Just finished Day 7, and had my HSM today–a BUNCH of sashimi (tilapia and salmon), one sushi roll of tuna and avocado (with brown rice), plenty of soy and wasabi, unsweetened green tea, a head of broccoli and a bell pepper (both without any sort of dressing). It felt like a cheat meal, but I have always loved sushi, sashimi and nigiri, so I doubt it’s a reflection of any changing tastes.
On the bright side, my friends got Wendy’s a few days ago, and the smell of the fries nauseated me. I think next week will be a spinach salad with walnuts and fresh raspberries, a low-fat cut of steak (rare of course!) and the topping-less baked sweet potato.
So far, I’m down to 176 lbs from 182, and I’ve lost an inch on my waist, 1/2 inch on my chest and about 1/4 inch on the rest of my body. The diet itself has gotten a lot easier, although I do have one problem–it’s hard to maintain the 30-sec or 45-sec interval between sets in the OSU gym I attend, since the machine will frequently be taken when I come back. I work around this by doing other exercises on my circuit while I wait for the machines (for the lat pulldowns or the squat rack, for example) to become available.
