Effects_of_sleep_deprivationYes! I slept 9 hours! And I could have kept on sleeping but had a lot to do today. Still had weird dreams but I don’t remember any of them. No terrible nightmares like last night that I can recall. Today was the worst day as far as feeling the effects of not eating sugary foods though. I felt horrible during our workout even during the warm up. We laid on our backs to stretch and I didn’t want to get up. I think I am starting to get over the withdrawal though. I feel a little better tonight.

Right on track with the food. Probably the most interesting and creative food I’ve tried is Cinnamon Sweet Potato Ice Cream made with a sweet potato, coconut milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Not something I would normally make (as I usually require chunks of cookie dough in my ice cream) but it is surprising what starts to taste good during a challenge like this.

    Really struggling with sleep quality! Thanks for the enlightening post. I don’t eat sugar and yet…my sleep is terrble. I have a feeling hormones might be a bit off kilter!

    There is definitely a flip side to sleep deprivation. Oversleeping can make you feel just as lethargic. I hope your doing well — give us an update 🙂

    If it does get the greenlight, then they’d better put Max Goof in there as well. Shia LaBeouf would be a great voice actor for him.
