Quick update - nutrition is still good, but needs to get better. I am getting more sleep and starting to workout more. My goal is to be committed to PBF by the end of this week. I just need to dive in head first.
The weekend was not perfect, but it was better than most. I even managed to get in a workout Sunday morning before getting buried in the rest of my day. Sprints tonight. Excited.
Today's #'s - I don't know. I'm only hopping on the scale and taking a waist measurement/BF% "pinch" on the 15th and last day of each month. No more neurotic daily weighing or measuring. It does nothing for me. I just need to focus on eating properly and maintaining my workouts on a week to week basis.
Alcohol is essentially sugar water. Your other nutrition can be perfectly primal, but a steady stream of booze is like drinking a couple 2 liters of CocaCola everyday. Or eating 3 Jimmy John's sandwiches worth of bread. Maybe instead of sitting on the couch until 1am watching some stupid show that doesn't matter while sipping on a carb-bomb micro brew you should go to bed, wake up refreshed and have enough energy to knockout a workout before work. Or keep doing what you're doing and continue to have your pants get tighter and wallet get slimmer buying expensive beers. It's your call dipshit.
Crunched some numbers: My former favorite microbrew has 20g of carbs per 12 fl.oz. serving. So the typical 3-4 average equates to roughly 60-80g of additional carbs per day. Damn. It effectively neutralizes any primal benefits gained from eating "clean". Oh, and they are also in the neighborhood of 130 calories each. Empty, worthless calories and excess carbs. Gross.
