I’m a busy full-time master’s student, traveler, part-time link builder, blogger and a girlfriend so my days are very busy. However, somehow I manage to do everything I have to do and… I still have 40-50 minutes a day to do my workout, cook delicious meals and hang out with friends. In today’s post I am going to show you how my regular day looks like. It’s of course only an example and my meals, workout routine and activities keep changing and depend on my work and uni schedule.

6:30 – Wake up, a glass of hot water with lemon, quick shower

7:00 – Breakfast time


When I am in a rush, I make a quick smoothie (banana + handful of spinach, almond milk or yogurt). If I have more time, I make my favourite porridge or semolina with nuts, chocolate nibs and fruits.

7:30 – Cycling to work or going to uni

10:00 – Having a snack


I usually have a fruit smoothie, a handful of nuts, chopped veggies with hummus or yogurt with fruits.

13:00 – Lunch 


I usually have a lunch at work or at uni. I carry lunch boxes with me and warm my meals up in a microwave. My favourite lunch is smoked fish + steamed veggies + brown pasta/ couscous or brown rice.

16:00 –Having my pre-workout meat 


Protein pancakes, peanut butter and banana sandwich

18:00 – Back from school/ uni

18:15 – Workout 


I usually workout every 2 days. It takes me 40-50 minutes to complete one of online videos with Insanity training. Sometimes I feel like jogging so I jog for 1 hour or less depending on my mood.

I love to have my gym equipment neat and organised, for me it provides me with a workout motivation boost so I highly recommend allocating some space for home gym storage, so you are always ready for the next home workout.

 19:00 – Dinner (post-workout meal)


Brown bread with veggies and a piece of fish – that is usually my dinner. I also have cottage cheese with salad and brown rice, tuna salad with couscous or Greek salad with jacked potatoes.

19:00 – Study, blog

21:00 – Meal prep

I prepare my meal in the evening – breakfast, 2 snacks, lunch and dinner. I put my food in plastic boxes and store them in the fridge. Once I wake up, I pack them and I’m off to go to work/uni.

22:00 – Shower, book, blogging

24:00 – Going to sleep

What is your day like?

There is a great range of tips to get more sleep!

  1. Oh I love these types of posts! It’s great to see that even with a super busy schedule you still have time to eat healthy and workout! One of my daily workout goals is to get 10K steps a day, minimum–so I end up walking most places I go. I have to factor in extra time, but always feel better at the end of the day knowing at least I got 5 miles in!

  2. Wow you are incredibly organised. I wish I could say I fit in exercising, healthy meals, work and blogging every day, but in reality cycling to work and avoiding the biscuit tin is a good day for me !! Love reading about your healthy lifestyle (y).

    • Alex, try to prepare your meals a night before and you will see how quick it is to make 3 meals and 2 snacks – less than 30 in most cases :)!!
