I love long weekends. I’ve long thought that we should always have 3-day weekends. They are just the right amount of time to get things done and to relax a little! We had a pretty productive weekend; car shopping on Saturday, Costco yesterday, laundry all weekend, and so on.
The best part for me?
Sleep. Lots and lots of sleep. Ten or more hours a night, for the last three nights.
I’m happier, perkier, and I’ve lost the 1.5lbs I gained last week, even though my eating has been a little iffy this weekend. I finally believe all those studies that say that getting enough sleep affects weight loss!
Tonight I’ll go to bed a littler earlier than usual, I think, and get up before work tomorrow morning to workout. Hopefully I can find a way to keep up with my sleep – ten hours a night isn’t practical during the week, but eight hours would be doable and better than the 6-7 hours I’ve been getting lately.
WOO HOO for sleep!
