Katie- Up to no good...

Mondays are rough for me. The day begins around 4 am after not much sleep the night before because I try to put off the work week as much as possible ie fight sleep Sunday night. So yes, up at 4 am, 2 hour drive and then 8 muck-mouth marines. By the time the work day is over, so am I. I drank water today but I also had some Starbucks (bad carmel macchiato BAD)
I did make it to the grocery store and picked out healthy choices for the week.. ingredients for green smoothies, a quinoa salad and a chickpea salad. YUM! Looking forward to trying it all.
I did enjoy Amanda's weight lose story. Its amazing for her to able to go from a 10/12 (where I am right now) to 4/6 (where I have NEVER been). That calorie counter website she listed sounded helpful.. so for the next 4 days I want to try to count my calories as well as 1 hour of cardio plus my dvds.

Also I don't understand how I can feel exhausted ALL day and then am not able to sleep early OR at my bedtime.. ideas?
Happy Health Fam!


  1. Katie - perhaps you should try multivitamins - Costco has some chewable, gummy ones that look good. Love you, Mom

  2. Hi Katie, you might try Gui Pi Wan ( It's an herbal formula specifically recommended for a pattern of fatigue with insomnia. One of the main ingredients, Suan Zao Ren, is very good for helping the body achieve REM sleep. Also, it's not very pricey if you get it at the source I linked you.
