Bad Night...Insomnia bites.....

Oh, my gosh..I am so tired. Last night, I could not sleep....I dont' know why, don't understand why. I was tired when I went to bed, but for some reason, sleep evaded me. I laid down around 10:15 p.m., when hubby started getting ready for work. By 11:05, I knew I was having a problem drifting off....so, I got up, took a generic Wal-Mart brand sleeping pill...it did absolutely nothing. I watched every hour pass on the clock...by 4 a.m., I was close to tears...finally, I think I dozed off for an hour or so around 5 a.m....my alarm goes off at 6:30.

I don't know why I couldn't sleep...I had no caffiene after 5 p.m, I did work out last night..I wouldn't think that would make me have a sleepless night..

I ran 5 miles, did arms/abs/upper body for an hour as well. By the time I got home, ate my salad, helped with kids, tucked them in...I was primed for bed....I had one cup of caffiene free tea...so, there really is no excuse. Peri-menopause, maybe? Or, exercise endorphins...I am only 39..would not think it would be a pre menopause thing...

Do any of you have that problem? If you do, what do you do to get to sleep?

Today is going to be a really really long day. I doubt there will be a lunch time work-out for me.

Exercise does make it so you can't sleep at night. I would think that it would be hard to get everything you have to get done at night. YOu stay hyped up after exercise, and then you all th other stuff you have to do keeps you pumped up to.
I am peri-menopausal and don't have issues with sleep, but Gawd knows I have night sweats.
I think you are to young for menopause stuff.
