Trying to Stay Awake – Frugal Novice

Trying to Stay Awake

I think I must have complained about being tired a million times today! J woke up scared in the middle of the night, convinced he’d seen something in the shadows. I let him come get in bed with us, because that = everyone back to sleep sooner. Just a couple of hours later C woke up scared because he couldn’t see J, so he came and joined us too. Four people in a queen bed is a little cramped, especially when the boys like to lay horizontally so as to jab both me and Brian at once.

Before I knew it 6:00 had arrived and it was time for me to head to the park to walk. Add last night to the fact that I’ve gotten about 5-6 hours of sleep each night this week, and you’ve got one tired ME! So, now I’m trying my hardest to stay awake and finish this post, because evenings are the best time for me to get blogging done.

Breakfast: Dark Chocolate Muffin with Cream Cheese (370 calories)

Chocolate + Muffin = YUM! I seriously would love for Freshology to have all of their muffins available to purchase for grab-and-go options. I’ve loved them all!

Lunch: Chicken & Wild Rice Soup with Grilled Focaccia Bread (380 calories)

This soup was really good, and was perfectly fitting since we had a cooler weather day! I liked it a lot but it wasn’t especially filling – that would be my only critique.

Dinner: Israeli Couscous and Vegetable Medley with Feta Cheese (570 calories)

I love feta cheese, so I was hopeful that I’d enjoy this, and I did for the most part. It was a unique flavor combination for me so might take me a little getting used to.

Dessert: Chocolate Zucchini Bundt (140 calories)

More chocolate – you won’t hear me complaining about that! A great cake that’s just the right level of sweetness.

Aaaaaaaaand, I’m out. Hopefully to fall asleep within a few minutes. :)
