Day 46

One day late but: CONGRATULATIONS for my fellow PCPers for those 45 days of hard work, cooking and transformation. Are you all prepared for what's coming?
I also want to welcome the new PCpers. I wish you a lot of fun.

These days I have been doing fine. My new diet is perfect in terms of quantity. I still have to fight a bit at the end of the breakfast to finish all the food but during the day I look forward to the snacks and I eat voraciously. I also have less egg whites in my menu, thanks a lot. What I'm missing is the fruit. I only get to eat one portion of fruit a day. To think that before PCP I didn't  eat fruit everyday. Now I'm falling in love with it's juicy sweetness.  Another triumph of PCP!

I'm trying to do the jumps in the morning. Somedays my will is strong, somedays the smell of coffee is stronger. When I jump in the morning my body feels heavier and I get exhausted faster but afterwards I feel great. Awake and speedy.

Since Friday I'm feeling better and stronger during my daily activities but the work out sessions are another story. I begin full of energy, doing as best as I can with leg jumps and squats, very happy because my knee is better. Then comes chest exercises or arms and I begin to loose power. Specially with the push-ups. I can only do one proper push-up. At the time of the planks I'm ready to collapse.
I notice more muscles in my body but I wonder if I'm doing something wrong because the progress with the push-ups is so slow.

Dear Patrick, when is our next indulgence? Tomorrow?


  1. I'm with you on the push-ups! My upper body is responding so slooooowwwwwwly.

  2. I time the indulgences based on the tea leaves in the bottom of my cup on the first cloudy day of the lunar cycle, so who knows?

  3. Thanks for the good luck wishes! I have a feeling I'll need it...

  4. I am similar to you in that breakfast is a chore to finish and the snacks can't come soon enough. Viva snacks!

  5. That was not funny, Patrick. ;)

    Those push-ups are different for me every time...are you stretching between sets?

    You LOOK very strong! Keep it up!
