Day 17 - WTF was I thinking?

Yesterday was awesome until a certain point. I moved for over 3 miles, I ate pretty well and then date night with friends happened.

The morning was good. I had my normal breakfast of 4 eggs and 4 pieces of bacon. This is the perfect amount of food for the morning. I may incorporate some veggies or a piece of fruit in this meal after this challenge for extra carb or a kick in the morning.

I had sprints day. I walked to the park, did 5 30 second sprints as hard as I can, then walked to the grocery store, then home. This was over 2 miles and I  just missed the rain so that was good. Tonight we had date night one day early. We were supposed to go see a band play at a park called Blues on the Green. This was canceled due to the large amount of rain we've gotten the passed few days so we decide to go eat and then to an arcade. My meal was at Papasito's again with their fajitas and veggies. On Wednesdays they have 2 for 1 fajitas night, so this rocked, more meat same price. We meet up with some friends and the first thing they want to do is buy me a drink. My first inclination is to say no and go on with it, but after some convincing by my friends and even my wife, I gave in.(and to credit my wife, she likes to have fun and wanted me to loosen up, I can' fault her for that) Stupid stupid stupid, but is 1 drink going to hurt? Probably not. So whatever. I gave in, got a famous Robb Wolf's Norcal Margarita. It's a drink with Tequila, lime juice and soda water. That's it. So 1 drink eh that didn't hurt anything. I ate like a mad man and enjoyed the time there. Before I knew it we were ready to hit the arcade. Well before, they order shots. Patron shots. I ended up doing that, and before I knew it I had 4 drinks. I got a decent buzz, but I felt guilty about it the whole time. I knew I shouldn't have been doing this. So I panicked! When I got home I took some glutamine, some vitamins, some magnesium etc. Well my dumbass forgot that these vitamins I take (orange triad) tend to be energy promoting. I didn't fall asleep until between 4 and 5 am. Woke up at 7:45 am. Needless to say I feel wrecked today. I had the alcohol guilts as we call them. Not because I did anything wrong or because I was drunk or anything like, but because I drank period. I hope this doesn't derail what i've done in the passed week, but it's a lesson to those who have an addictive personality. If you cannot stop at one, then dont have one. Don't give yourself that opportunity if it is going to mess up your goals.
