I’ve used the V-Diet in the past and had decent results. Had to get off early last time because I ran out of money but now is a different situation. I’m back in the college dorms and still low on cash, but I don’t have the luxury of having enough time to play around with different workout and diet combinations. I’m going back to what I know works.
I’m 21, 224 lbs, around 22-25% body fat. I’m in the Marines and slated to deploy mid-May and my goal is to be back in my “right out of boot camp” shape. I also have a fitness test coming up mid-April and would like to top all my other scores.
I am starting the diet a little short handed, with a low supply of Metabolic Drive and generic fish oil. My resupply shipment is due in on Thursday so I will have to get by with what I have.
Made it all the way to dinner before running out of Metabolic Drive and had to switch over to another protein powder which has roughly the same nutritional value (but yes I know, lower quality ingredients and not to mention a shitty taste). Its much easier getting over the cravings having gone through this before.
I’ll be doing the beginner workout as I haven’t consistently been to the gym for awhile.
Made it to the gym around 10 pm.
I have what I feel are very weak legs for a person my size. I got through the squats without much trouble and the dumbbell presses took me a couple more sets. This was the first time I tried the outdoor section of the school gym and unbeknownst to me they closed an hour earlier then the rest of the facility. One of the gym employees came and kicked me out of there mid-set and that kind of threw off my rhythm.
Now into the much more crowded indoor section filled with 50 frat guys doing bicep curls in the mirror. I managed to squeeze onto one of the benches for the rows. I had a lot of trouble with the rows, not because of the lift itself but because the fatigue of my legs from the squats. It took me about 10 sets to get those done as it felt like my legs were going to collapse.
On the way to the mat for the planks, I saw some kid without a spotter about to kill himself bench pressing and ran over and spotted him. He awkwardly jumped up and shook my hand and introduced himself and scurried away.
I encountered the same problem with the planks. My legs were shot, which was typical after a long break from working out.
Walked home and got some Surge in my system then went out on a 3 mile NEPA walk.
One day down!
