Learn something new every day

I usually don't share what's happening in my life. I decided that if sharing my mess will help someone else then it's worth it. I'm not very consistent so there will be stops and starts as I plug along.
I stayed up late with my husband last night (he is a night owl). I'm paying this morning. Since starting a serious exercise schedule I'm more tired and staying up late cost me big today. Too tired to do anything, went back to bed after breakfast and that helped a little. I'm going to set an alarm on my phone for 9:00 p.m. to give myself some time to get ready so I can be settled in bed by 10:00 p.m. Hope this works.
Lesson # number 5 million - Sleep is important, especially when making life changes and trying to reach goals.

    Sometimes we're torn between spending time with our loved ones and doing things for ourselves.

    There's so many factors that come into play when trying to get into an exercise routine that works.

    Getting plenty of water (8 cups per day)
    Sleep (6-8 hrs)
    Eating enough calories
    Burning more calories than you take in.
    Cardio at least 1/2 hr per day 32 times per week
    Strength 2 times per week

    Remember to work on one goal at a time and you'll get there. Sweet dreams. Wishing you well on your goals.

    Hi. It works the other way at our house. When I go to bed early with DH, I wake up 4 or 5 times during the night and don't have a good sleep. Funny how that all works.

    Hugs, Gaylinn
