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!

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
•
Blend:
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
•
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
•
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
