Running on Fumes

A few weeks ago, there was a report on 60 Minutes about the perils of sleep deprivation. According to the report, the Science of Sleep, we need at least 8 hours of sleep every night to stay healthy and fit. During the week between work, writing and updating my Web sites, I get 6 hours per night and 9 or 10 on the weekend--I've gotta catch up sometime.

I have noticed that I tend to eat more when I don't get enough sleep, that's probably I could stand to loose a good 15 pounds...The study also said that if deprived of sleep for prolonged periods of time the body can develop Type 2 Diabetes...

Watch and learn...
