Velocity Day 1
I’m an endurance runner that has about ten pounds to lose. Just came off of a two year training block and need to nurse some tendon issues in my feet. Figured that in this downtime, I’d do my rehab and drop some weight before my build begins again for my Boston qualifier in early to mid 2024.
Because I run so much, I’ve been able to keep weight gain away while not eating as well as I should. The goal here is a reset.
Weighed in at 177, it’s high, mostly due to a monster Mexican food mess I had for dinner yesterday. That water weight will drop quickly.
Kicked off at 8:00 AM with my first Metabolic Drive ever, added Superfood, and took all the included pills. Tastes fine, but I need to sort out the amount of water.
It’s 11:15 AM and I’m starting to feel the hunger grumble. Waiting until noon for shake two.
Shake two and three were fine. Walked the dog for an hour.
Dinner at 6:00 PM consisted of lemon chicken breast, potato, broiled Brussels sprouts, and a side salad. Enjoyed some salty flavors.
It’s 8:00 PM and I have a monster headache. I’ve been such high carb, that dropping to, what for me, is low carb (under 100g) tends to give me flu-like symptoms for a couple days. Ready to get past that.
One of the more difficult parts of the diet is the extra sleep assignment. Laid down at 10:00 PM, was very restless through the night. Woke up before 7:00 AM without an alarm. Garmin watch says 8:10 hours of sleep.
