Hi all ? well I am taking the V-Diet plunge tomorrow. I?ve been lurking and reading posts for a while, so am hoping I learned a few lessons from all of you.
I?ve been working out consistently for years…love it. It?s the food thing (ie?eating, binging) that I can not seem to ever control. I do really well during the week, but when it comes to the weekend?well, I just eat and eat. Of course, I justify it as my ?cheat meal?, which subsequently turns into a cheat weekend, every weekend. So, this is a ?stop the madness? and get you freakin? eating under control.
Although the workout portion may be challenging (I?ll be doing the advanced workout); I think sticking to the diet will be more difficult. A few obstacles I?ll need to cross: I travel 70% of the time for work; I am out for lunch with people about 3 times per week and dinner 1-2x weekly and am in hotels when I am on the road.
I head to Arizona today and chose a hotel/suite accommodations. My room has a full kitchen, which means I can freeze my shakes and take them with me for the day. The mini-blender fits easily into my suitcase. Also, I portioned out (in the snack ziplock bags) my entire week of meals; labeling the day and shake?eg. Monday #1, Thursday#2, etc. I left out the Superfood. So many of you have said the Superfood does not taste well. I?ll add the Superfood in on the fly or will chug, drink, lick from a spoon separately. I?ll have to see how it tastes.
Hotel gyms suck. I?ll go a Lifetime Fitness, which is a mile from the hotel. They are open 24 hours, so I?ll be able to work out at 430 in the morning. My concern is that I don?t know that gym well?so the routine and transitioning from one exercise to the next may be an issue on Monday.
I?ll post pictures (urgh?I am TOTALLY dreading these) and measurements tomorrow.
Cheers ? Kim
