KB 3 - Day 60. Yikes.

I decided to use today's workout to do my silent workout. Why oh why. I almost cracked a few times. The skipping was never ending and I never really hit a rhythm. Then the negatives took an eternity. The whole workout was a lot more challenging and hard to do. Looking forward to getting the tunes back on tomorrow!
Hoping to do something a bit different on Sunday as per instruction. I am guilty of opting for a run or a hike. I will see if I can find a yoga class.
Kryptonite - all savoury snacky things with a glass of vino. Nuts, cheese, olives with champagne, red or rose. Gets me every time - have to pull out super human strength to avoid. Although have noticed lately how awful it makes me feel! hmm.....

It's been a tough week or so. Travel last week, then a last minute family visit, my daughters birthday party, one more final farewell party, and now a business trip to India. I'm ashamed to say that over the last week I missed 2 workouts. That's never really happened before- I normally at least manage to squeeze in an emergency workout. I just could not keep all the balls in the air. Some food deviance crept in too. I am not out the woods yet either as I'm finding delhi hard dietwise. I tend to end up under eating and even when I ask for no salt, everything tastes so salty. Leave for home tomorrow night - bit better get used to it as I've 2 more weeks of travel after this.


KB 3 - Day 52

Ok. Good start to today. Normal brekkie. I spent the day staring at focus groups and had smuggled in a mostly veggie with a little cheese sandwich for lunch as I was with fasting colleagues (I know, not 100% compliant, but there was only smoked salmon and wasn't sure that could cope with full on KL conditions). Banana mid afternoon. Dinner was a salad and some yoghurt. No apple, no egg whites. So, not a terrible disaster, but not great either. My motto in life : MUST TRY HARDER!

I seem to have gone a bit off track since my indulgence. I'm behind in my blogging and reading up on lessons. I've crept in bites of things- a cracker here, a bite of the kids dinner there, some missed egg whites. And I missed last fridays workout altogether. Wtf??!!
Ok- so I've given myself a good talking to. I need it as I've just kicked off a travel cycle- now in kl. need to reign it in now as it can unravel easily when travelling. The temptation of the lounge always looms. My new mantra: what would Ren do? He would not eat a horrible lounge biscuit etc. It's helping.
I like this weeks workouts as they aren't so time consuming. Although those sky kicks made me feel quite ill. And any 21s on abs are a sad sight.
My indulgence was excellent. Champagne and dim sum. Very indulgent. Didn't feel guilty and felt ok afterwards. I wish I could say it made me feel ill- but it did not.


Overslept but I KNEW I had to get my workout done this morning. So...had to bust out the emergency workout. I have a leaving do that I can't not go to tonight. I will be glad when this week is over.
I have to report, although extremely bored with the same same old at the moment, I feel FANTASTIC ! LIke really really good. Full of beans, energy and positive vibes. So, using that to get me through the blahs.
Which brings to the indulgence....yay...goody! I have ANOTHER (last and final) HK leaving do tomorrow. Its brunch. And I am going to have a lovely glass of champers and some dim sum. That's the plan. Can't wait.


Kb 3- day 46. Mule mode.

Got up. Did my workout first thing. Which felt good. Have swapped my lunch and dinner round today as have a dinner out. All grams so far so good. Just muling.


Kb 3. Day 45. Tough

These days are tough. I haven't felt this low in the valley for a while. Struggling with time today. Mum arrived from uk, kids excited to see her so want to say home all afternoon. Tried to work from home then a series of conference calls tonight. Husband passed out most of the day in my workout space( our bedroom). And rain. Sooo...made an executive decision. Went running in the rain for 45 mins. That way at least I have done something. 2 long days coming up- going to have to wake at 5am for both of them if I'm going to make the workouts. Thank god for the indulgence. I have the last of a series of leaving dos coming up on sat and I think I need it!


Ok, for this blog to make sense, I think I need to go back in time. My last blog was on Thursday, just before I was going for a work lunch. I stuck to plan, and had a fresh tuna burger, with some baked wedges and a salad. Told them to hold the mayonnaise. Did not partake in the ice cold beers and glasses of rose and prosecco that was going on around me (even though it was REALLY hot in HK, and those beers looked amazing). So, overall, stayed strong and was pleased by this. Went home, did my workout, all good.
Friday - all day - 100% compliant - all good
Saturday -decided to swap Sunday and Saturday workouts around. This was because I really wanted to do Yoga on Sat morning. I decided to run to yoga class (30 mins - very hot - very sweaty), did the class, had my breakfast, then my lunch. All good.
Saturday afternoon, went to a leaving do bbq. Stayed strong and just ate a cup of strawberries (afternoon fruit snack) and water. Did not deviate, despite the pizza, crisps, nuts, olives, cupcakes etc that were being thrust at me. Avoided the amazing wine and refreshing looking G&Ts (despite lots of people DESPERATE to get me to have a drink : "you look great", "you look young", "Yeah you're bigger, but OWN it" type talk - gads!).
Sunday- when I have no engagements and no pressure, it suddenly all falls apart. I go for dim sum and have a spring roll. I then decide that I am too tired for the workout. Walked right through that open crack. Then when the kids are in bed, inner GROK went mental and I had a glass of wine, and a cracker, and some cheese. Thiswas all on my own with no one to pressure me. Then I freak out, panic, get in to bed as I figure I may as well get some sleep. I set my alarm for 5.30am this am as I am feeling so awful at missing yesterday's workout.
This morning I hit snooze. All my grams are prepared and I will do the workout later. But I really can't understand myself sometimes!

Oh...my sacrifice.....definitely the weekend drinks with friends. Kills me.


Day 40....oh only day 40!! Only 50 more days to go. I can do this...I can do this....I can do this....
Ok, so the negatives were really tough. Observations: They take a LONG time. It took me 14 minutes to get through my lunges. Just that one exercise. Another observation - Motown greatest hits sets a good rhythm for the reps for the rest of the workout. Really looking forward to the negative X sits.

Well....all is going well. But I have peeked at the workout I am going to do later today and feeling fearful! Even more terrified that on Day 39 the workouts are SO HARD!!! Total panic.
We have a work lunch out today for someone's leaving do. Going to have to stay strong.


Feeling so much better now I've got some 100% days behind me- whoop whoop! But the workouts! Argh! I'm in serious pain all day long. Plus I think I was doing something wrong in yesterday's abdominal 21s- just didn't get any burn while I almost pass out during metronomes!


Well...I have to face facts. My holiday threw my programme to the wind and got back to Hong Kong yesterday, am on track today so feeling up to blogging. Things were ok for the first couple of days. At my mum and dads, weighing my grams, doing my workout no problem. Then I went away with friends from school to San Sebasti√°n and it unravelled. I'm talking cheese, olives, wine, the lot! No workouts although we did and hour of yoga and an hour of walking and/or surfing everyday. By the time I got back for my final days in London, I had crossed to the other side and couldn't get back. I even had a croissant on my last morning. I considered abandoning the programme then reasoned I still have 2 months left and time to recoup my weeks loss. On it today, and workouts done. Feeling much better.


Was my dads birthday yesterday. Threw the diet off a bit. Have managed to avoid the beers today but grammage suffering as I was out with my mum for lunch. I have never been able to do this in London without the kids since they were born. No one can understand why I'm not hitting the rose hard! Been getting the workouts done and just going to have to live with the fact that things are not going to be perfect until this trip is over and I'm back at home.


KB 3 - Day 22.

Have had some excellent days behind me, and yesterday a not so good one. I left HK on Sat night to come to the UK. In the UK I had a full welcome party waiting - with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs etc. With the jet lag and the many treats I kind of muddled through. Did do my workout - a very long 1.5 hour hike - just what I needed after the flight. Was excellent on the plane and last week was perfect except for one celebratory glass of champagne with my husband (am I detecting a them here?!). Determined to nail today - all the amazing fruit and veg in the UK....and asparagus is in season! yum!


All good. Had a few excellent days behind me so feeling better. I'm finding the workouts tough. All those v sits. Metronomes. Ugh.
