So week one was pretty rough. Well the first few days at least. Cycling 4 flavors you would think would give you a lot of variety but when you’re having 5 shakes a day that isn’t really the case.
The HOT-ROX has been making my sternal area very warm and almost like a nausea feeling, but not in my stomach…just the sternal area. Very weird, but it only lasts for 20 mins or so then it’s gone. The HOT-ROX doesn’t make me jittery or anything which is good.
I’m a pharmacy student intern at walgreens (going to be a pharmacist next year god willing ) and am doing my rotations right now. So I bring my shakes to work with me and slam them down with water every few hours.
Everyone thinks I’m torturing myself, but I shrug it off. This is something I decided I’m 100% going to take care of, and don’t give a damn if it kills me.
Been trying to hermit myself away when I’m not out at work all day, but I went out with some friends to a comedy club last night, and only had a diet coke at dinner with them beforehand. I realized I can still have a social life even doing the V-diet.
It does get rough when my roomate is constantly cooking tasty food downstairs, but my will is stronger than my stomach at the moment. Approaching Sunday of the first week (today), I was really starting to look forward to the steak I’m going to have tonight. I fully agree that this is what’s going to get me through the diet.
The Nepa walks have been ok to say the least. I walk about 2 miles everyday at a brisk pace, and it’s becoming my time to reflect on all things life.
It’s tough when everyone around you is telling you this is a rediculous diet and you should just eat solid food healthy, but they don’t understand I’ve tried that so many times only to fail within the first month due to horrible food cravings (cake, icecream, etc. )
I’ve realized already within the first week that my cravings for sweets have all but been vanquished. I just want some healthy meat and some vegetables or fruits!! I never thought I’d stop craving those foods but it’s already starting.
