In a recent inside out weight loss pod cast i was introduced to the term Kaizen, borrowed from the Japanese. It means continuous improvement.
From the website:
The aim of kaizen is to create a state of continuous improvement, to make that your default, so that everything that happens becomes an opportunity for small incremental improvement.
Mining your everyday experiences for areas where you can become just a little bit better. Areas where you can handle the situation just a little bit better next time".So, i thought about my recent week and if there was anything that i could have changed? I was with in my calories for the week. My workouts were great:
2 days of intense cardio
1 circuit (cardio + weights)
2 (including today) Full body weight workouts
1 Stretch workout
5 dog walks (everyday m-f)
And i drink mostly water so no problems there either. So...I've come to the conclusion that i did the best i could. There was nothing that would have made my week any better. Guess my weight loss will be slow here on in...i have to learn to accept that!
