Waking Up in the Snow White Tower
Positive energy, daily runs, plyometrics, fresh juices and weekly B12 shots
Name: Kristin Reiter
Current Location: Portland, OR
6:00 a.m. My alarm goes off. Time set aside (while still in theta) for conscious intending. I thank the universe and start to vision out how my day will go. Positive energy, creative freedom, lightness….
6:30 a.m. My alarm goes off again and I start cursing.
6:35 a.m. (after the snooze alarm goes off) I start checking my emails.
7:00 a.m. Morning stretch before a 30 minute run—in addition I do a few plyometrics and some balance training. My entire run is focused internally. I’ve found that I don’t listen to my body during the day, so it is a time to pay attention to anything that is feeling off and/or hurting. I believe that we are all responsible for our own health and well-being, so I guess you could relate this time to a “check-up,” or better yet a “check-in.”
7:30 a.m. PILLS ARE GOOD! As I’ve sort of lead into, my “body as a machine” is a fascinating subject for me. Years of research have lead me to a strict diet as well as a custom supplement plan. I take a lot of supplements, some of which include CoQ10, Resveratrol, Vitamin B, Biotin, etc. I do a B12 shot every Saturday and do a general parasite cleanse every 3 months. My day needs to be as efficient as possible, so I’m a big believer in taking care of one’s body and preventative medicine. “Get out what you put in”… I ALWAYS see/feel the results of this sentiment.
7:45 a.m. Juice! Fresh juice is the best resource for vitamins, but we all know that. I like a blend of carrots, kale, apples and lemon.
7:50 a.m. Quick shower + make-up. I love product and packaging! Love a lot of the Nars products, and have an obsession with Moroccan Oil. I love a good Men’s scent to help me feel grounded. I LOVE BYREDO. Oud Immortel and Black Saffron are beautiful.
8:00 a.m. OMG, I’M LATE. (Even when I’m not, my natural instincts tell me that I am. I guess it’s a survival tactic.) Get ready! I’m usually running around for the day and have multiple places to be, so I’ll pack my laptop, sketches and notes in one bag. I’ll pack a bag with all my training gear, and then I’ll pack my purse along with an extra pair of heels.
8:30 a.m. Toss everything in my car and head off to campus.
