Today's Challenge?

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Today on SparkCoach my challenge is "Try an Early Bedtime". What? I go to bed between 9:00 and 9:30 as it is. Earlier? That would be ridiculous. I have always been an early-to-bed person. And I fall asleep instantly. I'm also an early-riser. I get up at 5:00 just because. I love my little bit of "me" time in the wee hours. I cuddle my cat, do my Spark thing, exercise a bit to wake up the muscles, shower, etc. I started this program during the summer when I got serious about walking and dropping the weight and I have to say that this has been very successful for me. Why change up something that works. I'm happier getting up early and, honestly, I get alot more done in my day by not just lounging around in bed. But I do have to admit that the first couple of weeks after school ends in the spring that I sleep like the dead. 10 hours minimum. I am so spent by the end of a school year that it takes me at least 2 weeks to recover. Working with preteens can be very rewarding but very exhausting at the same time so by the end of the school-year, well I'm just exhausted. Few weeks to recharge and unwind and I'm good to go.

    Hehehe. Funny replies. Love it!

Well, whatever works for you!
I wish I could consistently sleep from 9 to 5. Sometimes, I sleep less, sometimes more than 8 hours. Nerves I guess.

    9pm to 5am is 8 hours sleep. They want you to shoot for 9 hrs. Maybe just sleep in an extra hour on the weekends and see how that feels. You may find that you are less hungry on the days you get 9 hrs of sleep.

    Sweetie, how about 5 minutes earlier? You'd still be doing the challenge! LOL
