Just Say No To Zombies

zombie - image from benblogged.comI’ve never been good about sleep. I normally get around 4 – 6 hours, which I can survive off of unless something else gets added to my plate…then it doesn’t cut the mustard, so I belly up on coffee (or crash and burn).

I know sleep is important, but I still have not taken that seriously.  I will though…starting today!  And I’ll be held accountable knowing that I just told D-Lo and Michelle that I would (and also because I did just broadcast it on the www).

I’ll aim for 7 hours. This means I am committed to being in bed and asleep by 10:00pm. ouch. That is early.

If any of you see me tweeting around 10:00pm CST, I hereby give you permission to e-punch me in the face.

Are YOU being intentional with getting your needed sleep?

[By the way…I am now just over 21 weeks out from my competition – Been training for 81 days now!]


Sleep V. Life

I am trying to be purposeful with my sleep schedule, but I must admit I am failing miserably.

My life does not have a perfectly routine pattern, so it is very difficult to

hit the sack at a specific time each night.  I know it is vitally important to my health, metabolism/weight loss, and fitness, but life happens. *sigh*

For now, since I can’t go to bed at the same time every night, I am decidedly waking up at an hour based on when I went to sleep.  I can’t just drop everything in my life just so that I can get good sleep for my fitness sake.  I would if fitness was my career.  But I will certainly hold to the understanding that sleep is important for my health. Be purposeful in getting good sleep.

Make time for sleep. Be purposeful! 🙂
