I started the V-Diet last week and was going to do the program on my own. However I was struggling the first week and read a quote that really helped me regain my motivation.
This is paraphrased:
"People come to me and ask me to help them achieve their goals. Then I ask myself ‘what does this person really want and what are they going to do so they don’t get it.’ Most of the time we create the obstacles to the very thing we desire. This is what you have to remember: if it is humanly possible then the only thing that’s left is that it might be hard."
So I decided to come here to support others and be supported. Plus it seems like you guys are having way too much fun.
I am on day 9 today so I will recap what I have done so far to help anyone who is thinking about starting.
(Pasted from my work doc)
5 shakes and supps, Surge
I woke up at 445am and got through the day with no caffeine or stimulant. I felt good all day, good energy and workout. I crashed around 730, however felt fine at home around 830pm. Hard day, nonstop from 445am to 8pm, so if I got through everything will be easy.
5 shakes and supps
Today was a struggle. I felt foggy all morning and at workout. Felt like I was going to pass out. Felt a little better after Qigong. Very little mental clarity at work
5 Shakes and supps
Very tired all day, low energy. Another long day from 445am to 8pm. Really good workout. Need to take mornings off
Day Four and Five
Both days really sucked. I basically prayed all day Thursday I would make it through the day. Waking up at 445am does not help. Great workout on Friday however I crashed when I got home. Out all damn night
Meals 1-3-shakes and supps
HSM-Steak, sweet potato fries, steamed veggies, handful of blackberries. Fucking great
V-Burn challenge rocked. I got done in 42:40 on the advanced workout. I did the session outside after it had rained and had a hard time getting my damn feet up on the tree for handstand pushups.
5 Shakes and supps
Low energy all day, I relaxed and watched Masters and basketball all day
Today was my bitch, I felt great all day, fist time since on diet. I woke up at 545 and went all day non stop. Great workout no crash
Bent Over Row-185-6,4, 4, 3, 3
Ab Rollout-standing(which might me the hardest ab exercise of all time)-5,5,4,4,3
Did my 25 min of walking this morning. Good energy this morning, started to fade on my way to work. I realized there is a difference between fading and fear of fading. Also I had some crazy cravings today, A1 steak sauce, steak, veggies, peanut butter.
Meal 1-Shake, supps
