FOCUS ON: What You Eat.....And How Much, #6

How was your weekend? Get enough rest? Its hard to do sometimes because we crowd our schedules with so many things! Sometimes, we wear "I'm too busy" like a badge of honor....well, its not.....if you are not sleeping (resting) enough, you are hindering your health and fat loss potential.

When you wake up during the night because you can't sleep, you are likely to eat when you should be sleeping. And, you will throw your metabolism "out of wack."

I am a nightowl so getting enough sleep is always a challenge for me. Researchers have found that the less sleep the test subjects got, the higher their body mass index. The shorter sleep time altered the subjects hormone levels, energy decreased and appetite increased.

And we already knew that decreased energy affects your workout performance. What's enough sleep? The general rule is 8 hours of sleep a night. Some may need more sleep or a little less than 8 hours. Don't sabotage your exercise program and weight loss efforts by not getting enough shut-eye.

If you do happen to wake up at night, eat an orange instead of ice cream!

Keep your FOCUS.....see ya tomorrow!
