A daily breakdown of my workout schedule – the programs and apps I use, and how I stay motivated and in a good habit to exercise everyday.
My weekly workout schedule
I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my exercise routine and schedule, and although it’s always shifting a little bit, I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing the last few months.
My weight lifting schedule
Monday: Leg Day
Wednesday: Arm Day
Friday: Abs Day
I’ve been using the Sweat app for weight lifting, strength training, and toning for the last four years. It’s not for everyone, but I love it and have been super happy with the results. I’ve written a few posts about this app – you can check them out below!

I do the BBG program, and am currently on BBG 3.0 (I think it goes up to 8.0). I’ve done the entire program twice — this is my third time through. There are lots of other programs within the app, but I love BBG cause it uses the smaller equipment I have (I don’t have big gym machines), it’s only 28 minutes, and it’s super effective. Read the posts above if you have more questions about the program!
My running schedule
Typically I run three days per week – Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Tuesday: 3-5 miles
Thursday: 3-5 miles
Saturday: 5-6 miles
During the summer, when our schedule is much more flexible, I’m running everyday on top of my BBG workouts. During the school year, I’m up at 6:00am to run before school drop off, so I run inside on my treadmill where it’s warm and safer for me to run when it’s pitch black outside.
I use the Map My Run app when I run outside, and I love it to track my pace and my mileage.
My biggest advice to getting in a good routine with exercising
People ask all the time how I got in a good routine of exercising, and here’s my secret. Do it everyday. Do something everyday.
I used to say, “I’ll exercise 3 times a week.” But then I’d just continually push my workouts off a day until the week was through and I definitely hadn’t done three workouts.
Instead, set aside 15 minutes everyday to do something. Stretching, a youtube video, running up and down your stairs, jumping jacks, a walk or a run around your block…whatever works for you. But do it everyday. That’s what builds a habit!
