Women Leaders on How They Start Their Day

This is oh-so precious!

When you and I wake up, we resist the pull to consciousness.  We hit the snooze button, and only reluctantly shuffle into the kitchen.  We pull out cereal, make the coffee, and, maybe, watch the news. We operate on autopilot, for the most part.  The more energetic of us may even do a few crunches, pick a healthier breakfast, perhaps leave early for the office.

Not for some of THESE ladies.  They are the creme of 'da dames, the future leaders of tomorrow.

Not for them cereal, it's "quinoa" cereal - just so you understand that they are Gluten-Free (insert copyright symbol here).  They don't just do a few exercises, they "do an hour or so of 3rd or 4th series ashtanga yoga".

Another -  "6:43 Alarm goes off. No snooze. Pull on John Eshaya sweatpants and clogs.
6:50 Make coffee (fair trade); microwave Zen Bakery muffin (vegan) First breakfast."
What the heck is First breakfast?
"7:15-7:45 Make breakfast for family. When producing or directing, I rarely made it home in time to cook dinner so I shifted the focus to breakfast. I make buttermilk pancakes, eggs in a frame, and for over a decade, we have Crepes Thursday. I make the batter the night before (so the flour absorbs the liquid) and then customize for each family member with fresh-toasted pecans, nutella, marshmallows, and bananas."
Other women in the article are more normal - they have to detach their kids from their games/entertainment, prod them out of bed, remind them to brush, and walk/drive the younger ones to school.
Go read it - the first few are a hoot.

How many of those morning routines do you think are... well, you know... real? As opposed to their idea of what they should do?
