I've been doing relatively well so far on my eating habits. With the exception of grandma's birthday on Sunday, I haven't eaten out or ordered take-out at all in the last 2 weeks. I've completely cut out soda and am drinking mostly water. I've been eating a lot of yogurt and sandwiches for lunch and a bit of fruit as well, and most importantly I've been keeping away from the sweets that are somehow always in front of me. Like now. Literally as I'm typing this my sis is dumping a bag of Hershey's Kisses in to the candy dish. *sigh*

The exercise however, has not been as good. I'm constantly tired lately. I just feel so DRAINED all the time. I want to nap (which if you know me you know I don't do naps) as soon as I get home and I can barely keep my eyes open by 8PM. I've had a bit of an upset stomach this week and on top of it I've got the monthlies so I suppose that might be the cause, or at least part of it. I think though that I might just need to add more energy-boosting foods into my diet, but I'm at a loss about what I should include. If anyone is even following and has any suggestions feel free to let me know.

In unrelated news I donated to four separate charities this afternoon towards the efforts in Haiti. Somehow donating to feed people red-flagged my credit card as suspicious activity, but the sudden large payments and purchases I recently made are fine. *headdesk*

OK, this Ranger game fucking blows. I'm going to bed.

For energy, you want protein and complex carbs for slow-release energy. Something like whole-wheat pasta with chicken and spinach would be good - the pasta has slow-release energy so it will keep you going for a while, whereas the protein gives you an instant boost and the spinach helps to replace iron. Bananas are good too - they're a nice portable healthy snack that gives you a really good energy boost. It sounds like you're doing really well!
