My Healthy Morning Routine

My morning routine is sacred!

In college I started waking up early so I could have some time before class to relax and restore for the day ahead. This routine really stuck!

I feel so bright and clear minded in the morning, so I take extra time to utilize those moments wisely. I’m pretty good at utilizing my time efficiently, if I do say so myself.

I know some of you might be thinking, ‘Wow this chick is insane for waking up earlier than necessary!’ But, I like to start my day with the right intentions so the rest of the day will follow suit.

You set the pace and mood for the day in the morning!

On the weekends I let myself sleep in, so I’ll let you in on my week day morning routine.

Here are the deets:

5:45 a.m. My alarm goes off and I groan. Then I get my butt up, brush my teeth, change and drive to my morning workout. Depending on the day that’s spin or weight training.

A good tip is to put out your workout clothes the night before because at 5:45 a.m. there can be so many excuses not to get up and go.

*I usually take Friday’s off or take a walk before work. This past Friday I used my working walk to the grocery store and get some spinach for my smoothie, productivity at it’s finest, ladies!

6:50 a.m. Get back home to shower. During this time I get ready and drink my warm lemon water. All while listening to some bomb podcasts. (I’m obsessed)

7:30 a.m. Food time, best time! I pack my lunch & snacks for the day and refuel with a post workout #Fab4Smoothie (I’ll post my perfected recipe soon) and a coffee.

I also take my supplements! I have them in a little old lady pill jar with the days of the week and all…Don’t judge!!

These are just what I take, so keep that in mind.

Biotin: Healthy hair, skin, nails

Probiotic: All about that gut health, baby!

Multivitamin: Just because you know, I’m so #health

Digestive Enzymes: Help the body break down food properly. Gut health is the key to life!

I usually eat and chug my coffee while watching some YouTube videos.

7:50 a.m. Time to get a little work done and write out my to-do list for the day.  Hello Type A once again. If I don’t write things down, it’s like they never existed in my memory…So I’m big on lists.

8:10 a.m. Say goodbye to Patrick, who is usually still sleeping in bed, and head off to work!

I’m obsessed with my morning routine because I get so much done before most people are even up! That accomplishment fuels the rest of my day.

What’s your morning routine like?
