"energy and persistence conquer all things." - benjamin franklin
you have arrived once again will full force and scorching temperatures. i must say, i like the heat, but my body does not.
lately i am left feeling more exhausted than normal, and in serious need for a vigor boost. so, after a little reading i have come up with a plan.
i am going to try my best to accomplish these steps:
wake up each morning and stretch. - even if it is just for five minutes.
eat SOMETHING within an hour of waking up.
drink PLENTY of water. - like a shit load.
eat less sugar. - this one is going to be tough as i have a serious sweet tooth, but it is necessary if i want to feel 27 & not 37.
eat clean. - which means no more eating out. eat at home as much as possible. this should also help with my saving money plan.
exercise. even if that means a 10 min. jump rope session. something is better than nothing.
when all else fails- breathe deeply. studies show that 3-7 deep breathes can increase energy. seems simple enough.
hopefully the act of writing this entry helps me to keep up with these actions. now i know where to find my "tips" and will look back on it when fuel levels are low.
