Oh So Tired

This is the first weekend in a very long while where I can remember not being drunk or mostly drunk 2 out of the 3 days. Though I did drink a bit on the Friday it wasn’t a lot and that’s pretty much it. As sad as it is I’m partially attributing this to the fact that I’ve got a nice headache going and I’m tired. Withdrawal is something that I’m experienced with to some extent; granted quitting smoking once and quitting caffeine a few times isn’t a great depth of experience, it is something and what I’m feeling right now feels like a withdrawal headache.

To top all of this off there is the lack of sleep! Saturday I didn’t get to sleep till 5 am, driving back from Muskoka will do that to a person. But what amazed me was the fact that I couldn’t fall asleep last night for the life of me! Lights went off at 11 and at 1 I was still awake. Now normally this wouldn’t be a big deal but getting up at 6 only gave me 5 hours of sleep… this is simply not acceptable.

On a good note I did get to the gym yesterday and I think I’ll be able to keep up the 4 times a week thing this week. I’ve also gotten up to 60 crunches… at least I did yesterday. If I was to think about 60 crunches when I first started going to the gym the thought alone would have meant pain, but I did it. Now let’s see if I can do it all week! And finally I managed to win 50$ playing poker on the weekend at the casino. I haven’t played in person for over a year but I managed to do well regardless.

Ok, back to the work thing.
