Only 2 weeks in and I was put to the ultimate test… sticking to my diet while spending an entire weekend on the boat. So for those of you that don’t know me, there is no greater happiness for me than to be on a boat, on the water, with a drink in my hand. This is an absolute trifecta so missing any one of these pieces… collapse. Although if I’m honest this theory had yet to be tested so it was pure conjecture.
So one thing I have yet to mention and explain it’s place in this journey… something very near and dear to me… alcohol. I am allowed to drink 1 – 2 days/week. However I have to take all calories consumed in alcohol, divide by 4, and subtract that from the carbs for the day. Well by the time I eat the required carbs for breakfast and my pre and post workout it really doesn’t allow much for alcohol consumption. So to maximize my intake I worked out in the morning so that my breakfast and pre workout meal were one in the same and only consumed protein and fat the rest of the day (yes… I was desperate). Even with all of this effort that only left me with 6oz of vodka. So the plan was to wait until the end of the day when I was drained by the sun and drink it all at once hoping for a decent buzz. Yeah… no such luck. I thought it was going to hit me like a Mack truck since minutes after drinking it I started to feel tingly but unfortunately that was as far as it went. Sad story! Needless to say the next day I went back to my normal diet and said “screw it!”. I guess on the bright side by the end of this my tolerance is going to be super low and my bar tabs will drop dramatically! #fitnessgoals #savingmoney
PS- Apparently the trifecta wasn’t as strong as I thought it was. I still had an absolute blast and was stone cold sober the entire time. I guess it’s really just a bifecta… yup… making up words now. I do what I want!
