Ok.. so 600 jumps is a long haul. I have to break it up to make it. What's the best way to do it?
definitely slipped up on my diet tonight. I feel awful about it but will start up fresh tomorrow. Disappointed with myself!
I am most surprised at my jump roping. I am making an extra effort to do all the jump roping. Today I went to a 45 minute spin class but still did the 400 jumps. It wasn't awful and I am waiting to hit that stride!
A little nervous about the diet this week. Need to figure out my timing for breakfast. For now, I will still be going to my spin classes (I do that for emotional strength more than anything) so I need to time my breakfast right.
I was also surprised and not in a good way how bad I looked in my initial photos. If that is not motivation I am not sure what is..
1. What inspired you to sign up for Kenzai Body?
This is my second time with Kenzai Body. The first time through was great. I felt so good but then life happened -- I turned 50, went into menopause (ugh) and spent the past 8 months dealing with a senior in high school applying to college. Now is the time for me!
2. In terms of the Kenzai Body challenge, what do you think is your greatest strength?
My greatest strength is following the food plan. It can be hard but when I do it I just feel better.
3. What do you think will be your greatest weakness?
Last time I really struggled with jump roping. I will admit last time if I did a different cardio I skipped the jump rope. This time I am not doing that. I am focused on getting better. Also last time, I struggled with the egg white dinners -- it just was such a boring taste.
Also my family can be a weakness. They love to eat their desserts..
I am excited to start KB again. I did it about 18 months ago and I need a fresh start. I am looking forward to feeling and looking better again. I am disappointed in myself because I have majorly fell off the wagon but I am ready to start over.
Second round completed GRADUATION POST
This round of KB (KB2) was definitely not as successful for me as KB1. The last 3 weeks I just couldn't get it together. We were away for 2 of those weeks. My diet was off but I worked out almost every day. The first time I did the program I was totally committed and very invested. This time around I let life get in the way. I have a lot going on with my family and when I had to prioritize activities Kenzai was not at the top of my list. I apologize to my online community for being MIA the past few weeks.
That being said, I learned a lot. I know how eating well makes such a huge difference. I feel so much better when I am eating a proper diet. Sure I slip up and have some sugar or nachos sometimes but I know to keep it moderation. I also feel good working out. I spin about 4 to 5 times a week and I have added weights into my workout plan. I can see a difference when I add the weights. It is daunting to think you need to do it everyday. Sometimes I am just tired.
I still have weight I want to lose and I have not gotten on the scale in weeks for fear of seeing a number I do not like. Not sure what I should do next. Thank you to everyone for your support through these past 90 days.
Hi everyone. Sorry it’s been so long. I will say I am motivated to look better but I am lacking the motivation to focus. I know what to do but being away from home makes it a little difficult. With two weeks left I am going to try to finish strong.
Well my kids are on spring break and we started college tours with my son. Staying on kb2 is really tough. Definitely fell off the wagon over the past 3 days but will get back on now.
Feel like all my blogs have been about struggling through this round. But it helps to get it out!
Well, I actually was able to do it (not as many as was suggested) but I didn't feel so uncoordinated. It is such a good feeling when you can actually do something that you couldn't before. Diet was good the past week (except for Saturday night)... we had dinner out that night and there were no egg whites on the menu but lots of veggies.
I know after KB1 and now doing KB2 that eating clean makes me feel so much better. I am definitely frustrated with myself as I have too many diet diversion.. Life gets in the way and this time through I am finding it harder to stay strict. I know clean eating will be a way of life for me from now on.
For the workouts, I like them but it can get lonely. Also some of the full body -- like the heel to butt are hard for me. I feel like such a klutz!
Day 50 is here and I have to say this round of KB has been really hard for me. I have ton going on and I feel like the days get away from me. Today I worked out and had a meeting and then I looked at the clock the day was half over and I had not really eaten. I know how horrible that this to do but it happened. I used to eat like that a lot. Or should I say not eat all day and then be starving at night. This is the first time in a long time I missed breakfast.
Also, we seem to have so many evening dinners out it is hard to keep to the egg white apple dinner. When I am home it is easy but when we have plans it is really difficult. When I did KB1 and we were on egg whites. I didn't really socialize for dinner. Unfortunately, that is just not realistic for me right now. When we go out I try to eat clean and I am pretty good at it but its not perfect. Sorry for venting. I do want to look tighter and I will focus over the next 40 days but I am nervous for my results.
Had a good weekend and definitely slipped. But I am glad to be back in the groove. I will rededicate myself this week. I will say this time around it’s harder to stay committed. I feel like I know how to eat well and every so often it’s nice to cut loose. I am so nervous to get on that scale.
Here in the states it is a long weekend for President's Day. It is also my daughter's birthday. We are going out to dinner twice for my daughter. I know its not suggested at all but can I switch dinner and lunch?? I am nervous about this weekend. Thoughts??
Again I feel like the lessons are reading my mind. I did get a compliment this weekend but I am not seeing the results on the scale. I feel like I am at a plateau and not moving. It is frustrating, especially now as my dinner is less the banana and I am so hungry. Trying not to become h-angry with my family. 😃
Wow did today's lesson come at a good time. I definitely slipped off the Kenzai diet wagon this weekend. It is so cold here in NY, that all I want to do is sit under my blanket and sip hot chocolate. We had a Saturday night party and Sunday was the superbowl. I will admit I weighed myself on Thursday and was really discouraged as I had not lost a pound. I know I feel better when I eat clean and I have been doing the workouts and I would like to see more of a result. Not giving up though!
