Day 28: End of Program GRADUATION POST
I have to say that I really enjoyed the reboot program. It was short and sweet but so effective. I do believe I saw some improvement. I toned up a bit and got back on track with my diet.
Here is where I stand with the goals I set out to do at the beginning of the program:
1) I jumped 6 straight mins without tripping. I still need to work up to my 10 min goal.
2) I lost about 4 pounds.
3) I maintained a size small.
I hope everyone is happy with their results!
I must admit I almost cried tears of joy in the dressing room today. I am officially two sizes down. I haven't been a size small since college. Great motivation for the second half of the program.
We have made it to day 25 and I feel good.
The diet has been working for me. I am seeing changes in my body which is extremely rewarding. I have noticed that I am now hungry around snack time and meals. This is a huge change from when I thought there was too much food.
I have been paying close attention to my body since the intense headaches began a few days ago. Here is what I changed incase anyone else is having an issue with headaches when jumping rope:
1) Drink a big glass of water as soon as you wake up and after your workout.
2) Jump on a thick mat and not a hard surface.
3) Use timer during jump rope session instead of counting each jump.
I timed myself and realized it takes me about one minute to complete 100 jumps. Instead of counting out the jumps I now put on a timer. For example: 500 jumps is 5 mins +2 minutes for tripping and any rest. This has allowed me to concentrate on my breathing instead of the count.
I hear there is an indulgence to be had. My indulgence is TBD lol. More to come on that soon. :)
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the program.
Anyone else get a massive headache during jump rope sessions or right after? This just started happening to me every time I jump rope. It's really unpleasant. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Week 2...bring it on!!!!
I have enjoyed the increased workout routine. I must admit that my body has been sore a time or two....or three! Every time I move and it stings I know I am on the right track. 2017 seems to be shaping up nicely :)
I am sure anyone who has to watch me attempt a push up leaves feeling sad for me lol. No pain no gain! I will conquer the push up. I promised myself that once I can do a full 10 push ups I will celebrate by blasting the Rocky theme song while I run a victory lap around my living room.
I am surprised by how much food I get to eat. I have never been on a diet where I wasn't hungry. Week 2 Kenzai food plan is literally TOO much food for me. I have never eaten this much. I have never eaten these many vegetables.
I have a first hand account on how the Kenzai 90 day progam can become grueling if you don't change up your recipe repertoire. I believe my husband made the same sweet potato recipe day in and day out for 90 days when he did KB1. Pinterest to the rescue!
So far we have made:
Zoodles-Which is spiraled zucchini that looks like pasta noodles. You must trick thy mind folks! You can sauté them in a little vegetable or chicken stock. Add garlic, tomatoes, ginger, red pepper flakes, fresh herbs and you are good to go.
Egg/Vegetable Breakfast Wrap-Scramble your eggs and add to a spinach wrap. Top with sautéed veggies. You can add literally any type of herb/seasoning to this and it would taste amazing.
Hope everyone is feeling good and getting stronger!
I am a new mom with a 4 month old baby girl. I am really excited to start the 90 day program. My husband did the 90 day program late last year and he had amazing results. He is so supportive! He woke me up at 6AM after doing his workout at 5AM with a cup of coffee in hand. He is a keeper :) I just completed the day 1 workout. Dang!!!! The ab and push up section was a challenge for me. I look forward to building strength in these areas.
Bonus: Baby stayed asleep throughout mommy and daddy's workout.
