My perfect “health day.” Find below the ins and outs of my day from diet & exercise to mental & spiritual. I’m nothing but thorough, but I’m not perfect either. Try your best, and look to make your own day to day life more healthy, and keep some balance.
~Meditate 10 min (Yes, even with an 18 month old, I bought ear plugs and Husband takes over. Its 10 minutes people, you can do it!)
~Face “meds” and sunscreen (I used to struggle with horrible acne until I after gave birth, but I still use a lighter version of it and aging products too)
~Stretch (baby loves to do this with, me it hilarious.)
~Vega One chocolate shake with vitamins (Shake ingredients: 1/4 cup of water, one banana, 1/4 cup of frozen berries, one scoop of Vega.) This shake gives me all my veggies I need for the day- yes I said veggies. It’s also packed with protein and all the other wonderful stuff you need.
The vitamins that I take in general are: Multivitamin (Womans ultra mega), probiotic, omega 3, chewable baby asprin (good maintenance for the heart) and a folic acid (good for second baby prep!) Taking them with the shake helps me remember and its easier with a thick drink rather than water.
~Next breakfast a few hours later: Egg with sprouted protein bread, (its quick, easy, and healthy)
~Baby’s nap time: Elliptical time, and catch up on my recorded shows simultaneously. If nap is super long, I’ll throw in some Marketing work for my business then too.
~Get sunshine. (Great mental/ emotional booster, deep breaths and warm sun. Most of the time I’m out and about with the baby at Oakland or Berkeley parks anyways but I make sure I leave the house each day, even is it a walk around the block and I’m feeling like I don’t want to leave the house.)
~ Water 100 oz (Through the day I bring my 50 oz water bottle. Fill it up twice and then I know I’m done. Great for skin, and just health in general).
~Lunch: Salad with protein for lunch OR something completely different. HAHA! (This changes. I usually like a fresh light chicken salad but sometimes its french fry day. I just swap out a heavy meal for a light one at dinner.)
~If baby naps twice, I nap too! REST.
~Baby to bed. Shower. (I do dry body brushing right before shower too. Towards the heart, great for the lymphatic system and skin.)
~Cook dinner. (We have a chef send us weekly menus and once a week we shop for all the ingredients together. They are all healthy and a huge variety. Its fun and then I know I have everything I need for the whole week already in the house. It’s great!)
~Marketing for Private Practice (Once a day for about 30 min to an hour, either now or at a long baby nap time)
~Roll my hair (Yes this is important! – for me at least. I don’t have time to look great, with hair and make up. When I can roll my hair at night and have it curly in the morning the way I like it, it’s done and I feel more beautiful and more put together- who doesn’t want that?)
~Bed by 10 pm, or earlier if hubby and I want to “snuggle!” (I love my sleep. I get about 9 to 10 hours each night.)
