These next few weeks are going to be jam-packed chocolate-syrup packed with healthy dessert posts. The recipe creations keep piling up faster than I can write posts for ’em. So hold on–you’re in for a chocolate-y ride!
Sleep? What’s that?
Usually, I get a good eight hours of sleep every night, but lately I’ve just not been able to sleep well. I blame it on the blog! In the last few months, my blog’s readership has increased, and the more people who read my blog, the more I want to make it something worth reading. My own excitement feeds off of yours: When you’re excited about a post, it makes me excited about it… and then I’m excited to think up more posts!
Like with those Cake Batter Doughnuts.
It’s an awesome feeling, putting one’s heart and soul into a blog post, then getting such energetic, positive responses to that hard work. I’m so excited about future posts—dreaming up new recipes, planning the posts in my head, taking photos–that I cannot sleep! Falling asleep is okay, but I keep waking up so early. And even if it’s four o’clock in the morning, going back to sleep is out of the question because I’m already wide awake, wanting to run downstairs to work on a new idea.
So now you know the reason, if you saw me on Twitter yesterday at 4:30 am, yammering about chocolate-chip blondies.
I feel like the character from George of the Jungle (anyone see that movie?) after he eats an entire box of coffee grinds… or, like I’ve downed four bottles of Red Bull (I’ve actually never tried Red Bull). The weirdest part is that I do not feel tired at all. I’m hoping it doesn’t catch up with me. Maybe I just need less sleep now that it’s getting warmer? People sleep more in the wintertime, right? People and bears!
Next week’s schedule:
(subject to change)
- Monday: They’re not Cake Pops…
- Tuesday: It involves chocolate. And cookie dough.
- Wednesday: I want to feature YOU
- Thursday: A new pancake recipe
After that, sky’s not the limit: healthy blondies, ice creams, pumpkin pie fudge… and I still want to post those “skinny” fudge babies!
How much sleep do you usually get?
And do you wake up naturally or use an alarm clock?
I’m a big believer in the idea of listening to one’s body. If my body tells me I want chocolate pie for breakfast, I’ll listen. (Please, body, can you tell me this more often?) Same thing goes for sleep: I don’t know why, but my body seems to be telling me it doesn’t require eight hours of sleep at the moment. So, unless I start to feel lethargic and grouchy from lack of sleep, I’m going to try and not worry about this new trend. I have bigger things to think about…
Like Monday’s post. Here’s a chocolate preview.
