One Week Abs
- Jul 17th, 2017 at 8:32AM
So, I managed 5-days of the 8-minute ab work out this week and will continue to do it. I add the abs workout after the Kenzai stretches and then have another little stretch after doing the ab workout. I don't really see this as trying to be an over achiever, but my abs / gut is the area of my body that needs shaping up the most so the extra ab work out makes sense for me. Plus it's kinda fun hanging with the gang once a day, and the rapid progress and improvement in form is quite motivating. It's much easier to notice the gain through the ab workout than from other elements of the Kenzai workout program. Give it a try.
Everything else is fine, I've been staying on course with the diet, give or take a few missed snack meals. I, like many people on our program, have abstained from several social events, dinners and lunches. The workout routine has been a bit hit and miss since the weather has been rainy and I don't want to jump rope in the rain unless I really have to. So, sometimes it's morning and other times it's evening. But I haven't missed one yet. Although I did replace rest day skips with a boxing class... I figured that's on plan!
This week comes the true test. 10-days of travel. UK, home of the fry up. Switzerland, home of the fondue. Thailand, for a wedding and pad Thais. I'm not concerned about the workouts, but it's gonna take a load of planning and resolve to make sure I don't fall into the great big pie hole. It's reassuring to see that I'm not alone in these fears and that many others in our program have overcome and conquered in similar situations, which gives me confidence that I can too. I just need to plan ahead and make sure I pack a food bag, each day, for all the daytime snacks and meals. It's like being back at school. Perhaps I'll buy a snoopy lunch box and superman backpack, and do it like I did back in the good old days.
I'm looking forward to passing the half way point this week and am beginning to see the signs of a healthier me, so bring it on!
