I am on an official do-over! Was not prepared to tackle the meal/food planning on business travel in January, and wheels fell off this wagon very early into my first Kenzai Body program. Now I know what I need to do to make this change - several years post-back surgery and have lost rhythm and routine to chaos and cookies. I would love to lose about 15-20 pounds over time, lose some “softness” and most of all, regain control over my daily routine for myself. :)
Well, started week 2 with a 4 day conference, so to be honest it all fell apart. I attempted to do some workouts in the hotel, ate relatively on plan during the day, but evenings were a mess of dinners out and drinks. That said, I’m not expecting any travel again before the program ends, so I am renewing my efforts going forward. Feeling pretty bummed out!
Hi all, I’m Evelyn, 47 years old, not new to this kind of program but new to Kenzai and so far very happy with the slow transition into a new way of eating/approaching exercise. I live in the Boston area and am an attorney in the insurance industry on the underwriting side - I have two children, one in college and one in high school - and my best quality is my humor. I don’t have a great track record with food choices PLUS I love to bake, which is why I’m about 25 lbs heavier than I’d like to be. I learned about Kenzai from two co-workers who have incorporated it into their lives (more or less) and seem like ordinary, successful but not over-the-top people who care about their health.
Thoughts re: week 1 - my version of the “leave 1/4 on the plate” has been a rollercoaster. I did great for 3 days, then went through a bag of peanut M&Ms (although I did omit all blue ones, which may actually have been about 1/4 of the bag...). I also missed one workout already for a bunch of scheduling reasons I’ll just have to account for in the future - but went out of my way to make up the missed workout the next day in addition to the regular workout and also made a point to walk the 2.5 miles to work yesterday. SO I’m feeling generally optimistic that I am finding ways to be accountable for my health even if not 100% program diligent.
