Night Time Terrors

13 Aug

Have you ever ate something just a little too late at night knowing it’s going to have some kind of effect on you, but you do it anyway.  Well, that was me last night with the Sunbutter.  I was watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics and my stomach was growling.

I tried a handful of grapes.

“Not happy.”

I tried a big glass of water?

“I’m sorry, try again.”

I eventually gave in for a spoonful of Sunbutter.  My husband is allergic to peanuts, so this is a rare treat when on hand.  Pushing 9:00 PM, I sat and licked my spoon while watching the British Invasion in Olympia form.

My stomach was happy, but I knew I had a rough night ahead of me.

My husband called me at work this morning to inform me of my “clinging and babbling” in bed last night.  Oops.  I told him about my night terrors only for him to jokingly tell me that he thought I was speaking another man’s name.  Hm, should I tell him that my night terrors actually reflected my childhood fear of talking dolls?  (Oh, Child’s Play, how you have scared me for life.)  Nah, I’ll let him squirm a little more.


Breakfast came in the form of leftover Sweet Potato Hash from Saturday’s breakfast minus the dippy egg.  Recipe to come.  This one is a keeper!  I also ate a banana on the side with a small cup of coffee.

Lunch came in the form of easy, Crock Pot Salsa Chicken over a bed of greens, green grapes and yogurt.  Yum!

My back it still sore from my 3 mile trail run last night with Ed.  Not sure what I did, but it was not happy this morning.  Hoping for a nice stretch packed workout this afternoon

See you then!

Questions of the Afternoon:

Are you affected by late night eating terrors?  What foods make you squirm all night?
