Back on track GRADUATION POST
Reboot was a great reminder that regular exercise and a conscious diet are basic ingredients for a life were your body is support and not burden. I'm feeling great after one month of Reboot and I will continue with my daily exercise (and an occasional beer).
I am a lousy food blogger. Forgot to take the photo before starting the meal. The tilapia topped with herbs and onion was great. I kept the sauce at the bottom of the plate.
Week 1 worked out fine for me. Rope jumping hurts though. Unfortunately my favorite place for jumping has turned white overnight and its cold!!
Almost exactly 4 years after PCP and after learning a lot about diet, exercise and life, I am back for a fresh-up. Let's see how it goes.
Greetings to all fellow Rebooters!
Quality of Life GRADUATION POST
Thanks to Patrick, Sarah and the PCP team for guiding me to some key principles to achieve a higher quality of life. I learned so much in getting the ship back in shape and how to hopefully keep it that way. Congratulations on a very impressive personal training model. Stay virtual, and beware of the food and health industry. Some stats: weight down 10 % to 90 kg, no change in height! All the best to the fellow PCPer. Stay fit forever.
The final days of PCP are here. And I am prepared: vacation on a small island with lots of fresh air (no warm air though), fresh fish, no cars (only walking and bicycling) and time for Le Finale. I am so grateful that I started this program. It changed a lot for me for the better. And now ready for the final sprint.
Which I did not. The Czech pilsener was too tempting. And it hit me hard. Eventually I lost 2 days of workout. Back on track now and looking forward to 2 more weeks of compliance.
As the days have turned warmer now, I took my first trips with the mountain bike. What a difference! Things are going much easier and there is plenty of power. PCP really shows. I am looking forward to some real climbs now.
Had a good week with great workouts on a sunny roof top. I followed Patrick's tip on ordering vegetarian food for long flights and it made a big difference: good sleep on the plane and arriving relaxed. Looking forward to the last third of PCP.
Off for a week to sunny Brazil. Looking forward to fresh fruits, vegetable and good protein. Hope to get the workouts under control despite long flights.
Have not blogged for a week - I was busy working out, preparing food and eating. No just kidding! Things are going really well. I lost some 4-5 kgs and feel so much better overall. I just found out that so far I only missed a single day of work-out (after my indulgence/birthday). I have been doing the rope skipping and workout early morning before breakfast during the whole program. Together with the 'all-inclusive' breakfast a great start for the day.
Despite harder work-outs I have not had any sore muscles at any time. Joints are fine too; knee joints are making some noise during the squats, but they have been doing hard work for a combined 100 years now. Not such a bad design!
What a day: Rope jumping only - indulgence(s) - birthday. Ready for week 5 with lots of energy. (s) is for small!
Got my pull-up bar mounted on Saturday. Long way to go to catch up with the target numbers. Will work on it daily.
