Sleep is a problem and that can possibly be the root of all evil.
I sleep at most 4 hours at a time, usually it's 2 or 3. If im really exhausted and lucky i get 5 hours of sleep.
The boyfriend suggested i try sleeping 2 seperate times in a 24 hour period and see if maybe i can get more sleep total.
Usually i go to bed between 10 and 11pm and wake up between 1 and 3am and just lay there for hours. I usually start falling asleep again just as my alarm goes off, between 5:30 and 6 and it makes it really hard to get up.
So today when I got home I went to bed and slept for 3 hours. It was broken sleep because he forget that i was going to try this today and called to let me know he had acupuncture after work and then was going to costco to get food and drink for the conference he's running tomorrow. At least he let me know he was going to be late, usually i worry when he's late. He apologized a lot for waking me up but i was so exhausted from being called out at work on the weekend that i feel asleep again within half an hour. Then he called again when he was leaving costco to wake me up (7pm) and told me he was going to get his hair cut and I should get up so that I can eat by the time he gets home and makes supper. That was nice of him. It takes my body a long time to wake up properly and I found (in junior high and was labled crazy by the doctor because that's not possible) that if i eat before I've been up at least an hour its a guaranteed vomit, so we are just assuming that applies to afternoon sleeps too. Better to be safe than vomiting yummy food up.
So I've shifted my entire schedule and hopefully this works. But it is really weird to be doing my workout at 11pm instead of 4pm.
Has anyone tried splitting their sleep time like this and if so how did it work?
