Well, I've made it to day 2. I think this will be the real start of the adjustment period. I am pretty brain dead this morning. Thoughts are slower, and I find myself spacing out if I am not activly engaged in some task. Coffee, mmm. Not sure how coffee will effect my naps, but its helping me to stay awake. I am tried, but not as tired as I expected.
According to Dr. Stampi, the adjustment time to this schedule is 3.5 days with a 1.5 day deviation. So at best, I will be adjusted sometime today! I doubt that, but definitely tomorrow or the next day. I can do that. I am kind of worried it will take over a week like some people reported. We'll see, I am optimistic that I will make it through to the otherside.
And to keep with the spirit of this journal to report my progress truthfully, I must confess a slight slip. My alarm clock did not go off this morning (or I slept right through it, but that is doubtful). I managed to wake up on my own tho, only 40 minutes after the time I was supposed to get up. So core sleep last night was the 3 hours, plus an extra 40. And since it took me a little while to fall asleep, I think the slip is minor, but what suprised me is that I woke up on my own. Thats a good sign, I think. To prevent further slips, I am going to use two alarms.
