A day in the life with Ashley Wagner
I wake up at 8:00 a.m. and prepare to train for about four to five hours each day. I'll make myself a smoothie in the morning to get going. For breakfast, I have two frozen waffles with peanut butter.
I head into the rink and skate for two hours.
Afterwards, I take a break for an hour to eat lunch. Usually that’s spinach and quinoa salad with salmon, zucchini and lemon.
Then, I get back on the ice for another hour. One of my favorite snacks after that is apples and cucumbers with hummus.
I head to the gym for about two hours to close out the training for the day.
I love cooking, so nutrition is a fun part of my job. I try to eat very clean, and balance out protein and carbs to fuel myself with energy.
For dinner, I might have something like chicken and orzo with feta cheese and olives.
If it’s time to indulge, I’m having a burger and fries, or chicken tenders and apple pie with ice cream.
I try to get eight hours of sleep per night.
