I just came home from another CrossFit workout – feels so great afterwards! Now I thought it would be fun for you guys to get to know how an ordinary school day looks like for me. I think it can give you a better insight on how it’s like to get together both school and my workouts.
# Waking up. I usually start my school days at 8:15 am. So I (try to) wake up at 6:40 am so that I don’t need to rush in the mornings. I start with taking a quick shower. I boil some eggs while I am getting ready with hair and a light make up. Then I prepare some oatmeal or quark and eat my breakfast by the TV watching the morning news. At about half past seven, I get very stressed if I haven’t prepared my clothing and packing. I try to prepare my outfit for school and pack workout clothes the day before, but usually I don’t have time for that. At 8 am I meet up with my classmate and neighbour.
Sometimes I actually set my alarm on 6:30, just to look at my phone before I get up, haha..
Here I had some extra time to spend on my breakfast as you see.
# School. Right now I have very short scheduled days at school, but instead I have alot of essays to write on my spare time. So I usually stay in school until twelwe, and work out immediatly after lunch since my gym is in the same building as my school.
# Workout. Each workout is about 60-90 minutes long. I always end my workout with a protein shake before taking my bike home. I can bike home in like 5 minutes, so I am so thankful that I live so close to the school.
# Home. If I workout after lunch, I am usually home at 3 pm. Then I prepare dinner and make lunch boxes. When I have alot to do in school, like right now when I am studying three courses at the same time, I usually do something easy like chicken made in oven, rice and vegetables. It is food that is quick to make and you get many lunch boxes. This food is also very good if you work out shortly after lunch like I do.
Tierd but happy girl after both school and gym.
# Studying. When I am done with my food prepping it is time to continue with the studying. Since this is my last year, the level is much higher. I am not used to writing scientific reports and essays, so I really have to spend much time on the studies right now. That is why I am not as active on Instagram as I have been before. I always priority school and I try to make as much as possible during the week, so that I have my weekends (well almost) free.
Haha found this among my images. From a course called Production systems.
# Quality time. I put down the studies at 8 pm, then I have my own time for whatever I want to do. I end the days with a delicious night meal (I love casein pudding so much!) by the TV. I also check my emails, blog and Instagram.
This is pretty much how my days look like right now. I don’t know what you think about it, but I actually enjoy it even though my studies take alot of time and effort right now. I am so lucky that I still can work out as often as I do and get energy from that. I’m so happy that this is my last year as an engineering student :-).
(And since my boyfriend has moved to our home city, where he has began to study, I have not the dog here with me. Otherwise my days would have been very different :-)).
One of my favorite quotes that I always try to live according to.
