First Training Log on T-Nation


#1

I started the V-Diet on Sunday of last week. I thought I would keep a log on here so that I could easily look back and see what I have done.

I started the V-Diet because I was eating pretty poorly since I started back school. I was not eating a lot and when I did eat it was not always the best. I figured the v-diet would help me get back on track and get back the discipline I used to have because it was an easy enough diet to prepare. I also wanted to lose some body fat around my lower stomach, chest, and love handle areas. I am a bit soft around the edges.

Here are my stats:

measurements in inches:
neck - 14
chest - 39
arm L and R - 13
stomach - 33
upper leg - L and R - 23.5

Some of my recent lifts before the v-diet:
Squat - 2x3x245, 1x1x245 (9/5/2011)
press - 3x3x125 (9/5/2011)
dead - 1x3x305 (9/7/2011)
bench - 3x4x205 (9/8/2011)
clean - 3x5x165, 2x5x155 (9/6/2011)

Weight when I started: 165
height: 5'9

I decided to modify the V-Diet so I suppose it is no longer the V-Diet. I was getting sick of the drinks and every time I thought about it I want to throw up. I decided to do this:

HOT-ROX in the morning and afternoon

Meal one and four:

Metabolic Drive Low-Carb Protein - 1 scoops
Biotest Superfood - 2 scoops
3 eggs with about 1/4 of an onion and half a bell pepper chopped

Meal two:

Metabolic Drive Low-Carb Protein - 2 scoops

Meal 3

Metabolic Drive Low-Carb Protein - 1 scoop

Meal 5

Metabolic Drive Low-Carb Protein - 2 scoops
Natural almond butter - 210 calories

Supplements with each meal

Flameout EPA/DHA - 1 softgel
Fiber Choice sugar free (optional) - 1 tablet

Recovery Drink

SURGE Recovery - 2 scoops

The three eggs gives about the same protein (18g) and fat (12 g) grams that I was getting from the other scoop of met drive and flax seed so the calories are about the same.

Everyday I take HOT-ROX when i wake up in the morning and then I go for about a one mile walk.

Today the v challenge:

9/24/2011

I did the v challenge for 2 circuits in 9 minutes. I am really out of shape; I havent done anything like that since the summer when I was doing tire pulls and flips and sprints and stuff. I may try to do the challenge again during the week.
