I've been working hard lately to keep a good sleep routine that's not only consistent but at least seven hours long, which is what most of us need (if not more), and I can honestly say my weight has also been more consistent. Coincidence? Not sure yet, but this isn't the first study I've read about the links between sleep and weight loss/gain.
Do you try to get a certain amount of sleep each night?
And for those of you who can't curb your curiosity, here's what's going on in my neck of the woods:
* A sick baby :( Yeah, high fever and general irritable disposition. We're hoping the weekend brings better health for her!

* No ice cream truck visits to our neighborhood! Can you believe it? My kiddos have never bought ice cream from an ice cream truck, so I told them we'd save up some cash so they could do that this summer. But so far...no ice cream truck. I might have to take them to another neighborhood and pretend I live there so we can get find a truck and get some ice cream! (Don't you love how I talk about weight loss at the beginning of the post and then have a picture of a yummy ice cream cone?)
* If you're headed to conference in Dallas this fall and you want to start preparing early, check out my post at the Writer's Alley for tips on what to start doing now!
How are things in your neck of the woods?
