Following all the Rules

I am beginning to attempt to follow my rules. I had dessert last night at the seminar. And, because of the seminar, I didn't find time to exercise. Okay, that's 2 rules broken. But...I went to bed by midnight and woke up by 8 and felt well rested! So I feel like I broke even. Going to be early and waking up early is EXTREMELY difficult for me. If sleeping were an Olympic sport, I'd have a chest of gold medals. I'm proud I was in bed, lights out by midnight, even though that is still late. That's about an hour or two earlier than normal. And waking up by 8 is late for most, but it's about an hour or two earlier for me. Now, I just have to work on the other rules.

changing a sleeping patern is rough stuff. i have had to do it over the last few years, and i still fight it at times. i am such a night owl, i cant stand going to bed early either.

me too. I'm working at it. I know I need 8 hours so that helps give me a starting point.

after reading your other blog, i want to try to add to the hours that i am getting at night. i usually average about 6...sometimes less.

your previous entry...not your other blog actually.

Definitely. Try getting more sleep. Wake up without an alarm clock one morning and see how long your body wants to sleep. Most need between 7-10. If you're stressed, or exercising, you need more. I'm normally 8, but I shift to 10 if I'm stressed. Ugh. I need more time in a day!

There are definitely not enough hours...i would just like to have an eight day week. although, even if i had an extra day, i would find a way to book it solid as well. then i would want a nine day week.
