Like a ton of other high school & college aged kids, I've spent a good portion of my life with a screwy sleep schedule. I remember in high school, one of my teachers turned to our class and said, "If you're getting more than 4 hours of sleep a night, either you're doing something wrong, or I'm not giving you enough homework."
Later, sleep was what happened after you ran out of things to do. I have a sweatshirt from high school that says "Sleep is for the weak" and then another little poster that was given to me as a gift. It says, "Coffee: You can sleep when you're dead."
So, it shouldn't be a surprise to me that I have difficulty with sleep. I always feel like there are better uses of my time than sleep. But once I crash, I don't want to get up. So it's a pretty terrible cycle.
This week's sleeping has been worse than usual. I think a large part of it is stress--it's hard to "turn off."
On the plus side, I've been so busy that I haven't been snacking and so I've dropped a couple pounds this week :) I'm almost back to where I was before my scale fiasco! So overall, it's a pretty okay week. My belt can be tightened one more notch constantly, so that's some visual proof I'm gettin there :)
This week my biggest goal is to get to sleep at a reasonable time. Second goal is to get my work done when I say I'm gonna get it done some I'm not quite as stressed.
