From Tuesday night:
What time did you wake up today? 6:30am
What time are you lying down to go to sleep? 10:45pm
What, if any, was your bedtime routine? After getting kids to bed, I shower and get into pjs. Most times I am not tired yet and sit and watch tv or read for another hour or so.
What were the last food(s) you consumed tonight? (Include type, amount, and time you ate.) I ate dinner at 8 (I worked out after feeding kids dinner earlier in the evening.) I had a B.L.T. sandwich, applesauce, and a cheeststick

Did you consume any caffeinated drinks or foods today? (Include type, number, and time of day.)
Did you take any medications (prescription and/or over-the-counter) today? (Include type, amount, and time of day.) Some Advil for a headache earlier in the day.
Did you take any naps today? (Include number of naps, duration of each, and time of day.) No
What types of stressors did you encounter today, and what types do you expect to encounter tomorrow? I worked for 6 hours. I cared for the kids, cooked dinner, helped with homework. Tomorrow will be similar minus working.
How hungry did you feel today? (1- Not hungry, 2- Normal hunger, 3- Strong hunger, 4- Extreme hunger) 2

How long did it take you to fall asleep last night? Within 15 minutes of laying down
How many times did you wake up during the night? (Include times you woke up and how long you stayed awake.) 6 times. Not exactly sure of times since I didn't have my glasses on but each time I stayed awake a minimum of 10 minutes.
In total, how many hours did you sleep last night? Probably about 6.5 hours with subtracting the wakeups from total time.
I think the poor quality of sleep is contributing to my headaches everyday.
