Day 58 Kenzai on holiday

  • Sep 28th, 2013 at 4:13PM

Hey gang, I must admit being on holiday was not easy for my diet and exercise. I confess I did 2 indulgence days while in Napa. Wine tour was just impossible not to actually drink the wine and even if it was just a sip, I felt guilty actually throwing precious wine away and not to be able to enjoy the experience of this trip so I have decided (albeit with Kenzai guilt) to indulge on the wines and a dinner at a very good Napa resto called Bistro Jeanty (a must, if you can get the chance to visit Napa). In keeping up with Kenzai spirit, I requested for no added salt on my food. Still yum! Next day feeling guilty, I added 2 extra sets of 4min skips and added one extra set for each of the work out + 8 min ab man.

My friend's wedding was yesterday at an amazing venue called Calistoga Ranch. Half of a posh burger, truffle fries, a bit of Mac n cheese, a couple of glasses of vino and 2 tiny choco cupcakes were consumed with indulgence. I crashed to bed after an evening of dancing.

I woke up today puffy and with a tantrum. I realized the after wedding brunch this mornimg was at 10am and I woke up at 8:30am when I initially wanted to wake up at 7am. There came the dilemma - shall I go to gym and exercise and skip my friend's brunch or shall I just shower, pack, check out, brunch and skip working out today? I was so tempted to skip working out and so I threw a tantrum (to the shock of my girls staying with me - sorry girls for the morning drama) on why I need go work out on my holiday? Holiday for me means not having a schedule and not working out and totally just chilling out. Why do i have to work out again today? Then it hit me I just did two days of indulgence at the very crucial stage of my Kenzai training. Dragged myself out the door to the gym and decided to skip after wedding brunch. I feel bad not making it to brunch today but I am sure my gf will understand (Mrs. PCP, dont be mad at me) that there was just not enough time for me to finish an over an hour work out, shower and then join them for brunch. I wanted to be back on track with diet ASAP after these two days.

I am now back in San Fran and in much better control over work out and diet. I will fly back to Honkers tomorrow midnight. Looking forward to being back home. Not looking forward to jet lag though.

Will be packing apples and veggie sticks. Gluten free meal already ordered for the flight. Now off to grow the muscles.

Have a good weekend gang! Looks like you are all enjoying progress with your bodies. I wish I can say the same for me. Will try to catch up with y'all!

    That sounds like a tough decision you made there Rou, but that is pretty serious commitment. Safe trip back to Honkers.

      Nice job Rou! Did you stay at the NVL? I saw someone rocking the rope in the morning hours. I was torn between taking a good look and not wanting to seem like a total weirdo in case is wasn't Kenzai related! ;) Nice job staying strong and not letting moderation run the train off the tracks. Personally I think I might need a repeak after that week!

        Tough decision but all good. Tom, I didn't know you were in the same wedding until I bumped into Harold at the gym at NVL on Sunday. Yes, I was the girl who rocked the rope ;) I wished I managed to speak to you last week. Wine tour and wedding dinner was just amazing. I tried my very best to control the portions looking at I am now on my last month of PCP... i am a little stressed... i wonder if i can actually reach my peak after last week. Gotta get to that peak!

          The final month is the best part of this training! There's plenty of time to make major changes if you focus on it, but there's not so much time that it feels overwhelming. HIt day 90 at full speed and you'll love the results you see and how you feel!
