I used to be in good shape, before life decided to try kill me off! Last 2.5 years have been a hellscape of illness, unexpected side effects, more illness (and some severe depression) etc. Finally reached remission stage, to where life is no longer trying to remove me…so beginning to put my life back together.
Posting today, as I am now halfway to my goal!! Thank you to whoever sent out the Velocity Diet v4 email on 28th July…I was eating 100g cheese & cooked turkey; swapped over to to slowly ramping up the nutrition for this plan!
Masterplan Part 1:
Stage 1 - Week 1 and 2: Learning to walk a normal amount. 8 stairs was enough to completely wind me and send me lying down. This is why walking features so heavily in the first few weeks.
Stage 2 - Week 3 to 6: Walk/jog alot. This was done in the apartment, basically doing laps around the small space or walking in the same spot. Yes, it is insanely mind numbingly boring…but again gave me some general fitness. My feet complain /alot/ however, I get woken up mid sleep with the pain.
Masterplan Part 2:
Stage 3: Week 7 and 8: Begin gym again…and slowly ramp up using Novice 5*5 program.
Stage 4: Week 9 to 16: Ramp up gym work & cardio work.
Masterplan Part 3:
Stage 5: Week 17 - apply for jobs (life insurance payout is letting me stay off work).
Stage 6: Continue adding more normal everyday life things.
Overall Tracking Google Docs Link
I update the Google Docs link every Friday with new measurements.
Will add sleep as of this week; my body is waking me up every few hours to scream about pain…mostly soles of my feet or legs. Massive re-adjustment period that I do not wish on anyone. Z12 helps ALOT with falling back to sleep however (added since Monday)
Been adding food/shakes as I move away from being 40%-50% fat…to more lean body mass. Calories dropped last week as weightloss stopped. Will need to give up the low calorie sauce soon
** Calculation error for calories…thought I was eating more than I was (200 calories off). Fixed from this week, with another shake/flameout.
I upgraded the Misc Cucurmin & ZMA with I-Well and Elite Minerals. Given they provide the items + extra benefits. (Also as of Monday via biotest uk)
On the left 314lb me… on the right 259lb me.
