A little patience...

So far I'm liking the workouts. Kicks, stretches, punches - YUM! I missed moving my lower body this way during the PCP.

The stretches are the most challenging thus far - getting into them is pretty fun, but holding them without too much fidgeting, boredom, restlessness is the real work. In meditation my mind is fairly quiet, or it drifts to calm, soothing places, like the beach, like the future of my dreams. During the stretches the concentration and attention to form and breath (breathe, breathe into the pain) wear me out. I guess this says something about my state of mind right now!

I'm also worried about going from 15-18 minutes of jumping to like, almost zero. Will the fat start creeping back? I'm going to let it go, trust in the Patrick/Chen process and see what happens!


  1. I have the same worries. The reduction in the amount of jumps, sit-ups, planks, push-ups, chin-ups is really throwing me off. I have to keep reminding myself that this is only the first week.

  2. I love the stretching! I've been jumping 10-15 minutes first, and then starting the kung fu body workout with the 4 sets of 100. That way, I figure I'm at least getting in the regular workout...especially since this week, I've been all EAT WHATEVER I WANT WHILE I STILL CAN!

    See you Saturday?

  3. All those kicks must have a super high calorie burning effect! And... i guess soon we will have 1500 jump sets!
