Tuesday workout: 3 mile TM run. 5 minutes weights (better than nothin’!)
Wednesday workout: Packing?
This has been quite a stressful, sleep-deprived week for me, and I’ve been trying my best to fit in at least a few workouts. I must confess, though, my eating habits have been horrible. I think the greatest volume of “food” that I’ve been consuming is chocolate and coffee. Literally. I think I had 4 LARGE cups of coffee today, spread out between 5 am when I got up and a few hours ago at 9:30 pm when I went downstairs to work on some residency stuff after doing some packing.
A few observations:
1. Powerpoint presentations always end up taking way more time than I expect. You’d think that after 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and now 3 years of residency I would have learned that by now. Apparently not.
2. I don’t know how people eat crappy and don’t exercise on a regular basis. I’m not saying that to be condescending or critical of others, but rather because I truly feel like complete shi* from the way I have been eating this week. I feel gross and lethargic. I’ve been consuming tons of empty calories–that is, calories that have little to no nutritional value–and I totally feel a difference in the way I feel. Too many people underestimate the effects of nutrition on their bodies. There is some truth to the saying that “you are what you eat”.
3. Moving is both exciting and stressful. I’m excited, because I will be moving in with my “best friend”, and I LOVE our new loft, but trying to coordinate cleaning, packing and getting stuff out of one place and into the other is a pain in the as$
Speaking of cleaning and getting ready to move, I’ve discovered that not only am I chocolate malt ball based on what I eat, but I am also hoarder:
Ok. Just kidding. I’m not that bad, but I did find some interesting things that I probably should have gotten rid of a long time ago, such as a some 1.44 MB floppy disks, a disposable kodak camera, a cassette “walkman”, multiple very old cell phones, and a checkbook with my college address on it:
Do you still own things that are “antiques”, like a cassette player or non-smart phone?
How many cups of coffee do you drink a day on average?
On a work day, normally 1-3 (~10 oz) “cups” (1-2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon)
What kind of stuff do you eat when you are stressed? Notice a difference in how you feel?
I apologize for not visiting several of my “virtual friends’ blogs recently. I just have to get through this weekend, and then I look forward to relaxing (in my new place!) with a glass of win in my hand and my computer on my lap. Hope everyone is having a good week!
