The hardest thing for me is 7 days

Love Kenzai, love the results and believe the teachings. However, every program I have done on Kenzai I truly struggle with 7 days a week workouts for long periods. It can kill my motivation. This Reboot is no different. Each night after I work for 12 hours and get home around 8:00 knowing i have to change and go out in the 35 degree garage and skip and push myself on the daily workout it is the hardest mental thing to walk past the kitchen, the warm fireplace, and the TV on and family hanging out, to just change clothes and dedicate another 40 minutes away from them pushing oneself, then knowing I have to prep dinner and the next days food.....it’s an incredibly hard mental challenge. I’m hittting this week 100%, but someday I hope Kenzai has a great program that gives folks a flex day off each week when you really need it.

A few days left team,....let’s all push past the negative thoughts if you have them like me.

Picture is my favorite spot in South Carolina.

I believe we all have negative thoughts to some degree. Great of you for sharing them and "hitting this week 100%" anyhow. Beautiful picture - looks very warm which it has not been around here this week.

    I get where you’re coming from which is why I can manage a short , sharp reboot over a full 90 day-er.

    It is tough. It does require a lot of self discipline and a lot of hardship at times when you just don’t feel like it.

    That said, we have all decided to take our health back into our control. Let’s suspend our belief for a few more days and then post day 28 we can allow ourselves s little slack.

    I’m hoping that I’ve managed to redefine my normal back to where I’d like it to be. I’ll be working out but not 7/7. I’ll be eating well and conscientiously but not weighing my grams.

    Reboot is all part of the process.

    Sounds daft but when I’m feeling like I’m missing out I bring my workout into the living room. It’s incredible how much interest some rocking planks and side crunches can muster & how we all join in with varying degrees of success

    Good luck in the final few days. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment come Sunday & I know that I’m in a better place for persevering.

    On the food prep - I chop enough for several days & sometimes even part- cook up extra so all I have to do is reheat or serve my plate some days. It does mean 10 minutes more now & again but then I do feel like I get an away day from prep.

    The cold weather in your area can’t help as I realised whilst visiting g Europe last weekend. I think I’d rely on some veggie soups with protein on the side a lot.
