This is a story from a while ago but I wanted to make sure I shared it here on the blog. As you can see from the number, weight wise I’m going pretty good. I’ve been dealing with some sickness so I haven’t been eating all that bad with the exception of this morning when I stopped for McDonald’s for the first time all month I believe. Also, if you check out Behind the Bar for this month you’ll see I’m not drinking all the much this month (at least through this writing) which is also helping.
Speaking of drinking…
I mentioned it in my Behind the Bar recap for December, but December 18th was a bad night. We had our department Christmas party with an open bar. I’m glad to say that I didn’t do anything stupid but ended up taking my first ever Uber trip home. The evening started out with a couple of Christmas Ales with dinner (on an empty stomach). After that I had 1 or 2 Jack Daniel’s on the rocks. At this point I knew I should slow down as I had to get home… And then the shots started.
A co-worker got a round of shots, and then another. Before I knew it, I was 3 shots deep. I’d stopped drinking (other than the shots) and started pounding water. I stuck around for a good hour or so and made my way to my car. It didn’t take long before I figured out I shouldn’t be driving. Called an Uber and made my way home safe and sound. GREAT service.
