I thought It would be fun to share my morning routine. I am always inspired by seeing others routines and how they incorporate wellness, health and fitness, etc into their daily lives.
6:10 | alarm goes off. I allow myself to snooze one time if needed. But I am always out of bed by 6:20. As soon as I get out of bed I go wake the kids up for school but 9 times out of 10 they are up before me. The night before I make them lay out their outfits for that day so there is no discussion about it that morning. They get changed while I change into my workout clothes.
6:30-7 | I feed the kid’s a quick breakfast, usually they are not super hungry so it is something easy like a banana, yogurt, or a cereal bar. Meanwhile I make my hot water with lemon. I drink this first thing every morning. I think it is a good start for your body for the day. It helps promote hydration in the morning, helps your skin, is a good source vitamin C and helps with digestion.
I also fill up the kid’s water bottles and make sure book bags are ready. This year I decided to make them eat a school lunch everyday and it saves so much hassle and time not thinking of what to pack for their lunches. 6:55 we walk out the door to head to school.
7:00 | drop the kids at school. They like me to park and walk them up to school, which I do because I know one day they will not want me to anymore!
7:30-8:30 | I workout with my trainer 3 days a week and the other 2 days I try and do one of her cardio classes that she teaches. I do a warm up on the bike and then we typically do a whole body day, a legs day and an arm day with a little cardio mixed in. I love having this appointment. It holds me accountable for exercising and it is an appointment on my calendar that I won’t skip.
8:30-9:30 |I get back home from the gym, and make a cup of coffee typically black unless I splurge for a honey latte. This is when I typically have coffee, a wheatgrass or lemon ginger shot, my liquid collagen, and green juice if I have made a batch. During this time I also work on my to-do list for the day and emails. I typically listen to a podcast during this time. I love to listen to inspiring podcasts to motivate me.
I have been trying to get back into drinking green juice, it just makes me feel better but I don’t have it everyday. I typically juice kale, spinach, apples, ginger, celery, cucumber, mint and jalapeño if I have it on hand.
I have been taking the Modere collagen for a few months now and really like it. I feel like it has helped not only my hair and nails but skin as well. I do 2 tablespoons a day. If you want to try the Modern Collagen you can use code 3689982- they have lots of other products I have heard are great but the collagen is all I have tried. I actually prefer this liquid version to the powder it is much easier and actually tastes good.
I thrive on staying organized so I typically have 2 to-do lists going in addition to a monthly calendar as well.
9:30-10:30 | Shower. I don’t have a big skin care routine in the morning but I typically exfoliate my face while I shower. Currently I am loving this Colleen Rothschild Micro mineral scrub.
10:30-12 | I work on my blog and usually prep lunch as well. I love creating healthy lunches, that is my happy place. I also take take my 8 greens vitamins, Equilibria CBD capsules, and Daily Ritual vitamins. I have other supplements I take later in the day as well but I love to start my day with those three. The Equilibria Capsules help mellow me out, the 8 Greens give me so many greens, and Ritual has been my multivitamin of choice for over a year now (favorite one I have tried)
I will try and do a part two with the second part of my day if this is something you all enjoyed reading!
