I definitely think you did too much and your body told you so, that means you should listen to it. Age (old or young) your body knows it's limits. It's different if you are working out and pushing yourself versus going and going on various activities after knowingly being tired.
I truly understand choirs have to be done! What I've decided to do and have been implementing is a to-do-list then mark the days of the weeks by them. I use to try to get so much done in one day and truly found myself exhausted, neglecting my health and diet.
If it does not have a deadline, it can wait! Your health does have a deadline and that's every day! Easier said than done and I know but just try it.
I have an exercise routine as well. Try to create an exercise routine and then switch it up after a month or so. For instance, M/W/Sat I do cardio. On Saturday's I use to play flag football and now that the season has ended, I'm going to now train for my half marathon by running on Saturday's but still walk at home on M/W with Leslie Sansone. Slowly, I will incorporate running on another 2 days of the week. Sun/Tues/Thurs, I do circuit training, Jillian's Ripped 30. It's meant to do for a month but I've decided to do it for 2 months, completing each week twice. After I finish that DVD, I'm going to try her Kickboxing for a month or two as well. So that'll make my new routine (running and kickboxing)!
I do a lot at home because of my small children but I always try to make sure to take of myself. Motherhood and wife duties call on US a lot but...as MRSVK11 pointed out, WE are important too so I'm taking that in stride, one day at a time :)
Sorry for the long note
I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)
