You asked a lot of questions I've already answered or done posts on, one of which was "What does your typical day look like?"
Since this is constantly changing, it's a little different than the last time I posted about it.
So I thought I'd run down
A typical day in the life of Mama Laughlin (as of late).
4:30am- alarm goes off. I check emails while laying in bed (with only one eye open.. does anyone else do this??) and realize no one cares about me and my inbox is empty. womp womp. ;)
4:45am- "GET UP! MEGAN IS WAITING FOR YOU!" is the thought that goes through my head.
Get up and change into my workout gear, brush my teeth, and make my Spark. Shovel a banana or a ThinkThin bar in my pie hole while I'm walking out the door.
5:00am- meet Megan at the gym. 20-30 minutes cardio then weight lifting for 30-40 mins.
We do all different stuff. Today we ran 3 miles and then did legs. Yesterday we did spin for 20 minutes and then did arms for 40 minutes. We look for new moves all the time and try a bunch of different things.
6:00am- head back home to shower. (Hubs leaves shortly after for work)
6:15-7:15am- shower, wash and style this massive head of hair (that shit takes awhile), put on makeup, etc.
7:30am- Big T gets up and comes in my bathroom where I'm getting ready. Make him breakfast and turn on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for him while he eats and I finish getting dressed, etc.
7:45am- Go give MJ his sippy cup of milk. Let him wake up in his crib and play a bit while I get Big T dressed, then back to MJ and get him dressed, teeth brushed, blah blah.
8:00am- out the door headed to daycare to drop the boys off.
8:15am-8:45am- drive to work. Jam out with my clam out. Seriously. I don't do talk radio in the mornings, I NEED my music. UP LOUD.
8:45am-9:00am- get to work, get water, stuff ready for the day, etc.
12:00pm-1:00pm- lunch with either coworkers or at my desk. Make a salad (usually), sandwich, or grab something quick (Chipotle).
4:00pm-4:30pm- drive home.
4:40pm- pick up kids. Yesterday I got in a run after work. (2 workouts in one day! holla!)
5:00pm-6:30pm- cook dinner, eat dinner, pick up the house, hang out/play with the boys.
If I didn't go to the gym in the morning, then I'm at the gym at this time and The Hubs picks up the boys.
6:30pm-7:00pm- give MJ a bath. Bring iPad in the bathroom and multitask answering emails while playing with MJ.
7:00pm-7:30pm- play with MJ. Snuggle.
7:30pm- give MJ a sippy cup of milk and put him to bed. He sleeps 12 hours. My kids have slept through the night since they were 6 and 8 weeks old. One word- BABYWISE! Google it.
7:30pm-8:30pm- get stuff ready for the next day, play with Big T, maybe watch a show... if by "watch" I mean, have it on in the background while doing a million other things.
8:30pm-9:00pm- The Hubs gives Big T a shower and gets him ready for bed. I've been SOOO tired this week from getting up early so I'm usually laying on the couch or in bed.
9:30pm- I'm asleep. Don't text me. ;)
There you have it.
I have always said I'm NOT a morning person and morning workouts were NOT my thing.
That said, I have actually LIKED getting up at 4:30am this week and getting my workout done early.
I don't like the actual waking up part, but I feel great afterwards and it's a great feeling to know I've already gotten in my workout for the day.
I may actually start making this a habit. ;)
And we were just informed this morning that our gym is starting a 5:30am spin class in March! HELL YES!!! Pretty stoked about that!
Honestly, knowing Megan is at the gym is what motivates me to get up.
Having an accountability partner really makes all the difference!
|if you didn't think we were lesbians before, now you REALLY do. (and NO, I'm not hating on the homosexuals. |
Love, Peace & Chicken Grease!)
Have a great weekend everyone!
I've got something very magical up my sleeve.... deets coming soon~
