Day 594: Even More Insomnia

Asleep at 11, up at three — this is probably the worst it’s been since I started the podcast, and definitely the longest-term insomnia I’ve had in a while.

On the bright(ish) side, I’m getting a lot done! Dinner prep was pretty much taken care of between 3 and 4 a.m., and I’m sending some emails and taking care of some volunteer duties between now and when I have to go do the radio show.

On the dimmer side, I think there’s a legitimate concern that running on four hours’ sleep for a period of days is going to result in me getting a lot done, but getting it done poorly or erratically. But make hay while you can’t sleep, or however the saying goes.

This does do a number on my willpower. It’s bad for food and bad for exercise — this is why there are four pillars to this, yes? Sobriety is holding steady.

I’d say “one out of four isn’t bad,” but… it kind of is.

It’s not great.
