Decent week

  • Nov 9th, 2019 at 10:11PM

Had a pretty good week although crazy, busy at work. Had my team in Toronto for 3 days of meetings and workshops, but managed to get in all my workouts with diet at about 90%. Sleep was the most challenging---a couple nights of 4 hours only.

As mentioned previously, I will be stepping away from Kenzai for the next five days. Off to Mexico with my husband to celebrate 25 wonderful years of marriage! The workouts won't be a problem, as the resort has a great gym, and long walks on the beach will provide extra cardio. That said, I won't even pretend to stay on diet. I will gravitate to fresh fruit and veggies. However, there will be dessert at dinner and probably a glass of wine and a cocktail here and there. I knew this trip was coming when I signed up for KB2.....but for me it's almost impossible to get a totally, obstacle-free 90 days.

I think that regardless of this trip, I was going to take a couple days off the diet anyway. I'm heading into my 6th week of egg whites for dinner. Every Saturday morning I eagerly check out my diet and for the past 6 weeks the there they are (albeit with AMAYW veggies for the past two weeks)

For the last couple of weeks, those Saturday mornings have been disappointing and somewhat demoralizing. I'm finding it difficult to drum up the energy and enthusiasm when the message I'm hearing (and I'm not saying it's the one I'm being given) is that there is still much work to be done.

So I will be stepping away for the next 5 days and I'm sure that when I return I will be ready and refreshed to finish the program strong. Maybe I won't have the results I could have had, but I'm ok with that.

You are a pro at this, Gisele. You always give it your all and you know what you need to do to have a successful program. If that means taking a small break, then so be it. Your time away in Mexico will be a great way to get away from it all. Have an amazing time! I’m sure it will reset all the buttons and you’ll come back to finish strong. Have a Happy Anniversary!
Oh, and let me know if you want me to check in on the house when you’re away😉

      Sounds like a great week! Balancing quite the full life! Although of course you can't live on that little sleep for long. Perfect timing for a vacation!
      Enjoy your little wander off the path. I too opt for that kind of attitude when traveling while on program. Make mindful choices but also enjoy yourself. And as you say, come back refreshed and ready to rock the last few weeks!
