So glad it’s almost the weekend. Can really use the solid meal this weekend. I’ve given myself a new resoluion to really kick things up several notches on the lifting and NEPA front. I need to be consistent with those activities to get the most out of this process and my money that I spent on the supps. I’m down almost 10 lbs. at this point (less than 2 weeks).
I really want to break into the 160s. I can’t remember the last time I was 160 anything. I’m lighter now at 176 than I can ever remember. We’ll see what the tape measure says this weekend and see what the camera reveals.
I recognize that about middle of week two my moods typically even out. The first week or so I’m a total asshole and very cranky. But about mid-week on week 2 (this has happened every time) I seem to mellow out and become more pleasant again. My wife has stated on several occassions that she hates this diet. Hahahaha… I can understand.
Sometimes I’m not so fond of it myself. Love the results though.
So i’m thinking of axing the natural peanut butter at the end of each evening. Although it’s my favorite part of the entire day, I’m going to see how that affects my progress. Also, I’ve noticed that while on this diet I almost can’t stand diet sodas. They’re just too sweet. I’m sure that this diet sort of resets my taste buds and makes them more sensitive. I guess that’s good.
Another thing that this diet is supposed to do is change your cravings for bad foods. Well, I’d say that’s partially true so far for me. I mean, it is true that everything solid tastes so much better after drinking your nutrition day after day. Even the most “boring” healthy foods (which I actually like most of the time) are so much better while on this diet, but I have to say that I still crave and think about eating “not so healthy” foods. Like right now I’m really craving the Big Taste Tacos from Taco Bell. I’m not typically a huge Taco Bell fan but those sound really tasty right now. Also something I never eat is sushi but it sounds awesome right now!
So we’ll see how everything turns out at the end of the 4 week strict phase. Almost half way through this deal.
