Day 1 - Sunday, April 27, 2008
Day 1 | Summary: It was challenging, but I succeeded.
And it showed me that I have to take full responsibility for my actions. My wonderful chef of a husband cannot be blamed for what I put in my mouth.
The drastic switch from my junk food fest on Friday-Saturday was difficult physically and mentally. I had a mild headache for most of the afternoon and a general feeling of malaise (Both went away completely after the 1st day). The mental aspect was being in the same car with my husband as he enjoyed french fries, a chili cheeseburger and coke from The Varsity - a local fast food restaurant that is so good and yet so bad! We were out furniture shopping for most of the afternoon and he wanted some fast food for the ride home. In an effort to support me, he walked inside to order his food but because of time, he had to eat it in the car.
So, there I am driving us home… I am drinking a strawberry Metabolic Drive shake and in between sips smelling the sweet greasy heaven that is emanating from his burger combo on Day 1 of my Velocity Diet. I enjoyed the smell, ‘eating’ it vicariously through him and finished my shake. No French fry, no ‘just a bite’ or anything. 100% success.
And here is a silly, non-sense thought: Is there a chance I got ‘contact calories’ just from being in the same car? I mean, I did not inhale, but…ok, well maybe I did inhale ‘the Varsity food smell’ not the other ‘contact’ high you are thinking of! LOL, let’s stay focused here!
Day 1 | The most surprising thing: I felt satisfied all day.
I was really surprised by this. I really thought I would struggle with hunger pangs all day, but was impressed that I constantly felt satiated. Even during the late evening, when my cravings are the absolute worst! I did not go to bed hungry at all and enjoyed one of the best night’s sleep I have gotten in a long time.
Day 1 | Random Thoughts: HOT-ROX = No negative side effects = Huge relief!
I am so relieved that I am able to handle HOT-ROX Extreme. This is the only part of the diet that I was not sure of. In the past, I experienced heart palpitations, shaking and cramps from other fat burners and quit taking it. Ever since then I have stayed away from these types of products.
But, after reading all the V-Diet threads here, it seemed HOT-ROX was different and I decided to give it a shot (also b/c it plays a key role in this plan). So I am relieved that from Day 1, I have not experienced any negative side effects from the HOT-ROX. For the record, I started with 1 HOT-ROX Extreme at 6 am and took a 2nd at 2 pm.
P.S. The healthy food cravings have already started, but I am sticking with the 28-day plan.
