DAY 1 pics and measurements: spoiler alert, I’m a hairy guy, which definitely doesn’t help see the definition I’m working for, but it’s easier to see in person in front of a mirror than on the pic. Comes off in the summer, keeps me warm in the winter

HOT-ROX twice a day, and I had leucine already, so I’m using that as well. Flameout and Superfood as directed.
Had my first shake for breakfast, it was very filling and tasted great. I’ve only had chocolate Metabolic Drive until today, had a chocolate/vanilla in the morning, it tasted like cake batter! 10 oz water a few ice cubes with 2 scoops protein makes a think, very filling shake, esp. with the flax seed.
I also brought a mini-fridge/freezer and a small blender into my classroom, eliminating the need to go to the teacher’s lounge every day to see brownies and doughnuts on the table, along with the “your’e not having any?!” comments that go with it. Looking forward to the work out today, although I will miss my pre w/o Finibar! Not having any problems with hunger, and if I do I’ll deal with it. Currently drinking lunch, it is WAY easier drinking shakes than making food for the week and pre packing 3 meals a day.
Evening update: had a great workout. I work out at home currently, we’re moving in a couple of months and ordering a power rack with bars and plates. Until then I have adjustable dumbbells, a weighted backpack, pull up bar, medicine ball and push up bars.
Front Squat (52.5 lb dumbbells in each hand, 40lb weighted backpack) - 145lbs - 5,5,4,4,2
Weighted Chin Up - 35lbs weighted backpack - 5,4,3,2,2,2,2
Dumbbell Chest Press - 52.5lb each - 15,7,7,6
Hanging Knee Raise w 10lb weight (don’t have ab wheel, used this one from one of the transition workouts) - 5,5,5,5
Workout nutrition was one scoop Surge, one serving MAG-10. After training took my dog on an hour walk, she’s a great walking partner.
Doing a few pulse fasts have helped prepare for V-Diet, but I’ve felt more than full all day, and was still full from dinner for the bedtime shake. Chocolate with peanut butter so I choked it down. The toughest part of the day was coming home from school and my fiance, who is also my training partner, and a badass, was eating a turkey burger and chicken topped with tomato sauce, green beans, melted cheese and turkey bacon. Wasn’t hard to say no, but I watched her eat it and for one glorious moment pretended it was me. Licking the left over peanut butter off the measuring spoon tonight was pretty sweet though
