No real question here...I just wanted to post to go on the record that the torture has begun. Letting you all in on it should make it tougher for me to break down and grab a scone or a glass of wine!
Notice, however, that I was too uncertain of the whole process to post the first day...I wasn't sure I'd make it to the first workout!
Feeling good so far. In fact, it's much easier than the torture I endured dropping fat for the first Body For Life contest back in 1997 (thanks for nothing, TC!). I tried go low-cal while still including about 1/3 carbs, and the hunger from that was nearly unbearable.
I'm debating a minor variance in the routine...maybe single cheat P/C meal over the weekend (along with copious amounts of ALA). No real biochemical reason; I'm just using it as a mental crutch to get me through the rough spots ahead.
Wish me well...
