Kelly Ripa just revealed how much coffee it takes to get her "great energy level" -- and it's a lot.
The "Live With Kelly and Ryan" co-host took part in The Cut's "How I Get It Done" column, where she shared some of the secrets to her daily routine and active lifestyle, and to say that she has an impressive level of self-discipline would be an understatement.
In order to be out the door by 7 in the morning, the television personality wakes up at 5:30 or 6, thinks of ideas for that day's show, showers and then wakes up her children. Before heading out the door of her Upper East Side home, though, she makes a highly-caffeinated concoction that she learned from co-host Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend, Shayna Taylor.
"I make a 'Bullet Coffee' at home in the morning -- it’s coffee, two shots of espresso and a tablespoon of ghee and then a packet of collagen powder," she explained. "I blend it all together and have this frosty thick beverage."
But that's not the only caffeine she'll drink in a day.
"I have a Starbucks latte when I get to 'Live,'" she went on. "Then I will have a half a coffee after the show wraps. I have a great energy level. I don’t nap, and I fear that if I did nap it would probably make me stay awake all night."
In addition to detailing her caffeine intake, Ripa explained the thinking behind her workout routine that leaves her body looking "like Peter Pan no matter what I do."
"I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is," she said. "I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends. In the summer, I like to run in Central Park because I think it’s so gorgeous."
