So here’s a peak into what I’ve planned for my day and night health/wellness routines for 2018:
Train around 5:30 am
As soon as I get home, I have my bulletproof coffee.
Then I have my ashwaganda with Trader Joe’s apple juice – it has the cleanest ingredients I’ve been able to find in a juice. I’m going to a do a whole post about ashwaganda but I take it to combat stress, which can kill you like a disease (dramatic I know but it’s terrible for you). I was pretty convinced after I read here that people were over 30% less stressed after taking it for 60 days.
Before I leave for work, I have a smoothie with Raw Organic Protein + Collagen Peptides + Bee Pollen – recipe to come next week!
And I take a Probiotic + Krill Oil + L-Lysine + Vitamin D3. I will do a separate post on the benefits of all of these!
ACV after dinner/ before bed – it really helps everything digest at the end of the day and keeps me from feeling too full when I go to bed. Other benefits here. I also mix this with a little bit of Trader Joe’s apple juice to mask the harshness of it.
Eat + Train
I’m trying to utilize the theme of “eat + train” this year, which I got from Tools of Titans. This is how I’m looking at food and working out this year – no more diets and “having to go to the gym.” I’m treating food as nourishment and medicine and working out as training. Food is the reason your body feels the way it feels, bad or good. But especially bad. On days that my energy levels are low and just feel off, it is 90% of the time due to the fact that I ate some sort of crap that day.
I also really want to run a quarter marathon in April – this is where training comes into play. I personally work so much harder when I have a concrete goal or something I’m working towards. There’s no better feeling than when something you worked so hard for pays off!
