This is how PCPers look when doing frog jumps, I mean tiger jumps. And exactly like a tiger roar is how it sounds after a set of those!
Last Saturday it was snowing softly so we decided to take a walk in the woods. We walked for about 2 and a half hours up and down hills on soft snow. It was very cold and with heavy jackets and boots I felt that the exercise was intense. So I didn't jump that night and had just enough energy to do the rest of the workout, which is getting harder and harder. I liked the new chest dips because apart from strength you need to find your balance. I couldn't do many of those dips....
Sunday I took my weekly picture, not much change but let me tell you that I am getting some muscles. It must have been after that night's work out, because today I have nice shoulders, they just popped up!
Now, Sundays I am very lazy. I wake up late, drink coffee slowly and read. That's why I wonder if there is a PCP brunch. Something so powerful that you can have breakfast, morning snack and lunch in one. Is there such a thing for lazy Sundays? Because after a late breakfast and a book so good, I was already late for lunch, and didn't have any snack the whole day. When it was time to work out I wasn't feeling the power. I jumped only 900 times and at the end of the exercises my legs and arms didn't want to respond.
After today's mail from Patrick I know that egg whites are a must and snacks are very important if I want to have a good work out.
The new diet is working fine on me. Now I get hungry in between meals and it feels easier to eat snacks.
My daily intake of egg whites is higher and there are less grams of carbohydrates, except at breakfast!!!
I think I'm getting faster at eating which is necessary to do all the other stuff of life.
What I haven't been able to do is yoga the way I wanted. I do some asanas after the workout but I don't feel like waking up much earlier to do an hour of proper yoga before breakfast. I need to sleep, I enjoy my heavy sleep of these days. Maybe I should try harder to make time for the practice, push myself a little harder in that sense too. But sometimes I think I need to take it easy because to be honest I don't have lots and lots of energy yet. Perhaps in some more days I will be needing less sleep and being more efficient in the rest of daily duties and then, yoga will flow.
Hope you have a nice Monday!!!
