My New Year’s Resolution of adopting the 9:00-5:00 sleep schedule has fallen by the wayside. I think it’s been about two weeks since I’ve been early to bed, early to rise. Last night it was midnight by the time I turned out the lights….I was up at 6:38…… But I’m not giving up! I really want 9 to 5!


Breakfast: Fresh juice (5 carrots, 1/2 grapefruit, 1 green apple). I’ll never put grapefruit in my juice again. It made the drink quite bitter!…….Later, a bowl of Bear Naked Granola with soymilk (part of which I managed to spill all over the car on my way to the bus stop).

Still a lot of milk left though!

Ready for Sunday Brunch!

Not too shabby.

My shoulder is feeling better, still a bit tight and sore, but overall ok. I said I would share the story behind the mystery injury, so here it is:

I left my friend’s house late Thursday night and was putting a few things into the car. It was dark and quiet, so I got a little worked up and the paranoid thoughts began darting through my head. A few years ago I was mugged in a stairwell of an NYC apartment. It was scary to say the least. Anyway, that experience has made me a little jumpy when I’m alone and not at home. Not all the time, but sometimes. Thursday night was one of those sometimes. So I started to tense up, shoving my things into the backseat and hopping into the car. I reached for the door fast and slammed. Then OW. Tense muscles + fast movement = pulled shoulder.

I know. Boo hoo. On to food.

Breakfast: We’re meeting friends at 11:00 am for brunch at Eastside Cafe (this place gets two greenthumbs up!). But I woke up hungry and wanted a little something to tide me over. I had one cup of  organic low-fat vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup of Yogi Granola Crisps.

The Yogi Crisps were on sale at Whole Foods for $3. Sweet & crunchy.

I’m a Fage fan. No muss, no fuss—no added flavors or sugars. It’s the only yogurt we really buy. But a friend is doing a vegan cleanse and gave us all of her dairy! We scored some Stoneyfield Low-Fat French Vanilla yogurt; not bad.

Doesn’t food feel fancier when it’s served it a wine glass? Classy, classy. 🙂

Must do dishes, get dressed, and go.
