|"What I need to avoid at work"|
If you read my last post, well, lets just say I am ready to go another round or two! Didn't Rocky make like 8 or 9 movies, I can't recall but it was a lot! I am steering away from seriousness to be more in favour of fun, easy, less obsessed. I want to thank you all for reading my blog, and giving me your feedback, it is moocho appreciated.
So back to the topic of sleep.
On my way to work in the cold(fridgid) winter months I often notice people jogging or walking. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the idea, or concept of working out, as it is good for you. But....I must identify what I find odd.
Here are the oddities (to me anyway):
It's freezing!!! Like colder then your freezer. Like freakin cold!!! I don't get it? If I don't have to be somewhere, like work, then leave me in my warm bed. Now if I lived near the beach and it was sunny, then I may be inclined to get up early and exercise. But not in the dark, freezing cold Canadian Winter.
Running on pavement? Never understood the concept. I know it kills my knees, and I am young. But running on cold, freezing, icy pavement, just goes contrary to the act of trying to improve one's health. To me it is a risk benefit thing. Run, wreck my knees, slip on ice, break a hip. I say take a day off, and get some rest.
Okay. Before all you die hard runners, send the "Lynch Mob" style comments. I do admire your discipline. I guess to me; sleep, even on the best of days is something I find difficult to squeeze into my 24 hr day.
Treating late evening highs, checking my little Type 1's blood glucose through the night, or waiting for her levels to reach safe range before hitting the pillow. Sleep is my priority.
I guess, I just think, sleep is often last on the list of important "Healthy Activities" People work, clean, watch prime time TV, and catch the news, and more often then not, sleep is last on the list.
Not for this family.
As for physical activity. I work out in the evening. Always have, and most likely always will. I know the early bird gets the worm, but who cares, who wants the worm anyways!
I know there are some dazzling studies about how society is getting less and less sleep compared to times past. But I will leave this blog light and fluffy today, so I can save time for some sleep.
