I’ve just spent the last hour reading the fascinating “my morning routine” series on the Bon Appetit blog where celebrities share their own morning routines. Of course, I was especially interested in Justin Timberlake’s routine (he’s one of my many celebrity crushes!), but I found myself reading every single post in the series. Jonathan Alder’s description of his life with Simon Doonan was particularly funny too!
As for me, I’ve recently started becoming somewhat of an early riser. I’m usually up by 6:15 on work days and up around 5:30 for the gym on days I have school. On the weekends I usually sleep in a little bit later, but not ever past 9:30 or 10.
While I’m not a huge fan of typical breakfast foods, I do try to eat something every morning. Usually it’s just a simple fruit smoothie with frozen fruit, almond milk, chia seeds and sometimes some spinach. If I get up early enough, I’ll drink my smoothie while catching up on blogs or news (sometimes Facebook..) online. Otherwise I have to chug it down while I’m getting ready. Usually I’m able to hold off on my morning coffee until I get to work, but if I’m particularly tired I’ll make some french press coffee and drink it while I get ready.
Then it’s out the door by 7:45 for work or finishing up some last minute homework before my first class of the day.
What about you? What’s your typical morning like?
