Everyman Phase Three: Day 2

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-1am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.

It was tough waking up today, but I was able to force myself to get out of bed on time.  I wish it wasn't as much of a struggle; maybe I need one of these alarm clocks:

After I got up, I learned a few valuable lessons shortly afterwards.  One, don't have cereal + fruit for your breakfast. On a normal schedule, cereal makes me fairly drowsy (due to the carb crash, presumably); during adaption, it nearly knocks me out.  I tried staying moving around and staying busy, but I didn't even have the energy for that.  I observed my second lesson after the first - if you're going to watch Netflix, don't lie down!  Just several minutes after I plopped on the couch and tried to watch something to keep me occupied, I was fighting heavy eyelids, and lost to the Land of Nod shortly after.

Suffice it to say, the morning did not go as planned.  The rest of the day, incidentally, went pretty well, and I was able to focus well at work,  The naps weren't the best quality, but they served their purpose, and were enough to get me through the day.  I tried to remind myself that even days like today can still be progress, as I think they were.  I just have to make sure I don't forget my lessons learned the hard way. :)
