Holly woke me up at 2:30 am this morning. I think she is starting to get her upper teeth. Oh fun! But I did notice that I bounced out of bed once she fell back asleep (3:30am) and I have been moving ever since. I never have an abundance of energy this early in the am usually. I think it has to do with getting back on track with my eating. What a world of difference.
In other news, I have been craving more fruits and veggies. I think it has something to do with my new mind trick. I am such a visual person. If I see a commercial for a specific food, restaurants, people eating something that looks or smells good, I start to crave it and slowly get this overwhelming need to consume have what I have seen. So I thought that if I surrounded myself with visuals of fresh fruit and veggies that this power of suggestion would start working in my favor. I took an advertisement I received in the mail from Target. They have expanded their stores in CA to include a larger grocery section, without turning into a full "Super Target". Well the ads have these beautiful pictures of super fresh fruits, veggies, etc. I keep one on my fridge and in my living room. I glance at them all the time and the next thing I know when I am hungry for a snack I find myself having cravings for grapes, or mandarin oranges. It is great!
It is now 5am and time for my 2 hour nap before I have to get up again and get ready for work.
