Intro to Team Hemlock

  • Sep 15th, 2019 at 12:28PM

Hi Team,

I am based in Singapore and will mainly be training here in my condo; but like some many of the team I travel quite a lot and the next few months seem likely to see a spike in travel. I am on a flight to HK early tomorrow morning, so my resolve will be tested right away. I actually did my day 8 work out today as I can't be sure I will have time to work out tomorrow.

I like the discipline of Kenzai and on KB 1 I followed it pretty well, but I struggled with not 'treating' myself from time to time. I guess I have become accustomed to rewarding myself with some chocolate and / or red wine after a tough day at the office. I need to toughen up mentally on that side of things and I also need to plan better for my business trips. It is hard though, particularly when you have dinners with clients.

I am from Yorkshire in the UK but I have been living in Singapore and Jakarta for 21 years. So I crave the countryside and walking in the fresh air. I go back to Yorkshire at least once a year and I always enjoy it.

I hope you all have a good week ahead.

      Charlie, as you know the best results come from following the diet--80% of the program as I am sure you've heard multiple times by now. If there is any other thing you can treat yourself with, now is the time to switch it up. Perhaps throwing some money in a kitty each time you don't go for wine/chocolate and at the end buy something you would not ordinarily buy. As for dinners out, you can follow the no alcohol or sweets and put 1/4 carb 1/4 protein and 1/2 veggies on your plate. Where there is a will there is a way--as my mother used to say!

      I spent time in West Yorks as a young girl, it really is beautiful up there although winters can be quite dreary :-).

        Lots of travellers on this team. I won’t be travelling as much, but I share your love for chocolate and red wine! Let’s lean on each other to get through the cravings. All the best in HK!

          Hi Charlie, was just reading in your blog about all the positive changes you have seen in your family. That is so fantastic! My kids haven't picked up the exercise bug yet, but you have given me hope. This summer my 8 year old was making veggies scrambles for breakfast, so you know they are definitely watching and paying attention. The more active we are as parents, eventually we have to believe that our kids will become more active as they follow our example. Good job being a great role model!
