The Behind The Bar series will be used to keep tracking of my drinking throughout the month. This post will be updated during the month of June 2020 as I have a night out or a cocktail at home.
- Panini’s – 6.1.2020
Miller Lite x 3
Took the boys to the driving range and then went to Panini’s for dinner on the patio with Scott and Jackson.
- Pittman’s – 6.2.2020
G’s birthday. Went next door to watch an outdoor movie (Sonic the Hedgehog).
- Home – 6.5.2020
Jack Daniel’s, Miller Lite x ?
Had some neighbors over for a fire and a low key evening of relaxing outside. Started off with a Jack on the rocks and then switched to Miller Lite and proceeded to drink a BUNCH of them. Good times.
- Grill – 6.6.2020
Miller / Bud Lite
After a long day at the ball field watching 14 play in a baseball tournament we laid low at home. Had a couple of drinks while making dinner.
- Mom & Dad’s – 6.7.2020
Perfect Manhattan x 2
Went to Mom & Dad’s to celebrate Mom’s birthday. Was the first time in FOREVER that we were able to get together for a proper family dinner. So nice to have some version of ‘normal’.
- Sirna’s Cafe – 6.10.2020
Jack Daniel’s x 2, Bud Light
Went to Sirna’s for a steak with the boys. They, naturally, didn’t have the steaks we went there for so I had a burger and wings instead.
- Dwayne’s House (Whiskey Tasting) – 6.12.2020
Bourbon / Rye / Whiskey
Went to Dwayne’s house for the inaugural bourbon tasting event. Bourbons sampled included: Bulliet Straight, Tom’s Foolery Rye Whiskey, Sheep Dog Peanut Butter, Elijah Craig Small Batch, Old Forester 1897, Revel Stoke Pecan Whiskey, Benchmark Old # 8, Woodford Reserve, Russel Reserve Private Barrell Selection
- Home – 6.13.2020
Miller Lite / Bud Light
Had some neighbors over and had a fire after a long day of baseball games. Beers on the patio = perfect.
- Home – 6..14.2020
Elijah Craig Small Batch x 2
Had a couple of drinks after another long day on the ball field. G’s team made it to the championship of the tourney!
- Home – 6.15.2020
Had a single beer with dinner. Really need to get my drinking (and more importantly eating) under control if I’m going to make any progress weight wise.
- Home – 6.16.2020
Elijah Craig Small Batch
Recorded a podcast with Pip… had to have a drink… right?
- Home – 6.17.2020
For no particular reason… a late night before bed drink to top off a stressful day.
NOTE: I hate to say it, but I didn’t do a great job tracking this month. That has been the case in the past as well, but this time I’m coming back to the post and I’m making this update.
Here’s what I can say… I drank a TON during June. Like… too much and too often. Through the first 17 days of the month I’d already drank 12 days. I’d say I AT LEAST drank that often for the remainder of the month. I can’t say I ever got ‘drunk’ with the exception of our summer solstice event when I drank like a fish. 12 out of 17 days is 70.5% of the time which would be 21 of 30 days. I have a feeling it might have been more so I’m going to say 22 out of 30 days for the month of June.
This isn’t about being an alcoholic… it’s about losing weight. Bottom line… I need to drink less and less often, at least for a while, if I’m going to lose any significant weight.
22 out of 30 days (73.33%)
How does this compare to previous years?
