I have noticed that I have a lot of energy through the day now that I am following the Paleo diet. I am only on day 4, but my first two days I was only about 75-80% following the diet. I found that my only issue so far is that I am waking up quite early in the morning, but I am not sure if that is because I switched schedules or the fact that I am getting more sleep than I have in months!!
When I am at home with my fiance, wake up is at 4:45am, but now that I am back at the dorms, I dont have to get up until 8 or so. (I dont have class until 10 or 11, depending on the day.) But, the last couple of days, I have been getting up at 5:30-6:00 because I am completely rested.
I would workout at that hour when I get up, but the problem is dealing with living in a dorm with 3 roommates, and the fact that the workout room in the building doesnt open until 8. That is when it does open.
This morning I went down at 8:30 and it still wasnt open. I was seriously annoyed.
But starting next week, there is a new workout building opening across the street that is free to students. I plan on going and joining a free class or two so that I have something to do in the evenings. I read on the schedule that they have Zumba 5 nights a week in the evening, and I have been thinking about trying a Zumba class. Even if I take the class just 2 days a week, it would be an improvement over the little walking and basic exercise that I do now.
