Setting a routine

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, I see my personal trainer at 8am. This causes me to adhere to a strict morning schedule. Unfortunately, on other days I am less rigid. On weekdays this means I might sleep in and not work out at all. On weekends I likely won’t do anything productive.

I’ve decided that the best way to make sure I’m on track each day is to set up a routine that I’ll do every morning, regardless of what day it is. I can then add items to my evening and weekend schedule as appropriate.

Here’s a rough draft of what I’m thinking:

7am-8am: Wake up, do a little reading, get dressed in workout clothes.

8am-9am: Work out, either with N or on my own.

9am-9:30am: Shower and pack lunch.

9:30am-10am: Commute.

10am-7pm: Work. Try to get in a photowalk at lunch :)

7pm-7:30pm: Commute.

7:30pm-9pm: Work on projects.

9pm-11pm: Goof off.

11pm-7am: Sleep.


  1. How do you like having a personal trainer? I’ve often thought about having one but I dunno. Anyway, good luck with your routining. Thats not a word, but I guess it will do.

  2. I really like it. I don’t have the patience or desire to become a fitness expert. I like having someone who already knows all that stuff to tell me what to do. It takes all the extra work out of it so I can just concentrate on exercising :)

    By the way, we just got your invitation in the mail! Yes, we are coming :D
