I think I've mentioned I've been having troubles sleeping and it caught up to me a few days ago. I woke up and just felt awful yesterday. Sore throat, totally run down. I managed to get in my normal running but I think it made it worse. I was tutoring in the afternoon and if you've ever seen that hotel commercial where the guy has a battery over his head, I felt like my battery was flashing red - critical level. I was picturing it as I tutored, draining, draining, draining. Last night I attempted to go to bed drug free (the night before I had tylenol PM and felt like I was having contractions and felt really messed up from it and I HATE taking medication) just after 9:30 and I tossed and turned until midnight, when I went to get some benadryl to help me sleep. I slept till about 530, which I think is what time I wake up naturally every morning now that it is light out, but I went back to sleep until 7:30.
I woke up and still felt awful! I tried to sleep during Nick's naps today with no luck. Things have just been running through my mind and I can't just fall asleep. It's awful because I am totally run down. I know that I am not feeling well when I can't motivate to get in a workout - that always makes me feel better, but I had no energy today. This morning I downed a couple of berry smoothies with orange juice and greens + to get some nutrients and soothing for my throat and had some soup later in the day.
I managed to make some graham crackers this afternoon from this recipe that Chari shared with me. They turned out well! It was the first time I used sucanat and I know nothing about it: I went in blind on this one. Is it better than brown sugar or sugar? What are its benefits?

I want to try this peanut butter graham cracker recipe next!
Did you hear about the later registration date of the Boston marathon? I'd love for you to comment on my article! :)
