Part of my health and fitness routine has been sleep. I get 8 hours (between 8 and 9 usually) a night. Or, I used to.
I used to wake up ready for the day, mind working, eyes focused.
Not sleeping 8 hours anymore. Having a dog really is good training for kids, damn. Also, just so busy, no down time, no relaxing, stressed, grieving.... sleep would cure so much for me right now :(
I read a lot of blogs, a lot of women have children or other very busy lives, and don't seem to sleep much. Guess I am asking: how do you handle it???
My brain feels like mush. I look tired, my eyes are kind of puffy and red. Ugh. Not great.
Do I have to become a coffee addict? I get to bed as soon as I can at night, but not hitting the 8 hour mark by a lot. 6, maybe.
I heard on an old Jillian Michaels podcast today that there was a study about how reducing your sleep by 80 minutes causes people to (on average) consume 500 more calories per day. I am going to religiously track to make sure that doesn't happen!!
I did have a piece of pizza at work yesterday afternoon :( I wanted it so much, it was a present from the boss, I was exhausted and hungry, I wanted a break from working, I wanted to chat with everyone else who was eating.
That's a rarity, though. Don't usually get miracle pizza at work. Was paleo for the rest of the day and continue to be today. Homemade chicken soup was an amazing lunch.
Still tired, though, eager for the end of the day.
