Slept like a…

…well, actually…like a restless baby.

Thanks for the advice last night!  Funny that I’ve posted several times about my sleep troubles, but out of the woodwork I had like 4 people mention melatonin this time! 

I’ve heard of it, but never really knew what it was…and definitely didn’t know that it’s an item simply available on the vitamin wall at any market or pharmacy.  I was out running errands last night and picked this up at Wal-Mart for like $6.


I took two tablets around 11:30pm, went to bed just after midnight (feeling lightheaded) and was able to fall asleep sometime just after 1am.  I definitely think the pills helped, but it will probably take a few days to know for sure.

I didn’t sleep super soundly, and did wake up feeling a bit groggy…but at least I got up on time!!

To kick the groggy I made my green smoothie right away…


In the KA today:  lots of ice, 1/2 banana, fresh spinach, flax meal, Amazing Meal, UVAB.

Sipped coffee with vanilla soy milk


And munched on oatmeal molasses toast with PB & Supercrack…


Last night while I was tidying up and taking inventory of fridge perishables, I decided to write up my meal plan for today so I wouldn’t just be scrambling for food all day. 


In sticking with the plan I just polished off my bigass salad with avocado and salsa!

With fresh spinach, baby greens, radishes, carrots, yellow peppers and mushrooms.  Deeeeeeeeeeeelish. 

This evening entails a tasty dinner, some kind of workout, and preparation for the arrival of my weekend guests…Miss Mousearoo and Miss Tara!!  That’s right…blog girls get together!!  Cat and Jen are coming to town too. 

It’s gonna be a downright fabulous weekend!!

I see you have fiddleheads on your list...that is such a Nova Scotia thing to me! How do you prepare them? We used to boil or steam them, and then drizzle on lemon juice and butter.

Do you write down your meal plan everyday or is this just a getting-back-on-track thing?

If your insomnia continues, are there any massage places open a bit later there? (The REAL massage places!) If you could get a late appointment, then you could just go home and crawl into bed.
I always want to sleep after having that done :)
