SUCCESS – DAY 1, aka The Hardest Day
On cue, I couldn’t sleep last night and spent a good hour thinking about future projects and plans while in bed. By 12:40am, I declared defeat and went on my computer to practice memory lessons (a future post on that). Two hours later, I was sufficiently tired to sleep.
I actually woke up before my alarm clock went off. But, boy oh boy, did I lay in bed thinking I could sneak in an extra 20 minutes of sleep. I’m only shooting for 7:30am after all, right?
I finally got out of bed in order to drive my mom to work. I was back home for the weekend, and someone destroyed her car in an accident three days ago. So, I definitely had the motivation and reason to get up.
By 9am, fatigue and dizziness hit me like a load of bricks, and I napped on my floor for 20 minutes. I tried to meditate at first, but after 10 minutes, I was just too exhausted. Driving back to DC was difficult until I got some coffee in me.
Overall, I feel okay at best. Definitely can tell my body would love some more sleep but that would screw up my entire sleep schedule so I’ll have to brave it out.
One interesting note is that it’s always easy to wake up and get out of bed if I have a legit (usually social) reason. I only got 4 hours of sleep, but my body knew to wake up at 7am anyway.
