I must say, it is quite nice waking up during the week at a later time than normal.  I am usually awake before 4:00 AM in order to get ready to get to the gym.  But the last couple of days I’ve been able to sleep in.  One day was a holiday in the states, and the other day I slept in because I didn’t go to the gym.  And I thoroughly enjoyed it.

To be fair, I did not sleep very well Monday night.  I have no idea why.  Sometimes I think it is because I am sleeping for too long in one position.  Other times I think I get too warm or too cold.  Or maybe it is my sleep apnea that is the problem.  Regardless, it wasn’t the most restful but it was still nice knowing I had an extra hour of sleep.

I still managed to get over 10,000 steps for the day just doing my normal thing.  I didn’t worry about trying, and certainly didn’t worry about getting steps every hour, but I did focus on my food.  I am back to the intermittent fasting and still enjoy it.  I am just going to have to make it work despite the “take your pill with food” and “you lose muscle if you don’t eat” stuff.  I have seen buff people do intermittent fasting, so it isn’t impossible, I just need to look into it more.

  1. when i did intermittent fasting, the only thing that got me through morning workouts and mornings after workouts was a BCAA supplement. I don’t know exactly how, but it did seem to help…

    1. Yeah, I have been using it for a while. I don’t think it makes much of a difference in my energy level, but I have read it helps prevent muscle loss.
