After more than a week of night sweat induced insomnia leading to a fog of fatigue, a friend at work inquired as to whether I’m getting enough exercise. I was a little defensive when I replied that “Of course I am! I’m walking the dogs in the morning.” Which meant that I went home with the nagging feeling that my morning walks aren’t quite enough and so I decided to make use of the clothes tree/stationary bike sitting in our bedroom for an evening ride. Needless to say, I woke up Thursday with more energy than I’ve had in a while thanks to sleeping more soundly. Another ride Thursday evening resulted in a second night of refreshing sleep and an energetic Friday.
Nothing like a positive outcome to reinforce my fitness ‘intentions’ for 2013!
And there is even one good aspect to losing an hour of sleep this weekend thanks to daylight savings time: an extra hour of daylight after I get home from work so I can exercise/play outside.
