Earlier this year, I shared a typical day in my summer life. Now that back-to-school is nearly upon us, and I begin teaching public relations at the Newhouse School again, my thoughts are turning to my fall schedule. As promised, it’s below. Now, keep in mind some evenings are a bit more hectic when there are swim lessons, saxophone lesson or Daisy Scouts. Then, we just do our best to get to the activities and back home for the evening routine as efficiently as possible. During those activities, I do get in some grading, at least!
Leave for gym with pre-workout shot
Workout – drink BCAAs during workout. Right now, I’m doing the Train with Lyzabeth workout series.

Read to Christopher and get him into bed
Read to Lucia and get her into bed
Head to the couch with my cross-stitching, book, phone and wine. This is also my time with Maria. I also fill out my workout/food log and review the next day’s workout. When needed, I grade papers or course prep but I try to leave that for the weekend.
Maria goes to bed.
9:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Hang out with my husband (lots of times I fall asleep WAY before now, though. 5:05 a.m. comes early!)
