Reach Day 50 - Gone Rogue!

I picked a difficult time period to try to navigate a Kenzai program. I'm actually surprised that Ward hasn't kicked me out of the program yet! Wow.

Brief update. I am about 40% on program. After the last update, I traveled to Uganda to co-facilitate a couple of workshops. The picture is where I was staying last week. My diet became extra relaxed but not terrible. I did morning stretches nearly every day. The evening stretches are still my arch-nemesis. I don't remember the last time I did them. I even stopped doing the yoga work as prescribed by Kenzai. I did yoga but I did it my own way. I stopped jump-roping because I was fed up with peeing myself and started doing alternative cardio that is more mom-friendly. I was doing the plank challenge and 8MA challenge but decided to stop it and replace it with a daily diastasis recti friendly core routine. I felt that my separation was getting worse instead of better so thought to dial-back the core work and spend some time reconnecting to my deep core and pelvic floor.

So, basically, I've gone rogue, but not in a bad way. I regret not being more social on the blogs, but my internet in Uganda was spotty. I spent the time I was online connecting with my family instead of with Kenzai. Priorities. The good news is that I didn't just give up on my fitness. The bad news is that I haven't connected well with this program.

Oh yeah, and I won't be able to update my picture today. My phone disappeared in the Addis Ababa airport while I was taking a nap. I am still working on getting a replacement phone up and running. But, for the nutrition team, I'm about the same as I was at the end of week three. Perhaps I gained a 1/2 kg while eating a bit loosely, in Kampala, but I'm sure the diet at this moment is still relevant.

Well look at the bright side, at least you weren't peeing on other people...like Ren on his recent flight back to Tokyo...

    Sounds like you're listening to your body and doing what needs to be done. Those evening stretches are hard to incorporate. I find myself having to hop out of bed every now and then to do them...because I simply forgot all about them them.

      Hey, buddy. When you have 8 Kenzai badges, a couple kiddos, live in Malawai, and are among the hardest working people in this here community....you get a bit of elbow room. Mostly I'm just glad to know you are safe and well. We'll see you at the finish, Jenny!

        It sounds like you have a whole toolkit of fitness routines, exercises, and knowledge and you are using it well.

          "the good news is that I didn't just give up on my fitness" that's what I'm taking away from this. Thanks for an inspirational post Jenny! You have a busy (and so interesting!) life and you're keeping true as best you can and showing us how to integrate (to pick up on theme of week) amid life circumstances.

            What a lovely setting. Sounds like you are juggling a lot at the moment. And if you are at 40% that's better than not showing up at all! We all have these programs :-)
