Sleep, the often forgotten equation in weight management--who hasn't skimped on sleep a time or two to get in an early workout? I am so very guilty of doing this but the past few days I have been letting myself sleep in until the last possible moment. I've gotten up, drank my lemon water (so good for detoxing and kick starting digestion), prepared my breakfast smootbie (kale, spinach, fruit oh my!)and drank it--then headed out the door. It's two miles to my job so it gives me time to just breathe, listen to music and think about my day-and it is free. Simple and beautiful to just enjoy nature-and sing aloud like a goofball. Freedom at its finest
Changing things keeps my interest up too-I still work out hard at work (weights, sprinting)and when I come home I do my DVD workouts but it is only after I have taken care of seeing to the kids' homework and dinner, packed my lunch for the next day and my clothes for work too. Even then doing whatever evening exercise I do I am happy and relaxed because I have done what I can to make the next day go smoothly-and ready myself for my good sleep and morning walk. Heavenly!
Sleep IS a beautiful thing and walking to work is free--and being organized helps !
