Great Workout today.

I had an outing that went late last night, had to keep workout to just cardio, which was back to jump ropes for a session since I have been substituting with other (longer) cardio sessions. Today I was like fully rested man, and went through the sets like there was no tomorrow, encountering form failure here and there which is alright by me. The abs workout was extra hard as I had put in an 8 minutes of abs session (not the 8 minute abs) on an exercise ball to change things up as recommended. Sadly I could not bear to do the whole 1:45 of planks with my abs already in a weakened state. But anyway I went through all 4 sets and inserted some variations of situps with raised legs in there.
Eating went well today, ran out of eggs, then restocked like a crazy guy now there are nearly thirty eggs in the fridge ripe for boiling and consumption at some point in the next 1 week...
PCP gym observation assignment. I actually just looked inside through the glass window of my old gym (I cancelled the membership at the start of PCP). When I was a member there I enjoyed it sometimes, but for some reason it never became a centerpiece to my workout haha (what?)... Well I didn't really know anyone else with a membership at that gym and always had it in my mind to go there at times that were convenient, fitting it in. There are a bunch of trainers, but I never really wanted to get into the trainer route. Definitely not now that I am PCP ready with my at home travel ready workout set. Strange thing about this particular gym is the emphasis on trainers... and yet not many going there are in their 'peak condition' why is that? I would say it was probably the insane cost of having a trainer in addition to gym membership costs. Most people don't have that much combination of willpower and monthly fitness expense account to do something like a 90 day trainer-dietitian-mentored 6 day a week of gym weight training/ cardio and 1 day of gym cardio training session with 7 days a week of no nonsense training-based eating while depositing cash all the time to the gym even if they miss sessions. Well PCP wins in trainer efficiency and cost and in combining diet and exercise into one program so expensive gym memberships are probably not on the horizon anymore once I finish this program.
Observation two. Fitness training in a group is good, in the absence of PCP and the blogging ecosystem, it is probably a good idea to make your fitness program a social activity. Bring your workout partner, talk about good healthy recipes, join a regular team or club. Heck post shirtless muscle posing pictures of yourself all over the internet until the department of Homeland Security starts to ask you questions about them, and about those creeping motions you are doing outside. What is that? Creeping? Yeah we creep.
