Week 2 came, and I felt renewed. The HSM seemed to carry me through the next several days. I think I needed to realize that: 1. You will not die not eating solid food for an entire week 2. This diet WILL work
I kinda coasted through this week. Had another football party, but this time it wasn’t nearly as bad. The food looked good of course, but I wasn’t dying to have it. Went back to work on light duty (I am a police officer) and watched several of my coworkers eating fried this and that. I just drank my shakes, ignored the ridicule and rocked on.
You can’t have soft feelings in my work environment. You will get eaten alive. Workouts were rocking along. I’ve had to adjust due to my ankle injury, but still getting great results. I know I am not focusing much on the workouts in my posts and that is because those are some of the most enjoyable parts. They are nasty hard body building workouts (Which is not my typical type of workout) and I am having fun doing them again after several years.
Believe me, while you are on Velocity working out won’t be the hard part for you mentally. If you’re doing this diet, I would think you are like me and love throwing some weight around the gym. I try to focus on the parts that are going to be hard for potential V-Dieters to come.
Before I knew it, Day 12 HSM #2. Weigh in… 205 lbs! It’s falling off and I am seeing all my abs again! Talk about motivation! Tonight’s HSM: Cauliflower Crust Pizza. FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!! Ate 4 or 5 small pieces and was suprised how quickly I felt satisfied (Before hand I would eat an entire extra large meat lovers pizza myself!!) My girlfriend is a culinary wizard and we had to do some expiermenting with this one.
We made two pies, one from fresh cauliflower the other from frozen. She and I ate off of the fresh one and she has been snacking this week on the frozen one. Both seemed to hold up fine. Two suggestions: 1. Add some milled flax seed to your dough 2. After you cook the cauliflower, let it cool before processing it (will help it bind better)
One hiccup…I fell asleep and accidentally skipped my bedtime shake after my HSM. DO NOT make this mistake!! It will throw you completely off the next day and you will feel like it’s day 3 again!! I got back on track and am rocking along once again.
Today is Day 14, the half way point. All down hill from here. I have my Ortho appt tomorrow and will hopefully get the all clear to get back to my training. God’s Speed to all those getting started, and I hope my posts are of some help to you.
