Refocusing

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Finally starting to get my life back from physical therapy.

Did anyone else see the study results that folks who get less than 7 hours of sleep regularly tend to operate as if they hadn't slept in 1-3 days? Yikes! I am a reformed woman... Honest!

Just a quick note -- still working on the improved health thing generally. Need to keep working on the weight-loss thing, but I'm determined to come at it by way of improving my nutritional balance, rather than "cutting things out." If I can just refocus on what I GAIN rather than what I LOSE, I ought to be fine. I just wish this were a goal I could achieve easily in an on-again off-again fashion. Consistency is HARD!!! *grins* So maybe I SHOULD start making minor, systematic changes to my diet! Mmmm. Babysteps. Where have I heard that before?

Hope everyone else is doing well in reaching their goals.....

    OhMiGosh ... if I got more than, say, SIX hours sleep where would that put ME?!?!?! NO KIDDING! It doesn't matter WHAT time I fall asleep, I'm UP within 6 hours, sometimes 5! I want to read that study ...

    Yep, the map to weight loss begins with HEALTHY food choices, healthy SERVING sizes and PLENTY of water! And I totally agree - consistency IS hard! I've been steadily gaining weight over the past 3 weeks or so now - I've gone from 133 to 137. I know it's not A LOT, but if it were LOSS it would be a thing to WOO HOOO about, so this is a thing to be not so happy about. BOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DH will be done with his 2 month of overtime the end of the month, so I'll be held accountable to HIM to meet up at the gym every day again - whew! I think I 'need' that.
    GOOD LUCK on your baby steps!!!

    Personally I have to get like 8 hours + a night or I just don't feel good. Getting enough sleep really pays dividends in energy and well-being, at least for me. Good luck!
