Started the V-Diet yesterday. Would have started on Monday, but I had a luncheon for work that I had already committed to and ordered food for.
So pushed it back to Wednesday. I’ll get my stats (they’re on the home computer) and pics (maybe) up soon.
Basically, as you can tell from my handle, putting on muscle was always more of a problem for me than staying lean. Then the mid-20’s and a desk job showed up, and now suddenly I can’t fit into my pants any more. I decided it was time to nip the waistline swelling in the bud by doing the V-Diet.
Day 1 went well. It was my first experience with flax seeds (I got the “ground” not “milled” - slightly more processed and easily digestible, according to the lady at the health food store), and I feel like they made my breath awful. I had a terrible smell in my nose from the morning shake that lasted pretty much all day. Did day 1 of the intermediate workout.
Front Squat - 95 lb: 5/4/4/3/2/2
DB Bench Press - 52.5 lb: 5/5/5/5
Plank Hold (sub for ab wheel rollout): 25 sec, 30 sec
I work out at home, and 52.5 is the highest my dumbbells go up to. I think I may have to substitute barbell bench press next time.
For NEPA, I did a 35 minute walk with my dog. He’ll love my V-Dieting for sure, even if I don’t, since he’ll get some more walks out of it.
The shakes all went down fine, and I never got hungry all day. Tried strawberry MD for the first time - not a fan. I’ll have to be mixing 1 scoop of that with 1 scoop of chocolate if I want to finish that bottle.
Never took HOT-ROX before, so started with 1/day yesterday. Felt OK, if that goes well for the next few days, I’ll bump up to 2/day.
Day 2 - so far so good. About to have my lunch shake. The flaxseed breath/smell seems better today as well. Legs/butt very sore from squatting for the first time in a while.
