Hopefully, you had a great weekend! This weekend my mother and I hosted a scrapbooking event that lasted 2 days (although it was only scheduled for one). For all the fun we had, it was truly exhausting. The closing ceremonies for the Summer Olympics were airing at the same time our scrapbooking "marathon" was coming to a close. My mom & I were both mentally and physically drained. Admitedly, I'm no Gabby Douglas. But, for a moment I felt her pain. LOL!
The Olympic athletes do an enormous amount of preparation to stay conditioned and energized in order to do what they love. They train, study and follow special diet plans. As I reflect on my energy techniques for managing long scrapbooking weekends, I realized that I drank lots of water and snacked on fresh fruits & veggies (so far so good). But, I also downed 1/2 dozen large cookies, a cup of coffee with cream, 2 dill pickles, several olives, at least a cup & a half of M&Ms, and slept for a total of 10 hours in a 72 hour period. NOT GOOD! Obviously, I have some work to do.
So what about you? What do you eat or do to stay energized while scrapbooking?
