Dark Chocolate

8:43am:
Last Thursday I bought Endangered Species Dark Chocolate with 88% cocoa at a nearby Target Store. During that day I ate 4-squares.

The following day [Friday], an unusual thing happened to me. I woke up around 8:30am. I'd slept for 9-hours. That is a very long time for me to sleep. Most often I sleep around 6-hours.

During the nite when I used the bathroom and went back to bed, I fell back asleep immediately. Also unusual.




9:00am:
It happened again
Saturday morning I woke up after 9-hours sleep again. I wondered if dark chocolate were responsible and searched on the net about that. I could find nothing relating to sleeping and dark chocolate.

This morning [Sunday] I woke up at 8:30am again! That's three days in a row. If this sleep time becomes a wonderful habit for me, how will my well being be affected?


2:24pm:
Ventura Cove
The Scampy Team has just finished setting up an Afternoon Camp at Ventura Cove in Mission Beach.

On the way here, we dumped our holding tanks and filled our fresh water tank at South Shore Park, about a mile distant.

It's a bright and sunshiny day!

  1. I get 8 to 9 hours of sleep most every night. If less than that, then I have to take a afternoon nap. I eat dark chocolate too. I have a jar of Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels from Costco...it lasts me all month or more. Love that candy.

    1. Hi Rita,

      At first I did not enjoy the slightly bitter flavor of dark chocolate. But now, I do enjoy it.

  2. "...how will my well being be affected?" Not to mention mental health. If you sleep well, usually you have a better outlook on life.

    1. Hi Judy,

      Your comment nails how I feel.

      If my results for consuming dark chocolate continue, I will be so very much delighted!

  3. I think it's your body lock recharging itself. Very normal. Enjoy the extra sleep.
    Have a good day George
