Day 9: (Test of self control)
Workout went well today I up’d my weights 40lbs on the Romanian dead lift. Up’d 30lbs on the Lat Pull down and 15lbs up ea. on the Shoulder press W/dumbbells.
It was the most challenging day for this:
My old drinking buddy came to town for a visit tonight. We used to leave a trail of demolished hotel rooms and dead hookers back in the day. Usually when we meet up and first make eye contact I swear I can hear a rattlesnake rattle followed by the theme song to The good, Bad and the ugly. Ya ee ya ee yaaaa… wah wah waaahhhh just before one of us orders the shots of Jager.
The rest of the night usually plays out like “The Hangover” if you have seen that movie yet (Funny as hell BTW). We played it cool (No drinks) but it was hard seeing him have a beer and I could not join. No big deal… Then his food comes out (Mind you we are in my favorite steak and burgers place). He gets one of the burgers that have little bits of sausage in the patty cooked over the pit with pepper jack cheese and still pink in the middle.
The smell was intoxicating but that was not it. This place serves the BEST Buffalo wings I ever had and he had a 10pc order sitting right in the middle of the table. Ok I am Pavlov’s dog at this point. I tried to focus on my glass of water with a lemon in it but it was hard. He didn’t even finish either plate that bastard!. A few times while we were talking I caught myself unconsciously reaching toward the plate of wings. I know I did it to myself. He offered to eat then come see me later but I insisted that I have no urges to eat outside my diet. Faaaahk… Man I can be a dick to myself sometimes.
Well, I didn’t cave and I feel good. I was surprised that it affected me that much. I am not someone that freaks over food. I’m over weight because I usually don’t eat during the day then over eats at night after a few beers. Anyway… Donâ??t try what I did at home. I’m a professional… Idiot.
Day 10 here I come.
