Well, I tried. But, with my little old dog getting up several times a night it's been hard. He had another seizure last night and I've been up since 3:12am. At work now and wanting to snooze on my keyboard. :(

Can't let it get to me! I still lost 1.5 pounds last week. Down to 148.6, from the 165 I started at on 1/4/16. :D

Went to bed all week with enough time for at least 7 hours' sleep but then most nights didn't sleep well.

Keep your EYE ON THE BALL. What is the goal?Will this action get you closer?
slowly but surely.

Rarely have a soft drink but do find it hard to get to bed early enough. I'll take the zzzzzz's challenge

Oh boy! I've got to do the zzzzzz's challenge! I'm a terrible sleeper! I'm gunna tackle this head on!
Thanks! Especially since I have worked literally everyday this month beginning with the last few days of January and won't end til the middle of marchšŸ˜…
Last 2 weeks I did not make my food goals but I did make more than my exercise goals last week for the first time since I began spark again! I'm proud of that and will use it as a launching pad.
Went this week and got really wonderful whole organic delicious food and did some prep with it this weekend.
Hugs and healthy eating and sleeping;-) to all of you!

Sorry guys...my computer came up saying I had a virus. I battled it today and found it was a false positive so no harm done but I'm running late posting.

This week, the schedule calls for an Intake Challenge and we've made it a Choice Challenge this time, so you'll choose which of these MC will do you the most good for you!

Choice 1: Intake some Zzzzzz's!

Are you the type of person that folks describe as "burning the candle at both ends". Me too! Hopefully, I won't run out of candles anytime soon! Anyway, I've always figured that I'll sleep when I die! There is just too much to do that's fun these days!

Yet, did you know that catching enough z's is actually important for losing weight? No? Well, check out this link and find out how two hormones that are essential to weight loss are decreased significantly when there is a lack of sleep:
ww.proactol.com/pro-articles/weight-
lo
ss-and-sleep_23.html


Read this article to find out about how best to get in a good nights sleep, why drinking a dairy product before bedtime is your best option, and how technology may play a role in keeping us up at night, rather than helping us wind down:
www.livestrong.com/article/74796-sle
ep
-important-weight-loss/


Also, in case you have trouble sleeping, here are some tips from SP:
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti
on
_articles.asp?id=876

(Don't forget to get your 3 Points for reading each article today!)

So, should you choose the Snoozing part of the MC for this week, beginning Monday night, you'll be charged with getting as many hours of sleep as you can for 4 of the 7 nights this MC is in effect.

Of course, discuss it here in this Forum.
1. How do you feel?
2. Do you think getting enough sleep helped stop you from snacking?
3. How about concentration? Did it help?
4. What are your personal tips for a better nights sleep?

or

Choice 2: Cut The Carbonation (CTC)!

For a lot of folks, soft drinks are a major part of their calorie/liquid intake and a hard thing to put aside.

Yet, did you know that carbonated beverages are not only a problem for a diet because of what they include (loads of sugar and high fructose corn syrup) but for what they EXCLUDE from a diet? If a person is busy drinking "liquid candy" all day, what are the chances they will make more healthy choices like water?

Check out this link: www.emedexpert.com/tips/soft-drinks.
ht
ml


Read how soft drinks can strip us of our needed calcium:
www.ehow.com/list_6465969_harmful-ef
fe
cts-drinking-soft-drinks.html


So, if you choose this section of the MC for this week, you'll cut out all carbonated beverages for 4 of the 7 days the MC is in effect. And, of course, post about it in this Forum.

1. What tips do you have for others who are cutting the carbonation?
2. What obstacles have you encountered?
3. Did you notice a significant change when you cut back or stop?
4. What replacements did you use?

Please pledge your choices by Wednesday at the latest, and let us know if you're going with ZZZZZ's or CTC! :)

Good luck ya'll, I know you can do it!
