Sleep (or the Lack Thereof)

Sorry, folks. I’m operating on way too little sleep to make blogging worthwhile today. For some reason, I woke up in the middle of the night last night and couldn’t get back to sleep for three hours or so. A real throwback to ten years ago, when this was happening to me on a regular basis. (On the other hand, yay that it’s no longer on a regular basis!)

When it does happen to me, I typically do the same thing each time; get out my Kindle and read until I get sleepy. (Of course, this doesn’t always work perfectly, since if the book I’m reading is particularly good, then I end up wanting to keep reading. Such is life.) Nothing’s worse than just lying in bed for hours wishing you could be sleeping, but not being able to. I’d rather get something constructive done so that when the morning arrives, at least I feel like I accomplished something.

I suppose I can give a quick diet update. It continues to go well, though I did have a bit of a slow down last weekend while we had company visit. I ate out a couple of times, and it’s hard to figure out how many calories I’m consuming that way. I still lost weight, but this week has gone slower, and I think that’s the most likely culprit. (Well, either that, or the weight loss is just slowing down, which is also entirely plausible.)

Current stats? 204.6. That means I’ve lost 13.2 pounds since 1/19, or 6.5 weeks. About 2 pounds per week. It’s not the most fun, but once I’m in the groove, it really isn’t all that bad.

Have a great weekend, all. And may your sleep be long and restful.
