Frann: Not as good as it used to be.
Pam Peeke: What do you mean by that? What’s going on with your sleep?

It’s important because if you cut it short, if you're not getting good sleep, it affects your appetite, it affects your weight, everything. So you know what you need to do, we need to practice. Okay, here it goes, right here.
