After 2 shoulder surgeries in 2 years and some recent back troubles I’m coming back after a solid 2 month layoff on top of on again/off again training for the past 18 months.
For those past 2 lazy months rehabbing my back I got completely off track with diet. Instead of adjusting for a lack of activity I decided to eat whatever i wanted and got FAT!!! Also just straight up lost control. Constant cravings for very very bad “foods”. Chocolate. Hot pockets. Pizza rolls. If it was awful and easy to microwave I could not stop eating it. So the velocity diet, with its ability to stop cravings, is perfect.
The result? A loss of 10 lbs and a gain of 10%bf at a minimum. Wow, that sucks. I’ll get some gross photos up before the weekend.
I’ll probably hear about it but my comeback is Crossfit and (competetive) boxing. Add to that my job. I was on lighyt duty with the back thing and now I’ve come back to my normal position which includes 3-4 hours/day of physical activity. I wouldn’t call it hard although alot of the folks we hire quit because it’s “too hard”. Probably comparable to a very extended warmup. Plus much nicer weather so now the dog gets walked when I first wake up and again in the evening. +mowing grass, yard work, playing ball with the kiddos, etc. My oveerall activity level is ramping up considerably.
I actually started the diet Monday the 6th:
l arm-14/r arm-14 1/2
lower chest-40 1/2
waist @widest point-37 1/2
r leg-23/l leg-23
r calf-15/l calf-15
Pretty pathetic but it will improve
