I was having a pretty crappy day last week. We’re going through the dreaded 4 month sleep regression- the one that everyone talks about and that I was crossing my fingers to avoid. Nope. Didn’t avoid. We are right in the thick of it actually. And so lack of sleep and feeling sorry for myself equated to my being in all sorts of a funky funk. I hadn’t worked out that day either, and so as I was sitting there I thought to myself, “Self, you should work out.” And so I did. And wouldn’t you know, that funk was turned right around! I felt more energized and much happier once I completed that workout! So. I believe in the power of a good workout, I really do. And the next time you’re in a funk, I highly suggest you get a good sweat in! You might be surprised at how much better you feel afterward.
A favorite breakfast of mine recently has been fresh fruit with greek yogurt and a side of flaxseed toast with peanut butter. We bought a cantaloupe and I literally cannot get enough of it. Also, grapes. I can’t stop eating all of the grapes. I’m really weird with my fruit, and I go in waves of being OBSESSED-OMG-I-MUST-EAT-IT-ALL-OF-THE-TIME with various fruits. Right now? It’s grapes. They’re just SO GOOD. And I froze them for the first time, after having heard everyone tell me how good frozen grapes are and yeah. Everyone is right. Frozen grapes are the bomb.com. Do it.
Speaking of yummy breakfast, have you heard of Love Grown foods? I was recently sent a few of their products to sample, and ohhh em geeee, LOVE! Don’t freak out, but their cereal is made out of, wait for it…. beans! Yes, beans, as in lentils and garbanzo beans and navy beans. Yeah, I know. It’s kinda weird, but honestly, it tastes good! And plus, it’s super good for you, since you know, it’s made out of beans and all. I also am a big fan of their oatmeal and granola. But I’m a big fan of all oatmeal and granola, so it wasn’t too hard to win me over in that respect. ;)
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
What are some ways you get yourself out of a funk?
