I have been off the grid. Off the grid of work, life and most definitely Kenzai. I will spare you all the details but I will say that a part of it has been the frustration I have been feeling over this IRON Program. I do not like to do anything half-assed. Start something and I must finish it, somehow, someway. But I'm struggling with what I already knew...going to the gym and using free weights is difficult. Difficult because I have few options. There are few gyms where I live. There is a YMCA, one hotel gym, one free weight lunkhead space and a CrossFit. The time I have to workout is really only the morning --- that is the time I can count on to be "free" --- but the gym is too crowded. The area where I do rubber-band workouts is WIDE OPEN and available cuz most everybody is in the dance studio or in the WAIT room. I travel quite a bit and hotel gyms are not well suited for IRON. I am simply finding it difficult to get a routine going. I want to use free weights and a bah but to date I've been using Dbellz. In these first 15 days I have actually been to the gym and able to use the weight room ONCE! (keep in mind when I say use the wait room I mean to use it efficiently)...Arrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhh!
Last week this frustration lead to me straying off the Kenzai-track...no exercise, poor food choices and booze. None of it to excess, just too wobbly for my liking.
So it's time to re-group and re-commit...it's that simple. In the words of my good friend Rowdy Ronda Rousey, "everything you are going through and everything you have gone through will be worth the struggles and frustrations."
