The bodybuilding program I am currently doing is very, very hard but even that much more rewarding. The workouts have been extra tough for me. I am doing exercises I have either never done before or not done in a very long time. It's a very intense regimen, but I am already seeing amazing results. The definition in my calves has never been better for me. I feel more fit in general, and I have lost 10 lbs. so far!
Even though the workouts are tough, what's been the toughest thing for me is resisting foods I love that I cannot eat. For example, yesterday our family went to my parents' house for dinner. The menu was beef stroganoff with strawberries, oriental salad, rolls, and brownies and ice cream for dessert. I ate at the table with my seasoned talapia while everyone else was able to gorge down the really yummy stuff. No way I would have skipped dessert if I didn't hide downstairs with my brother and play some games. It was rough. The diet I am on right now is very strict and structured, which I believe will help me in the long run. I need that discipline.
Things are going great. I am excited to post week 2 pictures soon.
