Get An Extra Hour Of Sleep In ‘The Sleep-In Challenge’

Filed under: Events — @ June 22, 2008

Are you getting enough sleep? If not, take this challenge!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I go to bed with every intention of getting a good night’s sleep in an effort to get in about 7-8 hours of quality rest and the reality is I can sometimes only squeeze in about 4-5 hours of actual restful sleep. Most of the time I am tossing and turning either because it’s too hot, I have to get up to go to the bathroom, my mind starts racing, you name it. I’m sure you can relate. Been there, done that!

In fact, this morning was a perfect example of what can happen. I went to bed around 11:15pm last night and got to sleep fairly quickly I’d say. Maybe by 11:30pm, I was out like a light. But then around 4:30am, I had to get up to go use the restroom and when I got back into bed I couldn’t get back to sleep. My abs and shoulders were still sore from my workout with my trainer on Friday, I was thirsty, my mind started thinking about what I was gonna do today, and for the next four hours I just drifted in and out of sleep as all of this swirled around my restless body. UGH!!!

Needless to say, now that it’s approaching bedtime tonight, I’m extremely tired and I’ve been that way for most of the day since coming home from church. When you don’t get adequate sleep, it can wreak havoc on your body, including your weight loss efforts. EEEK! The science behind making sure you sleep and sleep well is solid–you need sleep if you want to live the healthy lifestyle you desire. That’s why I’m so pleased to tell you about a special event happening now through August 1, 2008.

It’s call The Sleep Number
