6:00 AM – Wake up before Viktor and the pups to get a 45 min spin session in. My favorite part about this (when I actually do wake up) is that I barely remember it happened so it’s like, a sneaky workout before my brain is fully awake.
7:00 AM – Head back upstairs where Aubrey is eagerly waiting for me. She’s an 11 year old malamute and definitely an early riser – however the only reason she doesn’t sleep in is because she wants to get her walk in so she can have some breakfast. When I come back in from my walk with Aubrey, Norm finally gets up. He’s a 3 year old rescue mix, and in typical younger child style he slowly wakes up, stretches, and meanders down the stairs to go out.
7:30 AM – After both pups are walked, I feed them and start making breakfast for Viktor and I. Typically it’s sautéed onions + sunny side up eggs on an everything bagel for both of us.
8:00 AM – Finally start getting ready for work. This usually consists of playing some music on my record player while I do my hair and makeup.
8:30 AM – Change into work clothes, make Vik and I lattes.
8:45 AM – Head off to work.
9:00 AM – Arrive at work, go through my emails, and get ready for today’s cases. I work in a courthouse so every day is different as far as the case load, but it helps to read through them in advance.
9:30 AM – Head into court, most days it’s virtual from my desk which is great.
1:00 PM – Finally time for lunch! I have an hour lunch break so I usually head home to visit Aubrey + Norm and let them out. After I walk them, I make all three of us smoothies. For the pups I add varied cut up fruits to give their lunch an extra crunch.
2:00 PM – Back at work, and usually heading back into court for the rest of the afternoon.
5:00 PM – Back at home and so grateful for it. This is when I typically light a Candelles candle (9 times out of 10 it’s Amber and Vanilla or Sweet Vanilla, they’re my favs and just smell like home to me).
5:15 PM – Walk + feed Aubrey and Norm dinner.
5:30 PM – Head back downstairs for my second workout… that sounds like I’m overachieving but I promise it’s more like the “weight” component of my workout for the day. I only break it down into Abs, Legs, or Arms.
6:30 PM – By the time I come back upstairs the wax has pooled and the house is flooded with my favorite scent. I heat up some dinner and settle into the couch to watch Netflix and relax for a bit while I eat.
7:30 PM – Head upstairs to shower + do my skincare routine. I also bring my candle upstairs so when I get out of the shower my bedroom smells nice and fresh!
8:00 PM – Climb into bed to watch another episode or two on Netflix or read. I’ve been big into crime novels lately but sometimes I need a Netflix break in between books!
10:00 PM – Finally shut everything off, blow my candle out and head to bed (the earlier I fall asleep, the more likely I am to wake up for spin the next morning!)
