I had to be such a ranter, but I have not been able to get a good night’s sleep in over about two weeks! I keep waking up in the middle of the night, extremely exhausted, and totally uncomfortable…does that make sense? I mean, I’m all warm and comfy in my bed, but my body just isn’t happy with me…
So as I layed there last night, after waking up 5 times before, I was trying to figure out why I was not being able to sleep well. Stress? Work does stress me out, but I’ve def had worse stress than this. Exercise? No, still not sleeping well when exercising, though it does tend to help. Eating? Hrm…this could be it. Is my uncomfortable-ness from a lack of eating normal meals?
Let’s put it this way, I looked back on yesterday, thought of all the things I did throughout the day (activity wise) and looked at the amount of food I ate…then calculated (roughly, which I try very hard to stay away from…very triggering) and simply are not getting in enough cals. I’m going to try for bigger meals today that I can have when I’m able to sit down at the trailer and eat, but as far as out in the field goes, we always get caught up in stuff that food/hunger is the last thing on our minds. But the thing is, this uncomfortable feeling at night is not like the normal hunger that I get during the day…no growling tummy or anything…Do any of you wake up in the middle of the night sometimes from hunger? Does is feel different than your hunger during the day? How can you tell?
Anyhow…woke up 15 minutes before my alarm and started getting ready for the day. It’s gonna be a long one. But I enjoyed breakfast! Around a cup each of Kashi sunshine and Kashi H2H, spoonful each of dried blueberries and cranberries and an orange…which was disappointing because it was so sour and tart. Eep!
K, off to tie snail nooses! I’ll be back tonight!
