My Motivation for Today

Monday, February 04, 2013

I am participating in BLC 21 and one of the goals was to get 7 hours of sleep a night for 4 nights. This works with my streak of trying to get more sleep.

I am not a football fan, and zumba was cancelled because of the superbowl. I spent the day playing with my grandkids, and doing chores and decluttering. I got a few things done that I had been putting off.

Since Zumba was cancelled, I felt the need to bump up my cardio, so I did a 35 minute kickboxing DVD workout. it really got my heart rate up and while I did not get all the moves down, I know I will do better next time.

After my workout, I decided to go to bed early. I got more than 7 hours in last night and now I feel really rested. I have been able to get 7 hours in on non work days and 6 hours in on work days, and I feel better. Previously I would yawn all day, and now I only do it occasionally.

I exercised this morning and hope to go to Zumba tonight.
I am a work in progress.
Have a sparked day.

    Good news. Sleep is such a gift. I have been sleeping more than usual with no guests mid week.... but here I am blogging at 1:00 am emoticon . DH is making a call to Korea for work and I'm keeping him company. Yawn. Hopefully he wil be done soon. I have no reason to get up early tomorrow but if I do that trying to get up early for the weekend to prepare breakfasts will be terrible. Hmmm. Better to give him a peck on the cheek and go in search of zzzz's.

    Keep up the great work. Sleep is so important. Its weird because my body needs like 9 hours of sleep. I'm not sure if that has to do with QUALITY of sleep or that's just my body.
