When I got home yesterday, I took a bath and climbed in bed within 40 minutes of arriving home. Slept really well for five hours, and woke up because of the noise of the construction taking place on my street. I think I'll buy some earplugs so that doesn't happen on a regular basis.
Once I woke up I was wide awake. Watched a little TV, put on my workout clothes, and worked out really hard. Did 2 miles on the treadmill, and jogged about a mile of that, which felt great! Then I did weights, and was still wired. So then I did an hour of Pilates. Then I showered and climbed back in bed. Didn't sleep well, but I did get a couple more hours in, and I have felt much more normal tonight/this morning than I did last night! Just about 2 more hours to go now, and then I head home for sleep. I'm still not very hungry, so I'm eating when I get hungry and not eating when I don't, except to make sure that I am eating SOMETHING, even if it something small and protein packed to keep my blood sugar steady. Right before I went to sleep yesterday I was suddenly ravenous, so I ate a chicken/turkey pesto sausage link and went to bed.
I did about 20 minutes of yoga when I got up at midnight to get ready for work, and I am feeling pleasantly sore from yesterday's workout. I'll be working out again later today, though probably not with the intensity of yesterday - perhaps just a yoga DVD. It will all depend on how well I sleep and how I feel when I get up.
