For Day Ending 10/19 (Sat) - Sleep Diary

Sunday, October 20, 2013

What time did you wake up today? 9:45-9:50am

What time are you lying down to go to sleep? 2:30 am (ended up not going to bed at the time I thought because I started cutting out words for my latest journal project and lost track of time.)

What, if any, was your bedtime routine? - Pills, moisturize, read

What were the last food(s) you consumed tonight? Dinner - Indian - though I can already tell my stomach is a little unsettled. Will take a tums before going to sleep.

Did you exercise today? Yoga, and a set of specific stretches for my shoulders

Did you consume any alcoholic beverages today? Nope

Did you consume any caffeinated drinks or foods today? 2 Cups of coffee - Morning

Did you take any medications (prescription and/or over-the-counter) today? (Standard routine - Yes)

Did you take any naps today? No

What types of stressors did you encounter today, and what types do you expect to encounter tomorrow? -

Working on Kat's necklace is turning into a bit of a challenge, and a struggle to control the perfection freak inside of me and let the creative energy flow out. I had a mild set of stressors today - going out to dinner with two of our friends that I don't normally go out to dinner with, but they invited us. (Dinner and me and small talk - not really good)

Tomorrow - need to do more than a few hours of work. I really need to put some limits on the computer time.

How hungry did you feel today? Moderate to Semi-moderate. Mostly around 3-4pm

How awake did you feel today? Very alert

How irritable did you feel today? Not really

Inner Thoughts:

My mind has been racing around about how to network better, how to promote myself and my craft better, and realized that I am not really looking at the first level network, friends and family close enough. Tonight I bartered for 2 hours of a tech writer to work on my newsletter with me, in exchange - he gets 10 custom Christmas cards made to his liking. This started me thinking of another angle to my business - connectors.

Anyway, more tomorrow as I look into this idea more.


How long did it take you to fall asleep last night? - 5 minutes - I was out before my husband came to bed.

How many times did you wake up during the night? - 3 maybe 4 I can't recall actually

In total, how many hours did you sleep last night? - 8ish hours

Energy Level - Medium to Medium high

Stress Level - Low

Quality of Sleep - Good

Self-Esteem - Good

Dreams recalled: None that I can post publicly. They were a bit strange to start with and even more with people I wouldn't or haven't even considered in a romantic or sexual way and me being a man even more odd.

(I do want to write them down because there is something there - especially the switching genders and being Male instead of female - just will do it in my off line journal)
