Day 8 Velocity Diet: Intense workout, A secret disclosed, and dramatic pics

Besides the cucumber slip on day 2 I have been perfect on this diet. I have perfectly measured out every scoop and stuck to the plan. Why am I being so diligent? I am sure I could do some hybrid version of this diet and eat one meal a day etc… My degree is in nutrition so I am sure I could figure something else out as well. But I really want to follow this by the book. I can’t honestly say if this diet works unless I follow the plan as it is outlined even using other proteins etc.. Granted the I would rather use a protein that doesn’t have splenda but again stick the plan if I want to write about it.  I can’t call it the velocity diet if I am doing it my own way.

The Secret and near slip.

Ok, so many of my friends know this about me but it is horrible habit I have had since I was in high school. Something I always teased my mom about and must of inherited from her. I sleep eat.. Yeah I get up in the middle of the night and eat. I have been known to eat half a jar of peanut butter at night or half of a salmon.  Oh yeah that is another secret I truly am addicted to peanut butter. But the night thing is bad. Sometimes I don’t even remember eating at night until I see the peanut butter on my pillow the next morning. OK laugh out loud I know I would.  I have done it forever. Some people think its hormonal or blood sugar related or maybe a bit of both, but it has always been something I have done. Last night I woke up about an hour after I fell asleep in the mode to eat. Honestly I don’t remember getting to the fridge but I had peanut butter in my hands. I managed to put a dab on my finger, eat it and put the rest away. I have to say it was hard to do but I am glad I caught it.  I have put way too much work to screw this up.


Honestly the hunger thing was really good today. I still miss food but it is getting better. I haven’t been complaining as much and I have also found that drinking club soda throughout the day has really helped.

Today’s Workout

I kicked my butt today. I did double kettlebell complexes.

5-double kettlebell Snatches                                                                                                            5- double kettlebell Clean and presses                                                                                            5-double kettlebell Squats                                                                                                                  5-double kettlebell swings

Round 1 I used 16kg bells, round 2- 20kg, round 3 and 4 I used 24kgbells, round 5 and 6 20kg bells. The double 24kg bells (is 106pounds) They just about smoked me with the double snatches. It was a great workout though and I enjoyed the hell out of it. I am doing RKC level 2 in July so I need stay training strong.

Updated Pics.

If you didn’t see yesterdays post then I have the before’s posted and pics from yesterday. Today I weighed in at 186. I haven’t been there in over a year.  Today was dramatic even compared to yesterday! I promise to avoid any more shirtless pics for awhile but this is pretty cool. Now the strength gains still havent been tested but my double bell complex today was strong, especially because I haven’t done double bell complexes in awhile. Deadlift day next week will be a good insight to my strength!
