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 exercise today? (Include the type, duration, and time of day if you exercised.) I ran 3 miles in 35 minutes around 6:30pm
Did you consume any alcoholic beverages today? (Include type, number, and time of day.) No
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 awake did you feel today? (1- Exhausted, 2- Somewhat tired, 3- Fairly alert, 4- Wide awake) 3
How irritable did you feel today? (1- Calm, 2- Slightly annoyed, 3- Moderately irritable, 4- Highly irritable) 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.

    You're probably right. I just get emotional, but when my husband sleeps poorly on a regular basis he has horrible migraines and gets really sick. Camomile tea before bed and a little lavender oil on your pillow will likely do wonders. They're both mild sedatives that are good for helping you get to sleep, as well as stay asleep. They can feel much stronger when your body is craving a good night's sleep, though. You'd think dh had been hit with knock out gas, the way he responds to lavender! Lol

I Made It!!

Monday, October 21, 2013

I survived Fall Break. I woke up 3 days a week at 4 in the morning and went to gym to get my exercise in. I didn't get as intense as I normally do, but an hour is better than nothing. I tried to stay on point for my eating but I may have let a few things slide since we were prepping things for Halloween and had a playdate with cousins. After two weeks straight with my children I appreciate the quiet and peace I have during the day. But I know I'll have to make a better plan for Christmas Break since it's in 61 days. emoticon

Getting Back!

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

After a week of sick children then a small running injury to my foot, let's say I got off track. I keep eating the way I was while running 15-20 miles a week but wasn't getting the exercise to justify. Then it all caught up to me. And now I'm fighting out the hole I created and getting focused again on training for my first half marathon. Wish me luck :)
