KB2 - Day 50 - Crossing the LINE

I feel like in every program, there comes this point where if you haven’t been semi-locked in (diet, blogs and exercise) there’s no way to continue. Physically and mentally the habits haven’t been formed, the body is not ready for the exercises...

So far, aside from skipping, the rest of the workouts have been manageable. Today, the exercises were insane. Five sets are starting, more exercises. By the end I was like - ok, we have crossed THAT LINE.

And I’m still here. It’s been awhile since I’ve been somewhat committed to a program. And now I’m quite sure I will finish (my completion rate so far in 2 plus years is 50%).

A and I were discussing what’s different about this program. I think we know we can do better if life permits but if life does not permit, we take the small wins and we live with knowing we’ve done our best. It helps that we can see and feel the differences. Sure, maybe we could do even better but at what cost to our sanity?

In other news, we’ve decided to do our program mainly in the gym when in Shanghai. We love how you can Kenzai anywhere but we both felt like we needed another space where we can focus on our workouts and not worry about tripping over the puppies etc. So a pic of our new exercise place. It’s swanky but so so so nice. A much needed change of mental and physical space.

Let’s lock in and do this team!

I absolutely agree with everything you have said. We (my fiance Mary-Jo is also doing KB2) are doing our best. Sometimes travel or injury (my back is playing up) can slow you down, but you have 90 days and we can notice the difference in how we look and feel and the right habits have been set

    I love this. You're not letting perfection be the enemy of the good. Rolling on along, putting misses behind you and celebrating successes!

      @ John sorry to hear about your back. Take care of it!
      @ Elissa thanks. It took about two years to get to this mindset!! There was a time when I thought that I could never do a 90 day program again... but now I think it’s possible.

        I love the super swanky gym and can see how it will really help to focus your workout sessions. You are looking fantastic in week 7 and ready to tackle the more difficult workouts coming your way.

          Its seems like your mind is helping you to win over the obstacles we all face.

            That is a sweeeeeeeeet rack of Bellz! I agree, although you don’t need the gym it definitely puts me in the right frame of mind with fewer distractions and excuses.

              @ Jenny - Thanks! Workouts only getting harder... but in a good way!
              @ Joe - glad my mind is on my side this time!
              @ Fish - I know right! Every time I look at them now I think, maybe I’m ready to do Bellz...

                So true! Progress over perfection! Making the best choices we can! No excuses and keeping committed regardless of what life throws at us! Let’s do this!
