5:30 am I wake up, 7:00 am I’m at work, 4:00 pm I hit the gym, 5:00 pm I swim… and repeat. Every time I go to bed I do a recount of what my day was like and what I have planned for the next day. I know my main responsibilities are work and training so I make sure I plan my day accordingly to be able to do both things to the best of my abilities. Does it always work perfectly? Absolutely not. 

My work requires me to be in meetings at least a couple of days a week, so my schedule has to be flexible. Some days I have to workout early in the morning. The only way to accomplish everything is to plan ahead. For me, a planner is my best tool when mapping out my week. The idea is to sit down and plan, making sure you cover everything you need to do during the week and give yourself ample time and be sure to prioritize.

When my friends come to me and ask me how I do it to workout everyday, I tell them that even if I need to get up at 5:30 am to workout, I just do it. There is not better feeling that knowing that you are covering all the bases of your life including a social life, which is also very important! So, don’t make excuses and get to it. If you really want it… just do it!
