Thank you so much for your many kind words and sympathies regarding my insomnia. Sometimes you really feel like you are the ONLY one in the world that can’t fall asleep at night so it helps immensely just to know that there are other girls out there that fight the same problem.
Needless to say, this afternoon draggggeeeeeeddddd on. I’m SO ready for Saturday at 12:30 because Sunday is my long awaited day off! Today I went to the library and put my name on the waiting list for the new Wally Lamb book (which looks AMAZING!) and checked out two other books, one of which is just an old school Danielle Steel. I think I need some light and easy reading in my life to lull the sleep fairies. 😉
Later, even though my eyes were burning from exhaustion, I gave it all to my mat and did a 60 minute Baptiste Power Vinyasa class from yogadownloads. Even though it was just a beginners class, I found it rather challenging….probably because I’m so tired! I like to do beginner classes every now and then though because I find they really focus on the postures, rather than rushing through a vinyasa. You learn to really breathe in warrior one and two. Breeeeeeathe. Ahhhhh. I felt so much better after I did the class so I took Mikan out on a 15 minute walk in the cold. And yes, it is quite chilly here! haha 🙂
After my walk I found no better time ever than to have a healthy glass of red wine.
And for dinner, I heated up some roasted fingerling potatoes my mom made earlier (roast with olive olive, sea salt, pepper and cayenne at 400 for 20-ish minutes?) as well as a sunshine burger. I also had a yummy babybell cheese on the side and a large arugula salad with woodstock dressing.
I’m now sipping on chamomile tea and about ready to hit the bath. I downloaded a 16 minute relaxing savasana meditation from yogadownloads and I’m going to try that on my ipod right when I get into bed tonight. I’ll let you know in the morning on whether it worked or not!
See you tomorrow!
