Today I signed up for the Official Better Sleep Challenge and the Official Eat Better Feel Fitter Challenge. I think that the eating one will be pretty easy for me. I do need to add in more veggies and that will be one of my goals for that one (I love veggies but still don't eat much since I had surgery for acid reflux). The other one, the Sleep Challenge, that will be a bit tough. I am in desperate need of more sleep so I think this is a good challenge for me to try. I get up at 4:30 a.m. for work and if I am lucky, I get home by 5:00 p.m. (though sometimes it is much later). Each night I struggle to get household things done and I am always staying up way too late trying to finish things. In fact, I am getting more and more behind on my house stuff, and I never have time for my hobbies. But I need my sleep. It is important and I understand that. My health suffers since I don't get enough. Often I am lucky if I get to bed by 10:00 or even much later. I need about seven and a half hours of sleep. So my goal for this week is going to be to get to bed by 9:00, ready for about 30 minutes and go to sleep at 9:30. Ultimately my goal is to be in bed by 8:30 so that I can go to sleep by 9:00 but I am taking this one small step at a time!
