I have to admit, I am one of THOSE people. A morning person. I get up, grab that shower and I am ready to face the day and my to-do list. I don’t need coffee or caffeine, just a nice shampoo and conditioner, (note to self, buy more shampoo) and I am good to go.

My brain wakes up almost as fast as I do, which makes those middle of the night bathroom runs challenging as I need to get out of bed, pee, wash hands and get back into bed before my brain fully engages. If it does, I am screwed, because instead of falling back to sleep, I begin to think of all the things I need to do. (note to self, update to-do list)
I am also a breakfast person. Breakfast is a little more challenging now that I am trying to stay Paleo, but I am weaning myself onto the meat and veggie breakfast concept.

But I always try to remember the following:
