I went to bed hungry last night. I’d been for a run and then had dinner after but was still feeling a little hungry when I went to sleep. I debated getting up for a snack but wasn’t sure if I was actually hungry enough for it, and eating just before sleeping is still a little hard, so I ignored it and went to sleep.
Four hours later it’s 3.30 am and I am wide awake and cannot get back to sleep. I’ve gotten up to have a cup of tea and a slice of toast as I know that will help. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get back to sleep now (I can’t find my phone and can’t look properly as the boy is still asleep so I can’t use my trusty sleep app :/) and I know I’m going to be exhausted later on.
When I was restricting waking up super early was part of parcel of my life and I used to like it as I would get so much done before the world wakes up – but now I’m more calm and stable it’s just a pain now! I want to be asleep!
So, lesson learnt, eating is refuelling, and my body needs fuel to sleep.
