I will get my measurements and photos up later today, but I wanted to make sure that I put my flag in the sand for all to see: yesterday I started Velocity. I am in very good shape from running and and training for MMA, but I want to lose the the small gut that I have and get ripped.
I usually run greater than 20 miles per week at a minimum and am a bit worried that I will lose a lot of my endurance and speed, but it will be worth it in 30 days. I can always get back on the road when I am done with the diet. I have a 200 mile relay race that I need to be in top form for in August, so this is as late a start for the V-Diet as I could go.
I blew it out on Monday with an epic Easter brunch and now it is time to get lean and mean.
I am a father of three great kids, have a wife who looks like a supermodel even after the 3 kids and I am not willing to be anything less than exceptional in return. Seriously, she is back to washboard after about a month postpartum. What a lady!
Yesterday was easy with the food although the leucine arrives today so I started without it. I have been replacing a meal of two for a few weeks to get ready so the shakes just seem natural now.
The workout seems almost too light thus far, but I trust the folks at T-Nation.
I will keep everyone posted with my progress.
