I am constantly trying to come up with a daily routine that works for my family and I, but with summer in full force, it can be tough.
I have found that it works best for us to have a consistent plan for the mornings and evenings and to leave our afternoons open.
Something that always helps me is to make a list of everything I need to get done for the week and then separate what task I’m going to do for each day of the week.
Meal prepping has also become a huge time saver. On Sunday, I spend about 2 hours making most of our meals for the week, that way I can enjoy the rest of my time with my family.
The last piece of advice I have is to stick with a routine that works best for you. You might need to make a few adjustments here and there, but once you get it down pat, stick to it.

- 6am – wake up and drink my lemon water, go over my to-do list, answer emails
- 6:30am – workout
- 8am – breakfast, get kids ready for the day, pack lunches for going out
- 9am – spend a few minutes cleaning up the house
- 10am – hit the pool/park
- 12pm – lunch
- 1-4pm – This varies everyday. Usually I’m getting work done while the boys play outside or ride bikes.
- 4:30pm – get dinner going
- 5pm – eat dinner
- 6pm – teach my fitness class
- 8pm/9pm – put kids to bed
- 9pm – work/study
- 10:30pm – Bed!
This is just a basic guide of what our days have been like, but a few things that stay consistent are my morning gym sesh, our morning routine, and our night routine.
It’s so important for me to get in a workout in the morning, because it gets me energized for the rest of the day and helps me start my day on a positive note.
Sometime I don’t have time to make it to the gym, so I do a few at-home workouts to get my heart rate going!
