Hello Dr. Graham,

I practised yoga on and off for many years knowing that I still should do
another activity with some cardiovascular side to it. Now that I'm on 811rv
(started 25 days ago) I am going to the treadmill and running and even
though I still don't like it (I always hated running), I feel like I'm
conquering a new territory of my laziness and I like that.

Regarding time, I think morning before breakfast is the best option, as
that gives me a piece of mind of having done my exercise duty for the
day. Also, because there's no digestion bothering me. However, when I
wake up I'm hungry and I still find myself tired, so what I do is drink water
and stay in bed checking my email etc until I feel more energised. Since
I'm eating 811rv I sleep the same hours as I used to before 811, which
revolve around 8 or 9. I have no problems to fall asleep nor do I wake up
during the night except for toilet visits.

Time management is also a concern. As I said, I wait before exercising;
also wait afterwards and before drinking water to proper hydrate myself
and finally leave over another 20 mins between water and breakfast. The
result is I have my breakfast at 11.30-12, which is too late if I wanna be
hungry for an early dinner.

Regarding calorie intake, I eat what cron-0-meter suggests me to
maintain my weight (around 2000). I'm 5'8" and weigh 120 lbs. I work at
home and consider to be fairly sedentary apart from my yoga practice and
my starting-to-run routine.

My questions are:
Is it normal that I feel tired when I wake up?
Am I doing good by waiting in bed or maybe I shouldn't listen to my body
and go straight to the treadmill?
What could I do to wake up feeling more energy?

Highly appreciative of your response,
