Deep Sleep and Good Nutrition Make a Girl Happy

Wednesday, January 28, 2009
Today got off to a rough start initially, with Juniper waking up at 1:30AM wanting to eat and play. By eat, I mean she wanted a whole yogurt and some pretzel sticks. Must be a growth spurt. By 4AM, I was starting to feel tortured. Sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture for a reason. I was starting to feel a little psychotic by 4AM, so I marched Juniper up to Landon, and she was sound asleep by 4:30AM. I woke up four hours later feeling great. It's amazing what that magic number of four hours in a row of uninterrupted sleep will do for a woman.

We had a nice afternoon hosting a play-date, and I enjoyed chatting with the Mom of Sam's friend while they played. I hope we can have more play-dates with them in the future.

Tonight, I sliced up some potatoes, fried them in a little olive oil, added 8 eggs, some scallions, fresh tomatoes, salt, pepper, cheese, crumbled fresh bacon, and a cup of buckwheat, wrapped it all up in a spinach tortilla, and what a meal! I am trying to incorporate whole grain into at least one meal a day now, and I can't tell you how much better I feel now that whole grain is a main staple in my diet. The health benefits of whole grains are many, and for the most part, grain is very affordable. We are trying out all different whole grains; so far, we've really liked them all, and they go with nearly any main course. I'm hoping to try my hand at sprouting wheat this week for additional health benefits. As always, I'll keep you posted.

P.S. It was a month ago today that Juniper started walking!
