Self-conscious in my swimsuit
Monday, February 23, 2009
Went swimming this morning for the first time in forever & felt self-conscious in my one-piece. I've got a long way to go before I can comfortably wear that bikini. June's going to be here before I know it & I haven't netted a loss since the start of the year.
I'm optimistic - I know I've got plenty of time to get where I want to be. My knee may have thrown a kink in the plans, but I'm creative. I can get my heart rate up on the bike & swimming's proving to be a challenge as well. Physical therapy starts in a couple weeks & I'm committed to that 100%.
DH asked me if I knew much about T-Nation's Velocity Diet; it's now on version 3.0. All I knew of it was that it was mostly shakes w/ a solid meal thrown in once a week. It's definitely a strict plan, but I trust the science behind it. It'll be a hefty chunk of change to buy the powders & shakes, plus I'm intimidated by the whole idea of it being so strict, so I'm not sure if I want to give it a shot.
Pros: only 28 days, simple meal plan, no calorie/gram counting, can yield awesome results when followed as directed, will reduce grocery bill
Cons: very strict meal plan, fork over $$$ up front
Will see. I may just feel the fear & do it anyway, b/c heck, I've got a bikini to wear!
