OK, first a little bit of background: I did the V-diet 2.0 back in January 2009, and ended up losing 13 lbs of fat. I had to cut the diet short by a couple of days (think I lasted 24) due to having to travel internationally extensively. However, I did go from a 40" waist (I know, I know…) to a 35" waist, and went from 182 lbs to 169 lbs. Now, after 1.5 years of training, I’m up to 187 lbs with a 36" waist, and my lifts have gone up quite a bit. I do still have a bit of fat to lose though, so it’s time for Round 2.
Today is day 1. Made my measurements, and started drinking shakes. Basically the same as I remember it, although I had forgotten how nasty the shakes are. Made Shake 2 with ice and could barely choke it down–so for all future shakes I’m making them thin so they go down easier. Maybe in the future, unflavored low-carb Metabolic Drive might be in order? It’d probably taste like chalk but I think that would be preferable. Anyway, I stopped by McDonald’s and got the tastiest thing they have to offer (a drinking straw) and am using it with the rest of the day’s shakes. Today was also a workout day, nothing really to report there except I did the beginner program, and could barely do 40% of my RMs for each exercise in sets of 8. It’s kicking my ass so I must be doing it right
One question–I don’t yet have my HOT-ROX, they should come in the next few days. It won’t be a problem to do the v-diet a couple of days without them, will it? I plan on taking 2 a day for the remainder of the 4-week program and the 2-week transition period.
