Just started the Challenge today :) I am stresse due to changing jobs after 10 years and being "NEW" all over again....Even though I know my job duties and can perform them well...its a different hospital, different people, and different doctors to learn. I am taking a deep breathe as I write this! I CAN DO IT! Whew...I feel better !

just started the challang on sunday. try to stick to the same bed time. have no trouble falling asleep i put my ipod on so i don't have to listen to ourside noises, teenagers and hubby asleep in about 10 minutes but come 2.30 eyes pop wide open. would love to be that awake at 7 when i have to get up
It's been 4 weeks now that I took the challenge. I have increased my walking and decreased my calorie intake as well as implemented daily affirmations. I have seen a complete 360 degree change in my sleep patterns for the BETTER! Sometimes I do wake up in the middle of the night but it is much less frequent. I'm getting a full 8 hours of sleep every week night now and it feels wonderful! ;)
Very good article. My biggest impediment to sleep is the menopausal alarm clock that wakes me up btwn 2 and 3am on weekdays when I have to get up for work at 4:30am. Having the tools to assess my sleep and well-being will give me insight on what to do to achieve better quality of sleep, AND stop trying to catch up on the weekends.
This is a GREAT article! I've read it before but this morning, I was struggling with the fact that I hadn't lost any weight in the last week although I've worked very hard on my exercise and diet so it was extremely timely to be in my mailbox today. Thank you!
Wonderful article. I look forward to putting these into practice. The most challenging aspect of this fitness journey to me is the sleeping. It is sooo hard to do everything I want to do during the day. Then I go to bed way to late. Hopefully this is what I need to get better sleep. We can do this!!

Absolutely wonderful article. This has really made me sit up and think about what I am doing. I used to weigh myself everyday but often got disappointed at the result, so I am putting them away. I might give in and have a weigh once a month but thats all. Great. This is the start of the rest of my life. Jobabe
Has anyone tried cardiologist Dr William Davies' wheat-free diet to support a heart-healthy life style? He has two web sites - Wheat Belly Blog and Track Your Plaque. It's very interesting and I am trying it right now. You WILL see results right away.

It's only my second day on this site and I'm loving all the new tips and tools I seem to be finding everytime I come on here. This article was good to read. It's a great idea keeping track of your health, stress, wellness etc, and I hope being able to do it on here will make me consider all these things and how they affect me in day to day life, rather than purely focusing on just calories and exercise.
I would like to keep track of all four things mentioned in the article: sleep, self-esteem, energy and stress. When I clicked on the measurement tracker, the only ones I could find were energy and stress. Is there anywhere else I can track sleep and self-esteem? Can anyone at SP add these two things to the section with energy and stress to keep them all in one place?
