well, that was hard

Hello all,

I finally returned from vacation/biz trip and am back online. I did so well in the Uk and Geneva, stayed absolutely on track, but the final leg to Bangkok and whilst in Bangkok, there were hiccups.

I definitely recommend that if you are planning a long haul, squeeze the work out in before and pack food. I wasn't able to do this between Geneva and Bangkok (via Dubai) so both the meals and exercise went out of whack for a day. Missed a day, dammit.

I then missed another workout on my friends wedding day - really as a result of wishful thinking and poor planning. I'd bagged an indulgence so cut myself some slack and had a few drinks that night, which felt great!

Anyhow, as a result of the hiccups, I was kicking myself for a few days but have got back on track upon returning to Hk this week, despite the nasty weather that continues to hinder all of us HK Kenzai people. Could it get any worse?

The carbs disappearing (almost) entirely from the diet is brutal. But, I'm not gonna moan about it and will just suck it up. Next week I leave for LA for three weeks. That's gonna test my metal to the max. But, I've come this far and am gonna do my best to stick it to the end. I could use another indulgence day though, come on Kenzai....

Mental note for future, don't sign up for Kenzai when you have a bunch of summer holiday plans. Schoolboy error.

I hope you guys are all doing great and will be checking out your blogs over the weekend.

Happy Fri-yay.

Scott

Welcome back Scott! Sounds like a great trip, and perfect indulgence at wedding.
Just keep at the workout and diet whilst you are in town, and do your best in keeping at it whilst in LA (not easy with any travelling, least of all the land of burgers, tacos and yummy fats...); we have one more month to rock this!!

    Welcome back Scott. Travelling can throw the best laid out plan out of gear. Try to follow your diet as best as you can. There's barely a month left, so give it your best shot.

      I couldn't agree more - kenzai on holiday is brutal and invariably involves going off piste at times. In LA they're nuts about health, so you should be ok! Pack your food for the plane and you're good to go

        So true Scott! Kenzai on the road does require an additional measure of willpower.. you've done so well being on the road so long! On the flip side, think of it as Kenzai saving you from totally going off the cliff with indulgences and booze galore - think about the damage if you hadn't been mindful? :) safe travels to LA! Not long now - you can do this!

          Summer is a tough season dude! In fact, it can be the most trying time (besides the holidays) for trainees. But you did a great job minimizing any major missteps, and just keeping your training a priority is a huge win!

          Stay tuned for another indulgence ... and use this home stretch as motivation to keep things tight when you go to LA!

            LA is going to be challenging but you're better prepared now. Keep at it mate, you're on the home stretch now!
