Day 1 was successful, even though I was going through the day like zombie girl of outer Angola. I must say that today isn't much better in the rest category. I have to remember that I'll be tired this first week or so until my body adjusts to the change in diet and the extra working-out. The key is to continue to take my vitamins, drink tons of water, and get to bed early, so that I don't get sick. It was mentioned to me that my body is also detoxing due to the crappy eating I did this past month and now that I'm eating wholesome foods, my body is pumping out the left over garbage that is left. I had a nagging headache last night and feel a bit run down, but what do I expect when I treat my body in such a neglected manner.
On the positive side, I treated my body very well yesterday. I ate my 5 small meals/snacks, drank my water, took my vitamins, did a 45 minute work-out on the treadmill at lunch and a 20 minute work-out with my new DVD, that mixes strength training, cardio & abs , when I got home last night. I also went to bed early and got about 8 hours sleep...so I'm back on track...still tired but truckin' along. Today is more of the same: I will have my 5 healthy meals, drink my water, take my vitamins, work-out and get to bed at a reasonable hour...what more could you ask. Oh and in the midst of all that, tonight I still have to get a vocal coaching in, polish rep for an upcoming competition, learn a new French Aria and go to the preview performance of my friend Rebecca's play that opens off-Broadway tomorrow night. Whew my work is never done, but that's ok, I can totally do this. I've got my handy-dandy planner and everything is scheduled and running...one thing at a time.
So now I'm off to read more of my new nutrition/fitness book, study my french aria and do my job here at work as well...hehe...I just don't understand why I'm so tired?
Have a great, and productive day,
