I thought it would make a good blog post to share all of that with you. We've all got our obstacles to fitness - the number one excuse I always here is time. Money is second, but that's a whole different post and a deep dive into values...I'm just not going there right now.
Today and tomorrow I'm going to share a typical day in my life - from the moment I get up to the time I go to bed. You'll see what I do all day and how I fit it all in.
Mondays 4:44am - The alarm goes off
4:51am - I spring out of bed - I say spring because it's all about attitude, and it's so important to start your day off right. Here's a side note: don't get out of bed thinking, "I HAVE TO go to work." Instead, think, "Today, I take one step closer to my achieving my dreams!"

Wednesday's are relatively similar with the exception of the time between the 6:00am and 9:30am class. I don't go home to workout. I have a business-networking meeting (BNI) from 7:00am - 8:30am with 60+ other local business owners (this has been a huge lead generation source for me). I typically network with one or more folks after the meeting until about 9:00am, and then I head to the 9:30 class.
I do my workout and filming in the afternoon around 4:00pm before I have to get ready for the evening boot camp class.
Also, instead of the MYM program after the 6:00pm class I head home and catch up on emails & phone calls until about 8:00pm. Then Janell and I go for about a 30 - 45minute walk and just talk. (We're back to that now that the weather is nice.)
Friday's are just like Monday's except there's no 6:00pm class. That's when I shut down for the day. We typically have our friend Emma over for dinner and a movie. We're actually watching season 1 of Hero's right now :-)
That pretty much does it. As you can see, the days are packed, but I still find time to get in my meals, supplements and workouts. I hope this little look into my day was helpful. Tomorrow, I'll show you a completely different looking day - no boot camp workouts (yet).
