Krysia A.'s Kenzai Body program, Heliodor, starts in 25 days.
I found that by not skipping the morning yogurt (I was using it as milk for my coffee, and yes I was drinking a LOT of coffee), I can really fill up. I also don't mind one bit having yogurt and apples for dinner with a side of egg. It's filling, easy, and I've finally managed 3 days without cheating!
Hiya, I went back to the jump rope too soon, and this time I heard a pop on jump 18. A day later it actually doesn't hurt that much, although i can't walk properly. I'm just going to have to cool it. Guess what? I'm not heart broken! Last week I swam every day and did yoga on Saturday and it was all too much! I was a zombie yesterday and craving sugar again.
This morning I slept in, did my kenzai exercises and I haven't had evil thoughts of sugar. I've got to nail this diet thing for the last 6 weeks. I can do it if I don't jump rope.
Oh, and my friend whom I haven't seen in ages said I looked like I tightened up a lot. And yes, I can see the difference on my time in past week pics (not this week though--er?)
I finally got rid of the (Halloween candy) cravings and the severe tiredness I was feeling for so long, and although I could have tried harder (?), I still felt disheartened for not having lost any weight-- but then those series of Lectures about fat came up and I feel better. What motivates me? I want to lose my belly fat! And it's not happening in an obvious way--my clothes aren't even fitting differently BUT I can see in the photo some improvement in the belly. Having said that, I really have to give credit to other triumphs. My legs, arms and bust look better and I'm stronger all over. EVEN MORE than that, I quit smoking on Kenzai Day 1 which is MASSIVE, and the fact that I'm not boozing is EVEN MORE MASSIVE. So, I'm doing all right I would say and I forgive myself for not loosing weight. There is still time.
Hi, has it been a week already? I found that I was tired all last week, despite my 8 to 11 hours of sleep a night! I've considered all kinds of excuses like a) is it my new super cushy bed? 2) is it the changing of the seasons? 3) am I getting a cold? but after reading your blogs it doesn't seem like I'm that unusual and maybe all this swimming and Kenzai that I'm doing is wearing me out! The tiredness is also causing sugar cravings and I find myself pecking at the unwrapped Halloween candy. I finally moved it out my path, but I still know where to find it!
But I talked with my dragon boat captain, also a Kenzai instructor, and she reminded me it's better to cheat with frozen grapes, or veg, or even veg cubes. I've been drinking loads of tea and coffee to get over the cravings. But also find I'm not taking my morning or evening fruit much of the time.
Once again sorry, can't find how to PM you. I have a 25 hour religious fast coming up on Friday and I'm not sure what to do. Not onlyno food, but no water! Starts Friday night after dinner and ends Sat night at dinner time, so effectively it's 2 missed meals but it feels like more haha! I don't want to get sick because of this, and yet it means a lot to me
To participate. Please advise.
Last night after dinner I fell asleep in my clothes and didn't even get to my kenzai workout. I would have done a double dose today but my swim
Work outs yesterday and today were all out and I'm feeling pretty spent. One top of that, Sat yoga was rescheduled to today--I feel like I can't quite catch my breath! It's been one thing after another, with my house move and then taking daughter to college. Now I've got the Jewish holidays to throw me off yet more. Argh!😩
So sore from yesterday's lunges and the push-ups the other day. BTW my hip flexors are really tight and I don't like doing things like otter. Can I do a different abs workout that isn't so hard on the hips? Maybe Russian twists?
