Sleeping poorly this week.

Whenever I have a lot on my mind I sometimes have a difficult time falling back asleep after waking up in the middle of the night. It’s been like that the past 3 days, and I’m starting to feel the effects. I usually wake up around 1:30 AM for a quick trip to the bathroom, and for the past few nights it’s taken me until after 3:00 AM to fall back sleep. For some reason my mind always starts racing, and I lie there thinking about all sorts of random crap. I do my best to clear my head, but sometimes it’s difficult. I find that white noise helps. I imagine that I’m on a long, boring plane trip or laying by a waterfall. Another problem is we desperately need a new mattress. When we move to our new home we’re getting all new bedroom furniture, and I will be sparing no expense when it comes to the mattress and boxspring!

Tonight I’m going to stop drinking water about 2 hours before bed. This is going to be hard, because I drink water constantly and I feel parched without it. I just want to see if I can sleep the night through without needing to urinate. I’ll probably wake up anyway out of habit!

Today is leg day, and leg workouts are always brutal. I’m feeling pretty tired, but I’m going to push through and have a great workout anyway. I find that even if I’m feeling lethargic as long as I push through the initial stages of my workout I’m fine; the adrenaline and endorphin rush provide a massive natural energy boost.

Time for me to get to work. Happy Friday!
