My morning routine actually starts the night before. You read that right: the night before. I lay my workout clothes out the night before so I literally don't have to think about what to put on for my workouts.
After I go to the bathroom and turn off my alarm, I head to the kitchen to drink 16 - 32 oz of water. This wakes up my system in the morning and gets my body going, if you know what I mean. LOL
I digress...after hydrating I do my workout. I change up my workout every day - from weights, yoga, pilates, active living, to walking/running outside. I'm currently in the last week of LIIT and I'm feeling the burn!
I'm ready for my hydration after my workout. So more water is definitely happening, but this is also when I make an Ultimate Elixir for both me and my husband. It's the evolution of the multivitamin and we have both been taking it for 2 years. My husband has mentioned (multiple times) that he hasn't been sick in a long time....coincidence?! ...
You can't out supplement a bad diet. So make sure you're eating a predominately plant based diet.
Have you noticed something I have not had yet? If you thought coffee, you're my kind of girl. Coffee is next on my agenda and I always make it with one scoop of Ultimate Shrooms. If you know me well, you know that I'm obsessed with mushrooms. I eat them regularly, and I always have at least one scoop of these fruiting body 'shrooms - in my coffee or in a smoothie - that are so good for my body.
Mushrooms have adaptogens in them, which help our body fight extreme conditions (hello, stress!). So, I'm all for adding some super foods to my diet to keep my body working optimally.
It's getting close to 8:30 AM by now, which means it's time for me to log on to my women's meeting. I seriously love this meeting. It's when I get my daily dose of gratitude, hope, and a swift kick in my arse when I need one.
After my meeting is when I finally make myself breakfast. It varies most days, but I've been slightly obsessed with a version of our blondies that are in our week 4 Plant Plates recipe eBook in LIIT. They are sooooo delish!!
I take my Love Complement multi-vitamin with breakfast. If you are eating a plant based diet, or if you are over 50, I recommend this supplement. It has Vitamin B 12 in it, which you will need. It also has the fat soluble Vitamins K2 and D3 in it, so I take it with breakfast because the fat in my breakfast will help absorb those vitamins. If you want to try these vitamins, use code plantchics to save some money.

I hope this is helpful for you!
