Lately I've augmented my workout schedule to complement life's current events, and from what I can tell it has been beneficial. I have 2-3 days a week where I'm not doing HIIT, but I'm still active - we're walking around the city, taking a break here and there to grab food. Bouts of low-intensity aerobic exercise coupled with high intensity workouts complement each other perfectly. Even though we've had to eat out a lot more often than usual, I've still been able to eat healthy by choosing protein dishes for my meals. I've made a more conscious effort to eat paleo / primal, which I'll discuss in a future blog update. Paleo isn't a fad diet to lose weight, but it's a way of eating for optimal health and fitness performance.
Basically what I've learned from the past few weeks is don't overtrain! Make sure you get enough food (healthy, nutritious and unprocessed food), enough sleep, and enough downtime. It takes some time and some trial and error to find that line between eating too much / being too sedentary, and overdoing it.
