Happy Monday, Fancy Oatmealites!
I’m proud to say that I was successful at accomplishing all of my April goals yesterday:
- I ran 5 miles, scratching off my “Long Run” of the week
- I completed a round of the “14 Day Abs Challenge” both Sunday and this morning
- I read the entire prologue of the second book in the Game of Thrones series, A Clash of Kings: A Song of Ice and Fire.
I did not run this morning, but I had not planned on it; I switched my Friday Rest Day to today. And here’s why:
I feel as though I have seen more daylight this weekend than most. For some odd reason, I woke up at my usual, weekday time on Saturday morning (4am – don’t judge me) and stayed awake until 10pm. No naps. No caffeine after 10am. No sense at all. Sunday morning I woke up around 8am, so I guess I caught up on my sleep from the previous night, but this put me in a damn disadvantage for Sunday night. Typically, I fall asleep around 9ish, but last night I was staring at the clock until well past 11:30.
I’m like a damn newborn: I can’t get on a regular sleeping pattern to save my life these days. I wish I had someone to read me stories until I fell asleep.
Perfect. And if that doesn’t work, I’m sure staying awake for 28 hours in a row at a middle/high school lock-in should do the trick.
What do you do when you have trouble sleeping?
Lie there in agony and count the number of minutes I might be able to get if I go to sleep RIGHT NOW.
