On to the next steps

In the end, I used the reboot more for trying out some new techniques around time management, eating and shopping, etc. than I did for driving to better health....although I am in better health. Many of the new techniques failed to have any kind of noticeable impact, which is too bad. I need to get at least an extra hour of productivity into my days to crush Kenzai as I would like. My failure to blog and my failure to skip as often as the program defined were the results, and that is not acceptable heading into KB2. I am working with a new time management structure that is feeling a bit better, pushing higher priority items earlier in the day and trying to remove low value distractions.

Mentally I am all fired up for KB2. I spent the last week eating largely on point and getting the workouts in, so I finished strong following a mediocre showing overall.

Huge thanks to Kim and also to all the folks in Cambria. Look forward to seeing everyone in the months ahead!!

A simple and honest question: What is going to be different this time to make KB2 work for you?

    Mainly, I'm not sick. That was the big crush the first time around. The mediocre life events that hit in the early weeks of the program were also tough to manage through, but life will happen around the program, and I think I have prepped up for that......although even there things are better as my wife just wrapped up her 6 month fellowship work, which had added a lot of burden onto my plate, making time
    management that much more critical.

    On the time management front, there have been a few changes that have been helpful, but the main one for Kenzai is re-shaping my day. my afternoons are usually the time where i have the most flexibility, but it can be hard to work out in the few hours following the large Kenzai lunch. I now am structured where my workout should take place in the first 4 hours of the day, before lunch. if i am working out innthe evening more than 2-3 times per week i will need to re-examine.

    Finally, i just dont see me not succeeding twice.

      It is just as important to find out what doesn't work as what does work. Great that you used this Reboot as a bit of trial and error. It will save you having to use the first weeks of KB2 messing around with your schedule. As you've said, your cardio and community weren't strong aspects of this Reboot and you noticed an impact in your results because of it. You've identified problems and now you can take steps to fix them and crush KB2. Congratulations, I'd call this Reboot a success and COMPLETE!

        Sounds like you needed some time to tweak your routine & now you have more armour to take on KB2.

        Whatever works - stick with it & you know the routine. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Your discipline & hard work will reward you.

        Of course, there are blips. No 90 days are ever going to be perfect no matter what your best intentions are.

        Brett- good luck & enjoy!
