Weight down to 207 (239 before starting VDiet)
Did my track work again this morning.
4 x 200 (I’ve shaved :04 seconds off my PR!)
8 x 100
10 min of 50-yarders
Biggest thing I’m amazed about is how I feel like my awful sweet tooth has been cured. Now I really look forward to my HSMs and don’t really have any desire to cheat. Sure it’s tough when there are donuts in teh breakroom here at work, but it’s so much easier to resist now.
Something hit me yesterday when I was reading about the Get Shredded program by Waterbury. He talked about how that intense program should really only be attempted once a year or even once every two years, after long periods of healthy eating and training, with slow steady progress. I was considering doing another VDiet this summer, but I think what would be better for me right now is just to try and establish a long term pattern of healthy food choices and training, and not really doing any ‘program’ per se. In the past I’ve been a classic yo-yo, going on and off ‘programs’ like Body for Life, BodyRX, or pick your fav ‘program’ from a muscle mag. I now (thanks to Chris and all of you) know and understand the principles of success, now I need to make it my lifestyle. Maybe next year I can do VDiet again, or even Get Shredded [if I can get my BF% down near 10%], but for now, it’s time to be a turtle – slow and steady progress, consistency.
