Altered Schedules Part 2: Resetting Sleep Cycle

I’m continuing to try the Altered Schedule talked about earlier.   I don’t think its working.

I even went as far as trying to Reset my Sleep Cycle with a 16-Hour Fast.  Twice.  This is the second time. Result:  While hungry, I don’t get much sleep; Sure enough I wake up at 6am no problem.. its now 11am and I am draaaaggging.  If this is like the last time I did this (Tuesday morning), at about 1pm the sleepy is going to hit like a ton of bricks attached to my eyelids.

On the other hand, yesterday there wasn’t anything I could do before a 10am meeting at the client site, so I slept in.  I had a wonderful day!

I am about ready to throw in the towel.  My clock likes to fall asleep at about 1am or 2am, and get up around 8am.  Next week, I’m going to try and respect that:

  The Plan The Reality
8am-? Wake up, Shower, Journal, etc TBD
?-10am Get to work by 10 Probably more like 9:30.
10am-7pm Be work productive.  
First meal probably at noon.
Will get cut short whenever anything sneezes .. family sports, etc.
7pm-9pm Household productive.  Dishes, sweeping, etc. Eating dinner with the wife would count as household productive. Smile
9pm-11pm Play I can be pretty good at this part when I get my target figured out.
11pm-midnight Wind down Not so good at this.
midnight-8am Sleep 1am: Cat.  3am: Cat  5,6am: Cat

Hey, Deployment done.  Back to work.
