Reboot Day 6 - almost a quarter through

So far so good. All six workouts done and diet completely on track since day 4. I was about 95% the first three days but did have some chips when I had to work late. I have continued to avoid the snacks in the pantry at work since Chisel, so that was not something I had to overcome.

I have been alternating skipping with some elliptical. So far 4 x skipping and 2 x elliptical. Last night I did 31 minutes and sweat a bucket, so I think it is equal to 15 minutes of jumping. Today I was happy to have the first 2 five-minute sets without a trip and the first trip came at 3:37 of the third set, so I guess I am back to skipping form.

As noted in the lesson, the exercises are easy, but I knew that going in. I have added a few reps but I am thankful the workouts are short. It definitely makes it easier getting going when one knows it will be well under an hour.

In honor of Fish’s plank challenge - which I won’t do - I kept the plank going through the 2 twenty second sets and the 20 second break for a 60 second plank. I don’t find 60 seconds hard but I know it gets tough around the 90-105 second mark.

The 20 second breaks between exercises is interesting. I find on K-Life the 10 seconds allowed for back and abs too short sometimes. But 20 seconds seems like an eternity, so I generally have been starting back in at the 15 second mark.

I am thankful to have the diet to follow and the exercises as my mother took a turn for the worse this week. I am pretty sure I would have been less careful with food had I not been just ramping with Reboot - I mean, who wants to slip up in Week 1?! Fortunately John is mending well, so that is a relief. I will be glad to get to Scottsdale on Wednesday.

My biggest failing this week was sleep training, especially towards the end of the week. I made up for it Friday night, and it was interesting to see my weight decline overnight. I am pretty sure it was water, but it continues to reinforce how important sleep is. Also, my ankle had bothered me yesterday as I stepped on my heel the wrong way going down stairs, which left me limping. Today it feels fine. So this coming week I need to focus on sleep training.

The photos are of my gym where I live in Tokyo...very boring but no way I am going to workout in the steambath aka Tokyo. The wood floor is forgiving on the knees and easy on the rope. Last night I didn’t get to the gym until after 11pm, so you can see the final as it approaches midnight. But the workout got done!

I will take some more interesting photos in Scottsdale, as the hotel I am staying at has some nice views.

Have a great weekend!

    Great going on avoiding the snack room at work! That takes real effort which will definitely pay off for you down the road. I know your trip Scottsdale will bring a whole bag of emotions but hopefully, you can take really good care of yourself while caring for your mother. Hugs!

              It is good that Reboot gives you structure and prevents diet failure amidst all that's going on. Wishing you lots of strength for your trip to Scottsdale!

                Your willpower, staring down those chocolates during Chisel, was superhuman. Hope the Scottsdale trip goes well.

                  Jennifer, great job committing to your workout up to the final minute of the day! I too find 20 second rests way too long and have been doing 15 as well. Have a great second week!
