Chiseled?

Well, as planned, I didn't keep the diet super strict this round - probably 80%. And that explains why my weight is the same and so is my photo. But I substituted as necessary along the way on the workouts and came through uninjured. And when I was feeling a bit worse for wear, especially as the workouts got longer and harder, I missed some days because of dragonboat practices and races. So I'd call all of that a win!
I enjoyed the HIIT style workouts. Nice to have a change up. And I'll feel comfortable incorporating these into my maintenance routine. I've actually got 8 workouts left to do - so I won't be done until about the middle of next week. But that's just fine by me. Perfect timing before a last weekend of dragonboat racing (14/15/16) before heading off for summer holidays in the US on June 18.
Thanks for another great program Patrick! And to Scott for guiding us through! And to my Kenzai teammates and friends for the support along the way!
Stella is glad that the exercise mat has been making daily appearances. She runs away when the rope comes out, but as soon as it's gone, she heads right over and stakes her claim.

Well done on Chiseling mate! Best of luck for your upcoming races, I fully expect you to be holding up some silverware. Thanks also for your great advice to other Chizz team mates on substitutions and the like - helped out a lot! Nice dog - Stella - is it one of those Labradoodles? Congratulations - COMPLETE!

      A wise man once said "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth". You worked your modified diet and workout plans to a tee, would have been very easy to stray down that slippery slope, excellent work. And staying injury-free is a YOOJ win. Enjoy the last week!

        @Scott - Stella is a schnoodle - schnauzer poodle mix. Not so common but oh so cute!

          Elissa, I found your blogs very informative, I needed to make a few modifications and your suggestions gave me the confidence to explore and consider what worked best for me. Thank you. Have a great holiday (when it comes).

                Elissa, it was great to have you on the team and read up your blogs. It's cause of stalwarts like you that this Chisel was so motivating to finish.

                And thank you for the tips on the subs. Very useful.

                              Elissa, you are an amazing example of how to live a fit, healthy life, balancing when needed to avoid injury. Hope the final dragon races went well for you and the team. Have a great summer!
