Ready, Get Set, Go! Sleep?
Ready, Get Set, Go! SLEEP? How does sleep fit in with our challenge? We have been working hard and we need to let our bodies rest and get ready for the next day. Lately, I've been daydreaming about napping. I'm not getting enough sleep and it's beginning to show. I'm a night owl... I read, I fold laundry, I surf the internet. I should be sleeping.
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic say most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep. 8 hours seems to be just right for me. My goal for next week is to go to bed at 10:15. I'm going to get more sleep so that I feel like I can "move mountains" a little easier!
How is the challenge going for you? Here are some activities I've been doing this past week:
Our family ran a 5K race! (So much fun! I ran/walked-- it felt great!)
Lots of bike rides.
A run/walk with a friend. (The time passes quickly when you are running with a buddy!)
I hope you all have a great day!
Are you a night owl too? Remember to get enough sleep at night. You deserve it!
Ready, Get Set, Go!
