Fighting Exhaustion

    I would think having a baby would be reason enough to be exhausted, but add all of that other stuff in and DAMN.

    I’m glad you are remaining positive, I personally become a moody little b*tch when I’m tired.

    Best of luck tomorrow!

    On Steve Pavlina’s website he writes about how to make a money making blog, and one point he makes is to turn off comments. While it is admirable that you keep yourself grounded and in touch with your fans and followers, if you are doing so and sabotaging your ability to progress both weight wise and professionally on this site, it may be worth considering to disable comments from here on. It may go against what you initially set out to do and to be, but sometimes plans need to change. I’m sure you feel otherwise, but I’m just throwing it out there.

    Boy, I hear you Tyler. Between work, school, gym, side projects, family, friends, it just becomes overwhelmingly exhausting. Just last week, I was sitting on my couch and out of nowhere fell asleep at 7:30, when normally I don’t go to sleep until 11. I try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night, but I’d like to up that to 8.

    It’s good to see that you still realize the importance and value of a good night’s sleep, and the you haven’t become complacent with 5-6 hours.

    Looking forward to your weigh-in results tomorrow!

    Hey there! I am also in that boat – sleep is not a priority in my house and boy am I missing it! Just a heads up – lack of sleep also hinders weight loss. One of the obvious reasons is that you are too tired to exercise. Take a night to catch up and get life back on track.

    Keep up the great work. I am trying to lose baby weight and your progress keeps me inspired!

    Keep it up. That’s great you went to the gym last night. Try to hit it hard again tonight and you’ll sleep like a rock! Matter of fact let’s all hit the gym in support. You can do it!

    I turn into a zombie after a few days with bad sleep. My 2.5 year old has only slept through about 30 times in her life so I’m normally zombified. 🙂

    Poor fellow. Get some sleep.

    Tyler,
    We are faced with a cyclical problem. The thing about it is when you write so…soulfully, and with so much truth in your message, you get more readers. More people are encouraged and therefore want to share thier appreciation. Then your stuck responding to more comments/messages then you can humanly handle, leading to the predicament of sleep deprivation.

    I offer this as a solution, your messages in your blog alone are worth more than a tired, “zombiefied” response to my silly comments. Thusly I whole-heartedly insist that you abstain from replying to me, because you encourage me merely by writing and staying dedicated, by giving constant appreciation to your wife, by committing to your fans, and by living each day to reach your goals.
    Perhaps, I propose, that others join me in insisting that you dont need to reply to them either, because your actions speak enough. Of course, there are many who need contact, to feel connected and motivated. I personally, just enjoy hearing about your constant struggle to dominate your objectives in life. You are a good person, and Im happy to have decided to play on CNN that day.
    Let me EMPHASIZE, do not under any circumstance, respond to me. I also comment you on facebook and give you full permission to ignore me. I get enough from you already.

    Tyler,
    You are a true inspiration whether tired, hyper, or whatever. I have followed you for a while. Keep it up. I know that blogging can be tough, but I really think it is an accountability thing. It is a disciplined repetition thing too. Which I think translates into your other habbits.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I started to at my site
    “I Hate Green Apples.”

  10. Yep. I’m with Jac. You have permission from most of us, I suspect, to NOT reply to every single comment we make. Your rest is more important!

  11. Tyler says:

    Oh, I’m moody — trust me.

    Thanks for the good luck wishes.

  12. Tyler says:

    I don’t want to shut off comments. If one day, months down the road, I’m getting 200 comments a day, then I’ll simply stop responding to them all — but I won’t turn them off. It’s a community and even if I can’t personally respond, I have no reason to shut it down completely.

    Steve Pavlina does write some good stuff, though.

  13. Tyler says:

    I’m looking forward to them, too!

  14. Tyler says:

    I’m glad you’re inspired, Cat! Your right, weight loss does suffer. I will be back on track with my 8+ hours tonight!

  15. Tyler says:

    Exactly — I’m going to do one last push at the gym tonight and then pass out shortly afterward. I’ve deserved it.

  16. Tyler says:

    REALLY!? My daughter slept throughout the night starting when she was about 2 months old. I guess we’re lucky, I guess.

  17. Tyler says:

    I will tonight. Nice blog!

  18. Tyler says:

    Nice blog, Tom! Blogging is definitely an accountability thing.

  19. Tyler says:

    Oh. So if I push this SUBMIT button, you’ll be upset? 🙂

  20. Cory says:

    Dude…….zzzzzzzzzzzzzz (and don’t reply to me!) take an extra minute with your wife and baby.

  21. Derek says:

    Yes, sleep is important, but we all go through busy times where sleep is hard to come by, and we get sleep when we can. Luckily, you’re missing sleep for positive reasons. Enjoy the ride. I’m sure you’ll find a balance again real soon.

  22. Well, not UPSET! lol But really, we do understand you having priorities!
