Good morning! Happy Monday! I’m off to a my first day in a week-long Research rotation. My body might be a little tired, but my brain feels recharged after enjoy a sort of lazy Sunday.

Though few dietetic internship programs offer any payment or health insurance, I can’t help thinking it would be nice to receive a sleep hygiene stipend. I don’t even want to think about how much I’ve spent on melatonin, dyphenhydramine, and lavender over the past 11 months!

Oats wtih flax, spinach, green onion, and turkey bacon topped with goat cheese and a poached egg.

Sunday morning, I woke up a little before 4 a.m. for no reason. After 2 hours, I just gave in and got up, figuring I’d just pretend I was having a normal day. And eventually take a nap. So yeah…after a workout, weird-savory breakfast happened.

I also lost the better part of my morning to Season 7 of How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I eventually rallied enough to meet a classmate for coffee so we could chat about intern graduation stuff, but wow. I felt like I had jet-lag or something.

Sleeplessness is totally awesome (not) when you’re trying to stay well, but hey, at least I don’t have to be in until 9 a.m. all week! Small blessings, people, small blessings.

What are you small blessings for the week? What was your last lazy day like?
