My Diet + Routine

This is my typical day / routine when I’m home in Denver, Colorado. Having some structure to your day is so important to success. First, you must find the people, places, and things that bring you joy, and fill your being with positive energy.

I wake up around 6:45am (I don’t set an alarm). I rarely schedule anything before 8am. Upon waking, I drink 20 ounces of cold water and brew 16 ounces of Eleva Coffee in my Technivorm Pour-Over Coffee Machine. I put one dropper of Beam mint CBD oil (promo code: EHINMAN) in the coffee. I take a shot of Rightful AM formula (promo code: EHINMAN) then I make a smoothie bowl using 2 handfuls of spinach, half a banana, two tablespoons cacao nibs, 1 1/2 cup Elmhurst cashew milk, Golden Root turmeric powder, ginger powder, ice.

If I don’t have a coffee meeting, I work from 8am — 9:30am, answering messages, and posting on social media. 3–4 days / week, I meet someone for coffee — generally someone new. This might be a contact from social media, someone I was introduced to, or catching up with a like-minded person. I make a conscious effort to meet several new people every day.

10am — 12pm — Workout 1

(5 days / week — Thursday + Sunday, I typically stay out of the gym)

2:30pm — 4:30pm — Workout 2 (7 days / week)

I like to vary this — 3–4 days of mtn biking. 2–3 days of hiking / trail running. 2 days road running — on pavement. Rock climbing occasionally — for mental toughness!
