Batteries are EMPTY!

So, today I noticed my workout was draggin... And it took me a few minutes to figure it out.

I began to add high intensity circuit training to my schedule. Yesterday, was the first day, and I forgot to adjust my diet to accomodate that.

So, the yams and sweet potatoes that I didn't eat last night, would have really helped me power through the workout.

This is the fun and interesting part of experimenting with your own body. You can see the results quite quickly, and if better documented, I could figure out what amount my body requires exactly. But since I'm trying not to make things too 'scientific' and out of reach, I will just adjust my diet to add a more complex carbs to my day time meals. The reason I won't add it to my night time meal is that I want my body to concentrate on digesting fiber, leafy greens, and protein FIRST, then switch to fat while I'm sleeping... At least that's the plan.

I'll let you guys know how the next work outs go accordingly.

In the meantime, I've got to call HUD and try to save my condo from FORECLOSURE!
