wooohoooo! GRADUATION POST
That was a long 90 days! I dont think I lost an ounce (my own fault for not following diet 100%) but I do feel like I toned up and I am happy where I am.
I've been mixing up my workouts lately...trying some new classes near my home. I feel like I've gotten pretty strong and I am in pretty good cardio shape. Just cannot manage to keep my diet super strict to lose the last bit of fluff around my mid section. This is my life long struggle...if I am super strict for about a week or two it goes away. I enjoy myself a bit and it comes back. In the long run, not sure if it is worth living life with no indulgence to have a flat stomach (which at 51 after two kids is never gonna be flat anyway.) But I think I am in a place of good balance right now...
took my daughter on spring break last week and was def not following diet. Did get some workouts in. Came home worried about getting on scale but was pleasantly surprised that I stayed the same. Back to it this week!
I've sort of hit a plateau....have been about 85% on food (I'm a bit hungry with what I've been given which is less food than prior kenzai training programs) and I still haven't gotten a pre and post workout snack (which I am eating anyway since I tend to do more exercise than what's prescribed and it makes me hungry). I'm going to try to be very strict this week, in preparation for my daughter's mother/ daughter
senior spring break trip next week where I am sure there will lots of bathing suits and indulgence!
Had a week of travel and lots of eating out. Did the best I could but definitely was not totally
In it with the diet. I did, however, get some good daily cardio in. Will get back on wagon this week!
I actually didn't mind the dinner as much as I had anticipated! It was mindless and pretty filling!!! Though i imagine it will get old pretty fast!
Could not have come at a better time! I'll be having it on super bowl sunday! Maybe a chicken wing or two and a small slice of cake.
All is going reasonably well so far. I would say I have been about 85% compliant on food and about same on exercise. I'm going to strive for above 90% for the last 60 days!
Had a good week, especially after I realized that I was allowed more food than just an egg white for dinner :)
I've noticed results and been pretty full. A few cheats -- but mostly swaps. Like for instance, a square of dark chocolate instead of an evening fruit.
Have been pretty diligent on the exercise front. Knee feeling good. seeing some more definition in arms.
All in all, happy to be back on track....
Okay I saw everyone was commenting about how much food they had so I looked again and now my diet is different!! I looked on Saturday and "next weeks diet" was a apple / egg white / yogurt dinner....now it's a normal carb/protein/veg dinner. Thank goodness!!!! Not sure what happened but I'm happy! Though I do think I lost a little weight doing the more restrictive plan! Ha!
So far I feel like I am off to a good start -- (I have done body 1 before and 1/2 of body 2 before I injured my knee skiing). The exercise in the first few weeks always feels a little light to me, so I often supplement with more cardio. But I have been fighting a cold for the past few days, so I feel like it is perfect right now.
As for the food this week, wow! It is sparce for dinner! In prior training, I don't think I ever had the egg white-apple dinner. Or it kicked in several weeks later. So this was a bit of a shock and I do feel some hunger. We'll see how a few days of this goes....might need a little more sustenance!!!!
have been doing great on the exercise front and so so on diet. But definitely better than when I started! This time of year is tough!!
was a little sloppy with my diet this week -- swapped a few pieces of chocolate or a bowl of popcorn for some of my "fruit snacks." Was pretty solid on the exercise front. Need to work to be more diligent on diet next week.
Done! GRADUATION POST
Happy to be done. I liked the exercises in sculpt initially, but too much of them was a little too much for my recovering knee injury. Had to modify a lot. I think overall I prefer the full body workouts, so going to begin chisel today. And will finish just in time for my ACL surgery in August!!! Have a great summer everyone!
