Getting Phat with JH


Hey Everyone,

So today is actually Saturday... I think I was confused when I updated on Thursday because I said it was Wednesday when it wasn't. Hmmm.... should I be taking a vacation soon?

So my big news for the day, aside from my food and training, is:

I attended Jenny Hendershott's PHAT camp last night in Toronto! Woohoo!

It was Boot Camp Jen Hendershott Style!
I worked out with her Phat Campers sweating to her every command – Burpees, mountain climbers, bear crawl mountain climbers, dynamic planks on hands then on elbows, running, crunches – whatever she wanted us to do we did it!!


Thursday

Breakfast:
5 hardboiled eggs + 1 yolk
250 ml water with wheat grass
250 ml water with lemon juice
5 fish oil capsules
1/4 c. wheat germ
1/4 c. oatmeal (cooked in water)
2 tbsp. flaxseed
2 tbsp. bee pollen

Mid AM:
5 oz. tuna
2 stalks celery
250 ml water
chamomile tea

Lunch: I had to eat at my desk because I was busily working away... I'm sure a lot of you can relate to this
Grilled chicken breast
Roasted sweet potato
Water
Tea

Mid PM: I ate this in the car on my way to Belleville to attend my daughter's academic awards ceremony
1 sm. apple
1/2 liter water
4 sm pieces of melba toast
1 chicken breast

Dinner

2 sm. potatoes

I went to bed very hungry on Thursday night.... oh the joys of competition!

Thanks for sharing Phat Camp with us Tosca. The pictures are great.
I am wondering, with the amount of heavy training you are doing, if you are sore on a daily basis. If so, how do you ease the pain, do you take something, do you stretch more?

Thanks.

Thanks for the great post! I was curious, tuna is the only thing I have a hard time eating ( not because I don't like it ) but because it's dry without mayo - what do you put on it, to help it go down with the celery? Thank you. Sherri

Hi Tosca,
Wed, Thurs, Fri...Sat...sometimes I don't know if I'm coming or going either...a busy schedule and doing the iron thing can do it to you...keep up the good work, stay 'focused', tomorrow is Suuuundaaaaay ...you look amazing - never forget that you inspire people when you reach out to them through written word - so it doesn't really matter what day it is!
Me.

Why do you drink water with the juice of one lemon every morning?
