Welcome to Lapis! (Or, What Would You Say to Your Day 1 Self)

Today kicks off Day 1 for new trainees embarking on their journey to get in the best shape of their lives. Nothing more exciting than that! I remember my Day 1- April 1, 2012- Little did I know I was jumping into a program that would shape my life beyond fitting into some skinny jeans. My whole outlook and self perception was about to get turned upside down, inside out.

But those shifts didn't happen over night as much as I wished they did. Nope, they happened sloooowly day by day over the course of the 90 days. That was hard for someone who wanted the TPS reports like, yesterday. So what wise words do I have for these Jedi knights? Be open, be consistent, and whatever you do, don't cut your rope too short. (I've done that not once, not twice, but THREE times. Hit me up for tips on how NOT to do this.)

KB1 grads - what would you say to your Day 1 self?

Exciting! One day at a time. The next meal is another opportunity to get the food right and the next day is another opportunity to nail the workout....and as your amazing results show Cecilia, getting it right one day at a time adds up to fantastic results in just 90 days!

    Your friends and family love you, and they will be there at the other end, even if they don't quite get it.

      --pop up a tiny Reminder to yourself why you have committed to this course and remember it daily.
      --try and avoid getting too emotional with results if your not seeing great change instantly bec as sure as the sun shines it WILL come.
      -- Don't beat yourself up on tiny slips ,lifes for living.
      --there is NO 100% perfect.
      --nail the skipping, just do it ,regardless of how tedious is might get
      --NAIL.....................THE......................DIET...............!!!!

        I'd say "attention to detail Sharmali" . 2 things I discovered way into my pcp was that otter kicks were timed and not reps.. oops, and that there was a question of the week! Doh!
        KB1 newbies , read everything, especially each and every training lesson!

          I'll play along! Dear Day 1 Self,

          You thought you knew what it was like to feel tired. But you don't know a thing. Just wait. And when that tired shows up, it is a sign that you are doing it right. So don't be afraid. And don't quit. Stay the course. Because if it ain't rough, it ain't right!

            Great shout out Cecilia! I'd say make the process work for yourself. Don't be afraid to ask questions or put your hand up when you need something. I'd also say GET BACK ON THE HORSE if you get sick. It's not the end of your program, just a pause! Have a great program Ce and tell us what your tat says!! I can't make it out!

              1) Buy a pet chicken;

              2) Focus more on what you're gaining (i.e. muscle), and less on what you're missing out on (pizza & beer)

                1.) Keep grinding away at it every month, every year; you're in it for the long game 2.) Have fun!

                  Hi Cecilia now that I have a group of trainees, do they only have access to my blog updates? I'd like to be able to reach out to all 12 members of my group same time so how does that work?

                      You won't regret sticking with it.

                      And, on day 1 one I remember thinking I was in pretty good shape only to look back on day 90 and realize oh this is what it means to be in good shape!

                          OMG, there you are in my K Run Mistral Magdalena group, Cecilia. This is going to be a great ride--ahem, run--together. Will we not jump rope at all for six weeks?

                            Thank you O' Wise Ones! This almost makes me miss the unique challenges of KB1 and the first peek into the Kenzai universe. I know this collection of advice will be of some use to future trainees!
