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..
