    Day 5

    Felt great all day yesterday. The worst of the withdrawal is done. I ate basically the same as the day before minus the nut butter and banana fun. 1600 cals due to the steak.

    I wore my GoWearFit to bed to check on my sleep. I felt as if I was getting better sleep. Well I slept for 5 hrs and 30 min of 5:50 lying down. 95% sleep efficiency. I only woke up twice. One sleep cycle was 4 hrs long. I felt tired when I woke up because I was only 40 minutes into another sleep cycle. Now if I could just be in bed longer. Sigh.

    Paula, I am finding that now that I am forcing myself to be in bed for at least 8 hours that my sleep patterns are starting to settle in and my quality and efficiency are in the 90% range consistently. It is a weird thought though because you would think that if you are consistently in bed for say 6 hours your body would figure it out and get better sleep. But, at least with me, I guess I am over tired when I do that and it hinders a good night sleep.

    I would have to go to bed by 8:30pm in order to get 8 hrs in bed. That is not happening in my world right now. On weekends, my body usually wakes me at around 7 hrs.

    I get up at 4:30 am. Do planks, push ups and 15 minutes of elliptical, Make my breakfast and lunches for me and my youngest, eat, dress and am out the door by 6:45. I tried getting up at 5, but was too stressed out by the lack of time.

    Wow. I could not function like you do on so little sleep I actually go to bed at 8:30 or 9 so that I can get enough sleep and get up early. There's not much that gets in the way of me and my bed (now, if I could actually sleep, and sleep well, for the entire period...I'm scared to think of what an amazing machine I would be).

    Paula, what keeps you from getting in bed at 8:30? Seriously, I would be surprised if sleep, well lack of, isn't the foundation of your issue.

    That is similar to what I'm doing, though using MFP. Simple meals are easier to plan (not to mention track).

    I usually go to bed by 8 in order to get up at 4:30. Lately it's been later... last night I was in bed by 8:30 but didn't turn out the light until 9. I slept okay. Then I'm up before the digital alarm, due to the canine alarm that sleeps in my room. Feed him and the rest of the pack, make breakfast and lunch for me and my hubs, then out the door by... 5 minutes ago. I really should get up a little earlier.

    My goal is to start down time at 7:30p and be in bed by 8pm. My daughter needs to be in bed by 8pm or she does not get enough sleep. I am up at 5:30 and out the door by 6:30am.

    I am up at 5:30, try to get into bed by 9, almost always make it by 9:30. On weekends, I allow myself to stay up later if I get to sleep in, but am working really hard to ensure that I am in bed for 8 hours. I have been averaging about 7.5 hours of actual sleep, and feeling much better for the most part.

    The big thing for me was learning to listen to my body. I start falling asleep between 8 and 8:30 naturally. If I try staying up later I sleep lousy and wake up even earlier than my normal 4:45 (without alarm).
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    I have never been a good sleeper, for reasons that I cannot fathom, do not like going to bed, actually have to make myself do it no matter how tired I am, goofy I know!
