KB 3 - Day 15 - Totally off the rails there for a bit

  • May 15th, 2017 at 11:31AM

Hi
Its been a tough start and I feel like I need to confess some major mishaps. Days 1-7 was a long good bye to my favourite foods - almost a binging type attitude as I knew what was to come. This was disappointing and a bit of a nod as to why I struggle so badly off Kenzai. I feel like I am in danger (and in fact, last month, reality) of lurching in a boom to bust way - on diet: good, then off diet; binge.
Then week 2. Started well, and all good. I was travelling for work (Seoul). Then, a preorganised meet up with a friend from Shanghai who flew over (Monika C) so we could hang, enjoy the city and fit in one last regional trip before her return to the US. And I went totally off the rails. Food wasn't too bad - kind of stuck to it loosely. But had 2 nights out on martinis and g&ts. It was like Kenzai was a parallel universe that I wasn't in!
As you can imagine, the remorse has been intense, and I have had to have a good talking to myself. My blogging and team mate support has been bad too, and that I put down to having had a very intense schedule over the last couple of weeks, where I am just about keeping up with everything. Ditto the lessons. I have to read 7 lessons in a row when I finish this. All this culminates in not feeling "close" to the programme, which we all know is very dangerous ground. I have been down this road before, with a not great attempt at KB 2 around 18 months ago. I am determined to not to repeat the performance. I know that if I have one good day behind me, other good days follow. I am getting a little stressed about an upcoming holiday to the UK. I really don't want to be derailed.
There, feel better for getting it down. Now just need to get on with it!

Hey Anita - well done for blogging it out. Don't worry about the slips made, it happens to the best of us. Draw a line through it and move forwards with commitment. If you have a solid run of compliance from now until your trip to the UK then this foundation will make getting derailed less likely. You are right that one good day is where it begins, do one day, then three, then seven, and you will be right on track. Have a great week - you can do this!

    Your comment about Kenzai being a parallel universe really made me laugh. I went there too doing KB3 and it all came home to me when I was munching on a huge ice cream sandwich in NYC when I was supposedly in the midst of a programme! Well done for getting back on track and you're still looking amazing in your pictures so doesn't seem like too much damage has been done.

      Good to see support for you myself and others who have all let's say fubar'd things to now a touch. Repeating what everyone else is saying is that 10-11 weeks will fix all wrongs be it from injury or bedding down

          Anita - your sins are also mine! We can get through this. I love seeing friends that I haven't seen for a while/won't see again for a while but they are a nightmare for staying compliant! But what can you do?! Keep going, step by step and progress will come.

            Anita, I feel your pain and gone through exactly the same- however I know that kenzai works so whatever you did before is forgiven and does not compromise your ability to move forward providing you get back on the bus- which it looks like you are. It is amazing how many people are going through a bit of an Oops in the first week or so. for me I must admit a university reunion in Yorkshire which is not noted for anything other than beer and pies and is astonishingly cheap as are the nespresso martinis!! but that is all behind us Anita!! good luck
