Morning Routine: Sans Water
Yes, I'm stoked on how fit I am now and wanted to share with you some of my morning routines as far as food and exercise. This is one morning's routine when I didn't go surfing. I'll post a surf morning routine at a later post.
Okay, so the alarm goes off at 5:00 am but I'm usually already awake and watching the news. I get up and put my workout gear on and (fortunately) don't have to leave the house because I have plenty of exercise gear at home.
65 minutes on treadmill - brisk walking speed with first 30 minutes having elevation set to 8 and and first 10 minutes as gradual warn up then final 5 minutes in gradual cool down.
30 minutes on elliptical trainer - resistance set to 10 and random program
15 minutes of stretching - core, arms, legs, neck
Okay, you should know that I am not a fan of "traditional" breakfast foods so my breakfast may look more like lunch or dinner to you.
In the juicer (I don't do caffeine either):
1 large beet
5-6 large carrots
1 large red delicious apple
1 very small piece of ginger
In the pan with olive oil:
4 gigantic freshwater shrimp or 12 jumbo sea shrimp
2 corn tortillas (cooked after the shrimp - do each side of tortilla until desired bronzing has occurred)
Sriracha, Tapatio, or homemade salsa to taste.
Put half of the shrimp inside one tortilla with half of the avocado. Top with sauce to taste. Yum!
Sweet part: 2 small "Cuties" (California Mandarins), 10 red cherries, small handful of blueberries
Plenty of water
...and no, I don't add sugar, salt, or other seasonings to anything.
*So yeah, I'm not a physician and don't claim to be an expert an anything except being a dork so follow my advice at your own risk. This is what works for me and it might not work for you. I would encourage you to find the fitness routine that is best for you.
What's your morning routine?
