Kenzai Body
Day 45
 
Program progress:
Keep going

I´m still struggling every day with the exercises. Was getting the hang of the jump robe, but the change today with minutes instead of numbers, gave me the feeling of a major setback as I (again) isn´t able to do more than 50 seconds at the time.
I do though feel more healthy and even if it doesn´t show in the pictures - I feel it in my clothes.
I tried to boil eggs as mentioned in a todays lesson. That didn´t turn out well and had to throw them all out.
I do like eggs, but the so called diner-menu is really boring and I´m fed up with it - seeing another week with this - made me briefly think of quitting - but no, I really want to do this in spite of the dull diners, still not being able to do the plank to the full and the setback with the jump robe.


War of workout

Every day I struggle with the workout, I find it very hard to do most of the exercises to the full. By that I mean: have to have small breaks every 100 jump rope, I can only do the minimal number of the exercises and the doing the abs is a disaster. I'm not able to do more than 15 seconds at the time fx. plank or otter kicks.
Some of the stretchs are impossible for me to make as I'm simply not flexible enough.
I do the best I can and I sweat so much, that I have to have a towel on the mat. I do remember to breath and push myself till I'm nauseous. I don't mind sore muscles at all - no pain no gain.
Those who say age is just a number, I'm sure hasn't turned 50 😉

Am I really the only one feeling this way ?


End of week 4

Sometimes feel that is 80% workout and 20% diet as I find the exercises hard and still struggling with cramps under my feet during all that jumping robes, but I can though slowing feel that I´m not out of breath as in the beginning. Yes !

I found it difficult to treat myself this weekend as it almost seemed like cheating, but I did have one cookie, a diet coke and some cashewnuts.

I still find it hard to eat so much at lunch and don´t succeed every day.
Haven´t got a clue what to do about next weeks dinner - 2 eggwhites, fruit and milk/yougurt.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Great week to you all !


End of week 3

Just did my 800 jump ropes and is exhausted. I did have some backproblems while jumping, but they are slowly disappearing (YES) - but still hurts under my feet - like a cramp.

Doesn´t feel or see any positive change - guess I´m impatient.

Had my first night out yesterday - a barbeque - at some friends. Thought it would be fine not bringing my own food, but unfortunately there wasn´t enough vegetables - the one salat that was there - was literally swimming in dressing, so I chose not to take so much. I actually went hungry to bed, but I didn´t have any alcohol, feeling rather boring.

I don´t enjoy cooking and therefore eating pretty such the same the day in and day out -hope it doesn´t affect the result.

I´m hanging it there.


End of week 2

This week question : what was harder/easier than expected ?

It has been easier is doing without sugar than expected 👍(so far)

The hard part is eating so much and must admit that I didn't quite make it every day.
The jump robe is still a challenge and working on not having pain in my back and under my feet.
I did my 600 jump rope today but not without small breaks. I've already seen that we are doing 600 again tomorrow and thinking - are you out of your mind ? 😉
My latest uploaded photo doesn't show any change and I know we aren't suppose to step up on the scale, but I did it anyway. Lost 2,8 kg so I'm more than pleased.


I am here too

Very inspiring to read your blogs 👍

I am from Denmark and lived here all my life. My 2 children have left home years ago and I am also a grandmother. Guess I'm the senior on this team.
I'm living with my 2nd husband and our little dog (lots of walks ❤🐕)

I've been working as a caseworker most of my life - both in the private and the public sector, but have been out of work the past year because of disease, but finally in a place where I feel ready for this challenge and hopefully loose some ( read: a lot) of weight , get in shape, live more healthy (get out of my sugar-addiction) and as a bonus get more balance in both body and soul.

My brother (currently living in Laos) has recommended Kensai, as it has been life-changing experience for him.
