Polyphasic Sleep Day 53

Total Sleep Time: 4 hrs 51 min

3am – 4 hrs 14 min

Started Late – 45 min.


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 beer
  • Tostada shell with garlic cheese spread

Yep, totally blew this time.  I started late and was extremely tired.  I fell right to sleep and woke right on time 1 hour and 20 minutes later via my cell phone.  I laid there for a few and my computer alarm went off.  I turned it off and just didn’t feel like getting up.  As I was complimenting getting up, I fell asleep and that was the end of getting under 3 hours of sleep for the day.

7am – skipped

I was still sleeping away my troubles

11am – skipped


  • Artesian Water
  • Whataburger Potato Egg and Cheese Taquito.

Was heading to Main Street Coffee Bar for my weekly ritual.

3pm -16 min

Started Late – 30 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 4 cups of coffee
  • Smoked Turkey Sandwich from Main Street Coffee Bar.  It was wonderful.

I had to pull over into a parking lot for this one.  I was surprised at how quickly I fell asleep, didn’t think I would for a while.  Woke via my cell phone.

7pm – 14 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 3 Jalapeno Pretzels with garlic cheese spread.

It took a while for fall asleep but I did.  I woke to the cell phone.  I feel pretty awake.

11pm – 7 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 2 Jalapeno Pretzels with garlic cheese spread
  • hormone free ground beef, with spices, picante sauce, cheese and garlic cheese spread served with chips.

I almost just got up from trying to sleep on this one, but I fell asleep and woke with 6 minutes left.  I turned off the cell alarm and got up.  I feel rested so that is good :-)

Total Sleep Time: 4 hrs 51 min

Thus ends day 53 of the Polyphasic Sleep Project and overall it was okay, just wish I didn’t have that big hibernation at the start of the day though.

Sleep Well,
