An Updated Day in the Life {Fall 2017}

Over the summer, I did a series called Teacher Off Duty and had a lot of fun with it. One of my favorite posts from that series was Teacher Off Duty: A Day in the Life. Well, this teacher has been back on duty for about eight weeks and things are looking different these days, so I figured it was time for an update! I started at a new school in August and am currently training for a half marathon, so life is crazy busy. Buckle in!

4:15-4:30 a.m.: My alarm goes off and wakes me for the day. I drag myself out of bed and stumble into the bathroom to get dressed for my workout. My husband stays in bed for about another hour and does his best to ignore the tiny streams of light peeking through the doorway.

4:30-5:20 a.m.: I start the coffee and let Pippa out to potty and then she goes right back to sleep. Next, I put my shoes on to get ready for my workout. Lately, I’ve been doing traditional weight lifting (in the comfort of my own home!), so I transition between upper body and lower body depending on the day. I still like to add in about one day of total body and one day of yoga per week!

How to Drink More Water: 5 Tips & Tricks for Staying Hydrated

Most days of the week, I feel like I’ve got this healthy lifestyle thing figured out… Until it comes to my water intake.
