I know, I know………….I asked for it!!!!! But I am SO tired!!!!!!!
I knew I probably wouldn’t get my usual 7 1/2 – 8 hours of sleep last night, but I wasn’t expecting to only get 1 1/2!!!!!!!!! Yep, that’s right. I didn’t fall asleep until 1:30 in the morning. Ryan passed out at 8:30 (exhausted from his trip!) and even though I took a sleeping aid, I still managed to somehow keep myself up all night long tossing and turning. At 1:00 I woke up Ryan and he gave me a back massage and even then I actually debated if I should just get up, shower and get dressed. I finally fell asleep after that but have felt like a truck hit me all day. So was it worth it?? Of course =) This just goes to show that above all, I am a total creature of habit. I have to have my exact routine every night where I eat dinner, pack my breakfast, blog, take a bath, do bible study, read, rub tiger balm all over my legs (haha) and go to bed. I can’t just switch it up for one night! Oh well.
But look what the boy found me at the store last night!
Yay! Of course I have tried it already today and of course I love it. I seriously have like six different nut butters goin on in the fridge right now!
This morning when I was all bleary eyed and half asleep, I took a strong coffee + clif bar for the drive to work:
I LOVED this clif bar flavor. I’d have to say that it is now my favorite. It tasted like a girl scout cookie!
My manager was sweet enough to recognize I’d had a rough night (aka I was in my glasses at work because my eyes had sunk into my head) and bought me a Kombucha! It did make me feel a teeny tiny bit better.
And then around 8:00 I had breakfast….naturally!
This mix contained:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch sea salt
- 1 banana
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 big scoop Naturally More peanut butter
I really like the nuttiness of this peanut butter. Nice for a change!
When I got home from work I mixed together a quick yogurt bowl for lunch:
- 1 plain chobani
- 1/2 cup cinnamon puffins
- 1/2 cup Zoe’s Honey Almond Granola
- 1 scoop almond butter
- drizzle raspberry preserves
Yum, yum, yum.
All I could think about at work is how I wanted to run today. I know, it sounds crazy since I am beyond exhausted but it hasn’t been the best day and running is how I release a lot of stress. However, deep down I know that I can’t run today since I just ran Saturday. Right now it seems I can only run twice a week and as much as I want to, I know I’ll pay for it tomorrow (shin pain!) if I push it today. Maybe I’ll ride my bike instead?
