If you feel you must then take a nap after your workout and worjout every two days instead of everyday. Watch out for your calories cuz if you're eating too little that might be your problem good luck!!

Yeah I think 6 days a week may be overdoing it. As for calorie intake I do not monitor my calories. I am not looking to lose weight. I am 5'6 and 125lbs. I have actually increased my eating so I don't lose any weight. I am looked to get my muscle tone, endurance, and overall well being back. My sister counts every single calorie she even looks at and the other sister is recovering from a serious eating disorder.
