Okay, I’m a little hesitant about doing a log on here but I’m going to try it out.
I started the diet yesterday. This is actually the third time on the diet. The first time was 2 years ago. I had amazing results, I went from 169 lbs to 145 lbs. I can’t remember how many inches I lost, but it totally transformed my body. Along with that, I started to eat foods I hated before. I wouldn’t eat veggies… at all! I came out of the diet craving salad. I ate potatoes, squash, and cooked carrots. Things I would litterally gag on before. I kept the weight off for a year, and tried the diet again last Jan. I got a week into it and gave up. I don’t think I had the drive. I set out only wanting to lose 10 lbs. because I’d only gained about 5 lbs in that full year. I would taste food here and there and eventually just stopped. I also didn’t take the supplements. So I’m not even going to count that time. Since then I’ve gained a good bit of weight back, and lost most all of the muscle.
So my reasons for doing this diet again are to gain muscle, drop fat and eat more foods that I’m supposed to.
So here are my stats as of yesterday’s weigh in
I’m 5’-8" tall (female)
Neck 12 1/4"
Shoulders 41 1/2"
Ribs 31 1/2"
Chest 37 3/4"
Waist 29 1/4"
Hips 37 1/2"
L Upper leg 25 1/4"
R Upper Leg 25 1/4"
L Calf 15 1/2"
R Calf 15 1/2"
L Arm 12 1/4"
R Arm 12 1/4"
I’ve followed the diet exactly except for the flax seed so far. I haven’t had the chance to get to the store to get any, but I plan on doing that tomorrow. I’m also only doing one HOT-ROX in the morning and one in the afternoon, rather than 2 each time. I’m rather sensitive to stimulants so I have to be careful.
I find that by dividing one shake into 2 servings helps me out. That way I’m drinking something every hour. I also blend the shakes with a lot of ice. I can’t really get the shakes down when they’re just shaken.
I don’t really remember the headaches being this bad the first time, but I’m sure that will go away, just like the stomach discomfort will.
I’m starting the workouts at the intermediate level. Today was day one of the workouts, and I finished it with 45 min of walking on the treadmill.
