Well, here it goes! No turning back now.
About me: Have been training on and off for about 4-5 years, but can not seem to get a good period of diet and hard training at the same time. I’ll fall into a pattern of lifting hard, eating clean, then falling back into bad eating habits, then falling out of training. I tend to suffer from that all or nothing mentality of letting one screw up lead me down a path of “screw it, lets gorge on beer and burgers and cigs” Anyhow, realized last week that I had broken 200lbs for the first time in my life, and not in a good way! I have decided it is time to get serious about building good habits and a good base for my life moving forward.
Perhaps Erasmus got it right when he said that “A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit.” I am convinced that the only way I can really drive out the unwanted habits surrounding my nutrition is with a structured set of new habits. And when looking for structure, you can only imagine the delight I had in finding the Velocity diet! So, I have got all of my supplements ready to go, portioned in labeled bags in my fridge, and am hitting the ground with the metaphorical nail and hammer in hand.
