    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).

    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!

    Chris, I agree that more sleep would certainly help. I am sometimes at the gym until almost 8. My youngest goes to bed at 8pm. My older boys have a 10 pm bedtime. Things don't wind down around my very small ranch until that time. My husband then wanders in and out of our room at all hrs. I could go to bed by nine, but there always seems to be something to door I'm just too pumped from the day.

    So you wake up early to work out and then stay up late to work out? of course I am pretty lazy when it comes to working out, but that sounds like a lot of working out to me. Maybe you can make a deal with the hubs to get everything he needs out of the room before you go to bed or do what I did...I got a cheap box fan and run it on high. That takes care of 2 issues for me-noisy hubby and night sweats! As we get older DH has trouble always feeling cold and I tend to always feel hot, so the fan is a great solution. I put it on my side of the bed but aimed toward my feet.

    My AM daily workout takes 15min and helps me wake up. I only add the gym 3x/week in the evening for weight training 5 different exercises 12 reps, 3 sets. My evening gym workout takes about 30 min, then I chat for the other 30min that I am there. I would not be where I am health and looks wise without it. So I am not willing to give that up.

    We have a white noise machine, but inevitably I wake up when he gets into bed. Or the cats wake me scratching at the door to get in (or out). This week, I think that I discovered that I sleep best alone. I had to sleep in my son's twin for 2 days while my inlaws were in town. However, sleeping in separate beds will not fly in my house and it will convince him that he is right...That I am planning on leaving him. : (
    Last night, I was up until 10:30 trying to convince him that I have no intention of dumping him now that I have changed my life so much. It started when he asked about an xmas present for one of our sons. Apparently I made some kind of face that set him off. I was annoyed, but not at him and tired. Up to that point we had had a great night. We were watching back episodes of Homeland. I don't understand what happened. He is very touchy right now.

    Wow, that was a long answer to a short comment. Sorry Chris.

    I usually sleep better alone. I almost always wake up when Boyfriend comes to bed. Lately, the cat has been more restless at night so I have to get up to let her in, out, or give her a gentle kick to stop scratching at the door. She always follows me for bed, but only sits for a minute (the door has to be closed because Boyfriend has music and lights on in the room across the hall). When the stars are aligned (aka. my health is good and my supplement levels are right, esp. 5-HTP), I can sleep through Boyfriend coming to bed, at least. He likes to snuggle and I like to toss around even though I sleep in the same position every night.

    I hope hubby figures out what's going on with himself soon and stops dumping his stress on you, for you and your family's sake.

    you should know me well enough by now to know I prefer long answers.

    So, I do understand the work out schedule now.

    Yep, sleeping alone is very nice. When we were on Sabbatical, we had 2 twin beds on the floor, next to each other but not quite touching. Best sleep we have ever had as a couple. we snuggled on the one I slept on, then when we were ready to sleep he rolled over onto his twin. That bedroom also had a VERY loud fan. We called it the turbo fan! Our spare bed is the 2 twins set on box springs, but so that it feels like a king I have a layer of the egg crate foam on it, a fairly thin layer of memory foam (2" at the most), and a featherbed topped cover sheet (all from Target) and it has the same effect. Everyone who sleeps in that bed oversleeps. I think having the 2 mattresses keeps the partner's movements contained. Worth considering.
