Day in the Life Lately.

I did a post on this a while back but since life has changed in the last few years I thought I’d do a day in the life post on my routine as of late. Life is still pretty busy but I’ve tried to manage to find a balance in the midst of it all. Having two jobs is always fun (full time working behind the scenes writing for television, part time fitness instructor) so it can get hectic from time to time. Gotta love it.

5-5:30 a.m.: Up and at ‘em for an early morning run with the Irving Running Club. I host this morning run group during the work week, so often times I will run with them, or run solo on days that we do not meet. The best way to start the day…see a stellar sunrise.

7-7:30 a.m.: Shower, have a banana. Do some yoga stretching/foam rolling in my living room. Gotta stretch out those tight runner’s hips, calves and hamstrings.


9 a.m.: Get to work, check some emails over my morning coffee. Put out a few early morning fires before our live show.


11 a.m.: Live show (Marcus and Joni on Daystar if you watch Christian TV, it’s entertaining I promise you!) sit in the control room doing behind the scenes producer type stuff.

Noon: Show is over, lunchtime. Sometimes I’ll go for a 2nd short run for the day or I’ll wait until after work.

5:30 p.m.: Head out from work, maybe short run to warm up before heading to job number 2 for the day. Spin cycle at 24 Hour Fitness.


6:30 p.m.: Teach class at the gym for an hour, maybe lift some weights after class if I have time.


7:45-8 p.m.: Shower, eat dinner (usually prepped or something that I bought from Trader Joe’s) while catching up on the Real Housewives of Atlanta or some crazy reality shows.

8:30 p.m.: Accidentally fall asleep on the couch while watching said shows.

9:00 p.m.: Drag myself to the bed, bedtime and lights out by 9:30-ish.

Then get up and do it all again! So now you know.

What does your day in the life look like?

  1. What a lovely life you have! I am a busy mom, student and worker. Training and art takes alot of my time. Wish I had the time to sit and watch the house wifes!
    Love that you run AND hold fitness classes! Truely inspiering!

      1. I guess we just do the training mainly to stay away from insanity. I do for sure. In June I have my exams and then I have some more time for fun things or even join hot yoga or spinning to mix my running and gym up. Thank you for an inpirering blog. Xx

  2. That is a jam packed day. I have to check out your show, see what’s goin on. I have to throw up a post about day in the life, mine is crazy jam packed too. Always cool to see the schedule of other runners.

  3. I LOVE reading people’s “life in a day”!! Probably because I’m nosy. But I love your schedule !! You are so motivational. I can’t wait until my day has more routine to it! Also— Amen to the trashy reality shows. Currently watching housewives as we speak.. or I type.. You know what I mean!
