Health and fitness is ALL about routine. The sooner you learn that, the better off you’ll be. Fact.
Since this blog is all about getting people on the right health and fitness track, we need transparency. So I thought I’d kick things off with revealing my daily routine, in terms of health and exercise. And remember, I work a full time job.
7am: wake-up time. For breakfast: black coffee, two scrambled eggs, black beans, spinach. Nutritious, delicious, filling meal to start my day. I’m ready to rock.
745am: out the door for my morning run. This is more a warm-up than anything, usually just 2 miles. It’s to work up a good sweat, get the blood flowing for my day.
9am: arrive at the office.
1030am: morning snack time. Usually an apple with peanut butter. Yum.
1230pm: lunch time. I’m a salad guy, so I typically get a huge bowl of greens, and then top it with all of my favorite things. Grilled chicken, black beans, chickpeas, peppers, feta cheese, and some nice olive oil dressing.
3pm: afternoon snack time! I’m a big meat and cheese roll-up guy; so some honey turkey with provolone will typically do the trick.
6pm: gym session. I usually work out for an hour or so. You don’t need to be one of those people who hang out for the gym for 2+ hours, looking at yourself in the mirror, talking everyone’s ear off, wandering around. Get in your workout, and get the hell out. I do chest, arms, shoulder, back, and rotate every other day.
730: I get home, and prepare dinner. Usually a protein — fish, beef, chicken — paired with a vegetable and a salad.
After dinner, I’m wiped. I’ll usually top off the night with a glass of red wine or bourbon, and then call it a night come 10pm.
