So long story short I’m a runner / Triathlete first, but I have recently gotten hurt and unable to swim for a month but won’t interfere with my NEPA and lifting. I’ve been tossing the idea of the velocity diet around for awhile but due to running / triathlons I have never been able to take a solid month off from that type of training till now. My “A” race isn’t until October 25th which is the Austin Half Ironman…so my training plan doesn’t kick off until June 1st so I figured why not the velocity diet now. My goal has always been to be under 150lbs and have abs that POP! ( in the triathlon world 150+ females are in the Athena category, and even though I can compete in my age group it’s very hard to keep up with the 120lb 5’2 girls)…anyways
I was going to allow myself to ease into the diet but figured why not just go out with a bang and enjoyed a Breakfast buffet, chips and dip all day and Golden Carrel buffet for dinner last night including a late night snack at IHop after the movies. (So I went out with a BIG bang) So I’m guessing my beginning stats might be a little off. I’m not so much concerned with what the weight / bf numbers tell me more than I am with what the mirror and measurements do.
Stats Day #1:
BF%: 22.5 ( Scale told me this, I think this may be a little high but I could also be wrong)
Bellybutton stomach area: 31"
Chest: 36" 1/4’
Upper belly: 27".5’
Here are my before pictures: I wasn’t sure which type to take and as you can tell I’m a horrible picture taker…
