KB 3- Day 87! Day 87! Wow...

  • Jul 26th, 2017 at 11:44AM

How is everyone? How is it possible that it is Day 87?! Wow. Its been an interesting programme for me as its had a lot of impact - rather like KB1. I feel that something in my body has changed at a very deep level and its all good. For some weeks now I have had people asking about weight loss, and someone even saying they took a double take when I got out of lift to check if it was me. I definitely notice my clothes feel looser and I would say I have come down a full dress size. I wish I had taken my measurements, and have made a mental note to do that next time.
Even so, I have a long way to go. I am one of nature's Endomorphs, and I grew up in a family of both Ectomorphs and Mesomorphs. So I was always the odd one out and always a bit of a mystery. The great news is that with 2 young daughters (one meso one endo) I feel so well equipped and adjusted to cope with inevitable body woes in the future, and am striving to set the best possible example.
Feeling good coming to the end of this programme. It hasn't always been perfect, and has been insanely messy at times....but feeling like I have definitely given it my best and don't have any regrets. And feel I have some good results.
Looking forward, and bearing in mind my weight loss goal, do I do this again? Do I do Kettlebells (worried about my travel schedule a bit with this one), do I do Reach (mindfulness always good to learn - might enjoy the change of pace).
I am behind in some questions:
1. What would I want to master? A few things here - I used to windsurf as a kid, and gave that up - I wish I had not, but we moved from a beach side climate to the UK when I was a child and I did not take to freezing lakeside windsurfing clubs. I also used to tap dance - wish I hadn't given that up. And lastly, I have done yoga on and off through the years, and wish I had stuck at it more consistently.
2. If I woke up on a desert island, I would like to be 26 - had a great time in my mid to late twenties.
3. Where have I always wanted to go - Punta del Este - I love the good life, and a bit of fashion.

As for the last few days - 100%. All good on food and exercise.

The changes are huge! Well done for keeping it going despite all the challenges of travel etc.

    Anita, given your brutal travel schedule I am impressed with your commitment and glad to see your great results. Reach might be good as a post KB3 break and reignite your interest in yoga. I am impressed you are considering KB3 already. I never thought I would redo, but a bit like childbirth, I am forgetting the brutality and thinking of doing again at some point.

      Tap Dancing is officially the coolest. Only thing that even comes close is 80s pop-locking.

        Great post! I did Kettlebells earlier this year and had a big travel schedule (as always) - India, London, Korea.
        It's manageable - you've just got to plan ahead and make sure you check with the hotels that they have the bells.
        If you do it on the back of KB3 you will really enjoy the effects.

          Great post 😊 It was a great journey indeed.... You are a great example to your daughters.
          Then Reach or kettlebell??? I don't know what to do as well!

            Lovely post here so close to the culmination of the KB trilogy, Anita.

            In terms of next steps:

            1. 'Bells rocks. But they don't fit in the carry on luggage all that well.
            2. Reach is sneaky hard. And profoundly rewarding.
            3. Would you consider a skill course? Advanced jump rope, hand stand, cooking, meditation, or fashion. Sure you'll be eying up a bigger program, but a two week intensive might help clear the mind before you next leap in.

            Whatever you decide, you'll do so with the wind at your back and a fresh badge on your dash. Enjoy the final push!

              Love the enthusiasm in this post!

              I really loved the Kettlebells program but like Ward said it would probably be tough if you're doing a lot of travel. I did Reach and enjoyed it - with your yoga background you'll probably get a lot out of it.
