After reviewing my pathetic sleep data from the Motion X 24/7 App, I have decided this week I am going to have to focus on getting enough good quality sleep. Usually I get to bed with 6 to 6.5 hours of sleep available and call it 7. I usually don’t fall asleep right away, so 20ish minutes of that is just laying in bed not actual sleep… I still call it 7. Tracking my sleep habits with the app really opened my eyes because it didn’t allow me to round off and pretend that I am getting enough sleep when I’m not. I know that sleep is important to help reduce snackiness (sleep less snack more, the studies are pretty clear on that one) and my overall caffeine intake, and also important for injury recovery. I do KNOW all those things, but sometimes its hard to tear myself away from the computer at night. After a long day of work I have so many things that I want to get done for this little blog and other stuff that I end up staying up super late. So this week I’m aiming for crawling into bed with 8 hours of available sleep, in hopes I get 7.5 hours of good quality sleep. We will recap this challenge next Monday, let me know if you’ll be joining in I think it is gonna be a tough one.

I’m feeling TONS AND TONS AND TONS BETTER! The soreness has subsided I’m able to go on long walks without pain, I feel almost back to normal. However, that been said I don’t want to be dealing with flare ups from this or anything like that so I’ll be taking it easy one more week. Lot’s of walking, yoga, foam rolling, ice/heat, and repeat. Hopefully I’ll be back at it next week.
