Middle of the night eating! Ridiculous!


Monday, January 07, 2013

Last night I could not sleep. I had a cup of coffee about 4 in the afternoon. So...come 2:00am I was still awake. About 4 times I turned off all the lights got covered up and tried to sleep. No go! I'd read for awhile but could not get sleepy....went to the kitchen....bad, bad!

Today I was out at 4:00 pm getting some groceries. I almost got coffee to sit in their little eating area to take 5 minutes for myself. But I got decaf! emoticon

It was WONDERFUL sitting there reading a book! I thoroughly enjoyed my few minutes away from caregiving and chores.

emoticon tonight I'd better get to sleep ! This morning I went to water aerobics and in the afternoon had physical therapy. (I also had to take DH to his PT appointment today.)

    I am very sensitive to caffeine as well. I hope the decaf works out. Anyway, caffeine can dehydrate you and who needs that?! I wish you a good night's sleep.

    I WAS LIKE THAT LAST NIGHT BUT NOT BECAUSE OF CAFFEINE. I COULDN'T GET OUT OF THE BATHROOM AND WAS AFRAID TO FALL ASLEEP FOR FEAR I'D HAVE AN ACCIDENT. LONG NIGHT. BUT I DID SLEEP IN UNTIL 9 THIS MORNING.

  I have had sleep problems for years. I drink Coffee and Water when I'm awake. I did drink Diet Pepsis for Decades too. I quit drinking it except once in while now. Was was to many problems with it. So stay with the Decaf for awhile and see how that works out for you. Hope you get a good night sleep tonight. God Bless You and Have a Great Day. Take Care. Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I didn't sleep much last night either, but it wasn't from coffee. Hopefully tonight will be better for both of us.

    Caffeine is a drug and we become addicted to it. Also, it stays in our bodies far longer than we realize. Drinking even a little caffeine in the morning can affect sleep for days. Since it is a drug it also has side effects that would seem unrelated. The best idea is to wean yourself off caffeine totally and if you want coffee to have decaf all the time. Go a few months without any significant caffeine and you'll feel like a different person.

Hey, it might even help you avoid evening eating because you'll be tired and ready to sleep instead of awake and wandering the house looking for something to do.

    Very smart to choose decaf. Sleep is crucial for so many things. Wishing you great sleep tonight.

I used to have a lot of trouble with eating in the middle of the night. You made me stop and think that it's been quite a while since I got up to eat. Thanks for making me aware.

Best wishes for success, including in the middle of the night!!
