Sleeping has never been my strong suit. I’m more on the side of: go go go go go for weeks then crash for an entire weekend. Sounds fun, eh? Not so much. So me waking up at 4:30 this morning isn’t all that surprising. I tossed and turned for a bit, convincing myself I could fall back asleep. Once I finally accepted the unlikelihood of this, I decided on some “me time”. I made a pot of coffee, grabbed an apple; and snuggled up on the couch with some self-indulgent trashy tv until it was time for work. Reminder: today is Wednesday. Wednesday workdays are not my favorite.
I had breakfast mid-morning-
Breakfast: 1/2 cup of yogurt, 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup granola and a tablespoon of almond butter
Lunch: leftover Chana Masala
I carried on with my work day, but seriously had the munchies. Mostly because I was stressed out of my damn mind at work. Luckily I remedy this with an apple instead of the entire pint of ice cream that is currently in my freezer. OK, a spoonful of almond butter may have made its way in there too.Edit
After work I went directly to yoga, which I completed half heartedly.
Truthfully, today was a tough one. My lack of sleep took a toll on me in the mid-afternoon. I shed some self-pity tears post-yoga, which was actually slightly therapeutic. Then I picked myself up and took my favorite pups for a relaxing walk, met friends out for a drink, and made my way home from some Shoyu Cabbage Soup that I had thrown together in the morning. It’s basically homemade, healthy ramen.
