Sleep Deprivation and Control

Still getting a handle on things.  Training was going pretty well, I was getting used to the early AM training and building some consistency.

Then comes daylight savings time, which is probably the best example of a pointless government intrusion in to your life.

Whatever, it’s still an excuse.  So my sleep got screwed up, and my routine got a little jumbled due to trying to do some fun stuff (a wine tasting and the Baltimore Foodies event at the Hippodrome).

I need to keep after the sleep schedule thing; I know from past experience that if I can build that 4:15 wake time habit, my sleep needs will diminish, making everything easier to handle.

I also just need to man up and stick with training in the AM.  I also need to balance some things to make sure I’m really doing things that add value to my life.  So with the AM training, I’m also working on spending more time cooking and drinking wine with my wife, and a little less time worrying about political news, blogging, and other extra stuff.

Once I get everything really settled (probably a month or so), I think I’ll be able to get more done.

    That’s pretty cool, as long s you can go to bed early enough to get eight hours of sleep. Otherwise your weight training will suffer – you need a good sleep to get testosterone levels up so that your muscles recover and grow.
