Hi, I hope its ok but I would like to try this challenge, its actually one of my goals to get at least 7 hours of sleep per night as well as not hit the Snooze button. The sleep one has been ok the past few nights but the Snooze....forget, I have bombed!!!

I'm going to start them both over tonight!!

Good luck to everyone, try and get some zzzzzzz's!!

Sorry I haven't done well with reporting in during this challenge. I've gotten my 8 hours of sleep all but 2 nights of the past week. Last Thursday night we camped out in Sand Point Park in Titusville, FL to reserve our spot to watch the shuttle launch and it was very noisy in the park so I didn't sleep well that night. And last night we stayed up too late playing cards with my husband's aunt and uncle who are visiting from Texas so I was short on sleep then too. I DID sneak in a nap after they left this morning though!! And I definitely plan on getting AT LEAST 8 hours tonight!!

I made it through by getting my required sleep for the challenge but I can't tell if my energy level was any different. (I either ate something bad or got a stomach bug)
Anyway, THANKS for the challenge.

Can't say that this challenge went well for most of us. I got about 7:30 - 8 hours of sleep only a few nights this week. I felt better and ate better because of it. But the more rested I felt, the more I added to my busy day. ;-(

I've not done that well at sleeping this week but at least I have not turned on the tv in the bedroom at night. All but one night this week I've slept better than usual but never more than 6 hours.

I got almost 8 hours last night, then took a 1.5 hour nap when I got home from work. I find that when I ramp up my workouts, especially with weights, I need extra sleep for my muscles to recuperate properly.

My husband injured his ribs playing rugby yesterday. He had a hard time sleeping, and thus I too had difficulty sleeping.

No excuses though! The dogs and I walked 2.23 miles today.
