Day 49 - Egg Whites a-go-go
- Mar 3rd, 2012 at 5:43PM
Two months ago if anyone had told me I'd be looking forward, yearning, in fact... to a plain egg white omelette on Saturday afternoons, I'd have laughed in their face. "haha" I'd say... "you must be joking". No more. Even with my more than occasional dietary indiscretions, I'm down the better part of 5kg and about halfway to the target weight I'd set at the start of PCP.
I may not have a six-pack coming out the other side of the program, but I'm banking on fitting into size 32 Calvins with no muffin top, as the ladies say.
My only regret is that if I'd actually stuck to the diet so far, I'd probably be down a lot more! But the benefits of this thing are really starting to show. My first attempts at the dreaded V-Sit were a total comedy, and now I can snap out 8 to 10 on the first set no worries, and struggle on through the rest of the sets pretty nicely.
I had a nice run around the palace today, and it's great to feel taut in my upper back and shoulders, and to feel the gentle uphill slope on the backside of the run (pun intended).
Had an excellent yoga practice today too, with my teacher the amazing Yoshie, who continually reinforces how the core strength I'm building through this program is helping my yoga, which along with running is my long-term fitness thang.
Week 8 baby. Bring it on.
