So Sleepy!

My lack of sleep DEFINITELY caught up with me today! I think that I was so focused on work before that I didn’t really realize just how tired I was, but now that things have slowed down a bit my body sure is feeling it. I got a glorious 8 hours of sleep last night and could have kept sleeping for much longer if my alarm hadn’t woken me up. 99% of the time I wake up before my alarm goes off but today not only did it wake me up but I hit snooze twice! I can’t even remember the last time that happened!


If I didn’t have a bowl of overnight oats waiting for me I don’t think I would have been able to force myself out of bed at all and would have missed my classes. Good thing I love this so much that it makes getting out of bed worthwhile!


Even with my large mug of coffee it was hard to concentrate during my 2 classes, I have just felt like I’m in a fog all day! For lunch I had my usual pre-yoga meal: ezekial, pb, laughing cow, and cottage cheese.


I forced myself to get some homework done this afternoon and managed to avoid a nap with the help of my study-buddies:


I was extra-hungry for dinner tonight and was really glad that I cooked up some quinoa earlier this afternoon when I had some extra time. This way all I had to do was pop it in the microwave and it was ready to eat! I also had a salad, and some lightlife brand soy “chicken” tenders. This was my first time trying them and I guess they’re alright. They didn’t really taste like much but when dipped in ketchup they were fine. It’s a quick and easy way to get in some protein and make me feel like I’m eating more of a ‘real’ dinner.


I did a little more work and a couple hours later I was hungry again! I couldn’t decide what I wanted–part of me was in a ‘grazing’ mood but my stomach still felt hungry so I knew I needed something with a little more to it. I decided to have some yogurt followed by popcorn to satisfy both of my cravings. It worked like a charm!

I have nothing much going on tomorrow so I plan on getting to bed soon and sleeping as long as my body needs. Hopefully I’ll finally feel well-rested! Goodnight everyone!

    overnight oats are so easy and AMAZING. the night before i combine 1/2 c dry old-fashioned oats with 1T flax, and 1/2 c. water and let that sit in the fridge overnight. Then in the morning I add cinnamon, a banana, and greek yogurt. It’s the best!

    Call me strange, but I really want that rice cake.

    I love caramel rice cakes, but they haven’t been going on sale at the grocery store! =S

    I usually wake up before my alarm too or my Dog will happily wake me up early as well. 🙂

    I really liked the Pumpkin Spice Bars, I like the pumpkin seeds in them. I wish they were a little more pumpkiny but still yummy. I really want to try the Clif pumpkin bars I’ve seen around.

    All else remains very much ignored. One can try
    out with the particular flavors of the cake according to the
    taste of a person. birthday parties, the birthday candle represents a great part of
    his or her natal day.
