For the first time in over a year...

I was able to sleep from night to morning w/o waking up ONCE! Though my sleep depth may not have been optimal, it's certainly a milestone. I'm on day 17 of Paleo and I'm sure it had a lot to do with it. Is there anyone here who's gone from totally horrible sleeping patterns to fair/good?

I sure hope I can finally cure my sleep issues w/Paleo and CrossFit. I'm definitely a happy camper right now

Dude, that's awesome. I typically wake up 3-4 times a night (usually b/c I think I'm hungry), and I know how much it can mess with your day. Have you made any other changes besides Paleo (such as making your room darker, cutting out ambient noise) that might help account for the difference?

No... Actually I leave my computer on overnight. I you can definitely hear the hum of the fan when it's quiet. That may have something to do w/it.

Nice! I normally wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. But making my room darker really helped my sleep. The sun would usually shine in throught the blinds and light it up, but now I can't tell what time of day it is until I remove the blankets from blinds. Works like a charm.

Re: For the first time in over a year...

cool,
dark (so dark it's like three feet up a gnats a$$. Even the charge light on a cell phone is too much light.)
and quite. (I can't do the quiet, I've got significant hearing loss and have that tinnitus{aka annoying ringing} in my ears. I've got to have something low and constant to drown it out)

I have the same issue (several years of working around Jets) I can't sleep unless there is some white noise to keep the ringing from making me insane.

Awesome! From what I understand better quality sleep helps you to get better sleep the next night too. So hopefully this is the start of something great!
