Done by 8am

First off, my brain totally missed the fact that our challenge started today, so today is shot already! I guess I got a few points for not drinking soda pop and for eating all 3 meals, but that's about it. No exercise, no multivitamin, no calorie counting or food journal, nothin'. Oh, I guess I get 7 points for commenting and posting, so hey, I guess I got over 10, not a total loss. Anyway, there are several major things I need to work on - believe it or not it's not exercise. I do that every day, except Sunday, just because I need it mentally in order to function every day. My weaknesses are getting enough water, staying in my calorie range, remembering to take the multivitamin, and stopping eating at least 2 hours before bed. And I'm with Cammy, I'd love to do something similar to what she's doing for sleep - only the goal would be to be in bed with the lights out by 11pm, and then up by 6am. It's not eight hours, but it's still pretty decent. I want to capture those two hours before all the little ones are up, so I can have my exercise done, and be showered and dressed for the day, in order to be focused for my day at least Monday thru Friday. So, I think I'll make that my first goal - not just exercise everyday, but to go to bed earlier so I can have my exercise done by 8am, sort of a hybrid sleep/exercise goal.

  3. Oh how I wish my kids would sleep until 8am. I have one little guy who is consistently up around 6:30am every morning (On a good day it may be as late as 7am). He is the only morning person in a household of night owls, LOL. Enjoy those late sleepers.

  4. Becky I think this is an excellent goal for you as I think you need to get more sleep. I worry about you as you have such a full plate. Do take to heart Audrey's advice.
