My insomnia is back. I haven't slept well for a couple of weeks now. When I first joined SP , 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 , so I got up a 4 am and went to bed at 7:30 pm to be asleep by 8 pm. This worked very well for me. Then, I got lazy and started sleeping in on the weekends. 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.
