Easiest and hardest parts of the program so far?
Easiest aspect has been doing it alongside the wife. Misery loves company so it has been a lot easier passing on any salty or sweet snacks not having someone eating a bowl of ice cream in front of you.
Hardest: No Beer! (no explanation needed)
Doing a little weekend grilling (without the beer). 4lbs. of chicken and 2 lbs. of salmon. Question is, how many days into the week will this last me? Been interesting to see how much more meat I've eaten this week versus normal. Grocery bill is getting a workout too.
Yogurt and fruit for game time...OH YEA!!!..a sorry sight indeed!
On track with food, but adjusting to timing the morning and afternoon snacks as I'm not used to always including those in a day.
Well that was a good wake up workout. Definitely a step up in total time and effort needed.
Food ok so far, but carbs for breakfast and lunch will need some creativity. I ate more bread in those two meals than I normally eat in almost a week.
Enjoyed a little comfort food and a few last beers as the end of week 1 is nearing. Liked seeing the week 2 diet a couple days early to get the mind, and fridge, prepped.
Still fine with the workouts and was able to get a good run in as cardio on another beautiful weekend day.
Substituted my usual weekend cycling for today's cardio. Great weather today so I wanted to make use of it before the cold part of autumn comes around. Did strength portion after the ride. Crunches I have never liked and suspect I won't these 3 months either, but got them in.
Liked reading today's lesson of "slow and steady" before this morning's workout. Reminding myself that this 90 day program is not a sprint, and to not get ahead of myself.
Nothing new to report as first 3 days have been similar and smooth. But I want to make sure I stay on the daily blogging schedule as much as I can to make it a habit since I think it will be helpful in the harder weeks to come. I've liked reading everyone's first few days of posts and am very impressed by the large percentage of people being very upfront and honest (sometimes blunt) with themselves about their fitness, nutrition, habits, strengths, weaknesses, goals, fears, early successes, etc. Very encouraging to see!
Continued good week 1 start to all!
Exercises feeling good and I like having the targeted stretches right on the workout page so that aspect is not forgotten/ignored, which I can tend to do when I feel like "I don't have enough time left".
Got Day 1 off to a good start with the workout completed this morning, along side my wife, whose is a Kenzai alumni, with her beginning level 2 this time around. From watching her do it last time, the support/social aspect is very key to success, so having her as well as 5 other family members doing level 1 or 2 this session, provides confidence to make the most out of this program. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can get my mind to make my body do in the areas of fitness and nutrition that I've been neglecting.
Good luck to all in week 1!
