It Crept Back In
I didn’t sleep well last night at all. I feel like I was only getting twenty-minute spurts and there were some crazy dreams thrown in as well. I blame it on all the sugar I ate last night. Between handfuls of cinnamon chocolate chips (amazing), fruit, and dried mango, my body was a little overloaded.
I learned when I did a little detox back in January that I feel better and sleep better when I have less sugar – artificial and real – in my diet. Lately it’s been creeping back in with stevia in my breakfasts, more mid-day Vitamin Waters, gum, and then lots of after dinner snacking. I am going to make a conscious effort to slowly try to reduce my intake again. I don’t think it’s practical for me to maintain a diet completely free of sugars, but cutting back on the chocolate chips at night should help:)
Since I didn’t sleep well I was a bit nervous about my run this morning. For the first time since last fall I ran outside before work. It felt so good to start my day in the outdoors instead of on the treadmill, and it’s always nice to be able to get ready at home.
I ran my usual loop but in the opposite direction…trippy. I guess all the sugar last night was still in my system because it fueled me through 7 miles! Bringing my Camelbak for water helped too since it was already pretty warm.
I’d been eying this flowy white top at Gap for a while, but they never had my size. Two weeks ago I popped in and found it in my size – and on sale! Awesome:)
I also brought out one of my favorite pairs of summer heels. These gladiator style sandals are from Target (last year) and are SO comfy. <3.
On the way to work I had to drop my car off to get repaired after my little accident a few weeks ago. They’ll have it all week, so I am now the proud rental owner of a Chevy Malibu. I’ve never driven anything other than a Camry so it feels weird! I like it though.
Fun Fact: Did you know that there is a little arrow near the fuel level indicator on the dashboard that tells you what side of the car the gas tank is on?
Not really going along with my ditch the sugar efforts, I had overnight oats sweetened with stevia. It’s just so good! Perhaps I’ll just try to reduce the amount of stevia I use in them…
This week is a bit more relaxed which is a nice after last week’s business. Hoping to get lots done!
- What kind of car do you drive? Have you always driven that model?
