Last night I had the worst sleep in a really long time. Yesterday I played golf in the wicked heat, and then I had ball hockey at 10pm in a sweltering hot arena with no ventilation. After ball hockey I felt awful. I think maybe I had a bit of heat stroke. When I went to bed I still felt horrible and just couldn’t fall asleep. I tossed and turned and maybe fell asleep around 5am. I woke up at 7am, showered and headed into the office.
All day I was tired. I even tried to sneak in a little nap on our office couch. I felt a little better, but still really tired.
I was poking around the internet looking for a cute picture or saying about being tired. Instead I stumbled onto a blog called MindBodyGreen that had a fantastic post about sleep and why we need more of it. The facts are really quite interesting. Take a look: Why You Need More Sleep. One of the most interesting facts was how not getting enough sleep can lead to you being overweight. Maybe my lack of sleep is a factor in why I have hit a wall in my weight loss. That, and the fact that I have been eating like crap and haven’t done any running, despite the fact that I’m hoping to run a half marathon in 13 weeks!
So, with all those facts showing why sleep is so important, I’m off to bed!
