    I used to do my workouts in the evenings or nights, come home for meal, shower, then hit the bed. But lately I can't sleep very well if I do that. I guess I'm too pumped up or something and spend half the night tossing and turning.

    I would do it earlier in the evening, but my schedule never works out for me that way. Should I try P-7?

    what has changed in your evening routine? taking in any caffeine? If you used to come home and sleep well after a workout then I find it hard to believe that has changed all of the sudden. My guess is that you are doing something different which is keeping you up.

    that's the thing, though. I'm not doing anything different. If anything, I maybe eat a little more than I used to because i'm trying to take in more calories. maybe i'm just lifting harder than I used to and it's getting me really pumped?
