I'm going to start with my blog today first thing before breakfast, so I can get the first item out of the way.
1) Did you get at least 7 hours of sleep last night?
I only got 4 1/2 hours last night. For almost a month I've been going to bed from 1 to 3 o'clock in the morning. When I actually turn out the reading light, I check the time. Last night: 1:42 a.m. This morning when I woke some time after 6 a.m., I decided to stay up and see if I can break this cycle. The emotional/psychological side of this dilemma is that after about 10 p.m., I feel free to do whatever I want to. If I could give myself permission to "have fun" during the day instead of constantly feeling as though I need to stay on task (even though I don't), I could keep a more healthy sleep schedule. This problem is a basis for a lot of other health challenges, including no energy, eating late at night, and avoiding exercise.
2) Exercise at least 10 minutes a day
3) Nothing to eat after 8 p.m.
