  • This check-in is for June 2nd – 8th.
  • My focus is shifting to something I haven’t been paying enough attention to lately: how much sleep I’m getting.  More specifically, how much deep sleep I’m getting.  I discovered I’m only getting about half the amount of deep sleep I need.  It’s the same with my REM sleep.  This could be an explanation for why I tend to take long naps during the weekend; my body is trying to catch up.
  • What I don’t understand about this is that I practice good sleep hygiene.  I go to bed and get up at about the same time every day.  I keep the bedroom dark, cool, and electronics free.  I shut off or put away all of my electronics more than an hour before I go to bed.  I don’t eat anything three hours before bed.  I use melatonin, and I usually drink a cup of chamomile or Sleepy Time tea a couple hours before I go to sleep.  I’m not sure what else to try.

  • This check-in is for May 26th – June 1st.
  • I LOVE Habitica (Habit RPG)!  I’m already at Level 9 and I’ve collected several pets and pieces of gear.
  • I also love Walking4Fun.  My FitBit syncs with my profile and I can see how far along the Appalachian Trail I’ve gone when I log in to my account on the website.   Each section of the trail has pictures, a trail diary, and maps.  There’s also a public section to write your own comments, and another section to see all your stats.

  • This check-in is for May 5th – 11th.
  • My cat, Dresden, is doing much better on the special food the vet had for him and he’s even back to eating his morning treat.  However, life was still busy with the Boyfriend’s Mom and Sister in town and we’re having his Aunts over this weekend.  At least I got a little exercise from cleaning the apartment in preparation!

  • This check-in is for April 28th – May 4th.
  • This has been such a crazy week that I almost forgot to do this check-in.  First I found out that my BFF is moving to another state on MONDAY!  Then all hell broke loose at work.  Then my cat, Dresden, got sick (it might be a food allergy).  Then some other personal stuff happened that I can’t get into on here.  Suffice it to say I’m glad it’s Friday.
  • I did not work out at all this week, but I did finally hit my mini-goal weight.  I haven’t seen that magic number on the scale in over 2 years, so I’m very proud of myself and ecstatic.  I’m also surprised considering this week’s stress eating.  At least it was Artic Zero ice cream instead of other more fattening foods.
