The Hangover

JT’s mentioned bachelor party antics and nutrition before.  I was fortunate enough to have a great group of friends throw one for me this weekend.  The good, Lesley and I are still engaged.  The less good, celebrations like this play havoc with best laid nutritional plans and sleep schedules.  Needless to say, I’m not feeling like I could set any PRs right now.

This made me remember back to the nutrition talk at my Level I cert.  We were encouraged to start by trying to really clean up our diet for a month, then go on a one day binge (a la bachelor party).  The thought behind this is that you’ll feel so terrible post-binge that you’ll want to go right back to eating clean.  This is exactly how I feel right now.

I feel like my diet and training have been absolutely dialed in recently, and I knew I wasn’t going to like this post-celebration feeling, but this is a once in a lifetime experience (I’m only getting married once). In addition to being a lot of fun, and something that should definitely be enjoyed, events like this serve as a reminder to how much better you can feel, and I know I’m looking forward to getting right back to good, clean eating.

  1. good to be back home.

    snatch – 40kg (42kg x 1) – still a PR at x3
    WOD – 9:25 (40kg; yep, that’s right, Eric, using the big boy box now)

    nice to get in my goat work thru the actual WODs…

  2. Did this on my own, and like a dope I read the workout wrong. Did Hang Power Cleans instead of Power Cleans. Also the only box available to me is 26″

    WOD: 5:00

  3. Hang power snatch: 40kg (failed with 1 @ 45kg)

    Wod: 6:30 rx. The exact time I told Scrappy I would do it in right before the workout. At least one prediction was right this week.
