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, … Continue reading Week 10 – Day 2: Sleep is Lovely
Independence Day. The day America turns 243 years old. I'm not going to get political, but while she ain't perfect, I'm still proud to be an American. And I'm proud of how well I did on my first day of the four day weekend. First of all, I slept great. Sleep is so important and … Continue reading Week 1 – Day 4: Independence Day
Oh how I wish I could have slept in Saturday morning. I don't always want to sleep in... okay, that is a lie. I always want to sleep in but I almost never get to. Waking up before 5 AM during the week and then doing karate or races on Saturday limits me to one … Continue reading Days 321 & 322… Crazy Woman!
...sleep necessary... unable to comply. This is what I felt like on Wednesday. Gidget has to be one of the cutest most lovable dogs I've ever seen but she - unfortunately - wasn't a sleeper. Tuesday night was nothing but a fight with me and the dog. She wanted to be in our bed but … Continue reading Day 311… Does Not Compute
I most certainly did not sleep very well last night. And it sucks how much sleep matters. It would be nice if we could evolve into a species that doesn't need sleep or only needs to sleep for a few minutes each day to keep going. That would make things better in almost every aspect. … Continue reading Day 297… So Sleepy
I already confessed to screwing up over the holiday so there is no need for me to go into that. I'm just going to go right along with picking up where I left off. Monday is always a stinker and after having nearly 2 weeks away from work it is even worse. Add on top … Continue reading Day 239… The New Year Day 1
Is it technically winter yet? I could have sworn that stuff officially happens in the middle of December but I've never paid that much attention. I live in Utah where it snows in July and you can walk around in shorts in winter. Either way, it was the last of my lazy days. I actually … Continue reading Day 208, 209 & 210… The Lazy Days of Winter
As one might have expected after walking about 32 miles in a day... I was pooped on Monday. Not just I-want-to-be-lazy kind of pooped, but full-blown I don't want to do anything kind of pooped. It all started when I woke up. As soon as my alarm went off (I got to sleep in … Continue reading Day 204… Sleeeeep
It's crazy just how much a night of not being able to sleep can change your attitude. I'm certainly not a morning person (my 7 years of graveyard shift can attest to that) but I normally am up-and-at-'em as soon as my alarm goes off. I look forward to getting to work and getting it … Continue reading Day 93… Who Needs Sleep?
