Why does my child not sleep through the night anymore? He is waking me up EVERY night. Whether it is because he has to go to the bathroom – can he not just walk downstairs and do his business by himself? Or he needs a drink – another task he is fully capable of doing on his own. Ever since we put a stop to letting him sleep in our bed, we have been paying the price – that would be lack of ZZZZZZZZ’s. He does sneak in after I leave for the gym so this morning he woke me up at 3 AM and asked me if I was getting up – um, NO!!! He then kept coming in my room with some excuse to talk to me. By the time my alarm was going to go off, I was so ready to not be in my bed anymore. He seriously will stand next to my bed and say “mommy I really need to tell you something – I love you.” I know it sounds cute and all but I really just want to get some sleep.
All that being said – I am turning into a coffee junky. I actually had a cup yesterday afternoon and I was fully able to go to bed at 9 last night. I am still loving my French Press coffee maker and I have quite the collection of coffees to choose from. My latest addition is Blueberry Cobbler.
This morning I drank 2 cups of coffee – something that I NEVER do anymore. I try to limit my caffeine consumption to 1 cup in order to avoid the shakes but I just could not help myself. So far I am ok but I am going to make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the morning – that usually helps me avoid the jitters too.
Obviously I booked it to the gym as soon as my feet hit the floor this morning. I did a 5 mile run and 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer (with moving handles). I ventured into the weight room for a great strength training session. I pulled out a few oldie but goodie moves today – Reverse Crossover Lunge being one I have not done in a while. I ended with some foam rolling before heading home.
Breakfast was a bowl of Blueberry Oat Bran topped with the same Fall flavors as yesterday.
I am a complete Sunflower Seed butter convert. Peanut butter just does not compare anymore.
This yumminess was the perfect start to my day (along with the coffee). I am hoping that the 2 cups of caffeine will keep me bright eyed.
I hope you have a great day.
