Daily UpdateHey guys, thanks for coming to check out my update. I’m going to attempt to post these on a daily basis, or at least as often as possible.

So here goes…

How I’ve Been Feeling

I’ve been feeling quite fatigued and catatonic as of late. I’ve actually been experimenting with not eating meat after listening to a podcast about the kinds of things they do to our meat.

No, I’m not talking about the cruelty with which they treat animals. If you want to eat meat, I totally think that’s fine, and I have for many years. For me, this is an experiment more than anything else.

One of the things that inspired me was how people live in the Blue Zones. Supposedly, they only eat meat during celebrations, and it’s one of the reasons why they live so long.

Well, I’ve been giving it a try for the last month or so. I’ve only eaten meat about three times – that’s probably twice more than I should have (band BBQ is a celebration, no?). But only three out of 84 meals this month is not bad.

Anyway, today was actually one of those times when I decided to eat meat. Weirdly enough, I felt an almost instant boost in energy levels – this is quite the opposite of what I thought would happen.

But whether or not there is a direct correlation between what I’ve been eating and how I’ve been feeling, I don’t know for sure. What I do know is that I’ve felt energetic for the first time in a while.

And for those who say I’ve probably been vitamin B deficient don’t know what I’ve been consuming.

Anyway, let’s move on.

What I’ve Been Working On

I’ve mostly been working on client and project work today. I would love to say that I’ve worked on my music, my podcast, or a blog post for The Music Entrepreneur, but that simply hasn’t happened. I did work on a bunch of posts for Outsource Blog Content though, and that’s another passion project of mine, so I can at least say I did something for me.

You may have noticed that I released a single in May and June, and was hoping to keep pace with that release schedule, but July has been difficult. I was sick for about a week, and as I mentioned earlier, I have been feeling tired.

Admittedly, I have had a crazy year so far, so I’ve been taking lots of breaks and even days off to let myself recover. That’s been good.

But I’m also looking to get some guests in to do some backing vocals on the new track, so coordinating that takes a little more time and effort than it would for me to complete the single entirely on my own.

It has been a while since I’ve recorded vocals, so that’s another aspect of the project that presents a bit of a hurdle. But honestly I think it’s going pretty well – I just need to re-record the verses.

But in the meantime I have been working on new songs or alternate versions of songs that already exist, so there is definitely more music to come.

I guess that’s about it for today. The good news is that I’ve been feeling good and getting lots done.
