As I previously mentioned here, I had intended to go to Wilmington for baseball this weekend. That didn’t quite happen, but I did make it down on Saturday post-workout, once released from all responsibility.
Visiting Wilmington can be somewhat challenging, due to the allure of the 783 bars in town. We often end up at an awful bar between a women’s fitness studio and a furniture store, in the heart of suburbia. You’re more likely to find a bar in Wilmington than someone who graduated from UNCW in four years.
And it’s not just the existence bars. It’s getting hilariously drunk and turning into a walking mess, eating McDonald’s and losing 1.5 days of productivity with a headache.
While I won’t bore you with the details of my evening, which was fine, I decided that if I was going to booze, I had to log everything that I drank. This required the ability to remember, which I can proudly report that I maintained.
I had my first Pacifico around 8:15p, and finished a rum and Coke around 2:10a. A pretty ‘light’ night:
So, this is a light night. 81 carbs, 28 grams of fat. And nearly a whole day of calories. Even if I had eaten healthy all day (which I did not, because it was cheat day, and I had 1,100 calories of Truffle Mac from Noodles & Co.) it would have still ruined my goal.
I’ll take the victory that is having a controlled Wilmington evening, but this is definitely eye-opening, and explains exactly how I gained more than 1/3 my original weight my freshman year.
We’re back in the saddle today with Cardio Power and Resistance, which didn’t go so well last week. I’m expecting far better results, after making it through Pure Cardio alive. If I can do that, I can do anything. (Other than math.)
Aside from all of the victoriousness going down up in here, the biggest victory of the week will be if normal and sane folks across North Carolina vote against Amendment One.
If you’re undecided on which way you’re voting, take a gander at this. It will harm more than homosexual couples in loving relationships, who would eventually like to get married. (Which they can’t at the moment, because gay marriage is illegal in NC, so really, this amendment doesn’t accomplish much other than proving that we’re not progressing as a state.)
