Get Happy... neeeeeed energy!!

Get Happy Challenge Day2

I snoozed the alarm. I really didn't want to but the sleepy me said "no, it's not time yet". But I was up at 6:10 and that's a mark, start small, stay focused.
So yesterday Melissa decided to try the switch from coffee to tea. I figured I'd try as well. So I made my tea this morning... with cinnamon, I just read about all these crazy benefits of cinnamon. Tea is half the caffeine. I wonder how many I will need. Is tea better than coffee? The stats vary. Caffeine is a much needed drug in my life, it's a natural treatment for ADHD, which I'm convinced I have. Well we will see how I feel after a few days.
Today's focus is natural energy. If I'm cutting coffee, I might need to supplement my energy intake.

  • Bee pollen happens to be the first thing I stumbled upon, that's weird I have never heard that and I can't think for the life of me where I have ever seen bee pollen? Not jumping on that one.
  • Water: This I can do, need to do. I never drink enough, I vow to start now!
  • Afternoon energy snacks: whole grain crackers with low fat cheese or peanut butter on whole grain bread
  • High Fiber, High Carb Breakfast: whole wheat toast or high fib cereal 
Omg this is all making me tired. Time to go run!

OK back... 1.12 mi run. Yay!!
  • Nuts: energy... blah blah
Let's see goal: Remember to buy cat litter and clean the cat box before the day is out. Even better get tiny trash can to scoop litter into daily and do that!

Ugh I don't feel like writing, can you tell by all the choppiness, Sorry :(
Gotta shower and get to work. Feeling good... ish

Here's a good thought:

"Everyday, think as you wake up, ‘today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’ " Dalai Lama 

I thought this appropiate...
Funny Confession Ecard: I'm trying to be awesome today but I'm exhausted from being so freakin' awesome yesterday!

BTW whats's up with the flaming tornado? Is that an environmental first?

*What is the Get Happy Challenge? It is a totally made up challenge between me and my best-ie, Melissa, to motivate each other to get and be happier mommies by Xmas.
