TGIF -- After a long week of being sick and working crazy long hours I am glad that it is Friday! And Friday usually means Kenpo X day which is also a good thing. My wife Annie didn't feel like driving to the gym today so she decided to join me for the Kenpo X workout! It is always nice to have a workout partner so I always enjoy when she decides to BRING IT!
Kenpo was fun. I tried to to really let loose with the punches in the first sequence. I also focused on height with my kicks today as well and I felt like I was able to really Bring It! Annie felt like she got a good work out too! Every time I get to the blocks in Kenpo X and we do the downward blocks it reminds me of "wax on, wax off" from the Karate Kid, hence the pic to the right!
My diet went well today also. No slip ups and I got in about 2700 calories -- right on target. I briefly touched on the subject of switching back to Phase 2 of the Nutrition Guide a few posts back. I was doing Phase 3 which was a high carb diet and I was initially concerned with doing this phase because I felt like I still needed to shed some fat. Phase 2 is the more balanced carb /protein version. When I was doing Phase 3 I gained a little weight and after the first week I cannot say I had a noticeable increase in my energy level from Phase 2 so I switched back. The last day of Phase 3 I weighed 174 lbs. This morning I weighed in at 167 lbs so I am pleased with the switch back. The Nutrition Guide says everyone is different and you need to listen to your body so I did and it has worked out good!
