Not much to report today. I had a full day and work and I don't usually train on Saturdays so again it was a rest day for me.
I have got my hands on a Yoga DVD and a Pilates DVD. I got Rodney Yee's Yoga for Beginners and then the Stott's Pilates Core Challenge. I do feel I need a stronger core. It is strong already, but I don't feel like I have a good mind-muscle connection for that area of my body like I do other muscles. It actually takes a lot of mental energy for me to focus on keeping my core/midsection tight when I am performing exercises. I'm hoping that by doing this Pilates routine regularly that I will improve the mind-muscle connection and therefore I'll be stronger and be able to lift a little more. The Yoga DVD is to get me into a routine of stretching and relaxation because I can be SOOOO lazy with stretching on a regular basis.
Food Today, in order of appearance
Chicken Breast & Large Salad
Handful of Raw Almonds
A few Marshmallows
Home made pizza - I made two flavours: caprese (tomato, basil & buffalo mozzarella) & Chicken, Camembert & Cranberry
Sparkling Wine & 2 beers
I love making home made pizza but I hate making the crust. It's not really labour intensive, but it is so sticky and I hate how the dough sticks to my fingers. You almost need a helper to sprinkle flour for you.
