A Typical Day

Some clients asked what a “normal” day looks like for me. There isn’t one, as life is dictated by the ebb and flow of my client load (as I mentioned here).

However, I’ll give it a shot.

Day 1

  • 5am: Wake up, cool shower, coffee.
  • 6 or 6:30am: First client. Lots of moving around throughout the day. Take the dog on a short walk in the middle of the day.
  • 1:30pm: BBS-style workout. ~Ten minute effort, total body.
  • 3pm: Last client. Clean up gym and head home.
  • 3:30ish (sometimes a little later): eat first meal — mostly whole, real food, typically sweet potato hash, a cup of greek yogurt with honey & vanilla, almonds, 3 eggs with half an avocado, and an apple or banana.
  • Late afternoon: prepare dinner for family while also on daddy duty playing and watching the kids.
  • 5:30-6pm: Dinner
  • 7pm: bedtime for the kids, followed by a big bowl of blueberries and coconut milk
  • 7:30-10pm: Quiet time with Sarah, reconnecting, winding down.
  • 10pm: Sleep

 

Day 2:

  • 5am: Wake up, cool shower, coffee.
  • 6 or 6:30am: First client. Lots of moving around throughout the day. Take the dog on a short walk in the middle of the day.
  • 12 Noon: sometimes (though rarely) I eat lunch with a friend — I never place fasting before friends.
  • 5pm, or later: Eat — I’ll probably eat lightly, because lunch.
  • After meal: Daddy duty, baths, reading, bedtime for kiddos.
  • 7:30pm: Blueberries and coconut milk, or popcorn. Sometimes wine or beer. Sometimes a half shot.
  • 9pm: Wim Hof Breathing followed by 10 minute cold bath.
  • 10pm, sometimes earlier, sometimes later: sleep

Day 3 (typically Thursday)

  • 5am: Wake up, cool shower, coffee.
  • 6 or 6:30am: First client. Lots of moving around throughout the day. Take the dog on a short walk in the middle of the day.
  • 4pm-ish: 5 minute treadmill sprint workout (30 on/30 off), followed by a 15 minute hot bath. Break the fast.
  • 4:30pm: Daddy duty, dinner, play.
  • 8 or 9pm: last meal — sometimes 3 eggs with avocado and sriracha.
  • 10pm: Sleep

Saturday: 3.5 mile trail run pushing the boys in a double BOB (fasted, natch’), which takes ~30 minutes at a conversational pace until the final push. Followed by swimming in Deep Eddy and all sorts of other daddy duty. If I’m lucky, I get to nap.

Total exercise time invested: 45 minutes/week.
