Taking my friend Hanh’s lead, I’ve decided to give up alcohol for the month of February. So far it hasn’t been that much of a problem. The Super Bowl was odd (maybe that’s why I got so upset with the commercials) and I’m a bit sad that I’m going to miss the Boca Raton Beer Meetup’s meeting at the new Funky Buddha, but all in all I’m not missing it too much.
I started training for triathlons back in June or so. Back then, weight started coming off, particularly as my races in October and November approached. Since then I’ve kept training, but the weight loss kind of stalled.
I’m not yet at a new low, but the trend for the last week or so is looking good. If beer is really what’s keeping me from dropping the rest of the weight, is this the end of beer for me? If this really is it, maybe I need a new strategy. Only better, more expensive beer so I’m forced to drink less of it? Only drink when I’m out? Michelob Ultra, god forbid?
