I made my way to bed by 7:30 and was probably asleep by 8:15pm last night. I did end up having some salad, with cold pressed olive oil, 1/2 clove pressed garlic, Bragg's apple cider vinegar, sea salt, 1/2 avocado, black olives and chicken breast. It was pretty darned tasty.
I milked last night because the wind was blowing so hard, and it was so cold I knew it was going to be really hard to milk at 3:30am (we only milk once every 24 hours. I usually milk in the morning from about April until November, then afternoons. In order to “switch” we milk morning and afternoon, and then the girls don't have to wait 36 hours).
I woke naturally at 4:25am. Ds2 had already left for work. Dh was still asleep (unusual for him as he is usually up by 2:30-3am, but he didn't any jobs scheduled today so I guess he slept in).
I didn't have to leave until 5am (or thereabouts) so I started to get ready. I showered last night also so I didn't have to do that this morning.
I warmed up my cup of broth and drank that warm just before I left. I had a handful of cashews upon arriving at work.
I brought leftover salad (the same as last night) for my food today.
Perhaps because I got caught up on my sleep this weekend, or maybe because I woke naturally, I am wide awake this morning. I think my dark circles are even much lighter. I did not have any dairy at all yesterday, nor bread products/gluten. Could that be part of it. It was really nice to not be falling asleep on the hour long drive.
