So I'm taking the sleep challenge and we have to journal 3x a week...
but haven't been doing that well.
Being sick, I stay up and wait til I'm exhausted before I go to sleep. I just want to pass out...
But today I feel so much better.
I know that it is going to get better.
So here goes....
What time did you wake up today?
almost 9 a.m.
What time are you lying down to go to sleep?
Probably at 10 p.m. (it's 8:40 now)
What, if any, was your bedtime routine?
up on the computer, then shower, then bed.
What were the last food(s) you consumed tonight? (Include type, amount, and time you ate.)
I had dinner over 2 hours ago... but now I'm going to take my cleanse formula that consists of 4 herbal caps and a tbs of psyllium husk powder.
Did you exercise today? (Include the type, duration, and time of day if you exercised.)
Yes. Only 45 minutes worth of walking. It was 3:45 - 4:30 p.m.
