Sleep Journal Day 4

I realized I spent probably an hour of my after work time with SIMS on my smartphone. Need to think about how to decrease that time. On the other hand I also knit on the balcony and the reason why I only went to sleep after 11 pm is that I read for about an hour after going to bed. Wanted to keep going, but good sense prevailed, so that I am not even more tired this morning.
Woke up at 5:45 before the alarm clock. Bit tired, but okay once I cycled to work.

Sleep Journal Day 3

Was really tired very early in the pm, but went to be at 10, read a few pages and out by 10:15. Trying to curb the smartphone time before bed to avoid the light. No TV at all.
Awake by 5:30, cuddle time until 6 ("official" get up time, e.g. when my alarm clock would ring), then up and about.
Feeling a bit sleepy today, but better after bike commute.

Sleep Journal Day 2

Went to sleep around 11pm after a nice bath and a bit of smartphone time (tsk, tsk, no screen time...)
Woke up about 5:30 before the alarm clock and snuggled until get up time at 6.
Slept well. Feel awake.

Sleep Journal Day 1

Trying to get the Hack your Sleep Quest done:

Went to Bed 10pm, knit a bit, slept by 10:40
Woke up about 5:20am before alarm clock, cuddled with MyGuy until 6
Slept okay, feel rested

I am sort of resisting the walk for 5mins in the morning as I will ride to work by bike.

Just a note

I didn't go for a run yesterday, but went to do some errands on the bike, so got some km in.

Since I did my elevated knee push ups on Sunday my shoulder is complaining. Stupid thing is I am not sure why as I was not pushing myself all that hard and had done other exercises before, so should not have been "cold". Oh well. I plan to go for a run this evening, if I get out early enough to pick up my stuff at the pharmacy and tea shop in town before that.

I took the weekend off in the best possible way: no cleaning, no have tos just playing with yarn and reading. I have read 4 Novellas by Jon Rosenberg via Kindle over the last few days. This does not help in the least with my goal to read from the stacks, but it was very enjoyable. I also started winding some yarn I had from a yarn pool ages ago. I am thinking cardigan, but will have to check the gauge before I go further. It will likely be something simple as the yarn is untwisted 6 plies. The apricot color would make it a nice summer wear, but testing it on 4,5 mm and 5mm needles gives me a good fabric, so might be for a cold summer.

I have physio for pain in my lower back and the lady is showing me exercises to do. Sure feel all the weaknesses, so must be spot on. Will try to do them every evening.
