I’m Tired, so I Think I’ll Eat

Pumpkin has been consistently waking up at 5:30 for quite some time. I have consistently been going to bed around 11 p.m. each night. Last night, given that the President was giving the State of the Union address, I decided, “What a fantastic opportunity to go to bed early.”

So, that’s what I did.

And today, I feel WORSE.

And when I’m tired, I eat. They have done studies that say that people eat more when they are tired. I honestly didn’t expect to be so tuckered out, given that I should have technically gotten an extra chunk of sleep last night. But I feel like crud.

Tonight, I’m going back to my reading in bed until 11 mode. My waistline will probably thank me for it.

  1. All right, another thing we can blame on Bush!!!

  2. knock on wood… baby bear finally outgrew the 5:30 phase for now. lately i’ve been able to sleep past 7, sometimes almost to 8!
    hope pumpkin comes to her senses soon!!!

  3. Maybe that’s why I’m gaining weight……my hubby goes to be early (9pm), and I usually go with him. That’s a big change from my previous bedtime of around midnight. And all this extra sleep doesn’t make me feel more rested. I’m dragging every morning, and find myself not really accomplishing much before noon. As for the eating, well, I could eat around the clock. Maybe you’ve hit on a theory that’s actually true. Maybe being a nightowl contributes to being able to resist the cookie jar…..hmm……
