Weight: 225lb. (which I’m totally convinced is bloat & water retention, because I was at 220 Thurs. or Fri. and I certainly didn’t overeat by 5lbs. in the three ensuing days, but whatever…)
I wrote my waist, chest, etc. measurements down after my shower this morning, but I’ll be damned if I can find the paper now (I’m at work. i may have left it at home, but I thought I put it in my bag to bring to work and post.
Ultimately, I’m not overly fussed about measurements OR weight, to be honest… I have a small fortune in 33" jeans and slim cut shirts that I want to wear again PLUS look & feel leaner than I did the last time I wore them a couple months ago. I’ve got “before” pics from this morning, but I’ll feel better about posting them when I have some “after” pics that don’t make me look like such a flabby, fat bastard.
I had my first shake this morning, and added the powder/mixtures to three other containers to bring to work. I picked up a little “on the go” blender from GNC on special ($15, check it out) and another in a shaker I picked up from Sprouts.
Not sure it’s necessary, but I’m going to the letter on everything, even going so far as to use the back of a butter knife to level off the scoops of the protein powder since the container calls for level scoops.
I feel energenic right now, but that could also be the HOT-ROX flowing through my system, too. I took my time drinking that shake (20 minutes), and it was delicious. I don’t feel super hungry right now (1:10 after the last sip), but I’m expecting to by 10:00 when I will have my next one.
Really I just feel deeply resolved to do this, and I’m really looking forward to feeling the results.
Looking forward to tonight’s workout. I skipped swimming this morning (will NEPA walk at noon) because I didn’t want to come back from my swim ravenous and only give myself a shake… i figured I would get through today and gauge my hunger and then try swimming tomorrow on a non-workout day to see how that goes before I see whether my body can handle swimming, eating/drinking nothing but shakes AND lifting weights at night. I don’t want to overdo it out of the gate.
Also, hopefully my MAG-10 Pulse Fast kit will ship today. I ordered it over the weekend, and I’m eager to do add that to the diet, too.
