Tracy & Antarctica


As some of you may know, Tracy, one of the lovely ladies from Monday’s Class, headed out to Antarctica for over 2 weeks recently, and has just come back. Seeing as it is one of the few places that most of us will never go to, I thought it would be nice to hear from her about her travels


Sleep Sleep Glorious Sleep

As some of you may have heard by now (several times) I am loving my fitbit.  Not just because it has upped my walking steps or got me into a little bit of friendly competition, but because I am focusing on an area we regularly ignore - sleep.  Did you know that getting more than 7 hours sleep a night can increase your exercise discomfort, reaction time and speed?  It also makes you slimmer than your fellow counterparts who are getting less than 6 hours sleep regularly.  I am the first to admit that I ram too much into a day, rush around like a headless chicken, and don't relax enough.  Are you the same?

So how can you make sure you are getting enough sleep?
