I am not sleeping much lately. Too much coffee? Working out late at night? Worried about everything under the sun? Yep. Yep. And yep. I am trying so hard to lose weight and I know that sleep is important. Especially when it comes to weight loss, but sometimes I go through phases where I don’t feel there is enough hours in the day/week/month. I jogged 2 miles at 130 am. Don’t worry, I wasn’t outside.:) I ordered some cards, I cleaned my kitchen counters, and I am watching the last episode of season 6 of Burn Notice. See, I am being productive.
I want to be the kind of person that goes to bed at 10 and wakes up at 6 am all chipper and ready for the day. But my dream life would be go to sleep at 3 and wake up at 10 or 11. I just feel so energized and happy and ready to roll at night. When I was an early 20 something, I worked as a credit card processor from 10 pm until 6 am. I am not that kind of night person. I don’t want to stay up all night 40 hours a week. There are some nights that I go to sleep at 12 or 1 am. So I can be normal, sometimes.
I feel like caffeine, plus my ADD (not diagnosed but I swear it is real) and my desire to get so much done messes with my sleep. I literally crash around 4 pm until 6 pm some days face down on the bed and that makes the cycle repeat itself all over again. I said I was going to chill on the naps and coffee for awhile because A-I have kidney issues if I have too much caffeine and B-because it messes with my sleep flow. But, Starbucks is our social spot. We go chill with the fun baristas and listen to the groovy music and get work done. And my bed is my happy place when I am worn the heck out after too many restless nights.
Anyway, I am going to try hard this week to drink coffee half as much and do all of my workouts before before 12 am:). I hope that whatever your sleep schedule is, that you are happy and that you are productive and working towards doing whatever makes you fulfilled and content. Signing off at 3:13 am!
