WorkoutWeek 1.23.16


Workout Notes

This week was weird.  On the one hand, my Greek lessons and Greek homework took up an enormous amount of my time, making it harder to make room for working out.  On the other hand, I had a lot of stress manifesting itself physically, and I found that a good cardio workout went a long way toward making me feel better.

Exercise…making me feel…better?  Wow.

I’m continuing with my 30 Day challenges and Sworkit app.  In addition, I walked about four miles every weekday – mostly from Syntagma to Pangrati and back (the metro station to my Greek class).  So all in all, it was a very active week!

Food Notes

Another weird thing.  I…didn’t eat much this week?  Maybe due to stress, but usually when I’m stressed I OVEReat.  I don’t know.

My eating schedule most days was this:  eat cereal for breakfast at 9:00, eat a snack (strawberries/little pastry/etc) at 1:00, eat dinner at 7:00 when I got home.  I kept having 300 or 400 calories left over every day, but I never kept myself from eating when I was hungry.

Is this normal?  If you’re walking a lot, do you stop being hungry?  Maybe so, because today I stayed in my room most of the time, and I found myself snacking a lot.  Hmmmm.  Maybe it’s not so mysterious.

NEXT WEEK’S GOAL:  20 minutes at least 5 times this week.

(I have less and less time due to my Greek lessons 1.5 hours away,
so I don’t want to push my luck.)
