Holy Rollovers Batman.. it’s June First!! April showers bring May flowers and May was so Hot, let’s hope June is so Not!!
One of my unwritten goals this week was to get 7+ hours of sleep a night. I had no excuses for not hitting that target. Kids are home, I can get to bed by 10, it’s summer now so I can sleep past 7, should have been cake. I was stars across the board right up until yesterday.
Two nights ago I was up late communicating with my Work peeps and then up at 6 to watch first shift for a go-live. All that = 6 hours or less. Funny though when I checked my Fitbit it still had a star and said I slept over 8 hours. 🤨
Looking closer, it thought I was sleeping yesterday when I took the kids to see “Solo”. Uhh really?! I wonder how it determines someone is asleep. I must have been really still during the show. I know it looks at heart rate too and I wonder if it thought I was in REM sleep or something. If I thought about that for a second when I saw it I would have looked at the analysis page that shows a breakdown of types of sleep… awake, REM, Light, and Deep. And I know it uses heart rate because some nights it says it can’t calculate the complex because of a lack of HR input data.
I acted too fast though and deleted the erroneous row from the dataset to get a true picture of my night/day’s sleep. As I suspected 5 hours and 51 minutes. So I lost my star rating for yesterday. Today I’m back up to 8 hours so I may still hit my goal for the week (in average sleep per night). Right now I’m at 7 hours and 21 minutes average, so I should only need to get 7 to stay on target.
So this week the focus is work and sleep. I’ve come to the conclusion that I always try to do too much. Too many goals and targets and expectations. I have to pick and choose just a couple areas of focus, well and not let the other long term goals suffer so much.
So no reading or poetry this week. No worrying about food or steps. Minimal social meet ups (besides the Solo event yesterday). And Solo wasn’t a social Meetup, it was classified as a basic need, like food or sleep. 😜 I was able to take the kids, which is why I’ve held out so long. I needed to know if their dad was going to take them last weekend. Since that didn’t happen I got the honor.
If I was into critiquing movies instead of cheeseburgers, I would have given it 7 out of 10. But since that’s not my jam, I’ll just say it was above average with decent acting and an ok story. Definitely not as good as Rogue One. Definitely better than episode 1 and 2 (but that’s not saying much). The action sequences didn’t really get my heart pumping much.. after all, my Fitbit thought I was sleeping. Ha!!
Today it’s going to be another hot one. I’m gonna Work some and then hit the pool with the kids. I may be focusing on sleep, but I’m still all about that balance.
