Tegan Haining Workout: The morning routine I swear by to set me up for a great day.

My morning routine is my everything, a good morning routine will set you up for a great day, keeping you energised, focused and that feeling of accomplishment. With everything that is going on at the moment, I find that my routine is even more important, as it can be easy to fall off the bandwagon.
I am currently waking up at around 7 am and the first thing I like to do is drink 2 glasses of water to rehydrate my body and then my Chinese herbs which come as a tea which improve my blood circulation and immunity.
I then like to move my body and at the moment I am doing Fluidform At Home Pilates, which I will do before breakfast, as I like to work out on an empty stomach.
The workouts are short but you can string a few of them together to make them as long as you like. Pilates is excellent to achieve and maintain a strong foundation for when you’re ready to hit the gym again.
9 am hits, and I then like to make my breakfast, 90% of the time it is eggs, I love eggs, they keep me full all morning and it is so much you can do with them.
My current favourite is:
2 eggs fried in coconut oil
W/ avocado & tomato on 1 slice toasted sourdough
Once I have breakfast I will finish it off with a cup of BeforeYouSpeak Coffee. For those who haven’t yet had it, do yourself a favour and try it! It’s loaded, with ingredients such as MCT oil, turmeric, black pepper and Siberian ginseng, this blend of coffee has added benefits like anti-inflammatory properties. I find drinking this keeps my mind focused on the tasks I need to do and my sugar cravings to a bare minimum.
By this point I am ready to tackle the day, so I will then look at my diary, and see what I have on and write down my to-do list for the day.
