John,

> I felt so good on Monday so I lifted weights on at 6 pm and had a bad night sleeping.

Please give me a little more detail regarding your sleep problems. Do you have trouble falling asleep when you first lie down or do you fall asleep initially but then wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep?

When you're having trouble getting to sleep, is your body tired but your brain is going full steam? In other words, do you lay in bed ruminating thoughts over-and-over in you mind?

When you finally get to sleep, do you sleep soundly or do you merely doze near the edge of consciousness?

For what its worth, increases in the intensity of my exercise program causes sleep problems for me until I become accustom to the higher level of activity. In my case, I have always attributed this to an increase in endorphins which (according to my theory) causes some hypomania. But this is just my layman's explanation that I use to make sense out of my world. It comes in handy while I am laying sleepless in my bed becoming more angry by the minute ruminating about the fact that my inability to get to sleep is going to make me very unproductive and uncomfortable the next day.

If I had not been lifting weights on a regular basis, and then lifted at 6 pm, its almost guaranteed that I would have a difficult time getting to sleep. I have to ramp up my exercise program gradually and consistently over an extended period of time.

John, I know your situation is more complicated than the one I've described, but it may have some applicability. I have a hunch that ATP is involved either directly or indirectly in your exercise related problems.
