Day 5 -
I am so glad the work week has started. I never thought I would say that, but I have been so busy during the day that I missed a shake and PB last night.
It has been an interesting couple of days. Yesterday, as soon as he found out I was on a diet, my boss went out and bought Pizza for everyone. Last night was Pool league, first time in 5 years I have not drank while playing.
Also, the bar was having a special, 1/2 price menu. I watched as cheese fries, tenderloins, breaded and fried everything was consumed at my table. Luckily I had held off on an earlier shake and had a double right before I went in. I did smoke 2 cigarettes, but that is a far cry from the usual pack. I have been sleeping really heavy since the start of this diet and having issues getting moving in the morning.
Today I had to attend a corporate lunch. After trying to explain why I was not eating at least 12 times, it was finally dropped. I think it is interesting that people subconsciously want others to fail at something because they know they can not do it. I had 5 different people trying to talk me out of the diet. I am continuously told that I do not need to lose weight. I am 5’11 215lbs I need to lose weight.
On a positive note I received the rest of my kit this afternoon (I finally get a break from chocolate. Currently drinking a 2 scoop strawberry, not to shabby.)
I am a little concerned, is it an issue if I am not exactly on schedule with my shakes, or if I miss one?
Tomorrow night should be interesting I am going to the USA vs Trinidad game and I am sure there will be plenty of junk food. I am not sure if I will be able to get anything into the game to eat either. Does anyone have any ideas?
I am definitely looking forward to the first HSM (lean meat, BIG Salad with lots of vegetables, maybe with hard boiled egg). Does anyone have suggestions on how to cook a chicken breast.
Thursday night is weigh in and measurements. I hope I see something to justify the first week. Does anyone have any input on how long it takes for the body to switch to burning fat?
Fitnesslady - Thanks for the info and pointing me to banu’s thread. I only made it through a couple of pages, but was rolling half the time. Whatever!)
CharlieStrange - Thanks for the input. I never realized how much; money, time, Life, I have been wasting drinking, and being hung over. The bachelor pad is actually clean, or least what passes for clean for me.
