    It's Fitness Month week 3, and that means sleep and relaxation, and that means our Resting Up contest! Every day this week there'll be a thread in our health and fitness forums, and all you have to do to enter is tell us what you did to rest that day -- sleep, naps, meditation, breathing. The idea is to get a little community pressure going so we all get enough sleep at night, and enough breaks during the day. If you have a sleep tracker or any other app or device that helps you out, you can simply share your results each day!

    This is a great way to keep us all motivated and accountable, and get a little healthy peer-pressure going! Plus, every day you enter is a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! How's that for motivation?!

    So get ready, and get posting in the thread below!

    Today, I slept in a little bit (Happy President's Day!) and I am planning on going to bed a little earlier tonight. I will also go for a run to help me sleep better tonight and maybe take a nap if I get lucky.:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:

    Mondays are usually light on sleep for me and today was no exception. I hit the sack at 10:45p and got up @ 5:30p for approximately 6.5 hours of sleep. I'm not usually one to nap or meditate because I just don't have the time unless its for a religious ritual and, even then, I don't spend more than 10 or 15 minutes on it, usually. I intend to be in bed by 10 tonight, maybe earlier. :-)

    Slept pretty good last night, but only got about 5.5 hours ... dang day job + side business.

    The rest of the week should be better.

    Not enough. Sleep well enough but got home late so I had to unpack everything and wash my sheets before I went to bed. Mix that with I started playing my 360 so I only got 6 hours in.

    Sleeping okay, though the dogs keep waking me up to try to get under the covers. Brats.

    My one problem is that I'm dealing with a lot of stressors right now, so I find myself needing to take a half of a Tramadol in order to relax enough to nod off. I really want to end this, but for the time being, it's proven to be a godsend. The working out I've started definitely is helping to ease my relaxation at night though, so hopefully I can stop taking a sleep aid sooner rather than later.

    The building I live in is starting an onsite Yoga class, weekly, on Wednesdays. Even though I have all the physical flexibility of a flagpole, I'm planning to give it a shot and see if that helps as well.
