Beach Blast!

  • Jun 21st, 2019 at 6:42PM

I'm so happy to be Beach Blasting this round and am really ready for some results after a very frustrating few months on the training front.
Due to a shoulder injury and various other things going on I've really fallen behind with fitness. Some celebrations a couple of weeks ago, along with some horrendous weather, also sent me into a bit of a tailspin diet-wise so I came to this programme on Monday feeling pretty low about myself...perhaps that's why it's taken me all week to blog!

I'm happy to say that some hard work this week has pulled me up out of my funk and I'm feeling 100% better today! I was so relieved to read todays lesson about the two free passes for missed workouts as I've actually already used them both! Monday I had to rest after a physio appointment on my shoulder and Wednesday was a super long day, travelling to London for work and also seeing old friends. It does mean that I don't get anymore days off this round so...here goes!

Diet wise, this is tough! I've not been on programme for a while and, as promised, this diet is a CUT. Honestly, it's about cut in half what I've been eating recently, calorie wise so it's going to take some serious discipline moving forward. I'm also doing another challenge with the Kenzai staff at the moment which involves going either vegetarian or vegan. I've decided to go veggie and cut out dairy but am still having eggs- this adds another layer to the challenge although I'm really enjoying it so far.

I'm at a wedding this weekend so will do my best on the diet front. Wish me luck!

You can keep the two passes for future use if you get through the wedding weekend clean eating, dry of alcohol, and doing the workouts! you can do it!

    Good luck at the wedding! Why the focus on going vegan or vegetarian among the trainers? Health reasons? Environmental? It will be interesting to see how it impacts your mood and energy levels.

      Nice, Jess! Sounds like a tough few months but that it’s also given you motivation to stick to the plan for the next few weeks. Today’s lesson on the diet and cardio levers comes at a good time!
