This has been a good program for me as it came at a time when I needed to get back on track. I was able to stay on the diet and exercise for the majority of the time as I had to travel and stay at my sons house for a few days. He put me to work helping him landscaping for several days. Thanks to Kenzai I was able to keep up with him moving dirt and building walls. This is one of the reasons I started with Kenzai in the first place. The Kenzai programs have been helping me to continue to stay in shape, allow me to roll around on the floor with my grandchildren and continue my favorite sport skiing. I'm looking forward to the ski program and the start of the skiing season.
Can't believe we have finished our third week. This week has been a difficult as I have been traveling. My diet has suffered a little as yesterday I went to an Octoberfest/Retirement party and at my sons house and went off my diet and had a few adult beverages. I have been keeping up with my exercises and feel great. I will be heading home tomorrow and looking forward to getting back on track and finishing the program.
This week has been very busy but I have done all my daily exercises and kept up with my diet. I want out to lunch yesterday and had a very nice salmon meal. The food was good and very filling. I'm going to be traveling this week so the diet will get a little harder to maintain.
My wife and I have a cottage in Northeast PA that sits on a lake and next to the rail trail. We live there from May to November and as I have had problems skipping rope I use walking as my alternative cardio. The picture is on the rail trail that is part of my daily walks. I have been enjoying the first week getting back into the grove. It feels good eating and exercising properly again and looking forward to next week.

This was a tough program that I really enjoyed. I worked hard on the exercises and had to use several alternative ones. The diet was not the best but I did tried to stay as close as I could. I feel great, ready for the beach and ready to move on to the next program. Good luck to all.
I have been traveling this week so it has been another challenge. I have been able to keep up with all the exercises and good with my diet. This has been the most challenging program I have taken with Kenzai. I feel great and look forward to the rest of the summer.
Last week went well except for Saturday. I had to take Saturday off as I called it my family and friends day. I was able to complete my cardio but didn't have time for my exercises till about 10pm. I couldn't get myself motivated so put it off till Sunday. Been doing great this week but still struggling with my diet. Getting up early tomorrow so I can get everything done before marching in a parade.
Sorry I have been a little slow on my blog. This has been the toughest program I have taken with Kenzai to date. I am sore and tired after my workouts but feel good. I am past my prime for a fantastic beach body so my motivation is for the long run. To tighten up the muscles, shed some fat and weight. The muscles are a little sore but tightening up. Thank you for the alternate full body exercises as I have had to use many of them. My diet hasn't been perfect but I keep working on it. I'm looking forward to the rest of the program.
I've taken off a few months and it was starting to show up as eating and exercise had suffered. I started this program looking for a challenge and after two days its definitely a challenge. The workouts have been hard but satisfying. Looking forward to the rest of the program.

Can't believe we are done already. I'm was a disappointed that I had to modify my final week as we were visiting my son in Colorado. I did accomplish my main goal of getting back on track and staying strong as I finish the ski season. Rolling around on the floor and chasing my grandchildren was the frosting on the cake. I'm looking forward to my next program.
Last Wednesday we flew to Denver for four days to assist our son and his wife with babysitting their 1 and 3 year olds. They travel a lot and had an overlap problem. This looked to be an easy issue to work around until we were asked to stay an additional week. My diet has taken the biggest hit as I have no control over the food coming into the house so I have been using my Kenzai lessons to make the best decision for meals. My workouts have been mixed in with chasing my grandchildren around. I had thought about quitting but want to complete the program. In hind site this was not the best time to re-boot however I have fulfilled the majority of my goals for this program. Looking forward to get through the final days. Sorry for the delay in blogging.
Went out for a nice dinner last night. Salomon with a little cinnamon on the side for the sweet potato. It was an excellent meal and I was full when I left..
The Tuesday full body exercise lesson came at the right time. After completing my exercises I then had to go out and shovel heavy wet snow for two hours. My second full body exercise of the day. The reboot program has helped me get back in shape for the heavy lifting. I'm on track with my diet, exercise and feeling good.
It's nice being back in a program. My last program was Ski and it ended in late December. The Kenzai program got me into great shape for skiing, thank you Ward, but traveling and the holidays got me off track. I have been doing a lot of skiing and on Tuesday I did my exercises at Mt Sunapee in New Hampshire. It was 40 degrees and snow conditions were great. There is nothing like spring skiing in February. The picture is from the top of the mountain looking down at Lake Sunapee. Im looking forward to getting back on track and working with everyone.
The end GRADUATION POST
This has been the most challenging program for me. Moving from one state to another, and traveling several times between states helped me learn how to work my exercises into my daily routine. Diet was harder but I was able to make it work.I want to wish everyone a great safe year skiing along with a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
