Getting more sleep!


Do you get enough sleep? Or do you wake up tired and want to hit snooze a million times?


Sleep when the baby sleeps doesn’t always work!!


… and in this case when the dog sleeps.

At least Ava thinks it’s funny!

I haven’t been able to control my sleep for the last 3 months so I have no choice.. it is all up to MISS AVA!! I am happy to say that last night she slept for 7 hours 15 minutes! Woohoo… and yes I count the 15 minutes. They all count! She has been sleeping longer stretches at night for the past week and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we are turning the corner here.

Since having a baby, I cherish any sleep I get! I really haven’t had an issue getting up with her when she needs to in the middle of the night but I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy these longer stretches.

Getting better sleep has increased my energy, my productivity and my overall happiness! :)

This morning we were up at 530am …not bad.. and after I fed Ava, I actually had time to sit down and eat a quick breakfast. Scrambled eggs with mushrooms, peppers & onions. It was delicious


Although I didn’t need the coffee to wake me up, I enjoyed an Iced French Vanilla coffee.. it was a nice treat!


After breakfast I headed to work. I love training and it feels good to be back! This afternoon I have my first physical therapy session and I am looking forward to it. I am excited to get some feedback on my progress.

 Question of the day: Are you getting enough sleep? if you aren’t, why?
