Total Sleep Time: 2 hrs 58 min

3am – 00 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 Beer
  • 1 piece of Chicken
  • 1 Organic Apple sliced and peeled

I laid down but could never fall asleep.  I am worried how this will effect me later today.

7am – 2 hr 22 min

Started Early – about an hour


  • Artesian Water

I was just too tired to make it to 7am.  I fell asleep and woke to a phone call; luckily, because I probably would have slept for a long time otherwise. Once again I didn’t make it 2 days in a row of under 2 hours of sleep

11am – 7 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 2 cups of coffee
  • 1 scrambled egg

I set my timer to make sure I’d make it under 3 hours for the day, however it took a little longer than expected to fall asleep.  I woke via the cell alarm and feel okay.

3pm – 9 min

Started Late – about 30 min


  • Arms -  Maintained strength
  • Walk at trail


  • Artesian Water
  • Protein Shake

I set my timer for 12 minutes was asleep in 2 minutes, but woke up with 2 minutes left and fell back to sleep.  I woke via the cell alarm.

7 pm – 10 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 cup of coffee

I wasn’t tired and didn’t think I would fall asleep especially since I only set the timer for 12 minutes, but I fell right to sleep and woke via the cell alarm.

11pm – 10 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 2 pretzel rods
  • Cottage Cheese and flaxseed oil with organic trail mix

Now this is getting interesting. I have been setting my timer for 12 minutes now each time and sleeping only 10 min each time. I have awaken more alert that I usually do.  I don’t have any brain fog, but I do have a kind of brain shock for a few minutes.

Total Sleep Time: 2 hrs 58 min

Thus ends day 57 of the Polyphasic Sleep Project and overall it has been a strange day.  I am finding it weird that reducing my nap time so drastically is actually easier that the longer nap times.  I will keep up the 10 minute naps and see what happens.  Right now, the only issue I am having is around my eyes, they burn a little.  Not the eyes themselves, but around the eyes.  However, I am more awake than normal and not getting as tired.  Well, I may come crashing down at the next session, since it is the 3am and 7am ones I always sleep my long sessions at.  We shall see.

Sleep Well,
