Halfway (to a three-way?)

Yesterday marked the halfway point of this fitness jam, so I thought I'd take some off-schedule measurements and do an update. Since starting, I have

- dropped 3" from my waist (navel-level), and an inch from my hips/belt waist/whatever you want to call it
- shed 9.4 lbs
- not skipped any workouts, and only had to shorten two cardio sessions and push back a couple of lifting days to later in one week
- only had three off-marker eating days

For kicks, I dug up a group post I made three years ago (holy crap), when I had some solid results using what was called the velocity diet. That pretty much entailed protein shakes/bars forever, with just a salad or something once a week, and a three-day, full-body workout program rather than the more concentrated lifting I'm doing now, and no real cardio regimen. While my results on that six-week odyssey were more dramatic (12.8 lbs lost), I set myself up for some huge failure for when I had to segue back to real food, and judging by my bicep measurements (which are the same for the end there as they are for me currently), this lifting program is far more effective. And, to be honest, I think I look a bit better now than I did wrapping up then. I'll probably post comparison pics of both final results, once I'm done with this.

Six and a half more weeks. Easy enough.
