Two of the foundations for a healthy lifestyle are two that I fail at miserably and I've been putting it off long enough. Starting this week, I will try my hardest to get 8 hours of sleep each night and drink more water each day. I will shoot for 8 glasses, but since I barely drink 2, 8 is a lofty goal. I will increase my intake overall.
As far as sleep, my kids get at least 10 hours, my husband gets 8 and probably closer to 9 if you count time spent sleeping on the couch while he's "watching" TV, but me, I average 6 hours of sleep each night. I have good intentions, but the bread needs to cool or I just want to get that load of clothes into the dryer, or I haven't updated my blog yet. Please, tell me you do these things too. I don't purposely choose not to sleep, but by placing other priorities ahead of sleep, I go without.
Now, drinking water should be easy. I gave up soda, other than the occasional Sonic Happy Hour Cherry Limeade, and I like water, so why don't I drink more of it? I haven't decided yet. I think it has to do with being too busy to go to the bathroom. Giving the issue extra attention this week should help me figure it out, I hope.
Well, it's 9 pm and I have to be in bed in one hour. I need to scout around the house and figure out what has to be done before 10:00.
