No one’s day-to-day is exactly the same, and that’s why it’s so fun to get a peek into the lives of our contributors. Today, we get an inside look into Christina Kryszan’s busy day as a mom and dentist (while still getting in a workout!). Get to know her better @Fitgirlxtina.
6:00 am: Wake up call! I turn off my alarm and set the phone down, making it a point not to scroll until I’m finished with my AM routine. I grab a water bottle, put on my favorite Fabletics set, and head down to my home gym (or outside for a run if its nice). I sometimes grab a banana with almond butter, but I don’t mind doing fasted workouts. I’m five weeks into a new workout program and here’s one of the circuits from the workout I did today.
10x shoulder press
24 shoulder taps
10x parallel press
6x wide to narrow push-ups
6:30 am – 7:00 am: Sweat it out, take a shower, eat breakfast (drink my coffee!), get ready for work, and pass the baton to our nanny before the little guy wakes up!
8:00 am – 3:00 pm: Time for work. Of course, I miss my little bubs while I’m away, but getting to create healthy and beautiful smiles is so rewarding! The highlight of my workday was creating a smile for a 13-year-old patient who had lost his four front teeth to radiation treatment when he was three-years-old.
3:30 pm – 6:00 pm: After a busy afternoon of dentistry, I come home and spend time with my little mini and our two dogs. I catch up on things around the house: tidying up, laundry, dishes, etc.
6:30 pm: Time to make dinner! Now that the weather’s changed, we’ve been grilling and experimenting with different ways to cook food we’d normally make on a stove. It’s tastier too! After dinner, we go on a family walk! Our labs have a lot of energy and need a lot of exercise; it’s a good time for my husband and I to catch up on our days.
8:00 pm: Bedtime for baby and after that I might be finishing up on blogging work. I LOVE staying busy.
9:00 pm: My husband and I will probably be watching something on Netflix. We’ve been into “The Umbrella Academy” and I can’t wait to watch “The Act” on Amazon Prime.
10:00 pm: I go through my nightly oral hygiene and skincare routine and head to sleep. I have a preeeetty early morning after all!
Thanks so much for reading about my day—I’d love to hear in the comments how you stay active!
