Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Forgot to fill this out last night. Instead of a questionnaire, I'm just creating a checklist/info sheet of the questions asked on the Sleep Challenge.

I woke up 9am on the dot. I took my resting heart rate. It's 65bpm two days in a row. (I believe the exercise is helping bring it down).
I went to sleep about 2:15am.

Bedtime Routine: I didn't get my fitness minutes in until late (between 11pm and 1am). Added to my fitness tracker and pretty much fell into bed. (a good thing!)

Last foods eaten: I nibbled on some chicken breast while putting it away before my exercise (around 11pm). Drank water during and after exercise.

Exercise: Jillian Michael's Fat Blast workout (kickboxing circuit), 2 power yoga routines, 1 relaxing cooldown stretch, 1 yoga routine geared for PCOS, a little bit of line dancing old-school and belly dance moves. 93 minutes/approx. 1194 calories burned

No alcohol (ever), soda or tea
No supplements today or meds

Nap: rested my eyes for 5-10 minutes in afternoon.

No stress

1.How long did it take you to fall asleep last night?
I went to sleep within minutes, no feelings of high blood pressure, and no heart palpitations. My heart was calm.

2. How many times did you wake up during the night? (Include times you woke up and how long you stayed awake.)
I didn't wake up until 9am on the dot.

3. Total hrs. sleep:
7 hrs, 10 min. approx.

Sleep Quality overall (on scale from 1-5):
a 4....high. The exercise helped once again. I felt even more regulated than the night before last. Feel motivated to keep exercising.
