15/366 SLEEP... sleep... ZZZzzzZZZ

Hello there.

I hope you got a chance to read my blog post that just went up not too long ago. It was something I have been working on for a few days, but something I felt really needed to be said.

There is something else I plan on posting on that might be a bit controversial. For those of you who know me well (and most of you do because I wear my heart on my sleeve) I hate confrontation. So we will see how that all goes.

SO this morning I was supposed to get up early and go do my baseline for CrossFit. I did not go. Due to other circumstances I am VERY tired-all because of the detox mostly (I am assuming and told by most people). So I slept until 1045.

Then Ben and I went grocery shopping... (Today was grocery day) We got: 1 whole chicken, chicken stock, 3lbs bacon, 3 dozen eggs, basil, 5 tomatoes, 2 heads of garlic, a bag of onions, an eggplant, cheese, 4 limes, roasted red peppers, chipolte seasoning, ground ginger, paprika, tomato paste, coconut aminos and more Olive Oil.

this week's menu is: Make It Paleo Tomato soup with (Ben's creative idea) Eggplant Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, and a Yummy Lime pepper chicken (another of my marinades) served with a form of chipolte mayo (home made for the first time). We will see how it all turns out.

After shopping we went to Ben's Mom's house where we had lunch. Ben ate left over crab legs with butter and I had left over taco meat with cheese and salsa... SO GOOD.

We played with clay! :) CLAY!!! Wanna see what I made? (Ben made a 1-up mushroom that got squashed by falling off of the table.) I made an Armadillo and a flower... :)

 This is an armadillo-believe it or not.
My flower-I hope it actually works out... its so pretty. 

That was fun. We had a good time. I had a really hard time there because I knew there were so many foods I "wanted" to eat but couldn't/shouldn't. I felt kinda like I would expect an alcoholic to feel in a bar. It was really hard. Not to mention at about 2pm I started yawning and getting really tired again. Ben asked if I wanted to go home and take a nap and I said that would be really nice. So we did. 

I took a 1.25 hr nap and really enjoyed it. It helped loads. My sweet dear friend Mimi continues to tell me that it is part of the Detox. And Ben is so understanding and compassionate... he just lets me sleep. 

I worked tonight and then when I got home we had eggs and bacon... all of which were AMAZING!

So that is it for tonight. I hope you have a wonderful night as well!



  1. Yes, Angel, rest. Fuel & rest. Have you made bone broth? Drink that during the day. Might help.
    Take care of yourself. Detox isn't easy, and throw in shark week. It's a recipe for depletion of stores - energy & nutrients. Maybe it's time for a big old steak. :)

    1. LOL! Steak YUM! I will let myself rest. Thank you so much for always caring about me <3
