Can someone help me why I am so tired all the time? I feel like I am ready for bed after noon and after DS goes down for a nap.
I am not pregnant. DS weaned last week so I am no longer breastfeeding and pumping. I have been doing P90X and on the first week of Phase 3. (I lost 15 pounds. Yay!) I am somewhat utilizing the P90X diet but have always been on a low carb diet before I ever began P90X. I have since increased my carbs (but nothing with wheat gluten) and am eating 4 small meals a day. I have tried increasing my green tea intake since it keeps me awake but it only does so much. I am still taking my prenatal vitamins. This has been going on since last year. I have pushed it off thinking it may be a phase but...now I think something is really wrong with me. The only thing that can help me stay awake a little bit longer is if I take a 2 hour nap. I decreased my nap times before to wean myself from naps but... to keep myself awake until DBF comes home, I have to have a 2 hour nap.
Also, here are my wakeup/sleep times:
Wake-up: 6:30 am
Nap: Around noon.
Wake-up from nap: Around 2:00-2:30pm (or whenever DS wakes up)
Bedtime: Around 11:30-midnight
DBF comes home around 9:30 pm. I then put DS to bed and make dinner for him, clean up the house, and stay up with him. DBF is a night owl and plays Diablo; goes to bed at 2-3am. I am an early bird and hate staying up but... I prefer to spend time with him before I go to bed. I tried going to bed earlier before (around 10:30-11pm) and wake up too early (at 3am most of the time). It may be from my wacky sleep schedule but how come I am more tired now than I was when DS was a newborn? lol. As I am typing this, I feel like this:
