    I take 3mg 1-3x/week and have been for a few months. Definitely don't feel like I need to always take it but take it occasionally to help fall asleep faster/stay asleep longer.

    I probably get about 6-7, but it's not always "good" sleep. Sometimes I'll take 3mg of melatonin before bed which I find helps.
    I definitely notice my amount/quality of sleep affecting my day. When I haven't slept well I'm more likely to snack during the day and have a poor workout. If I wake up rested I'll feel better about my day and have a better one. What's keeping you awake? Can you use time on the weekends to get things organized for the week to help cut down on the daily to-do's?

    I don't do yoga/pilates too often (1x/week), and I just use the ~$20 mats like Gaiam. It seems like the more you are going to use it, the more you should invest.

    Personally, if I'm able to get myself up to workout in the morning, I like to have something small (raisins and banana, piece of toast with pb) so that I actally have some energy to work out, and then have another small breakfast when I'm done (yogurt, etc.).

    maggieleigh asked the Question: Easy Lunch Options?

    I'm good at coming up with quick/easy/healthy breakfasts and dinners, but lunch always stumps me. I've fallen back on good ol' pb & j because it's easy to make and keep around till lunchtime, but it's a little boring. Sometimes I end up at lunch not in the mood for what I've brought with me, and then that's just a waste. Any good ideas?

    Have you noticed any changes in strength or endurance? Not seeing the scale budge but being able to lift heavier weights or run longer can be motivational.

    Side note - are you tracking what you're eating?

    maggieleigh answered the Question: Is taking flaxseed oil and fish oil redundant?

    The omega-3 from the fish oil will be better utilized than the flax (EPA/DHA vs. ALA) but it probably can't hurt to add the flax in as well if you like it.

    seltzer with a splash of juice gives bubbles and flavor for low calories
