I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. Sleep is the most vital ingredient in making good healthy choices.

I have been trying to get to bed on time but since we’ve been giving Y food, he’s not been having enough formula. As a result he’s starting waking up more in the night and last night was not great at all.

I considered writing at about 3.30am but honestly my mind was already made up by that point as to how this morning would go. I knew I wouldn’t go to the class I went to last Monday because I’d be too tired, and I knew I wouldn’t have the brain power or energy to make myself healthy stuff and I’d be eating in an effort to stay awake.

My positive thinking has translated into an unhealthy morning. I wasted the time he actually fell asleep doing very little and now he’s awake again. He is actually a very lovely baby. I just don’t do well if I am awake between 2-5 regardless of the reason. Before and I can convince myself it is a late night, after and it is an early morning. But 2-5am should be asleep time, and not feeding or playing time in my humble opinion.
