The Kenzai Compound!

My family and I have been taken in by the Blackwell-Moores who are kind friends and stalwart Kenzai Trainees:

My home currently looks like the scene from E.T. when Elliot was in quarantine.

Recap: A very small construction job that was meant to create a little lofted space in my son's, shared walk in closet that we call their bedroom, revealed mold n the ceiling and walls! So the sheet rock has been torn off the entire upstairs walls and ceiling . New venting, insulation and sheet rock should be done by the end of this week, but we're going on week two of hospitality at chalet B-M.

Anyway, our house looks like the ET scene with plastic sealing off any chance for the new super villain MOLD to escape and infect the rest of the world. And, Liz, Wendy and their kids have been gracious hosts. This morning we had a little chuckle as we were all rounding out our Kenzai exercises. Photo for proof.

Many lessons learned from staying with the Blackwell-Moores about living with a lot of acceptance. BUT the best moment to date was this. I saw Liz cooking up her egg white dinner and when it was done cooking she grabbed the egg white right off the hot skillet, while it was still on the burner, with her bare hand and then proceeded to eat it. That image right there is what I want my Iron program to look like! Game on!

Hopefully you haven’t been corrupting my Kettlebell 2 trainee with any more beers or gs cookies. Good beginning form she’s showing for those renegade tri extensions.

      What a terrific blog post, Thomas. A perfect illustration of the Kenzai community at its best. Even those of us who communicate only through the blogs know there is a community of support in this program so it is thrilling to hear that you have extended that community value-set to in person connection. Bravo. And good luck on the house construction effort. Never easy but this one sounds like it got way beyond your expectations. This, too, shall pass!

        @Susan, This too shall pass. You nailed it right there. And, for a botched construction job it really has gone as well as it possibly could.

          Thomas, believe me I have been there on botched construction jobs. Just makes you appreciate it all the more...when it is DONE! (As i write this I realize it's a lot like Kenzai programs...you appreciate them so much when they are DONE!)
