For the last few nights, I haven't been able to sleep. I am tired, bordering exhausted, and yet when my head hits the pillow, I am suddenly full of energy and ready to take on the world. Makes no sense!

I start falling asleep on the couch, and figure, well, now is a good time to hit the sack. Yet once I head in that direction, my mind starts racing. About what? You name it, but mostly stupid, non-consequential things. I lay there for up to an hour, tossing and turning and trying to sleep.

Eventually, I guess that happens, because I then usually wake up 3-4 times a night. Either a noise wakes me, or I am too hot, or I need to use the bathroom. This is all very new. It has been hot, so I have had to sleep with the window open, which means more noise. It also means that I can also get too cold, but if I use the comforter, I get too hot. It makes no sense and it is driving me crazy.

When I wake up, I am not refreshed. I am still tired and fighting to get out of bed to get to the gym. Then drag through the day until I can get to bed, when the whole cycle starts over again.

I can't quite figure out why this is suddenly the case. It has been at least a week now, and I can only hope it stops soon.
