Day in the Life
I love the idea of having insight on how a person’s day-to-day runs! People often ask me what I do for training, what I am eating and how much cardio I do. So I thought I’d share a typical ‘day’!
As most of you know, I have been in full on Competition Mode over the last 9 months for my IFBB Bikini shows. This has truly tested me physically and emotionally. Let me tell you, being a bikini athlete is SO much harder than you think BUT I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s worth every tear, every early morning and every ounce of sweat.
WAKE UP, my alarm goes off. Yep, 3am. I do fasted cardio (cardio on an empty stomach, I will post benefits of this another day!) every day for 60 mins. This is something I really enjoy and have learnt to love! If I do it on the treadmill I’ve been reading which I love. Once I’ve finished my cardio I have my breakfast.
Breakfast for me consists of a protein source, fats & vegetables!
First client. Most of my mornings are fully booked with personal training sessions, which run through until 11am. I absolutely love my job! Every day is different and all of my clients are awesome (and inspiring).
I leave enough time in here for me to eat. I usually eat my pre workout meal.
This meal is usually Fruit & Protein based.
I train for roughly 40-45mis followed by posing practice. I am so fortunate to work in an amazing gym that has a space for me to practice my stage routine.
Time for my post work out meal.
Protein & Carbohydrates based meal!
I tend to use this part of my day to book any meetings, appointments or work on any projects / tasks I need to. To be perfectly honest, this part of the day tests me, I get distracted, hungry or procrastinate. This is usually when I tell myself OPPORTUNITY vs OBLIGATION.
I eat again before I start work.
My afternoon’s personal training sessions vary and I have a tendency to work far too late. Normally getting home at 8pm, I am tired, cranky, hungry and a just mean girl!
I have a meal before in between clients!
Dinner is usually around 7pm for me.
Bedtime, as soon as my head hits the pillow I’m out!
This is just an average day for me, some days are more crazy than others and I’m learning to not over commit myself! I am truly blessed for all the opportunities I receive.
