I don’t really talk about my sleeping habits much because it’s not in the scope of Food & Fitness that I typically try to stay to (puppies count though). Any who I am a terrible sleeper, I am lucky if I sleep for more than 4 hours with out waking up and then it takes me a while to get back to bed. I have gotten used to it so I am pretty good at functioning on just a little bit of sleep. Well yesterday at work my energy level was at 0 and then when my alarm went off at 6:15 this morning I realized that I would not be able to function unless I kept sleeping. I called in to work and told them I would be staying home and then I slept until 10am. This is HUGE for me. Never ever happens.
So I woke up, made some paleo pancakes with figs.I love how 2 eggs, a banana, and whatever else you want to flavor the pancakes with makes so many pancakes! So delicious! I went with coconut flakes, pumpkin pie spice, and figs for this batch. I then proceeded out to the porch and continued to sleep on and off until 3pm. Arlington was sitting at a wonderful 55 degrees today so with the sun on me I fell right asleep.Once I woke up I felt amazing and knew that I needed to get out there and run. I had three miles on the books for today and ended up doing 5. I wore a heart rate monitor for the first time today running and am planning on starting to use it more frequently. There is a ton you can learn about through a heart rate monitor and I plan on utilizing mine from now on! In other news I was featured in a guest post on a friends blog and you should probably check it out. The title is “No Excuses Play Like a Champion“, while you are over there take some time to look around Kayla’s blog. She has some killer work outs and she is currently prego and still kicking ass and taking names. It’s pretty impressive.

Q: When is the last time you needed a mental health day?
Q: Where you able to get outside in this incredible weather today?
Q: How many hours a night do you sleep? I normally try to get to bed by 10-12 and I wake up at 6:15. I wake up 3 – 4 times a night though!
