The LA Way

Don’t forget to enter the sunglasses giveaway!! You have until tomorrow to enter!

I always love reading other people’s “Day in the Life” posts, so I thought I’d do my own.

My life is busy. I have 2-3 jobs, a workout schedule, and a boyfriend. I try to have a social life too, but lately it’s mostly in the form of workout dates.

So you may be wondering why I have multiple jobs and what I do. To answer the first question, the simple answer is: I like it that way. I get bored easily, don't like to do the same thing for too long, and need to keep my mind overstimulated. It is what suits me best and there will likely never be a time when I have only one job. It's not for me to do the 40 hr work week with the same schedule day in and day out. Instead, I work all day (but doing it on my own schedule)! 🙂

Job 1: I’ve worked for Iron Gym for two years. I started out as a front desk gal when I moved to LA, but after about a year, took on a bigger role. I don’t know my title, as I’m somewhat of a utility there, but in short, I am the front desk manager, client account manager, customer service rep, and everything in between. I work when I want to, so long as my tasks are done in a timely fashion.

Job 2: I am the office manager and personal/family assistant to a celebrity. (Sorry, can’t say who for privacy purposes.) It is an extremely demanding and time consuming job, but I get to go to work in workout clothes and somewhat have my own schedule there (although I’m the typical LA assistant with a blackberry, iPhone, and iPad on me at all times. No, I’m not exaggerating.) I love it, love the family, and love the fast pace.

Job 3: I am launching my own business soon. Details will be revealed once my website is up. That should be by the end of the weekend!

On to my day!

8:30am: I roll out of bed, brush my teeth, throw on my workout clothes, blend a green smoothie and head to the gym to get a little bit of work done.

10:30am: I take a break from e-mails and get a 30 minute cardio session or a weights session in (depending on the day and how/what I’m feeling like)

11:15am: Get a bit more work done at the gym, head home to shower and eat a protein bar, and head out to job #2

12:30pm: LUNCHHHH

1pm-5pm: Work away at my 2nd job. This includes but is not limited to scheduling, ordering needed items, researching items for my boss, arranging airfare, etc. Every day is different. 🙂

5:30pm: Head back to the gym. I usually do a second workout that is entirely different from what I did in the morning. It ranges from weight training to plyometrics to steady cardio and even to my beloved Hip Hop Dance class.

7pm: Head upstairs to the gym office and do some more work. I stuff Quest Peanut Butter Cups down until I can make dinner.

10 or 11pm: I call it quittin’ time! I usually make dinner for myself or with my boyfriend. We tend to go for chicken, bell peppers, onions, and some brown rice or black beans. Our go to meal that never fails.

In between all of this, I am working on my personal business and working part time as an assistant to another executive. I don’t ever stop during the day, but I guess that’s what I like. I am happy at my jobs and wouldn’t trade them in for anything. The only thing I really need to work on is getting more SLEEP!!!

Well, there you have it. The LA way of life…
