Day 40

After Shivani's encouraging tale about rope jumping in the morning, I gave it a try. 
It is harder for the mind than for the body. It's harder to think that you are not going to drink a coffee and read your mail but instead that you are going to leave your warm room and begin to sweat, count and swear.

Once you pass the first 300 jumps it's fine.  And because it's day time and getting warmer I could open the door to the garden and jump while the plants were bouncing with me and the rain was falling. 

But I couldn't jump more than 800. My knee is not perfect yet. So maybe I will try and finish the jumps before the rest of the workout later in the evening.

Yesterday I sucked at the exercises. I can't do the pistol correctly because I don't want the knee to work so hard yet and I couldn't finish the creeps; there was a some discomfort in the knee.

I guess I will have to be patient.

I am doing really fine with the new diet. Smaller portions are good for me!


  1. Awesome that you tried the jumps! Yes, it is a mental battle to just start lifting your feet off the ground...this morning I'm in bed with my coffee and my work!

    The pistol squats will get better I hope (I have the same issue)!

    You look great!

  2. Shivani, one more victory for the coffee!!! :)
    Who will win tomorrow coffee or jump?
