My Day, Wednesday Addition
8am Rise and shine (and groan because I spent hours tossing and turning last night before finally falling asleep).
8-9am Coffee, oats, eggs, grade papers, plan classes, do dishes, get dressed.
9am Off to the clinic. Work technically starts at 8 but if we don’t have any appointments booked first thing we sometimes come in a little later. Sadly we have to drive the 1.5 miles instead of bike these days so that I can go teach my college class just outside of town.
9-11am Answer the phone, greet patients, check them in and out, do some basic accounting, tidy up, attempt to wrangle some insurance information over the phone, read a few blogs.
11am Run out of the office to go teach.
11:30-1pm Teach Introduction to Modern Dance to 14 college kids.
1:15pm Dash home for lunch and shower.
2:30pm Back to the office for a busy afternoon full of patients, this time by bike!
5:30pm Finish up my clinic work, change my clothes in the bathroom, and jog upstairs to teach mat Pilates in my studio. I love this class, it’s small and fun and the students are really appreciative and up for anything!
6:30pm Lock the studio up, ride my bike to the gym, ACAC. It usually rains on Wednesday evening, I got completely soaked last week and I’m really hoping to stay dry tonight.
7-8pm Teach Modern Dance Technique at ACAC. I love this class too, the students are quick learners and beautiful dancers!
8:15pm A 5 minute ride home for dinner and crashing out on the couch for an hour or so before bed.
10pm In bed to read for 20-30 minutes before lights off. I am reading a very mediocre book called The Wierd Sisters right now, it’s a good in-bed book but definitely not a can’t-put-it-down read.

Yours sounds much busier!
Thanks for sharing, it’s fun to see someone’s schedule! Our days definitely have some similarities! What kind of classes do you teach? Wednesdays are my busiest day right now, especially when we have to be at the office at 8!
Your day is wonderfully organized and full of productivity! I would love to try Pilates – wish I lived in Charlottesville so I could attend your class 🙂 Surely there are plenty of classes in Portland, but I am frustratingly shy.
Since I am essentially unemployed at the moment, my Wednesday is packed with cleaning, errands, organizing, workouts, cooking/baking, and editing my vegan cookzine. Perhaps not terribly exciting, but still productive!
Pilates is awesome and I wish you could come to my classes too! I used to teach at Yoga Pearl but they are obviously more of a yoga studio than a Pilates studio. You may want to look into videos to get you started if a class sounds intimidating or unattractive to you. The website Pilates Anytime has loads of offerings, including some great beginner classes. You have to pay a monthly fee but I believe you get a trial week or two and really the cost of a month is about the same as one live class. Remember, Pilates is very specific and so it is important to start with the basics, even if it feels a little slow at first. Enjoy!
Have weekend plans?
