Its been 10 days since I am back home, after my travels. Being back home, I am able to exercise regularly and follow the diet and I am beginning to feel much better. My body pain has reduced to a large extent and I have lost 2kgs. All in all, I feel good. Though I must admit that the program is getting tougher yet, I am confident that I will be able to keep to it and follow it.
i have been exercising regularly but It is impossible for me to do 1200 jump ropes in one go – I am able to complete max 200 jump rope as one set, after which I need to take some rest, including doing some stretching exercise. Also, since I have never exercised to this extent before, I often feel fatigued in the morning. I have also not lost any weight and this is becoming a big concern to me. Sometimes I feel that maybe I am not following the instructions for exercises correctly and perhaps that may be the reason why I am not losing weight. I often host people for lunches or dinners, because of which I am not able to strictly follow the diet. I was reading lessons and it did suggest that if you are not losing weight maybe the fat is getting converted into muscle. I hope this is true in my case.
I have been traveling extensively, since the last 2 weeks and have been experiencing a lot of pain in my calf muscles. Also, I have not lost any weight. Unfortunately, because of my extensive traveling, I have not been able to stick to my diet and have, on occasions, had a glass of wine, however, I have been exercising regularly.
Growing up, I had never been a ‘sporty’ or physically active person. However 5 years back I decided to participate in the Kenzia programe. Kenzai did not help me to lose weight, but I started looking slimmer, I became active, felt energized and good about myself. The Kezai programe stayed as a good memory, tough but good.
For the last one year, I have been trying to lose weight, but to no avail. I have undergone many diet programs but those have not helped me. Initially, I felt that I would not be able to do Kenzia, due to the skipping routine as it aggravates my back pain. Fortunately, I joined Kenzai a month back and could not continue but used that one month to prepare myself.
Its now been 13 days and I have not had a back pain since, rather I am doing more skipping than what Kenzia is asking me to do. I am feeling better, and mentally very determined to continue these 90 days, thus making it my lifestyle.
Day 87 GRADUATION POST
I still remember I had gone visiting a friend and was complaining of leg aches. He recommended that I do the PCP. While I signed up for the PCP and even convinced my wife to do so but I was unsure if I really needed something like the PCP to get me going and whether it would really be that effective. Life is all about choices and this is a choice I am glad I made. I have not exercised till date but I believe I have come to that point where I will not like to give it up. This transformation in me is a testament to PCP.
When I finish the program I am going to continue to exercise and keep my promise made to myself. I am also going to party hard.
With my travel and business socialising both diet and exercises have been tough to follow. Apart from cheating a few times I have done okay. Though I crib about exercising but I feel happier after doing my exercises. Easiest have been various exercises using the Band.
I have to admit that the most significant lifestyle change I have made is introduced exercises in my daily routine. From a lazy morning to a morning which oscillates between being tired and energetic is a journey which was difficult to embark on initially and then sustain but having been there and done that probably difficult to abandon.
I keep very long working hours and do travel extensively. That has not changed. Despite that, I managing to find time to exercise is new. Its now almost 2 months and i start my day with my exercises and pretty much accomplish what I set out for myself. There is time for everything and it's not a race anymore.
I wish I could pin point a day. To be honest each day is tough. And to be regimented about food and exercise makes it tougher.
I have been fairly disciplined in terms of my diet but this is the first time that I have lead a regulated 40 days in terms of exercises. Barring 3 days I have not missed a single day. I am feeling much better though exhausted. Not only do I want to see myself complete the other half I definitely want this to become a lifestyle issue.
I generally enjoy my workout regime. However there are days when the exercises leave me completely exhausted and tired with a busy schedule to follow. Those are the only days I really get fed up as I get no time to relax during the course of the day.
I am in the US for the past few days. Had never imagined that I would be working out so diligently in my hotel room. Morning work out is a priority. My social life has undergone a change to the extent that late nights have become fewer and there are no excuses for waking up early to follow the exercise regime.
I generally feel much calmer, happier and fresher throughout the day. Though exercises does leave me exhausted and tired for sometime however I feel more charged throughout the day. I have an old history of body ache and cramps, but now gradually I feel my pain too is less.
