Day 4 - VDiet
Still going strong. Did a 30 minute walk and had my 2nd training session this morning. I’m doing the beginner training. It just doesn’t seem like enough and I get tempted to do more weight training but from what I’ve read on this site… just follow the program. I use to exercise every morning consistently but due to a new job position I took on last year, I found it very hard to find time for exercise since my days started early and ended late. I sit in front of a computer all day so between that and turning to comfort foods & TV at night, I gained 20lbs in the last year after being the same weight for years.
Drilling down one day on the Amazon site a few weeks ago… I came across Dan John’s book - Never Let Go. It was his book and his motivation that brought me here. So glad to be headed in the right direction and have that feeling of control back in my life. As Dan states about the Velocity Diet… “I like the discipline. I liked the jumpstart it would give me on my other goals”.
As far as finding time for exercise… still the same old job, just knew that I had to do something different. Dan writes in his book about whittling down your life to make things happen. He wrote - “Whittle that TV habit and the time will appear for training”. That hit home for me…I would finish work late… and then just want to chill in front of the TV and munch out. That led to me getting up later than planned since I went to bed late and waking up with a sugar/carb hangover. Now I’ve cut out most of the TV, no more munching out. I am getting up early leaving me time to walk and train before work. Great way to start the day !
