Sleep was not good last night

 and I'm not exactly sure why, though I have some ideas. 

Yesterday was a good day. I took a walk on the canal. Then we went to Home Depot and Costco for a few things. Then I came home and cooked lunches for the week, I had been dying for some Brussel sprouts and hot links, I haven't had that in a long, long time. So I made a big batch of that for the entire week, I'll be burnt out on it but it will be okay. And that was about it. After cooking my legs were killing me, just killing me. So I laid on the couch for a few minutes, maybe 30, and they felt much better. I was doing some laundry on and off and so I was up and moving. Then we had some lunch and hung out in the pool  for awhile. Felt so good. Then I came in and sat on the couch coloring for about 2ish hours. Then I went and did Supernatural and it was back on the couch for a short time. Dinner and then back on the couch for a short time. Cleaned the kitchen, did my PT exercises, read, and went to bed. I read for a few minutes and then fell right to sleep at around 9pm. Then around 11pm I woke up. And was awake. I couldn't really go back to sleep. Then Bella got up. I let her out then got her back in and I was back in bed again. At that point I fell asleep but by 2:30am I was awake again. And again at 3:30am. Then my alarm went off. I did not take a nap yesterday and thought that would help me sleep well, but clearly was not the case. Apparently the approximately 3 hours I spent laying on the couch and coloring did nothing to help me sleep. I guess I was physically tired but not mentally tired and thus awake on and off. Not good. I'm thinking towards summer. I plan on being lazy and getting lots of rest at least during the initial part of summer but it doesn't look like that is going to be a good thing for me. I got a lot of steps yesterday, 11,000, but clearly that is just not enough. I am going to have to think on this and figure out what I'm going to do for summer. 

On another note, my legs were so tired yesterday. Over the weekend I had gotten a lot of steps. 11,000 on Friday and 11,000 yesterday. That's a lot in one weekend for me. My legs felt it. But I know that I need to build up the legs and get them used to this kind of stuff. And yesterday I was feeling it. Big time. In many ways it felt good. I know that I had pushed myself to my limits and busted right through them. Now to keep it up. 

Okay, time to get ready for work.

Day 4 - Rest Day

 Although I really felt like working out yesterday, I am taking rest days. I know they are important. Maybe not a big deal now, since I'...
