@ Triskele, dang, you are so right! 2 more weeks of transition, what, with meals everyday? Ok, I'll do it.
V Burn today: 18:55! Taking names now.
Funny, an hour ago, I was sitting on couch on Saturday, all sunny and warm out, thinking gym was last place I wanted to be. I said, well, I'll just put on shorts, etc...next thing I know I'm at the gym, now I'm feeling great. Sometimes it is just the first small step that is the hardest.
@ggold005- Glad you are enjoying blog. Reading others really has been great for me too.
Yes, so glad, so worth it. I love just following the plan, ignoring and forgetting about food (except for the day before HSM meal, when I spend hours on internet planning menu Check out http://stuffimakemyhusband.blo... for great ideas. Plus HSM forum here on T-Nation is good.
Glad? I lost pounds of fat, inches of my belly, which is incredibly motivating. Most important, I have regained control of my health (including eating, drinking habits) and am back on the road to fitness.
Weigh in & Measurements
Weight: 192.5 lbs - loss of 15.5 from start of 208.
Waist: 38.5" - loss of 4" from start of 42.5"
Upper leg (thigh) L- 23.5" - loss of 1.75"
Upper leg R - 24" - loss of 2.5"
28 days ago I wrote my goal was to lose 16 lbs and 5" off waist, so this was really close. Very happy with results.
You can see from photos I have a ways to go, but what a great start, thanks to the Velocity Diet plan.
Looking at those photos again, even my hair is thinner.
Transition Week 2
Shakes and HSMs. Thinking about post V Diet workout plan for a while now. Lots of great advice here on T Nation. I'm going with Stronglifts 5x5.
I like it because it is simple, straightforward, designed for success. You start light (bar only), and increase weight 5 lbs/day. Squats increase 10 lbs. Nutrition is pure HSM. Can't wait to start and build on my VDiet success.
can't go wrong with the staples - linear progression and the big lifts. for the first few weeks, don't be afraid to up the reps or sets just to get your form dialed in. sounds like a great plan hooner!
