August 2017 Sleep Check-In

It’s sleep check-in time!  After the progress I made in July, I was curious to see if I could both hit my target 10-times, and if I could hit it intentionally, rather than the result of vacation rest.

There was a hiccup in my plans, though, as I had to finally retire my old Fitbit unit when the patch job I used to keep the band from separating from the hardware gave out again.

When the unit started showing signs of damage from the band coming apart last year, I had notified Fitbit’s customer service and they sent me a replacement unit.  The watch itself wasn’t damaged, so I used glue to repair the band and continued to use it.  However, over time the adhesive wore off, and I figured it was time to make the switch.

That wasn’t the hiccup, though.  The problem I had was that I didn’t do a final sync to transfer data from the unit before I deleted the unit from my phone and synced up the new device.  As a result, I lost about a week’s worth of data.

The unfortunate result is that 5 days of data is gone.  Of the missing days, I think I can charitably say that I hit 7-hours or more of sleep once (on a Sunday).  However, without the data to show for it, I’ve decided to live with the loss.

Nevertheless, of the data that remains, I hit 10 nights of sleep for the month, hitting the target I set for myself!  A small disclaimer that deserves to be mentioned: my vacation from work spanned the last week of July and the first day of August, meaning that the first day of the month where I hit over seven-hours of sleep was during vacation time.  Similarly to last month, I don’t consider this typical as I’m trying to be intentional with my sleep schedule while juggling my various responsibilities.

Regardless, I consider this a successful month and am looking forward to carrying the momentum forward into September.

Stay Awesome,

Ryan
