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, but that is a practiced skill.

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.

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!

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 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?
