Program progress:
K5o2cu0mztcpjiftchme

All in on workouts
Sleep better
Diet - still squeezing in some non kompliance but ready to drop teh hammer Monday!

For new team mates - My beautiful wife Meghan had knee replacement surgery Monday morning.

Good day - Meghan getting much better nice shirt from full attention to focused recovery. A quick shout out as things are going well. Clearly the surgeon had a part...BUT
Meghan did a super job staying engaged and active in Kenzai as the surgery grew nearer - this health momentum and her participation in Kenzai has had a potent and critical part in teh solid recovery to date. We her it often how the medical community is dumbfounded by the KENZAI effect...I see it happening here - so great.

Off to Yin Yoga with my daughter

Shout out to Jim Matt for cool new shirt in pictures.

WHEW - Meghan is home from Surgery - all went well and she is on the mend - first shower today and mobility increasing. Maybe a new program should be nurse - harder than it looks.

As Beach ended I have relaxed the diet a bit [ice cream] for the week. Following 8 tight weeks I was ready for a break. Ready to go all in on Monday when the new diets kick in.

I am current with workouts and lessons.
Sleep very ragged with hospital visit and every 4 hour medication delivery.

I am excited for Booty , as in mine has gotten bigger since hip replacement 22 months ago. Fun to see the progress we can make. AND - If ABS are made in teh kitchen...where is the booty made?

Funny being back on the old app - great to be back in the Kommunity proper.

I dare anyone on Team Myrtle to have more fun than I will. Blog early, Blog often, reply to team always!

Game on

Beach WRAP

Beach was a blast - You know it is working when you put your head on teh ground gasping for breath

It was fun to work with the new app = boxes to check FTW

Diet was odd - just like the same diet I always have - not optimal. I made some adjustments myself - teh most important - better for me to have veg at night rather than fruit.

Off to Booty

I was in my glory today with Jim Matt [yes that Jim Matt] was in Asheville. He and his beautiful wife joined me at Yoga and then enjoyed a cup of coffee with fruit at our home.

Awesome and way too much fun

Fish Twist FTW

Quick check in with teh rest of the Kenzai-verse

Beach going well - I like the format and such a win to be barefoot again.The app is a winner fo rDiet - as a box checker so satisfying to check and picture each food input - very helpful

Diet is tight and clean [although my diet seems like all the diets before - not ultra tight

Headwinds - Next week in Yom Kippur. while I am not jewish - last year I liked fasting and reviewing the year with my Jewish friends. So I will fast. I think best stick with workout schedule and just back off for the remainder of the day.

Next up - Megan's knee replacement is teh 14th - I will wrap beach on the 13th. I am going to redo booty. So my new program is now called - Tshirt - Beach - Booty , a 14 week gauntlet of focus and fun.

Finally - teh upside of the heat wave is a continued harvest from teh garden - flow might be eggplant with a bit o luck

PLUS - there may be a Kenzai IRL next week>>>stay tuned...as it would be epic!

Off to a strong start with Beach

Diet - tight and clean [occasional overgramming veg at night]
Workout - 13 for 13
LEssons - 13 for 13
Handstands - yes between stretching has been a winner
New App - love the inclusion of diet / meals / food inputs in the system - I think my full adoption will continue to do more blogging on the web

Sad news / headwinds - This past week was our final week with our dog Samuel. He was a rascal. Easy for me to think I need to overeat to cope with the strong feelings of loss. Watching his spirit leave was heart wrenching and inspirational [I saw it leave and I know it went somewhere]. The bigger challenge is the hole in our lives following his departure. I think we will we gentle with our selves this weekend at the river.

Fail FTW
Y1ujctvucsbbrq641vs0

I love teh new APP for everything but blogging [I am not a phone / device writer] TheVideo log is fun

But not the same

So here is a recent conversation in my mind during the BLAST sequence

Not scoop push ups
I can only do so many
Cannot do any more
Just one more
No more really
fail
OK one more
just try
Grunt louder
made it

Not timed lunar lunge
I can only do so many
Cannot do any more
Just one more
No more really
fail
OK one more
just try
Grunt louder
made it

Not Salamander push ups
I can only do so many
Cannot do any more
Just one more
No more really
fail
OK one more
just try
Grunt louder
made it

"DANG" said Pepper ... this is kicking my tail.

Off to a great start with Beach. We are the beta group for the new app - which in the initial phase does not interact / interface with the web site feed. So off the grid. Also way behind on blog support. Bummer.

Beach blast
Lesson 7-7
Diet 7-7
workouts 7-7
I like Beach - super simple - I get to be bare foot again - so great! Except for knee cappers - all is well. They are tough to go for that long. Diet is tight and so far no egg whites - so no methane!

APP

I really like it - so easy to use video for posts. There is a whole section for meals and food pics - box checker in me is super happy. Fun that it literally takes it a day as a time. The future is bright.

Hopefully soon both universes will be united again - I miss everyone.

Fulg6bn5a8paycudsaue

OK - that was very very very long.

At the end I could barely lift my arms - and it was another hot mid day workout [stupid on my part]

The lessons have been good in this - I can so feel my body going, "hey sport...you are at the limit"

Diet tight and clean - squeaky plus
Sleep - A+

Big news - I invented a new Kenzai sequence - the whiplash
Take T shirt - then Beach immediately after [get jacked then ripped?] - 8 weeks of blast

It ends right before Meghan operation

Weak workout?
Jtbplmi5p9i3wltv6xmo

All on track - but a weak workout today

Wonky day - did the cardio in the AM, and had to come back for the workout later...Sails were not full .

I vote Reclining leg raise as teh most painful exercise to date - first set strong, then huge drop off...i look at it and think how hard can this be...but then...super hard.

Also, missed morning fruit and yogurt [i push this to mid morning] - better tomorrow. morning yoga ftw!

Schedule win, Caroline is on the film crew for the UT game Sat, so we are not going. Possible Brunch Sunday, immediately after program conclude!!!

Guests have departed - total diet victory. And I had mucho fun playing Grampy - who knew I could make balloon animals

Diet - 7 for 7
Workouts - 7 for 7
Lessons - 7 for 7

Blogging, Sleep and YOga were the casualties, more yoga than sleep really

Had a solid week of progress with the scale and mirror at yoga says its working [so do clothes]

Fired up for a strong week last , with a big trip to Knoxville on Saturday.

Go Team go


So far so good w guests and diet - did a bit of overgamming w veg and fish at dinner, aside from that. Squeaky clean

Lesson question - earlier it talked about the impact speed has on muscle growth. What about load - I always thought
fewer reps / more weight = bulk
more reps / less wight = functional strength

Survey says?

APp whine = on exercises where there are alteranting arms, legs core - how in the world can there be odd # of reps?????come on man!

burned many many calories playing on teh floor with the kids

Hurricane relief - oh my
Sdjv5spoczf4s9bxfjq9

Friends have left teh North Carolina coast to avoid hurricane problems and will stay with us for a few days. They are dear to me and the girls (5 & 3) adore me and call me Grampy ... super good for Pepper J.

But, they also bring a great deal of non kompliant food - see pictures (choc almonds in teh bag . My freinds wife is Italian and is CERTAIN I need some of the cake. I made a deal that I would not have any tonight.

Will power shield crisis in the horizon.

But today Grandfather training was awesome.

Diet - tight as a tick
Workout - strong today, I love the body weight workouts - so fun for me and barefoot FTW
Sleep solid
Also did 6:00 AM workout -
Don't stop - won't stop
