When juggling busy careers and lives, it’s not always easy to find the time to hit the gym or prepare a healthy meal. For inspiration, we’re asking influential women in a variety of industries to share a typical day of eats and fitness, to see just how they balance a healthy lifestyle with their jam-packed schedules. Today, Victoria’s Secret model Kelly Gale reveals the workouts and splurges that keep her going during a day in her very active life—even during the madness of fashion week.
“I started my day quite early with a workout alongside Michael Olajide at Aerospace before breakfast. It’s always the first thing I do in the morning: If I don’t have to work or travel, I usually go every single morning to box.”
“Breakfast itself was plain yogurt, homemade pistachio butter, and homemade, grain-free müesli served with chopped-up apples. Before I left for my first fashion week appointment, I used a few minutes to quickly put together my lunch for later…”
“…Crisp bread with avocado, goat cheese, dried figs, and walnuts.”
“I worked and went to appointments throughout the day, and I brought some different types of raw dark chocolate to snack on. I make sure to eat 30 grams of raw dark chocolate almost every day—it’s one of the best snacks that’s both delicious and guilt-free.”
“Before dinner, I actually had some time to spare, so I went for a 35-minute, 8-kilometer run. Afterwards, I cooked the final meal of the day for myself and a friend before we went out to a fashion week event. I made chicken breast served with asparagus, spinach, and mushrooms, which I topped with shavings of parmesan cheese and little bit of aged balsamic vinegar. At the event itself, they served some light food and drinks, but I just had water because I was already satisfied after my dinner!”
