Your Bonus Challenge for Friday (optional) is going to get plenty of sleep at least 7-8 hours of sleep Friday night! Whether you have to go to bed a little earlier than you normally would on a Friday, or try to sleep in a little later on Saturday, this will be a challenge for many of us. Adequate sleep enhances your health and immune system, but also helps you recover from working out. Sleep deprivation can lead to increased appetite and stress-related hormones that might hurt your weight loss and fitness efforts, too. You can find more info about the sleep/weight connection here: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/ wellness_ articles.asp?id=129 The Sleep Quiz: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/ quizzes_s tart.asp?quizid=43
Enjoy your workout and challenge!
