Last week I had gained two pounds 😦 This week I lost 0.6 lb. 0.6! I am starting to think that I may be in the midst of another plateau. The other possibility is that I have gained muscle. I also ate a lot this week. Yesterday I ate an entire can of Pringles… in one day… let’s not even talk about that.
Exercise-wise, I killed! I did 1-2 hours of exercise everyday. Here’s this week’s schedule:
- MONDAY: (AM) 30-minute swim – (PM) 55-minute ZUMBA
- TUESDAY: (AM) 55-minute ZUMBA – (PM) 50-minute YOGA
- WEDNESDAY: (AM) 30-minute swim – (PM) 55-minute REP REEBOK (group weights class)
- THURSDAY: (AM) 30-minute swim – (PM) 55-minute ZUMBA
- FRIDAY: (AM) 30-minute swim & 55-minute ZUMBA
- SATURDAY: (AM) 55-minute REP REEBOK & 55-minute ZUMBA
- SUNDAY: (PM) 55-minute ZUMBA
This is what I have to say about my workout schedule this week:
Food-wise, I was hungry a lot this week. Way more than usual. I didn’t crave any of my really bad foods, that was good, but I snacked way too much. Still not sure what that is about. Maybe it’s the exercise. In any case, I will keep monitoring my appetite and perhaps will need to visit a nutritionist or psychologist if it continues.
I didn’t make much progress on my books this week. I am still on The Returned by Jason Mott and I have also picked up The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker, a very fascinating read (both really).
I finally went to the movies on Friday and watched Divergent (while eating popcorn and peanut M&Ms). As expected, they made a lot of changes from the book; some trivial, some not so much; but overall the movie was entertaining and I enjoyed seeing the characters from the book come to life.
Tomorrow I finally get to write my first Foodie PenPal Reveal post. I am beyond excited. If you follow me on twitter or instagram you have already seen some of the food I made. Come back tomorrow for the whole story.
Have a great week!
