Pattern Wreck

Recently, I seem to have a distortion in my rhythmic functions. It mainly concerns my sleep and eating habits, and although I don't think this is something serious, I suppose it is something that I need to put in the back of my head for further reference should I need to.

Recently I seem to wake up at different times at night, and instead of having a full night's sleep, I get less. The other night I somehow woke up at 2:00 AM and tossed around my bed for about an hour. I knew it because I heard the 2:00 AM chime from the church bell and I also have a memory for hearing the 3:00 AM chime as well. A few nights ago, I couldn't fall asleep, because I seem to be wide awake, as if my brain was on overdrive. Not that I had caffeine or any other stimulants before heading to bed, but yeah, it was bizarre.

The same thing goes to eating. I seem to not have the appetite that I used to have. I do realize that I am trying to lose weight, but I am not trying to lose weight by starving myself. That would just be idiotic. I do it by changing my diet and doing exercise instead. However, I still keep regular eating times. But recently, it is as if I do not feel hungry when I am supposed to be hungry. And trying to force myself into eating my usual amount just feels like I am stuffing my system.

Aside from that, I feel fine. So I suppose that is just a random anomaly, and I have nothing to worry about. It's just that I find it a little disconcerting when an established pattern is broken.
