I Didn't Get Enough Sleep And....

Posted Aug 18 2009 10:01pm
I didn't get enough sleep last night and its causing all kinds of problems like:

1. decreased energy,

2. constant cravings for sugary foods (for quick energy),

3. metabolism problems,

4. stress-out feelings and

5. decreased workout performance.

Too much sleep deprivation will lead to health problems for me---and you if we don't get the sleep we need to function properly!

Getting enough sleep lately? Being "too busy" all the time is not good....sometimes we use it as an excuse to not do the things we should---LIKE EXERCISE! If you aren't sleeping (resting) enough, you are hindering your health and fat loss goals.

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."

Researchers have found that the less sleep the test subjects got, the higher their body fat. 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 fat loss goals by not getting enough shut-eye.

Sleep (rest), recovery (from workouts), good nutrition and regular exercise work together to make you fit and healthy!
