More nutrients in healthy food. It makes sense we feel better. I eat pretty well too. Lots of organic and as close to natural as I can most of the time. Still struggling with binges usually when I am tired and having trouble coping. I can't buy the junk food. I just eat it all. Luckily I love veggies and pump up my meals with soups and salads.

Sleep is back to regular hours again. Good thing because I have to be up by 6:30 on Tuesday for the bone density scan.

I have been eating healthier for a number of years. Hubby and I started reading labels back about 15 years ago and the food have become more and more made with non food products to fool us into thinking they are healthy. We raise some of our veggies in pots on our patio, we try to purchase organic fruits and veggies. We found that when we no longer ate the products with all the additive we actually eat less. We get full on natural foods much more readily. I do, occasionally get a desire for some potato chips. I will purchase a small bag of chips and I do not think I have ever finished one of them. After about 23s I am completely satisfied. I only do this about once every 3 months. . We have found that we have much less health problems and we actually enjoy our food. ,

Keep on track

LOL....I think they exert mind control. For several weeks I was falling asleep by 11pm and waking around 6:30 - 7:00 and suddenly that stopped and I have been wide awake till 2:30 the last three nights and sleeping in to 9:30 and napping. Maybe it is the naps. Good thing I wrote that down. Will not nap more than ten minutes today and see is I can get back on schedule.

Our little 10 pounds will push my feet and lower legs off the bed in the 2 hours that Hubby leaves for work and I get up. I do not know how she does it, but apparently I move over as she pushed.

Keep on track

Crosswise. That is how Fur Buddy sleeps. I do have to wrestle around him when I roll over. The cpap monitors my sleep and I seem to need about 7 hours of sleep in the summer and 9 in the winter. I did not realize that until I started checking the data. I live in more northerly area. It stays light till after 10pm in June and gets dark before 5pm in December. That might be part of it. It is also cold and rains a lot in the winter.

Yes, I think better and more consistent sleep do help with health overall and makes us feel more energized so we are more apt to get out and get more exercise. More exercise helps us sleep better. It is a win win cycle.

Keep up the good work. The sleep challenge was helpful for me.

I am one of those people that sleeps 6 hours. I can go to bed at 8 in the evening and 6 hours later I am awake and that is it. About every 2 to 3 months my body goes into a sleep mode and I just give into it. I will get sleepy and I will sleep up to 12 hours. After that it is 6 hour cycle. Hubby is a person that cannot function on less than 8 hours sleep. So he will be off to bed a couple of hours before me. Then We have little Miss Coco the 10 pounds of furry that can sleep anytime anywhere as long as she is close to one of us.

Keep on track

I read a few articles about sleep recently and how lack-of adequate sleep affects so many aspects of overall health and wellness. I have never seriously tried to structure my sleep habits to achieve 8 hours of sleep per night but I'm convinced that I need to take some action to change my sleep habits.

My overall goal is to feel less tired and more rejuvenated! I'm tired of feeling tired.

With that said, if I get more sleep, according to the articles I've recently read, I should loose weight and decrease my chance for diabetes as well.
