I’ve had a few very busy weeks in and out of work. With a good friend of mine down to stay for a week, a trip up to Edinburgh, starting a new volunteering adventure and working long hours to prepare for the election/new administration, I’ve been feeling worn out. Due to this lack of time to myself and lack of energy, I’ve been eating poorly. My gluten and dairy free diet has been put on hold while I’ve just been grabbing whatever is most convenient. I’ve been living on ready meals, packet sushi and sugar fixes. As a result, my body has felt poisoned and I’ve noticed a difference in my mood, my energy levels, my attention span and my performance when I’ve been training.
This weekend I’ve decided to cut back on the rubbish I’ve been eating and try to get back to the health kick I was on just a month ago. Even if it doesn’t last right through next week, when work gets mad with the new administration, I’ll feel better for giving my body the nourishment it needs.
