I wasn’t planning on doing a log but thanks to all of the free time I have thanks to not eating I changed my mind.
Background: I’ve been weight training since 2008, I went from 220 down to 160 thanks to a lot of running and learning what eating healthy meant. But any big guy that has lost a lot of size can tell you that this was hard psychologically so I began a quest to add some size. I spent about 3 years slowly gaining weight and slowly losing a little and slowly gaining some more.
Then in 2009 I discovered the sport of strongman and quickly realised that being 190lbs wasn’t going to cut it, and by the end of 2010 I was 235lbs.
So onto my current stats.
Calves L 17.125" R 17"
Arms: L 16.75" R 17"
I started the diet on Sunday the 1st, and so far it’s going pretty good. The biggest problem has been breaking habits. I’ve only been hungry a handful of times, but find myself always wanting to eat. To combat this I emptied the fridge and loaded up on about 10 types of caffeine free tea.
My other issue was the first workout, I felt sick the entire time and really had to pace myself not to throw up. I’m following the Intermediate workout, and hopefully once my stomach gets used to the sweetness of MD I’ll be able to put in some more intensity.
Going to weight in Saturday morning, do the VBurn challenge than go to a nice Bistro for one of the best steaks in town!
