So a friend referred me to this diet and I figured I would give it a try as I can’t seem to lay off the junk food and I do have a very unhealthy eating lifestyle.
Weight: a whopping 174 lbs
updated with body stats
Waist @Belly Button:39.5" (ouch)
I haven’t taken any pictures yet, but will try and get some within the next few days.
I’m getting married on May 23rd and would like to look decent in my tux and on the beach for my honeymoon…the main reason however for doing this is that I want to finally shed my bad habits and adopt a healthy lifestyle - both with being active and with healthy food choices.
So day 1 went rather well. The chocolate shakes went down alright, and the beginner workout wasn’t bad, although I was sweating bullets once I was done. I got home that night and also went for about a 45mins walk with my fiancee in the pouring rain…it was chilly but it felt great.
Day 2 went well also. Walked to/from my dentist appointment rather than taking the car, for a total of 55mins worth of walking.
Day 3…thing are falling apart. The chocolate shakes (which are the ones I’ve been having mostly) were making me somewhat gag. I sucked it up and soldiered through my day. After work, I did my work out, but hadn’t timed my afternoon shake properly (I had it about 1.5 hours prior to working out) and ended up puking after the workout lol…yay me…I also only managed to suck down about half of the Surge Recovery as I thought I was going to throw up again.
I had to stop at the supermarket to get some lunch meats and pitas for tomorrow’s potluck lunch at work…which I won’t be participating in as I have my lovely shakes
Once I got home I went for a 30mins walk with my fiancee and figured I needed to come post here as I really feel like quitting. I ended up txt’ing my friend (who’s also the trainer at the gym at my office) telling him I want to quit, but he wasn’t available to “talk me off the ledge” so I figured I’d come here
At this point I’m like “f-this, I’ll just look real chubby on the beaches for my honeymoon…I’ll just try quitting all my bad habits on my own without the V-Diet”
So my fiancee seems to think what I’m doing is pointless and told me I should have started exercising months ago in prepration for the wedding but I told her that I wanted to do this in order to ‘quit cold turkey’ on my bad habits and start with a clean slate.
Not sure what I plan on doing…I REALLY want to continue this, and lose weight, feel great and know that I have kicked my bad habits to the curb and finally get to the healthy life that I’ve been trying to get to for the longest time but have failed at.
Well that’s that. I’m going to try and finish my last shake of the day and then head to bed, and hope that tomorrow is a better day and that I can keep going ‘just another day’ and keep saying that till day 28.
