I guess I'm a pansy. I have to have my a/c set at 72. I don't have any a/c in my office so it gets hot in here with the computer and all. It does cool down in the evening, but I like the white noise so I still keep it on low.

I find I kind of hit a plateau and then found I could do more without crashing--I'm not talking about running a marathon, but just able to get up and about better. Do my stairs and steps a little easier. It's great!

Just keep trying and see what you can do without overdoing and as everyone has said--do NOT get dehydrated.

No problem with sleepiness, unless I worked the night before!
The fit bit really does tell the facts!

I have not got in my floors today, and recording 98 on my hike!!!!

As for my AC, I keep it set at 82. The thing just cools too much, I hate to be COLD!

Hydrate and be kind to yourself!

The heat saps my energy as well.

Take care.

I agree. Listen to your body. Drink water enough to stay hydrated. Not caffeine drinks but water. Caffeine will work against hydration.

We live in Texas. We keep our home at 80 degrees, and at 10:00PM the thermostat switches to 85 degrees so the AC will not come on during sleep and blast us awake. it works for us.

When traveling, we cool down the unit, and then turn it completely off. The unit usually stays cool enough for restful sleep.

LBENEDICT7 I feel for you.. No AC. Please stay hydrated.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

Not more sleepy but certainly more wary of taking it a bit easier in the heat!

I have been more sluggish too...I postpone my walking till the evening when it is a bit cooler. We have no AC in home is sweltering ! My humble goal till heat wave breaks..10000 steps. I also swim about an hour a day if I can fit it in the schedule !

I feel like such a lazy bum. Every time I turn around, I want to go to sleep. I don't think I realized this until I got my FitBit, but that "log a sleep" feature and my goal to reduce my sedentary time makes me more aware of this. I can rationalize that my schedule is busy, but others are just as busy (and some even more so) and I'm training for a half marathon... but I am just at the beginning of my training. What's it going to be like when my long run is 8, 9 or 10 miles instead of just 2?! Oy vey!

I am hoping it's the heat. Our A/C can't keep up, so it's always 80 degrees (Farenheit) in here. Plus I have been doing more stairs since getting the FitBit, so maybe that is part of it. Is anyone else feeling sleepy all the time since the heat wave started? It's supposed to drop from the 100's to the 90's this week. Let's hope it helps!
