6:20am: If I’ve had an early night, my alarm goes off at 6:20am and I check emails quickly to see if anything has changed for my schedule in the morning.
6:45am: I throw on my yoga gear, grab a banana, hop in the car, and head to an hour or 85 minute yoga class.
8:00am: After my zen session I'll run home to shower and make a glowing green smoothie in my Vitamix and maybe eat some oats as well. “My smoothie contains; banana, almond milk, dates, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, vegan protein powder, blueberries, kale, spinach and ice,” Bargh told POPSUGAR Australia.
8:45am: After I shower and change, I head into the office.
9:00am: On the drive to work I like to listen to podcasts. Currently I'm into the new season of Serial. It makes the drive go that much faster and I feel like I'm doing something productive with my time. Otherwise, I'm singing at the top of my lungs to Justin Bieber—shamelessly.
9:30am: I'm in hair and makeup and this is when I normally respond to emails and texts, look at my booking sheets for the day, and do some research on my interviews.
10:30am: My hair and makeup is done and I head to the voice-over booth to record pieces for my interviews that are airing on the show that day.
