As we finish Kenzai, the most important thing I have taken away is to keep getting back on the horse. I have a (bad) habit of putting my kids/work/etc ahead of my own health. When time gets tight, the first thing to go out the window is my workout. I used to go weeks or months between my stints in the gym.
There have been many days in the past couple of weeks when I did a long hike, DB practice, etc but did not do or did not completely finish the Kenzai workout. There were other days that I did not do any sort of exercise. Those days left me feeling sluggish and tired...and more likely to eat more.
I don’t have the body I was planning on having at the end of Kenzai. But I do have a crystal clear understanding of my pitfalls and weaknesses. I need to prioritize adequate rest and avoid over scheduling (Not my forte.) But when I do, the motivation to eat clean and workout is easy.
I am super excited and happy for several of my teammates who have really put in 100% and gotten amazing results. No doubt this program works. I’m going to keep plugging away.
On a tangential note....I am writing this afternoon from Mumbai (here as a chaperone for a school trip.) I am so deeply grateful for my life and my health. Living in the US and HK, we are quite sheltered from the deep poverty that so many people around the world live in. Really eye opening...
As the lovely locals say - Namaste!!
Ps. I am on my way to the gym to get in a workout before dinner. Trying to finish on a high note. Or at least work off the naan before I eat it!! 😬
