Thanks, Falco1 and MeinHerzBrennt!
The first day of the diet is about what I expected - I was hungry most of the day. The hunger pangs that came during the first 3 shakes weren’t too bad but between shakes 3 and 4 and 4 and 5 were pretty bad. I found myself looking at the clock every couple of minutes wishing it would be time for the next shake. But again, I expected this so it wasn’t more than I could handle. I had a hard time sleeping this past night and I’m not sure if it was the HOT-ROX or the start of the diet. I started taking HOT-ROX on Saturday but did not have any issue sleeping that night so hopefully this past night won’t be the norm.
Today will be my first V-Diet workout I’ll post how it went later today.[/quote]
So my first workout while on the V-Diet was a little disappointing. Someone stole the dipping belt at my gym so I had to either hold a dumbbell between my feet or rig a weightlifting belt to hold weight. Either way I couldn’t use maximum weight for chins or dips which sucked. I was able to use heavy weight for the DL though.
I decided to do DL instead of overhead squats today because I just couldn’t get the proper form for the overhead squat. I should have been practicing that lift during the past weeks leading up to this diet but I forgot. I have a bar at home and I’m going to practice over the next week so hopefully my form will be on for next Monday.
Since I couldn’t use max weight for chins and dips I ended up doing 9 complexes instead of 7 and since I had trouble rigging the weightlifting belt to hold the weight or dropping the DB between my feet the rest period before chins or dips was longer than 30 seconds. So basically today’s workout was not as hard as I hoped it would be. I had plenty of gas in the tank when I was finished. I ordered a dipping belt and I should have it before next Monday. For my NEPA I’m going to walk about 3/4 of a mile which will be all uphill. It takes me about 15 minutes and when I’m at the top I’m huffing and puffing.
So that’s it for me today. I won’t be able to respond if anyone has any questions because I don’t have internet access at home. Until tomorrow…Peace out!
