On an unrelated note: The cutest thing happened today! I left my exercise mat in the middle of the living room, and my cat was laying down on it in the center. Then, she got a sudden surge of energy and started doing all kinds of crazy flips all over the mat! She was chasing her tail and batting at the edges of the mat; it was cute. My BF said she was pretending to be me and doing her exercises for the day, lol! She neeever does things like that anywhere else, only on my mat! Wish I could've recorded it[/QUOTE]
Definitely film that next time!
Anyway, today's fitness!
Walk - one hour, with some climbing in the jungle gym.
- pistols: 40, against a door
- pullups: went to the local outdoor gym to do practice these...
Though saying "practice" is misleading...
- Chin ups: negatives, 3; 3; 3.
- Hanging leg raises: 7; 9; 9.
I found this bar much harder to work off than the ones I used last week.
Firstly, it's quite high, so I had to lever myself up off a step instead of jumping, which made the negatives a lot harder. And saying "negatives" is a bit misleading... It was more like hurdling towards the ground whilst holding onto a bar
Secondly, is it just me, or are thicker bars are much easier to work off?! I could barely hold on for the hanging leg raises. The thinner bar cut into my handies.
In between my attempts at working out, I used this machine (Elliptical?) for a couple of minutes.
Finally, this woman is the possessor of my new dream body...

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
