I slowly changed my morning routine, which is still evolving each week or every couple of weeks. Currently I wake up at 6:30am throw my workout clothes on, drive to a Pure Barre class while listening to my favorite podcast Women in Retail Talks, take a 50min barre class. Most days I take the classic class then three times a week I take a cardio class.
After class I pick up my coffee and green juice unless I purchase it at Wholefoods beforehand during my grocery shopping. Once I am home I change out my workout clothes and get ready to start my day. My goals are to add time to mediate and journal as well as drink more lemon water in the morning!
