8:30 AM  I love a good lie in, but I also love to get stuff done on Sundays too, so I have my lie ins on Saturdays (much needed after the long week), and on Sundays, I'm usually up at 8:30am to get to my favourite workouts at Equinox. When I wake, I have 2 glasses of water with a little lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, and if I have time I'll follow this with a coffee or hot water with cacao. I prefer to workout in a fasting state, so I generally don't eat before I leave the house, unless I'm super hungry, then I'll grab some fruit and / or nuts.


10:00 AM It doesn't sound very restful but I love taking time in the morning for boxing. It's one of my favourite workouts and I love the trainer at Equinox.


11:00 AM I rest and read my book or catch up with a friend whilst I wait for a second workout. Again, it sounds intense and most people probably prefer to stay in bed all morning, but at the moment I've got a really good relationship with working out and i genuinely enjoy it.


12:15 PM Barre class starts at Equinox. The best!


1:15 PM I head straight for the sauna after class and steam for a while before taking my time in the shower. When I'm done, I usually head straight home or meet a friend for lunch. I also pick up some groceries on my way home, something to make for lunch if I don't meet a friend, and a few foundations for my meals for the week ahead.


3:00 PM Back home I tend to tidy my house a little, and either read a book, some of my favourite websites, or watch something on TV. I also spend time speaking on FaceTime to my boyfriend over in Sweden, and / or my parents.


5:00 PM to 9:00 PM A light meal for dinner if I'm hungry, and more of the same, reading, writing or watching something on TV. I tend to do a little bit of work on Sunday evenings, if anything just making a fresh to do list or planning my week ahead. If i'm feeling organised, and if my schedule for the week permits, I do some meal prep, either cooking in batches, or just pre-cooking some bits to throw together during the week. I tend to juice some ginger and lemon to keep in bulk in the fridge for quick and easy drinks during the week, and sometimes I'll also juice some apple, cucumber and celery to have on hand too.


10:00 PM I start winding down, and try to be in bed about 11:00 PM. If I'm super exhausted, I'll indulge in an early night and its lights out around 10:00 PM.
