So, here’s the deal: this post is essentially worthless, except for the fact it gives me a chance to vent a little. For some messed up reason I’ve hardly been able to sleep at ALL the past few weeks. It cycles from not being able to fall asleep to just having trouble staying asleep to a combination of both, until I’m completely and utterly exhausted and frustrated because I feel like I may as well have never gone to bed in the first place the next morning. I might be able to cope with this a little better if I weren’t a workout-aholic and in training for another half marathon. My run yesterday was blah in my opinion…a measly 3 miles when I was hoping to do at least 4. And today, I didn’t even run or workout at all. Instead, I slept most of the day (I’m currently unemployed, but definitely looking for work). I don’t consider myself a lazy person (my whole day feels off if I don’t get a workout in), but I’m certainly heading that direction if I can’t manage some good quality sleep soon. Not even NyQuil has been able to knock me out (I know….baaad habit, but I’m getting desperate). Reading is also something that tends to knock me out VERY quickly (don’t laugh…this made homework a million times more painful when I was in school! A paragraph or two and BAM!…I was out…literally). You never truly realize how important sleep is for your health until you really start lacking in it.
