Last week, Apple introduced the next generation of its iPhone camera. The iPhone 11 Pro (and iPhone 11 Pro Max) have a new triple-camera system with ultra-wide, wide and telephoto cameras. WH collaborated with photographer Kevin Lu to capture some of the very first photos taken with iPhone 11 Pro Max; you can see his photos of Carli Lloyd, Captain of the U.S. Women’s National Team, in this piece.
Soccer star Carli Lloyd's resume is the stuff of legends: She joined the U.S. Women's National Team in 2005, has been co-captain since 2015, is a two-time FIFA World Player of the Year, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, and a two-time World Cup winner. (And those are just the top-line highlights.) So it's no surprise that her morning routine is also crazy-impressive.
In under an hour, Carli’s dressed, fueled, caught up on social media, and ready to head out the door to train with her home team, New Jersey's Sky Blue FC.
7:30 a.m.: I wake up, but I don’t get out of bed just yet.
“I set my alarm for an hour before I have to leave the house so that I have time to get ready at my own pace. Instead of hitting the snooze button, I’ll use those first five to eight minutes of my morning to look over my schedule for the day, start chipping away at emails, and get up to speed on my social media feeds. If I spend more than just those few minutes doing this, I’ll end up rushing to get to training on time, which is something I can't risk considering I live about an hour from the practice field.”
7:35 a.m.: After brushing my teeth, I get dressed for training.
“The uniform I wear to practice makes getting ready a straight-forward process. So, once I’m in my gear, I’m pretty much set."
7:45 a.m.: I make myself coffee and take my time drinking it.
“Once I’m downstairs, it’s time for coffee. My brew of choice is a cappuccino made in a Nespresso with beans I grind myself—and oat milk. Once that’s ready, I’ll take a few minutes to sip on it and chill out for a bit rather than diving right into making myself breakfast. I like separating the two so that I can really enjoy my coffee while I read through a few more emails.”
7:55 a.m.: Now, I’m ready to eat.
“Some days, I make myself two eggs over-easy with a side of avocado, Greek yogurt, and either strawberries, blueberries, or watermelon. Otherwise, I’ll keep things light and make myself a green smoothie. My go-to ingredients are water, ice, spinach, kale, pineapple, cinnamon, green grapes, juice squeezed from half a lemon, avocado, kiwi, ginger, and mint—which really make a smoothie good. If I’m on schedule at this point, I’ll sit down and drink my smoothie at home. This is usually when my husband will come downstairs and join me. We’ll use the last few minutes before I go to catch up a little and go over our plans for the day with each other.
8:15 a.m.: I hit the road.
“Before the World Cup, I would listen to podcasts on my way to the field. At the time, I was into The Joe Rogan Experience and Dr. Death. Since coming back home, I’ve mostly used the long commute to take calls, including some with my husband if we didn’t get a chance to talk much before I left the house. And if I don’t have too many calls that day, I’ll turn on Spotify or SiriusXM Radio and just listen to whatever comes on.”
