Just what I needed!

KB2 was exactly what I needed to get back in shape after about a year of injuries and gluttony. I loved the slow start and gradual ramp up. I kept the diet super strict and did not miss a single workout through Day 71 (when I broke my rib and had to stop). Even after this most recent injury I kept the diet about 90% and continued to see results.

Thanks to all the Kenzaites who keep encouraging me here and keep me involved and motivated!

Baked 100 big cookies yesterday! And did not eat a single bite until after dinner when we all shared (5 different kinds cut in 5ths so we could try each one...mmmm). It was more than enough cookie for me - they're super sugary and buttery. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't have been less strict if I wasn't in the habit of being mindful about what I'm eating!

Went to a friend's leaving party last night (80s theme - so fun!) and had a blast. But wow was that hangover rough this morning! My never-ending glass of white wine was definitely over the top! I think I'll keep those over-indulgences to a minimum!

And wow today's dim sum lunch celebration was perfect for fighting the hangover but has left me feeling pretty stuffed and thirsty and blah. I think I'll have salad for dinner!

Might have to wait a couple days for the final photo - to let the alcohol and sodium induced bloat settle down! Didn't plan ahead enough to take it yesterday!

        Awesome results Elissa! Apparently you also know how to sin as well! High quality in moderation. THATS why you can keep rocking the jeans!

          "Even after this most recent injury I kept the diet about 90% and continued to see results." This speaks to your incredible focus and resolve. We have a choice about how we handle sucky news. You stayed the course. And look at you. YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! Stay fierce, Elissa. Congrats on coming back and handle that unfinished business. Enjoy the silly season. It is fast approaching.

            Elissa, you did great despite the challenge of the broken rib. Enjoy the holidays. Your experience last night suggests moderation will be your preferred route! Looking great in those jeans!

                That 80's picture is one for the ages. And those cookies, damn you! I almost caved in and ordered one from Starbucks just now. Your week 12 photo is already pretty stellar, will be hard to beat. Enjoy the parties and yearend wind down. Was great to be on team with you this round.

                  resisting the making of 100 cookies without trying them is admirable! that speaks to the huge commitment. Although I guess you made up for it, party, cookies, dim sum.....heck why not! its been 90 days of disciplined choices so, glad you really enjoyed it! let the holiday break heal your rib and get you ready for another year full of Kenzai challenges :)

                    Bottomless wine glass hangover has got to be brutal...almost as bad as some 80's hair band love ballads.

                    Well done making use of KB2 to get yourself back on track to end the year where you wanted to be, even with the extra final injury hurdle of the year.

                      Very nice finish Wonder Twin - funny that we both got hurt (maybe we are twins)

                      You sound great great great - and A+ for playing a bad hand well.

                      Let heal and kick some tail!

                      Go TEAM go

                        Nice way to celebrate completing another program. It was so impressive you didn’t let the broken rib derail your dedication even though your approach had to change to give your body time to heal. You look fantastic and I know you’re continue to do amazing things!

                          Injury or no injury, you look fit and bring the heat like no one else as a trainee and trainer! And, you've got the best wedding advice I've ever heard!
                          Time for some healing, r&r over the holidays and then back at it!
