Day in the Life 9/21/16

September 21, 2016 in About Me / College

Hi guys and happy Wednesday! Half way through the week- thank God!

Also, huge huge hugeeee thank you to all of your for the love I received on my last post. Truly made me so happy and I am reminded everyday how blessed I am to have all you blogging people in my life- so thank you!! <3

Going to be doing a day in the life post today. I did one of these last year and I love reading them, so maybe it will become more of a frequent thing! Here’s what a typical Monday looks like for me 🙂

6:45 am- alarm goes off, get out of bed. Go to the bathroom and splash some cold water on my face, put on some of my acne cream, and pee. Come back, mix my Slap Nutrition BCAAS into my shaker cup. Put on my gym clothes, swish around some mouthwash, and throw on some deodorant then make the trek out to the gym!


7:15 am- start my workout. Today I warmed up with 10 min on the bike then did circuit workouts!

8:20 am- leave the gym. Head back to my dorm and shower.

9:00 am- put on real people clothes, do my skin routine, take my pills.

9:15 am- eat breakfast. This morning I had toast with dark chocolate peanut butter and a Siggi’s with an apple mixed in! I always like to read blogs while eating breakfast, so I catch up on that as well.

10:30 am- clean my room up a bit, make my bed, brush my teeth, and get myself organized.

11:00 am- fall asleep in the midst of me trying to be productive. But hey, least I got in a good nap before the start of a busy day.

12:00 pm- grab lunch at my dining hall with a friend. I got sweet potato sushi with a grapes & cheese cup!

12:45 pm- grab a coffee before my long day of classes. I got an iced coffee with a flavor shot of caramel and soy milk.

1:00 pm- Head to my science and belief class. This class goes until 2:15.

2:30 pm- Sit through my big questions and the media class. This class goes till 3:45.

3:45 pm- eat a snack. I made my own snack mix with almonds, a cacao energy bite, and Annie’s crackers. I also had a banana.

4:oo pm.- My last class of my learning community. The two classes before are interconnected, and all the material comes together in the last class. The goal of this learning community is to answer the big questions in life and dig a bit deeper into what isn’t talked about much. Our end product is going to be a class magazine! This class ends at 5:15, but we got out at 5:00 that day. (#blessed)

5:20 pm- grab dinner with my friends. I had black bean soup and a salad!


6:00 pm- last class of the day. Intro to sociology! I am thinking about adding this as a minor, so I wanted to see if I even liked sociology first lol. This class ends at 7:15.

8:00 pm- head to the library with friends. Work on my developmental psych homework.

8:45 pm- get an iced tea and eat a Bobo’s bar

9:00 pm- continue with my homework

11:45 pm- go back to my dorm

12 am- take my pill, brush my teeth, wash my face, get ready for bed.

12:30 am- sleep time! (Yes, I know I need to work on getting more sleep lol)

That’s what a somewhat typical Monday looks like for me! Monday’s and Wednesday’s are my busiest days of the week and are packed with classes, but Tuesday’s and Thursday’s I just have one class and I have no class on Friday’s. 🙂 So it all works out in the end!

Now tell me: 

Do you like BCAAS? If you do, what’s your favorite brand? (Slap Nutrition is mine!) 

Are you a fan of circuit workouts? I love them and the fact I never get bored while doing them! 

Have a happy Wednesday guys!! Sending lots of love <3

    Sweet potato sushi say WHAAAT?! I don’t like sushi but if it involved sweet potato I feel like I could be swayed. And yes, I know I’m probably the only person in the world who doesn’t like sushi but my brain just can’t deal with cold rice 😛

    I’ve never tried BCAAs or any kind of sports supps!

    More sleep seems pretty far away right now for me too! So much to do, so very little time. Science and belief class sounds so interesting! I would have loved to taken a class like that.
    Yay for iced coffee with soy milk!!

    One year I crammed all of my classes in Tuesdays and Thursdays. They were longggg days, but it was so nice always having the next day off. In college, I majored in Sociology and was just so fascinated by it. My other favorite class in that field was Anthropology. So interesting! Love these types of posts!

      I love having my Friday’s off! The long days are worth it when you have nothing to do on Friday 🙂 I loved anthropology too! Took it last year… would love to take another anthro class!!

    That class project sounds like a great idea; I would love to see a picture of the magazine when you’re done? 🙂 And you are so disciplined in getting all that work in everyday. I used to be good at working out in the morning, but no more…. 😀 I’m thankful that the Lord is sustaining you and that you have so much joy in the process. I hope today is another blessed day! Where are you going to school Lyss?

      same here! I love how circuits work your whole body too!

    I love day in the life posts! I cannot believe that you have a class that starts at 6pm, though! That is intense! I have never had an evening class and hope I never do, haha… especially one right after dinner. I just totally snooze through any class when I eat right beforehand 😛

      Night classes are a new experience for me! I used to have all early classes last year. I do love having the mornings to get stuff done though!

  • Reply Ellie Pell September 22, 2016 at 12:37 am

    I don’t think I’ve ever had either, BCAAs or done a circuit workout =P I’ve read about BCAAs and find them interesting. Do you think they help you recover faster?

      I do think they help you recover faster! I notice a difference 🙂

  • Reply Megan Hallier September 22, 2016 at 8:46 am

    Woah that’s such a long day. It’s funny cause I tend to cram more stuff into my mornings whereas you slot it in at night. I’m so the complete opposite of a ‘typical’ student. I’m more like a typical grandma lol.

      I love mornings to get all my stuff done. By the end of the day though I’m exhausted!

  • Reply kat September 22, 2016 at 12:36 pm

    As I sit here barely able to feel my legs thanks to yesterday’s leg workout, I am seriously wishing that I had some BCAAs! I used to take them but haven’t bought anymore since my last one ran out. That flavor sounds amazing – and I’ve heard so many positive reviews about that brand!

      I love my BCAAS! Slap nutrition is such a great brand- would definitely recommend!!!

  • Reply Liv @ Healthy Liv September 22, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    So interesting that all of your classes are later n the day! Do you like it that way? I love getting my classes done in the morning/early afternoon (as long as I have no 8 A.M.s!) but I have friends that are totally the opposite!

      I do in a way! I love the mornings for homework and getting things done, but sometimes at night I’m so tired!

    Your classes sound really interesting! What’s your major? I love circuit workouts – i Need constant switch ups!
