Week 8? --- And Continuing On

Oops, sorry, I have been so out of it that I haven't kept posting about our 8-week training challenge. Week 8 should have started and finished already. The goal for the week was to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.

What I've been doing is focusing back again on the goal of Week 2, which is to eat at least 3 servings of veggies and 2 servings of fruit every day; and the goal of Week 7, which is to start each day with some "quiet time" or meditation and scripture reading. 

These two goals are the ones that seem to be hardest for me to keep up with, and the ones that give me the most satisfaction and feeling of taking care of myself and accomplishing something.

So I'm continuing, even though the challenge is "over." Because it ain't over till it's over!

  1. The sleep one is tough for me, and I don't know how to make it get better. My Fitbit tells me I average 6.5 hours sleep/night. And even on the weekends when I technically could sleep longer, I've been going for so long on less than 7 hours, that anything more than that feels lazy or something like that. If I didn't get up to exercise in the mornings I could get more sleep, but then that takes away the exercise portion, which defeats the purpose.

    So yes, for me it means focusing on what I can control - the eating (need to really actively concentrate on this) and "me" time - meditation.

    It's all a lot of work, isn't it?
