One Things - Day 8 - Friends Don't Let Friends Shop Sleep Deprived

Tuesday, April 07, 2015

First thought: I needed to do a little quick shopping last night, while severely sleep-deprived. (See below) Being very tired, my body was feeling the need for some quick energy. As I've sworn off caffeine (also below), it wanted sugar. Lots of sugar. I didn't spend a lot of money, but I came out with tons of empty calories, for which my coworkers thanked me. Onward and upward (see below now, if all that upward and downward hasn't gotten you lost)

Sunday didn't end nearly as well as I expected. I hopped online quickly to write a blog post upon arriving at home from visiting the kiddos in Philly. The straight off to bed, from which I spent the next 4 hours trying to fall asleep. I did take some time to try to read, to take my mind off my insomnia and tire myself out. I finally fell asleep sometime after 2:00.

I then drug myself out of bed around 5:30, the latest I could remain there and still be to work on time. It made for an incredibly long day. Plus my right knee decided it didn't want to be part of my leg anymore and rebelled loudly all day, forcing me to break out the cane just to get from place to place.

Got home late as I had another errand to run (no food this time). Headed to bed about 7:30 with no dinner. No, I wasn't punishing myself. I was that tired. DW asked when she should wake me, and I said 5:00 AM.

So, the only One Thing for yesterday was to log into SparkPeople and do my tracking. Today, I made progress on them all, gave up caffeine, established a bed time (which I've already violated by 30 minutes, but I have laundry in). So time to unload the dryer and call it a night. My knee is noticeably better, though it is still unhappy. Tomorrow will be awesome. I have chosen.

    WOW! Caffeine? NO WAY! Couldn't Wouldn't do it! I am willing to give up many things in my life time but caffeine is not one of them! Good for you! We need to schedule a bike ride with the Berks Sparklers again!
