Day 280

Saturday was a day for great ideas, but this week seems to be a week for poor choices. Monday was the day of eating no vegetables, and Tuesday was the day of the night nap.

"A night nap? Isn't that just called sleep?" Well, not exactly.

Last night after I showered and ate when I returned from Happy's, I was tired. I spent Monday night catching up on statistics, which meant that I had not finished by reading for finance. Actually, I hadn't even started. (That is unusual for me, but it was my situation.) Knowing there was no way I could do all of my reading without passing out face down in a book or on a printed PDF, I decided to take a risky route and go to sleep. In college and my professional life, I found that saying I will wake up early and finish my work is a lie from hell, but a night nap could be just the ticket to getting some sleep and getting my work done.

So, last night I slept from 8:30 pm until 11:15 pm. I woke up to write my blog, then I started my homework. I had a coffee interlude around 2:00 am, finished my reading, and went back to sleep for a few hours.

It is probably not a shock to anyone that the night nap is not an ideal choice for everyday life, and I spent today dealing with the consequences of my own actions. Tomorrow, however, I'm joining Jennie at a Lunchtime Lift class at the UREC, and I'm hopeful that the class will be the beginning of an upward trajectory. These poor choices simply will not do.

Something that made today great: I brought delicious snacks to class tonight.
Time I woke up: 8:00 am
