I have read a lot of studies saying how important sleep is for weightloss.  Today, I had a realization of why that is.  Although, I must admit my findings are not scientific, but make perfect sense to me.  Last night I got 4 hours of sleep.  I love nights where I can sleep 8.  I feel really good after 8 hours of sleep. 

Anyway, the lack of sleep affecting my healthy lifestyle negatively in these ways:
1. I slept through the time I had scheduled for myself to work out :(
2. I kept snacking all day on unhealthy snacks.  My sleep deprived brain gave into my cravings for sweets and carbs. 

I now understand the value of sleep on several different levels.  Now to get my children to understand the value of sleep..
