Sleep, or lack thereof

This week has been an odd one, in regards to my sleeping.

For about two months or so, I've made it a priority to have the same routine. Go to bed at 9:30. Play meditation app Calm. Fall asleep between 9:45 and 10. Wake up at 6 on weekdays or 7 on weekends.

However, this week, I messed up. I read instead. I went to bed at 10:30 instead of 9:30, and that lost hour of sleep for three days means that by Wednesday evening, I was exhausted and went to bed that night at 8:30 and fell asleep at 9. Going to bed early then had the issue of waking up at 2:15 and not being able to fall back asleep until 4:30. And I still had to get up at 6 to go to work. I struggled all Thursday. When I got home, I started falling asleep on the couch at 8:45, so I just went to bed and fell asleep there, until 3:15 in the morning, able to fall back to sleep at 4:30. Woke up at 7:30, so I got enough sleep even though it was broken up by staring at the ceiling while being annoyed.

Must go back to making my previous routine a priority. Feeling terrible isn't my idea of a good time. I'll do my best tomorrow, but I've been invited to a party, so I know I'll start in earnest on Sunday night.
