Sleeping Beauty

Do you ever have one of those mornings where you stay in bed 15 minutes longer than you really should? That has been a reoccurring problem for me my whole life. No matter how early I go to bed or how much sleep I get, it's always a struggle to get up in the morning. Even as a kid, I remember my dad coming into my room and flipping the light switch on and off in an attempt to get me moving. And by the way, the light switch in my room was not a normal light switch, it was a thunder light switch. It did not turn on and off silently like most light switches do. This sucker was LOUD! And then when I was in college I spent a summer with Aunt J and Uncle K. The only thing that got me out of bed then was the threat of Uncle K busting through the door and literally jumping on the bed until I got up. I just don't know why people won't let me ease into the day.

Anyway. Today was another one of those days. Now that I'm juicing, my morning routine is 30 minutes longer than it used to be. You can imagine my thrill when my alarm clock chirps. I made it work this morning (by cutting out ironing my whole shirt - hot tip: if you wear a sweater, you only have to iron the front of your shirt), but I need to get it together tomorrow.  

Tonight I have prepped my fruits and veg for juicing, so tomorrow (when I inevitably stay in bed 15 extra minutes) my juicing routine will take less than half the normal time. What a yummy breakfast! And look at all those vibrant colors!

cucumber, carrot, ginger, radish, celery, beet, kale, spinach, parsley, apple

  1. I definitely have had a morning where I just didn't want to but I did. Keep going. And I do love the colors.
