This table has been living in our basement for as long as I can remember. As a child, I stuffed many food wrappers under it in hopes that my parents would not find them (was I stupid or something?) - I was too lazy to walk to the garbage can 5 feet away. Get over it, I was 10.
My mother decided at 6:30 this morning when I was sleeping (in the basement, might I add - my room is a stinking sauna in the summertime) that she really wanted to get rid of this table. I suppose it was my fault for moving a pinky because she in turn thought I was wide awake and ready to get my day in gear. My mother so sweetly asked me to help her carry this very light (insert sarcasm here) table up the stairs and out to the street for the garbage man to take away. This table would have been hard to carry at 3 in the afternoon, let alone groggy and weak from not getting enough sleep. HOLY COW! I was sweating and panting and my head was pounding. I also do not understand why the two men in my family were not ever available to complete this daunting task. Come on! Thanks Mom - you made me love my life this morning.
With my strength training done for the day, I decided to move onto bigger and better things: overnight oats in MY NEW BREAKFAST MUG FROM ALLIE.
isn't this the most beautious (is that even a word?) mug you have ever seen? Thanks Allie!!!
Speaking of basil, lunch was a tomato and basil quinoa salad inspired by Diana. I made some changes - substituting the millet for quinoa and omitting the chickpeas. This was so nice and refreshing on such a hot summer day. I love cold salads - I will definitely be making this again!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post - I am having an EPIC breakfast tomorrow!!! I am so excited!
Question: How are your sleeping habits? Are you a light sleeper? A heavy sleeper? Do you get about the same amount every night? How do you cope when you are exhausted?
