The Delayed Resolution

No, I'm not MIA. Things have just been a little crazy with my sleep schedule. Essentially, I've been getting home at 1:30am and having trouble calming down until... well, daylight. So then I wind up sleeping later than I like. The good thing is that I have many CDs here keeping me busy as I adjust. I have figured out my New Year's resolution. I'm going to have a better schedule which includes me going to sleep after I get back from work, waking up, going to the gym, having a light breakfast, running errands (computer work included) and then heading to work. I just need to implement it. I'm sure I'll figure it out. B) Did you set any achievable resolutions for this year?

Sleeping? WHAT is this sleep you speak of? I'm off graveyard, but oh wait, it's 3:30am and guess who's up.

I stayed up for 24 hours so that I'd sleep at night. I made it to about 6:30 when I fell asleep 'til about 7:30 pm. Then back to sleep at 9:00 and just got up again. This trying to get on a "normal" schedule is going to be the death of me! Help?

Nut. Question, is it a bad thing when you have made your resolutions but are still trying to figure out when to start them.

Crap... I still need to start three of mine.

The two cups of coffee a day, a dollar a day into my savings have worked out great so far. Still working on the others.

Try a little Camomile tea. It relaxes you and helps you get to sleep.

I don't make New Years resolutions.. I will just end up breaking them and end up dissapointed in myself. Besides if I want to make positive changes in my life, why wait for the new year to do it, right?

I had that same problem when I use to work 6pm-2am many years ago. At that time Josh was a baby and Lloyd worked the early shift so I had to train myself to go to sleep right when I got home. It is hard to adjust to going right to sleep after getting off work because you need some down time to relax.

I made a few resolutions (I prefer to call them yearly goals, that is more motivating to me). One of them is to fill my iPod to the brim and possibly upgrade to the biggest one they have.

Another is to start doing The Core exercises again.

And there is a book I am going to read no matter what. I'd tell you what it is but I can't spell it.

Lucy is right about the tea. Yoga helps too. So does a good massage but I know that's not always available.

Please take care of yourself, I worry about your health. I can't help myself.

Yeah, I'm with Teri on this one, I hate to make New Years Resolutions. It's like, my sensible side knows that my rebellious side will bulk the at set changes, so I have to sneak it past myself... Which is getting harder to do, because my rebellious side is getting pretty clever. >:o)

I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions this year. I used to have a one year, three year and ten year plan that I evaluated and saw where I was. That lasted like two years.

If I had to say I had a goal this year, it's to get through everything going on relatively unscathed.

I did make some real "goals" this year, hopefully I'll make them all reality.

I can't wrap my head around your schedule, it's going to be a serious adjustment. BUT, you have great reasons for these lifestyle changes and I know you're going to cope quite well.

No resolutions. I'd break all of them, anyway.
