    I'm guessing the 9 hours was to make up for not getting enough sleep the night before.

You do seem to fall asleep pretty quickly whereas I seem to drift in and out of sleep for a while before staying asleep.

10 Years From Now

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The year is 2022. I'm 60 years old. I'm happy, healthy and content. I weigh 125 lbs and wear a size 6. I'm living in our newly renovated little house with my beloved husband Tito who's healthy and active at 74. I have 2 chihuahuas who I love dearly, Chico and Sarah. I go to church on Sundays and Wednesdays, go to bible studies, read my bible daily and I am spiritually fit. God has continued to bless all my days. I have lots of real, close friends from my church. I'm singing in the choir. I eat healthy and exercise and feel great. I'm running 10K 5 days a week, strength training 6 days a week, and doing yoga daily. I still Spark daily, helping, supporting, and encouraging others. I am a Sparkpeople motivator. I am a fine example of happy, healthy living. I vacation and travel in Europe that year for my birthday, taking Tito to all the places I went to when I was in my 20's. Life is good. I think I'll stick around another 10!

    SoCOOL - my goal THIS year was Sassy and Sexy by Sixty.
I've been wondering if setting a 10 year goal would be a super weapon in maintaining this new healthy lifestyle. I even chose Simply Sensational at Seventy. You've confirmed that planning ahead -= even 10 years from now is indeed as very smart and worthy Goal. Thank you

    Ack only 4 hours of sleep! I am suspecting the energy is nervous energy and it will desert you after a while.

    I think you must be very caffeine tolerant. No way I would be able to drink even one cup of coffee! I do think it is great that when you woke at 11 pm that you were able to go back to sleep quickly.
