My boss decided to take everyone out for margheritas and food at 3pm because he wanted to talk to us about recent upheavals at work. I was dreading being in a place with plates of food right in front of me. Having read about Dan John’s experience on the V-Diet in his book, “Never Let Go”, I ordered only soda water and lime. I was very surprised how quickly this countered any food lust. I kept my eyes off the table and made sure I was either looking at people I was talking to or my soda water and it worked like a charm. Thank you Dan John!
It also helped when I got to the gym that there were two girls taking turns on the declined bench next to me to do ‘exercise’; of course they spent most of their time talking instead of working out. Instead of snarling at them to STFU I directed the energy into moving the weights though I think I overdid it because by the time I got to the curls my biceps were already quite fatigued. Threw in a tabata protocol to finish off the workout and then staggered to my car feeling rather wiped out. Surge is a great recovery drink; minutes after getting it down me I felt fine.
Roll on day 4!
