Sigh. A bit better than the view out my brooklyn window of 4 hair salons all in a row...
So, I took it easy up here today - lots of time in the sun, I finished my novel, chatted with my cousins. minimal movement outside of the PCP workout and some light chores. I'd say less activity than when I'm at home (i.e. no bike commute), but I think that's ok as it's the whole point of this vacation - rest rest rest!
Speaking of rest, another 10 hours of sleep last night! woohoooo! had some crazy dreams! in one, i went to a play where one of my old boyfriends was unexpectedly the lead, and where he then fed me figs and pickled beets in front of everyone as part of the show! whooooaaaa. I guess that's your answer to the "how's pcp effecting your thoughts about sex?" question, Patrick! haha!
Anyway, not much else to report. I'm excited to have the lighter dinner of fruit and milk and egg whites tonight. This past week I've felt that I'm developing more muscle for sure, but not necessarily shedding the fat as much, so my theory is that the dinner & evening snack variation to this week's diet will change that. we shall see!
Oh! New workouts this week are wicked awesome! Love the 1-2 punch on legs and back and abs - feels good and i'm really slammed by the end of it, but it leaves me very energized - such a great difference from those days of running that just left me feeling worn out. Lately I can't stop preaching and thinking about how much better these workouts feel, in so many ways, than the long runs and monotonous swims of my past. I do love swimming, but it got really boring after 2 years of my own sets and drills without a team or water polo (which I used to play in high school). I agree with Jenny and Tara though - swimming is where it's at in terms of feel-good exercise. Up here I've just been frolicking in the lake (more like floating than swimming) and it just feels fantastic. Good for the soul!
Speaking of the soul, I'm going to get some awesome soul-boosting fun tomorrow when we spend the day water-skiing! Will definitely have pictures to share, so stay tuned!
