Hey friends! I’m rushing around today – I’m officially back to work until Thursday, and man – things are crazy. My email is overflowing, I have a backlog of freelance projects, my book is begging to be attended to… Ouch.
However, I did make time to go to Y2Yoga for the always soul-crushing Superflow class. It was one of the hardest Superflows in recent memory! 90 minutes of one million and one push ups and side planks. But I left feeling refreshed and calm.

And 1/2 an apple and 1/2 a pear:
So, earlier today I was thinking about my work schedule. It’s kind of weird to me that I consider Healthy Tipping Point a “job” because it started out as my personal blog, but it has become a job for me (here’s my blogging tips). I also consider Operation Beautiful / writing the second OB book the other half of my job, plus there’s freelance writing and working as the secretary at the clinic.
Here’s what a typical day looks like for me:
- 7:30 AM: Wake up
- 8:30 – 11:00 AM: Work
- 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM: Exercise
- 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM: Lunch break
- 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM: Work / Go into the clinic
- 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM: Dinner break
- 8:00 PM – ??: Work / Stare at the television / read a book
On the weekends, I work about 5 hours a day usually.
When I worked as an urban planner, I woke up at 6 AM and would work out before work. I’d work from 8 AM to 6 PM, and then I would have the whole evening off. I worked 10 hours a day because they gave me every Friday off per a flexible work schedule (instead of 5 8-hour days).
What is your work schedule like? If you could create your schedule, when would you work and exercise? Do you work in an environment that allows flexible work schedules?
