MY HEALTHY MORNING ROUTINE + WORK OUT ROUTINE | Lydia Elise Millen | Ad


Good morning everyone and welcome to my healthy morning routine. I start my day by waking up using a loony alarm clock. And no I'm not talking about that loony. It's one of those alarm clocks that wakes you up with a little light and it's a lot gentler. 
I drag myself out of bed and into my slippers and dressing gown and then I open the blinds and I always always make my bed. It's really important to me that I always make my bed once I get out of it even if there is a little furry things that's on it. Then it's off downstairs to get her some breakfast. At the moment we're feeding her cat again which is a grain free pet food and apparently the Queen's corgis eat it as well. So if it's good enough for them it's good enough for Princess me. But then it's onto me and I like to kick start my day with a hot lemon and Himalayan pink salt water. I just like to kickstart my immune system and especially in these cold mornings it's a nice way to warm up that's for sure. To ensure that I'm as time efficient as possible in the mornings I like to get my activewear ready for the night before and at the moment I am wearing the USA Pro and Matthew Williamson collaboration which for me is very very exciting. I have been a fan of Matthew Williamson and his bold and intricate Prince for as long as I can remember. So being able to wear this now in the gym is a bit of a treat. This super exciting collaboration is available exclusively at one of my favorite stores which is flannels so I will have made sure that I've linked all of the beautiful items in the description box below.

Then it's time for my healthy morning beauty routine and I start by brushing my teeth using the brawn aurally smart series teeth brush with the Pearl drops whitening treatment and for my mouthwash I just use coarse to deal with daily. Then it's onto my skincare routine and currently I'm using the animist biotech skin energizing cleanser which just last forever.

I can't believe how long this cleanser lasts and it feels super soft on my skin and it doesn't feel like drying in any way whatsoever. I'm really enjoying using this. I do love to really massage this in probably a little bit longer than I should but finally I rent it off using lukewarm water and pat dry it with a towel. Then it's time to moisturize and I'm using the llama moisturizing soft cream. This has always been a bit of a favorite of mine is just really hydrating and I do suffer with dry skin. A lot of the time so this just works really well and I follow up with the SCA to facial treatment oil which is just stunning. I've fallen in love with this brand at the moment so I'm loving using that in the morning. Then to wake up my eyes slightly I just pop in any old eyedrops that I've got and of course to give my skin a healthy glow. I'm using the victory send in a Rose serum in sunny flash and this is one of my favorite products ever so as you can see it makes me look a little bit more awake then for under my eyes I'm using the debt clear or absolute intense glow for eyes and this just takes away any dark circles and just kind of light reflect that away and I'm just popping a quick slathering of the bite Harry bond to raise on my lips because this is just beautiful and who doesn't love this product.

So that is my beauty routine finished and now it's time to pop on my favorite item from the Matthew Williamson and USA Pro collaboration. It's these zipped tracked up and it fits like a glove. This is so so beautiful I love the colors of it. I love the print and I love the fact that it's got gold hardware as well and it does just fit so nicely. Look at the color and the way that it just clings in all of the right places. Then it's time for my pre workout before I run out the door and I just have a quick espresso. This is just a natural pre workout. I like to have in the morning and it's super quick and easy so it's just nice to enjoy it. That's the thing I like to take five minutes after rushing around all morning and just have a coffee before I head out of the door. I then got to quickly pop all of my essential items in my gym bag which is like my water bottle and headphones and towel and gloves and all of that stuff and then I quickly put on my USA Pro trainers which I really like and they're very very comfortable and they're also black and white so they don't kind of detract from the really beautiful prints from the Matthew Williamson in USA Pro collaboration. It just kind of lets it do its thing and I really like that

Now my gym is only a short drive from my house. I don't really like to run it because I can't run because of my knee. So this gives me some valuable singing time. And at the moment I'm just loving singing to Justin Bieber which is usually just enough time for me to arrive at my gym which is the David Lloyd and it's kind of just become my second home over the years. I've been going here for over two years now and it's just I just love it here.

So to start my workout off I like to use the cross trainer and I run about five k every time I come to the gym I run on the cross trainer because obviously I have a knee injury so it's really important for me to not have that impact on my knee. I run my five k in about 15 minutes and I know that a lot of people think that's very good but I do think it's slightly easier on the cross trainer. Once I finish my five K I am definitely warmed up. I mean look at that pink face so I make sure that I rehydrate a lot. I drink a lot of water anyway so it's really important that I rehydrate after I run. But it's also in preparation for the next part of my workout. Now most days I don't have a lot of time to spend in the gym so I tried to get in frequently but not spend too long whilst I'm there. And today I'm doing a bit of a mini body blitz. This is just a bit of a circuit where I try to work the main muscle groups that I train when I'm in the gym so that's my legs my arms and my abs. And to this I always want to wear my gloves because I don't like to get calluses on my hands so I just pop those on quickly for when I'm using the weights.

Now I starts off using this Chibi thing and because I'm not a professional I don't know the technical term. And I do these kind of kettlebell swing things and these usually leave me so that I can't walk for the rest of the week and I actually really enjoy that feeling. But I do those for one minute and then without resting I move on to doing these for another minute and then again without resting I move on to the mat. And I do these kind of walk out things which work my arms and my abs. And as you can see I'm not very good at pushups but I do my best. I repeat those three exercises about three or four times and I rest two minutes in between each set of those three if that makes sense. I hope that makes sense. I'll pop it in the description box to say that you know for definite that's my little mini workout finished. You can add in other exercises. I sometimes do as well but it is time for me to get showered and on with my day. So I'm using the Clarence shower mousse and it's probably the most luxurious thing I own. But I think that every day should start with a little bit of luxury and then I get changed into a snuggly jumper and some leggings because I like to be snuggly whilst I get to work.

For my post workout protein smoothie. I have the super elixir nourishing protein which is like vegan and organic and just the tastiest thing I've ever tasted. And I have that with the whole right banana and some almond milk and what I do is I just shove it all in my new tablet and with it in there quickly for about a minute. But other than it being really healthy. The main reason I have this is I'm not always ready to eat just after being in the gym. So I have this protein shake. Within 30 minutes of training and it just kind of repairs my muscles and gives them a big shot of protein but I will no doubt have a proper breakfast later on this is just the perfect thing to take to my desk with me and start replying to the hundreds of emails in my inbox. So that is my healthy morning routine. I hope that you have enjoyed this video.
