    Kristi, thank you! I had my husband watch this with me… So he can understand why sleep is so important and why we shouldn’t eat a few bites of “something” before retiring to bed so our bodies will receive the optimum rest from working so hard all day. A way of restoring/resuppling our bodies energy for the next day. ( you look amazing my friend!)

      Nichole! Thank you for your awesome response:) I love that you had your hub watch it. Those men can get in the way of our beauty sleep..ha ha! And yes, our body does so much for us during the day that it deserves FREE TIME! Free time from food, voices, and other things that disrupt homeostasis:)
      Way to find that the little things mean the most! This will pay off so much in your body and life.

      Kay! You are so right, it is actually HARDER to go to bed when we don’t have external forces making us fight for what we know is right:)
      So….stay best friends with YOU and have a slumber party falling fast asleep around 9pm. You will IMMEDIATELY see the benefits in your body, mood,and what you accomplish the next day.
      Luvs and I am so proud of you Kay!

    Kristi, I know this is true! Recently I did everything I wanted to do in a week to lose a couple pounds and it worked. I lost 3 pounds in a week! I went to bed late 2 nights in a row and gained 1.5 pounds back!! I got it back off, but boy was that a pain. Thanks for the always great advice. 🙂

    Thank you for this great reminder about the importance of sleep in caring for our bodies and in achieving our goals. In recent weeks I have been staying up way too late and it seems to throw everything out of balance. I’m going to SHIFT to an earlier, more consistent bedtime.
