My typical week working full time, daily blogging, going to the gym and doing a relationship

how to blog daily

I know a lot of people who struggle to work full time and blog. Let alone work full time and blog every day. And go to the gym. And have a relationship.

I’ve been blogging daily for almost three years now and wanted to share what my typical week looks like.

Of course, my weeks do sometimes vary. Sometimes I work different hours. Sometimes my days off change. Sometimes I see my boyfriend during the week. Sometimes I sacrifice my Tuesday morning workout so I can write a few extra posts before work if I know I’m going to be busier than normal or if I have extra social plans.

But typically, this is my week:

What I’ve achieved:

  • Around 10 blog posts.
  • Around 4 workouts.
  • Working full time.
  • Spending 2 nights and a full day with my boyfriend.
  • Keeping my flat clean.
  • Eating well.

I would say my key is to get your staple routine in place and work around it if anything changes. Like I know there might be times I work a 1:00 pm – 10:00 pm on a Saturday – so I can use the morning to write posts or go to the gym. If I have social plans, I know I need to cut something out that I’ll need to make up somewhere else so I’ll sacrifice gym time or TV time. Blogging is important, so I’ll never sacrifice a blog post.

I have my week planned out already so I know what I’ll be doing when.

Although it took a few years to get into this routine, I find it’s really do-able and I get a lot of satisfaction out of cramming everything in that I cram in. Of course, it would be wondeful to have more TV time, but not very satisfying!

What does your week look like?
