    I think you must be very caffeine tolerant. No way I would be able to drink even one cup of coffee! I do think it is great that when you woke at 11 pm that you were able to go back to sleep quickly.

    I did the sleep challenge, and I stopped using the tv on my nightstand to fall asleep to. Now I turn it off. I do sleep better, the sleep challenge can really help give you insight to what affects your sleep. Some habits are hard to break, such as caffeine after noon or so. I had to stop having the afternoon coffee and caffeinated diet coke. Habits can be changed, I did learn that. It's a tradeoff for better sleep.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, IT'S A GOOD CHALLENGE. emoticon

Official Better Sleep Challenge - Day 3

Saturday, October 20, 2012

I'm sleeping better: 8 hours Thursday night and 5 hours last night. I'm keeping a private journal per the challenge next to my bedside. I drank too much coffee yesterday. I need to establish a bedtime routine to get myself ready for sleep.

    The journal is great. It really helped me when I did that challenge.

Official Better Sleep Challenge - Day 1

Thursday, October 18, 2012

My insomnia is back. emoticon I haven't slept well for a couple of weeks now. When I first joined SP emoticon , I made sleeping 8 hours per night a Fastbreak Goal. I went to bed at the same time and got up at the same time each day, including the weekends. I wanted to workout before it got hot emoticon, so I got up a 4 am emoticon and went to bed at 7:30 pm emoticon to be asleep by 8 pm. This worked very well for me. Then, I got lazy and started sleeping in on the weekends. emoticon This has been my downfall! Now, I'm going to bed too early, waking in the middle of the night, going back to bed, sleeping late and missing my workouts and it has become habit. Today I decided enough was enough. I did something positive about it and joined the Official Better Sleep Challenge. First things first, I'm keeping a sleep journal to see where all I'm going wrong so that I can fix it. I want to start getting up early again to workout. I want to get out of this morning exercise slump. emoticon emoticon

    I need to join the Official Better Sleep Challenge. Where can I go to find out about that? I have had a problem with insomnia for years. I really need to do what you are doing and go to bed and get up at the same time and see if that helps.

Thanks for sharing this blog!

  I sometimes have trouble with sleep. It doesn't get any easier as I grow older.
