in the background. During the second hour, I embroider. My goal is to have two of three shirts done by the end of her nap.
2:30 Snack. Applesauce & veggie straws or cheerios.
3:00-4:00 Mommy School. Most days this lasts 40 minutes. On this day we did her handprint fish, played with her sensory box, read 2 books and did puzzles.
4:00-5:00 Play Time: If it’s a nice day I try to get her outside. I’ll take her around in her wagon or we go to the park. If we stay home, we will play with her toys upstairs. On Monday, we go to the grocery store. On this day, I folded laundry while she made a mess of her toys.
5:45-6:45 Downstairs playtime. She usually takes her milk after dinner and finishes it before her bath. The remainder of this time is spent playing with baby dolls, reading books and climbing all over the furniture. If I’m starving I’ll eat at this time. If it’s a good day, daddy is home at 6:30 and we eat together before bath.
6:45 Bath Time. When daddy comes home he takes over and does bath. While he does that, I get started with my last order of the night. My goal is to have that last order done by 8pm. Since he wasn’t home, I did bath time on this particular day.
7:30 Bed for AG. Daddy does book and bed. I try to pick up the house if I have my orders done. If the dishes and cleaning don’t get done now, they won’t be done until the next day. Once I sit down at 8:00, I’m down for the night.
8:00-10:30 Winding Down. This is the time hubs and I will watch our shows and movies. I do my blogging at this time and finish up answering any emails I missed or send invoices if need be. Some nights I’m behind and need to work. Since I’ve cut down on the number of orders I take, most nights I don’t work late. When I get in bed, I will read, get on Pinterest or scroll through IG if I’m not tired enough to fall asleep.
