Great way to wrap up the year GRADUATION POST
Overall really pleased with KB2. Its the strongest I’ve been, largely because I’ve been between jobs and had the time to fully commit. I found it easy to be diet compliant as we’ve changed our long term habits a fair amount over the years. I must admit that the weekend alcohol crept in. The Friday night gin and tonic is a standing menu item.
Looking forward, keeping a balance between work and personal commitments is a challenge for me. Kids needs trump my own needs so when it gets out of balance, it’s the exercise sleep that suffers. One I need to stay focussed on because it’s too easy to give up the exercise but the exercise helps me manage the stress and that impacts my sleep. Been a great team effort and thanks to Elissa and the Kenzai team for another great training cycle. Have a great Christmas everyone 🌲 😃
New job kicked off this week. Four work dinners in a row, 7am-11pm days. Been tough to stay on diet, been on track as much as possible. Unfortunately missed 5 workouts this which has been disappointing. This has been my best program so far so feels deflating to have such a poor exercise week so close to the end of the program. Went for a good cycle with the kids this morning and no dinners planned this week so will be hitting the cycle workouts for this final week 😅
The Christmas parties have started and next week I have a whole week of work dinners. Urgh... people bond over alcohol since it makes everyone relax. Will be trickier than usual this week to maintain the diet. Exercise going well which I am happy about. Body in smooth rest repair, tear cycle 👌
Feeling tired... had a mixed week last week with a fair bit of nausea, better this week. Cut down on tea which is helping. Not sure what that is about. Have also moved to skipping in the morning and working out in the evenings to balance things up a bit. Tralala keep going
Had 3 days off from exercise due to nausea, picked up some sort of bug. Back into it today although still not 100s. Happy Saturday in our house the Rugby World Cup win for South Africa 🇿🇦!!
So today I wore high heels in the heat and have awful blisters. Lesson on point. I really could have just put my feet up but plastered them up and soldiered on through the work out, waking away from the open door and squeezing through the crack in the mountain. Happy it’s done 😅. On the other hand, I had the dessert at a work lunch that had two courses. Didn’t win that battle and yes it’s a slippery slope if the treats sneak in. Gotta keep focussed
Been MIA with some intenseness at work, been keeping diet focussed and largely good on the exercise. Been subbing out cycling and keeping feet very flat when skipping and it’s helping the otherwise sore feet.
Had a couple of gin and tonics as an indulgence last night and it took a long walk and some coffee this morning to shake off the hangover. Stomach lining has certainly thinned!
Hope everyone going well
Alcohol has crept into the diet this weekend and food not as strong as I would have liked. Time to tighten it up again.
Finding feet sore from all the jumping and this morning substituted out jumping with cycling
Will say hello on the blogs later today. Hope everyone doing well Soph x
Been a busy couple of weeks with kids on school holidays and folks visiting. Dad not in the best of health and left me feeling very grateful we prioritise our health and also reflective that some things aren’t in our control.
Diet been pretty good, hitting the grams and good food choices.
Had two nights where we shared cocktails which has become a favourite indulgence go to. I love the egg white cocktails like a whiskey sour so some protein intake 🤣
We had our wedding anniversary this week and a kid free night so was fun sharing a couple of great drinks.
Week 5 looks like a step up so head down and on we go!
I feel like a bear that has woken up from hibernation and is constantly hungry grrrrrr
Ok so I was kind of expecting my work pants to start getting loser but not yet! Diet a bit lumpy this week with meals crammed in after 11am breakfasts due to some family commitments. Rework required this week around timing. Let’s go team! Week 4!
Doing the workouts, watching the food choices and just getting on with it. So far so good. Fear the wall that I know will come but not thinking beyond tomorrow which seems to be doing the trick
No carbs for dinner and fruit and yoghurt for hubby. What?!!!! Are our bods in that bad shape...
ok turns out that was our last diet from Beach but I see our carb portions are light for dinner. Finding myself hungry as the daily exercise finds a rhythm
Looking forward to these next 90 days, 8 days in! Sorry for the slow start on the blogs
I am based in Brisbane, Australia. Winters are mild and summers hot and humid. Enjoying the cool weather of spring, 26 degrees C today.
I am a mum of two and recently added a cat to our family. I am training with my husband Fabio B on KB2. Love this as we get to share the food prep, hold each other to account and work-out together regularly.
I am between jobs so goal is to use the time to get fit again. I value the structure of Kenzai and this great community.
