Hang in there - It's almost the weekend!
My weeks are really flying by quickly lately. I think this is in part due to my increased work out schedule. I went from tread-milling three times a week for an hour (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) to Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday (still an hour a session) and added a 20 minute Wii Zumba session after each tread mill session. My days are just FLYING by!

That being said I am always so grateful for Friday to arrive. I am pretty tuckered out at the end of a work week and look forward to a little rejuvenation on the weekends. Sleeping past 4:45 am and getting more than 6 or 7 hours sleep is wonderful. I always seem to be short on sleep and I know I will have to work on that as part of my health quest. Being on Weight Watchers is helping with that as well - I have cut my coffee back to one cup most days with only an occasional Starbucks Skinny Cinnamon Dulce Latte as a treat. I have cut way back on my wine drinking (although I always like wine better in the winter - so we will see how that goes....) which seems to bother my sleep quite a bit. And I am training myself to be able to get up and use the restroom in the middle of the night and go back to sleep. I am increasing my water intake quite a bit - so this has become a needed skill. And I feel like the more I exercise the better the odds of me getting a good nights rest.

Sleep is so important but it is so readily sacrificed.

I learned about sleep the hard way. I used to be able to survive on 5 hrs a night, but then I got sick and now I make sure I get between 8 and 10. I am much much much better for it, and nicer to be around!

I have a friend that teaches Zumba, and she told me the other day she has been teaching so many classes that the only pants she owns that fit her anymore are her yoga pants...the rest are too big. Soooo, apparently it's a good weight loss technique. I'm still concerned about her freakish tiny body though. And slightly jealous.

@Becoming Dr Doc Sleep is SOOOOOO Important! And you are right - there is a lot more crabby going on when a person is tired out then when they are well rested!

It's amazing how it's pulling my body in. I am hurting in places I haven't hurt in a long time. I teased my Husband that my tail feathers hurt from shaking them so much! I can't imagine teaching class after class of it. I can only do 20 minutes a shot and I am panting!
