A Behind-The-Scenes Look Into My Healthy Lifestyle (Meals, Workouts, Routines, & Healthy Habits!)

behind the scenes healthy lifestyle

Everyone loves getting the inside scoop & seeing real-life examples when it comes to just about anything in life — and living a healthy lifestyle is no exception.  

So this week I wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look into my lifestyle — an example of a day-in-the-life of Dr. Christi when it comes to meals, working out, daily routines, & anything related to healthy living. ☺

Disclaimer: I’m not saying EVERY single day looks just like this — obviously my meals are different each day, my workouts are different, & unfortunately I’m not perfect at getting all of these health-boosting activities into my day 100% of the time 😬…but I do my best!  

My hope is that this gives you ideas of things to incorporate into your lifestyle to make it even healthier & happier, and that it shows you how simple healthy living can actually be (we don’t have to make it more complex than it is!).

✅ Morning Routine — Right After I Wake Up:

I like to start my day off with a simple yet powerful routine that jumpstarts my day & gets me into a positive state.  This routine supports my physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual health! ☀

Here are the main components I include in my morning routine:

✅ Intermittent Fasting — Throughout the Day:

I typically fast for about 16-18 hours per day, & eat all of my food for the day within a 6-8 hour window.  My eating period is usually between ~12pm to 7pm, & then my fasting period is usually from ~7pm until 12pm the next day.

Intermittent fasting promotes fat-burning, detoxification, weight management, brain health, & more!  (It’s one of my favorite health hacks that has so many benefits for overall wellness, is easy to implement, & doesn’t cost a thing!  You can learn more about it here!) 🙌

✅ Workout — Before Lunch or Mid-Afternoon:

My workout time changes depending on the day, but I prefer to work out either shortly before lunch (around 11:30am), or sometime in the mid-afternoon or early evening, between lunch & dinner. 

Working out before lunch is even more ideal because the benefits are heightened by working out at the end of a fasting period. 💪

Here’s an example of the TYPE of workout I like to do most days: (This is a tough one!  But you can do it at YOUR maximum output & modify the exercises if needed.  Give it a try!! 😄)


  1. Push-Ups
  2. Jump Squats
  3. Half Burpees
  4. Jumping Knee Tucks

20 seconds on, as fast as you can; 10 seconds rest

Go through the sequence of 4 exercise movements 8 times!

✅ Lunch — Sometime Between 12pm to 2pm:

My lunches are usually pretty simple, & sometimes kinda hodge-podge (a little of this & a little of that — a random assortment of healthy snacks/foods).

An example of a typical lunch for me is a GIANT salad with arugula, raw red bell peppers, raw cashews, ½ of an avocado, a healthy dressing (either organic extra virgin olive oil + balsamic vinegar, OR Primal Kitchen dressings — my fave!).  Plus 2 organic, free-range eggs (cooked in organic virgin coconut oil) — which I like to put on the salad & mix together with everything else. 😋

✅ Supplements — Taken With Lunch or Dinner:

Some of my daily supplements include:

  • Vitamin D3 + Probiotics (supports immune system, digestion, & more)
  • Optimal Omega (promotes cardiovascular health, brain & nerve system health, & healthy fat ratios)
  • Multi-Vitamin (I take a kids chewable multi since I’m not the best at swallowing pills…🙃 haha).

✅ Get Adjusted — Sometime Throughout the Day:

I get chiropractic adjustments at least once per week, but usually 2-3 times per week.

Chiropractic care removes interference from the brain & nerve system, allowing the body to heal & function at the highest level.  Weekly adjustments help me stay healthy, happy, & reaching my full potential.

✅ Snack (Possibly) — Mid-Afternoon:

I usually eat 2 big meals per day (lunch & dinner), but if I’m hungry in between, I’ll eat a healthy snack.  

Granny smith apple with raw almond butter, flax crackers with coconut oil or hummus, raw nuts, or a smoothie are all snacks I enjoy.

✅ Dinner — Sometime Between 6:30pm to 8:30pm:

An example meal I like to have for dinner is Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps — made with organic grass-fed ground beef, sauteed veggies (like onions, mushrooms, peppers, & garlic), & a delectable sauce (made with raw almond butter, Bragg’s liquid aminos, apple cider vinegar, olive oil or toasted sesame oil, salt & pepper).  This delicious beef, veggie, & sauce mixture is best served in romaine lettuce wraps or on a bed of greens.

As a side, I tend to eat things like cauliflower mashed “potatoes”, cheesy coconut biscuits, or steamed green beans or asparagus.

For dessert, I’ll often have some Lily’s Chocolate (sugar-free dark chocolate sweetened with stevia & erythritol)!  Or if I’m feeling ambitious, I might make a dessert like Chocolate Chia Pudding or Almond Butter Cups. 😋

About 4 times per week, I’ll eat a delish, healthy dinner from Factor 75 for dinner, (like goat cheese chicken with quinoa, peas, & pureed carrots, or grass-fed steak with sweet potato fries & broccoli), instead of having to make dinner — #win #dreamcometrue! 👌

✅ Water Intake — Throughout the Day:

I make sure to drink at least 62 ounces of water per day, but ideally I shoot for 70-80 ounces.  

Drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water every day for optimal health!

✅ Bedtime Routine:

As I’m winding down for the night & getting ready for bed, I like to promote peace & relaxation as much as possible.  Here’s how I like to end my day & transition into sleep mode:

There you have it, friend — a whole example day-in-the-life when it comes to healthy living!
