Going To Bed On Time

Saturday, August 31, 2013

I wonder am I the only one guilty of staying up when I should be in bed. So many times I have cheated myself out of good rest and sleep. Needless to mention, there are unwanted consequences that comes with sleep deprivation. I usually will develop the munchies and want to raid the fridge! Like, I really need to add an extra meal... big, huge, gigantic mistake! So the lesson learned here is to "Go to freakin Bed" Bev!
My Goal/Affirmation: I will go to bed when I am sleepy. I will set a daily sleep/rest schedule and follow. No longer will I eat extra meals due to sitting up too late. I will take better care of myself.

    Thanks everyone, all the feedback and support really helps. It's interesting how we all face our different but similar hurdles that we will all someday jump.

    Those are definitely good goals! There is a direct correlation between sleep & weight loss as well as health benefits!

    Lol I usually get a late night snack even if I do go to be on time. I see alot of "sparklers" suggest exactly that: Go to bed! I just can't do it; usually wake up starving. My body seems to compensate losing breakfast for that midnight snack. I live very close to a college campus on a pretty busy street, and students are returning getting their rowdy parties on. So sometimes even if I do get to bed on time~could wake up to a loud party.

    I try not to stay up late (as the clock strikes 1a) my work schedule usually has me up by 9a....which is sleeping in for alot of folks would guess. When I sleep in, crawling out of bed is more like 11a or as late as noon. ack! It's when my boss shifts my work schedule to where I have to close all the time, or closing then opening, only to close again~completely messes up my sleep schedule emoticon I get to close tomorrow night and then she has graced me with an "early morning shift" where have to be at work by 8a
