My AM routine has been the same for a few years now.

I start every morning off with an affirmation for the day, set my intentions and take a deep breath.

Affirmation

Then I head into the kitchen and heat up some warm water, squeeze an organic lemon inside and continue organizing my day. Once this is enjoyed, I head back into the kitchen for my main squeeze ACV, then back into my room to dry brush to start up my circulation. Most recently I have been adding my slim shot, details on that another day, and start to prepare my breakfast. Depending on my planned activity I either have overnight quinoa (recipe found here), egg white pancakes, or straight egg whites with some veggies on the side. Writing this all out makes me feel a bit like a crazy lady, but it really does not take as long as it sounds…promise.

Within all of this AM madness, I am getting ready, washing my face while breakfast cooks, preparing playlists for my group class, and answering emails.

Set your morning up for a successful day!

This routine was my dealio everyday for years, yes even on vaca. When I moved to Bangkok, I knew I would be in my routine as for me it is just like brushing my teeth. The problem was lemons especially organic lemons rounded out to almost $1.50 USD a piece. Back in the states, I could get a weeks worth of lemons for that. Limes in Thailand are like pennies compared to lemons, which I find odd as they take the same amount of effort to grow. I had to do some research to find out if lemons contained the same properties as limes.

After a few google searches I came to find that limes and lemons are pretty much the same damn thing. Thank goodness because my bank account was starting to cry whenever I walked into the store to buy lemons.
