So I started the V-Diet on Saturday mostly because I’m sick of how I look. Also, my blood pressure has been high lately - not too high, but high enough that I should be proactive. I want to get it under control before it becomes an issue.
Saturday was pretty tough for me. I craved all kinds of crazy things and was pretty nauseous for most of the day. Yesterday I was cranky and tired (I’m sure my boyfriend LOVED that). I skipped the last shake because I couldn’t drink anything else. I just ate the two tablespoons on peanut butter. I’ve never appreciated peanut butter more than I do now. I also tried putting raspberry extract in my third shake. It was soooo much better. It tasted like chocolate raspberry cake. I was so happy.
Today I’m alright, but hungry. I’m trying to find the energy to go to the gym. I will be my first time doing many of these exercises so I’m a little nervous, but hopeful. I find that the videos are really helpful. After that I’ll go on my NEPA and try to fill the time with something other than food.
I found that reading the logs and the Ask Chris forum has kept me motivated. I’m hoping that this log will keep my honest with myself and keep me going.
