Good Friday Sparkfriends.
One of my biggest problems is having an irregular daily schedule. I tend to be awake / sleep in 4-5 hr intervals throughout a 24 hr cycle. Because I have a child in the home I get up and I go to bed at "normal" times, but I always wake up around 2:00 AM when my pain medication wears off. Then I'm up for at least 2 hrs because it takes about 60 minutes for me to get relief from my meds... by then I'm usually well into a movie, working on Jewelry, or online. Sometimes I don't go back to sleep until 5:00 AM, Then my kid wakes me up at 8:00 Grrrr! I make up for the lost nightly sleep by taking a 2 hr nap every day, and sometimes a short cat nap before dinner time. It's a difficult schedule to be on, but unfortunately, this is what my mind & body does!!
The middle of the night has been my binge time! Not really a full on binge, but this is when I crave a large sandwich or a large dessert!
Does anyone have insomnia or night time issues like this? I'm wondering how I can manage this so I don't blow my nutrition in the early morning hrs. I'm thinking of adding an extra meal that I can have daily at 2:00 AM to keep me on track.
