The HOT-ROX Extreme are really fucking with me, gave me hot and cold flashes yesterday and made me want to yack this morning. I remember last time I got used to this, hope it happens soon because it is totally unpleasant. I am doing my workout at lunch today and will post it up later.

Feel great! The wheat or carb withdrawl symptoms have vanished. It was not fun feeling like I was going to vomit every morning for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th days. Not cool at all.

I WILL BE GOING GLUTEN FREE AFTER THIS ROUND OF THE V-DIET IS OVER. I hope to succeed where I have failed post diet before. I always made progress, but never the progress I wanted to make.

Yes- It will be my 4th marathon I have run. 26.2 miles or whatever.
On top of that I have placed (top 3) in twelve triathalons and four duathalons in the past 4 years. I place in the Clydesdale division which is 200lbs+ with no age group.

Why are you laughing? Am I supposed to be offended by your post? Your wording could be seen as being very offensive.

Total Weight lost: 6.3lbs.
Total inches lost: 6.2"

My arms lost some size because I have not been lifting enough. I’ll use the excuse of three children at home and my partner at work took a vacation so I have been working 12 hour days. I will up the intensity this week and I should see the fullness of my bicep/tricep areas come back to size. Normally the 2nd & 3rd week of the V-Diet is the best for me in terms of inches loss around mid section.

UH OH!!!
I missed my afternoon shake so I didn’t eat from noon until 6:30pm and I was craving everything, it is not good to miss shakes on this diet… I slipped up and skipped my afternoon and evening shake and instead had twelve green grapes, a cup of large curd cottage cheese and a 200calorie bag of popcorn. I feel bad, but I did finish my night with the night shake and don’t plan on screwing up today.
