Counting Sheep…and Everything Else

July 24, 2015

I slept like absolute crap last night. I woke up at 1:00 am to pee from all of the water that I drank at dinner, then I literally just lay in bed awake. The last time that I looked at the clock, it was 3:45 am. I counted sheep. I practiced deep breathing. I made to do list. I covered up. I uncovered. I went from side to side and then to my back. Finally, sometime after 4:00 am, I went back to sleep, only to wake back up at 6:00 am. So….I got up. I had a busy morning anyhow, so I’m just now getting a post up.

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Lots of snacking yesterday.

Pear with 1 tsp Almond Butter and 1 tsp Chia Seeds, Egg Whites with 1/8 Avocado and Salsa

    Oh, Crowns are the WORST!! I only have one, but hope to never have another. So glad it was only a filling for you!

  2. I feel your pain–didn’t sleep a couple of nights because I cracked a tooth but it only needed a new filling and I worried about getting a crown–ugh –lol. I ate comfort food but you ate well today so you should be proud of your self because it’s hard to make good decisions when your tired.
