sleep quote

I cannot believe it, but I actually got 2 1/2 hours of sleep last night. At 3 am, I was pretty certain that I was going to just throw in the towel and start my day… but no, I got back into bed praying for a miracle of a couple of hours of sleep. I am blessed. I mean that in all seriousness. I was fully prepared to gear up for an exhausting day today. Granted, I will likely still be exhausted. Is 2 hours of sleep enough for the human body to maintain wellness? No. However, I have learned, through months of difficulty sleeping, that not only can I survive with less than optimal sleep, I can also THRIVE. It’s all about mindset. Right now, I can choose to feel like crap… and then act crappy all day OR I can decide that today will be a good and healthy day and move on from that mental space.

Right now, I am choosing gratitude for 2 1/2 beautiful hours of sleep!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
