Day 7 - a Sunday where I actually did stuff, and Day 8

  • Jul 18th, 2017 at 7:41AM

Like many Kenzai warriors, my alternate cardio for Sundays is often just getting the crap done that I haven't been able to do all week because I am on Kenzai. Run has a different flow, which has made it kind of interesting to me so far. I ended up actually doing the Sunday workout and was fired up for it, which was cool.

Today - day 8 - has been truly weird. During the summer, as I work from home, Mondays are always tough. With three kids there is always one kid who is going to a new camp or a new sport each week, and we need to make an adjustment. This week my eldest son started his first real job (working at a brand new French restaurant in town. Huge result frankly) and my wife is rounding at the hospital, so today ended up completely blowing up. I was out the door at 6:30 and never got the chance to make myself breakfast until 10:00. That was sub par, but then we had a bunch of minor emergencies around various items of paperwork (my daughter's camp lost her tetanus record, my bookkeeper was confused about a few items, my son's dentist apparently needed 8 pages of paperwork (seriously) filled out before she could fill a cavity tomorrow.....) and suddenly I was stuck deciding whether I should eat out at 2:00, or eat a fully compliant meal at 4:00. I ate out, which felt silly seeing as how I was set up really well for a perfect diet day, but in the end I ate fine, just not perfect.

We are having another day of thunderstorms here, so I will be running on the treadmill again.

do your best! i find i rely on fruit, and whole wheat bagels, and carrots to get me through weird scheduling that throws the food timing off. not perfect, but better than going hours at a time w/o fuel.

    Greg gives great advice here. Eat in the spirit of Kenzai when you can't nail it. But you know how to do this, and I know how you look forward to logging your perfect diet days. Kudos to you for navigating all this shit. Also - I guess you'll be dining at a french restaurant for your first indulgence!
