In about 8 days, I'll have completed two months of exercise and changed my eating habits. I'm confused and excited that I'm so near the finish line.I do feel really lucky to experience this training. I thought that I'm almost 70 years old and I would have to live with this backache forever. I was very discouraged at the beginning when it only got worse and worse. My daughter and son-in-law made me realize that this training is very beneficial for me. At the beginning I didn’t think it was possible to do these workouts, but they supported me in many ways. Now, I'm holding my body with a better posture and I’m more energetic every day. I love to go shopping and I would be devastated if I can't walk anymore with back pain.
I went to see my friends at a Cantonese opera in China yesterday. I haven't seen them for few months already. When I saw them, they said I looked 10 YEARS YOUNGER!! I am very physically fit and feel healthy and it shows. So they all were very eager to ask what I have done to achieve these results. I immediately introduced the Kenzai Silver program to them and showed them my workouts on the phone. They were all interested and kept asking me about the details of the program. Some of them were asking for their family and some wanted to join. I know the benefits of this program and I would wish them health and happiness too.
I’m so grateful it’s the 38th day today! I really enjoyed the Indulgence experienced last week. Haven’t had the time to blog about it till now. To mark the occasion, I asked my 2 girlfriends out for lunch to have my indulgence which is Singaporean laksa noodles which I use to love. The experience turned out to be quite interesting because the noodles were disappointing. It was as good as I remembered it to be. It felt like a waste of my indulgence quote (hope another one is coming soon!). However I had great company and amazing time catching up with my girlfriends so the afternoon was very pleasant after all.
Since I did the Kenzai program I feel there are many changes. For example, I go to the bathroom more often I guess I’m eating more and drinking more water on this program. This change really surprises me!
I can’t believe I can run on the treadmill now! It’s amazing! The first day I was holding my back doing my brisk walks! I’m so grateful to be given this chance by my daughter and son in law to be strong and healthy again. Many of my friends are starting to compliment my new posture and they say I have a young and healthy glow! It’s nice to be noticed and complimented to look younger, who doesn’t like that?!
So I’m really looking forward to the next month of workouts and can’t wait to see where this program will bring me! I never thought of quitting or cheating in this past month all thanks to my family and the supportive members on my team! Keep up the great work everybody!
So happy I got a “half-way there” surprise from my daughter and son-in-law!! This is just the motivation I need to push through this second half of my training! I also got a new iPhone so there’s a protector case and Apple-tech charging all in one station . And also workout headphones, perfect for moving around when I do my workouts!
Today I have completed the 28th day of the program. Can never stress enough how grateful I am for my family's support everyday. Eating a healthy diet with limited ingredients is not a great challenge for me because I usually don't eat much food. But I do like to eat snacks such as biscuits and cookies usually. I'm so excited with the INDULGENCE that's happening this upcoming week! My husband keeps giving me a lot of suggestions on what to eat for my indulgence. To my surprise, he seems happier and excited than I am! He proposed a lot of my favorite foods however I'm not especially happy. Before I thought about my cravings and what I would indulge after this program. But now that I'm allowed to actually have an indulgence, I can't decide on what to eat. Anyone have any good suggestions? Well, I can't decide on an indulgence but I'm certain that I will try my best to complete this program with a clean diet and productive workouts! Hope everyone is feeling great and energetic this week too! Keep it up everyone!
I am very grateful for my accomplishments on the 19th day today. Two days ago I had to leave Hong Kong to Macau. I thought I would have to give up my workouts and diet because of the inconvenience. For my lunch and dinner I had to eat at a restaurant but still tried to eat clean (minimal salt and oil). I struggled to return to Hong Kong at 7:00 pm and luckily managed to fit in my workouts at the end of the day . Im happy in the end, I defeated the demons and finished the exercise portion for the day. I was out all day so I didn’t eat my fruit portions and made me realize it’s very difficult to find fruits when you’re on the go.
Yesterday, I went to see the physiotherapist. I am satisfied with my current lower back situation. I can now brisk walk the treadmill for 30 minutes. I’ve been seeing the physiotherapist twice a week and it’s now reduced to one time a week. I hope that I can keep exercising and improve my condition. I’m so thankful for everything I have achieved up to this point on my fitness and eating. It’s my grandson’s midterm break this week and I’m enjoying our time playing and running around together this week.
Today is my 11th day on Kenzai Silver program. So far so good. I was a bit worried at the beginning about the exercise plus diet but I'm very lucky to have a great support network that includes my daughter, son-in-law, friends, and son. When problems or difficulties arise, they are always there to answer my questions and offer solutions. This assistance really helps me to adapt to the program smoothly. I'm also learning new methods to cook oil and salt free foods. I've attached a photo of one of my meals. It's fish with roasted vegetables and quinoa with turmeric.
I'm happy to say that I've lost 2 kg so far!! I'm so happy. Also my back pain has greatly reduced. Even my physiotherapist is impressed in my progress. I went into the physiotherapist's clinic without being able to stand straight, but now I can stand straight without pain or holding onto my lower back!
