Second day back at work. I'm struggling trying to find a routine to balance work, school, writing, working out, AND SLEEP. I have to fit these in and be able to get 7 to 8 hours sleep, else I'm no good. I hear people all the time talking about how they can get by with only 4 or 5 hours of sleep each day. Okay, I do not find this admirable at all. LOL And that's not something that I'm striving to do. I want to balance my priorities, and still give my body (and muscles) the proper time to get well rested so I can be as fully alert as possible.

Today I'm going to try 10 - 15 minutes of strength training this mnorning, schoolwork (complete a discussion question and a response) and writing (minimum 1000 words) after work. Debating on whether I can do 40 minutes of cardio this evening.

I'm determined to find the proper balance to complete my goals in each area of my life this year.

Balance is key and so hard for women to gain. I also need eight hours of sleep but have found that I get cyclic insomnia. Gotta talk to my doctor about that. When you figure out how to balance things out, let me know!

Well at least I know that I'm not alone. Not that knowing that will help me any,,,lol

Studies say we need the sleep. I am the person who can't sleep more than four or five hours a night. I know I need too but my body will not do it.
