    If you go in accepting there'll be dog in it, it's way more palatable.

    Supposed to meet a girl for drinks tomorrow night, she really wants to go to this mexican place for happy hour margaritas. Trying to figure out the best way to indulge in a few margaritas without going overboard calorie-wise tomorrow. Tomorrow was going to be a rest day but should probably get some cardio in before work tomorrow if I'm going to have sugary margaritas. Normally I'd just say fuck it but I'm going on a cruise next week and know it'll be 4 days of gluttony.

    Knowing nothing about you, I'd say don't pass up the date. If anything, do what you can do clean up one of those cruise days.

    I'm in a bit of similar situation myself. I kind of have a standing date with this girl I'm seeing Saturday nights for what turns into a night of many drinks. I've been recomping since January and the results have been a bit slow. My weekends aren't the total mess they once were, but I know they are probably slowing down my fat loss right now. Trying to figure out how to swing a night with drinking involved with the minimal amount of damage.

    drink clear liquor straight up, don't hit up the burger joint afterwards, there you go

    how enjoyable that is depends totally on you but will get the job done in the least amount of calories. Not that it really matters though, the main point is to avoid eating while on teh sauce. IIRC ethanol gets priority treatment by your body so everything you do eat gets stored.

    Thankfully, eating after boozing hasn't been an issue for me at all lately, since I've had other things to take care of at the end of these nights. :)

    Went off the posture routine back to my previous lifting prog, still on the new diet though. Gonna finish out this cut and then go on to the posture shit before bulking.

    I always default on some whisky or bourbon neat or on the rocks when trying to watch calories. Another option is to just get a skinny margarita. That cuts the calories down to about a light beer.

    If any of you are really worried about having one additional day with excess calories (ON A DATE)..

    you've got more problems than you think.

    I was trying to err on the side of not being an asshole for once, but now that you mention it, yes.

    I just figured they were all full of sugar. Now for the :hide: , what's the comp of said real margarita? Just tequilla and lime juice chilled?



    I think you're right and typically I wouldn't, I'd just handle it the few days after, but like I said with my vacation in a few days I wanted to try to keep things as clean as possible up until then to not ruin progress. :embar: I'll stop being a puss now.:satisfied:

    Back on squats, feeling a bit sore in the groin but doesnt seem like bad pain, cautiously optimistic. What do folks here think about Rippetoe's low bar back squat videos? I am trying to refine my form and wondering if his instruction is a good starting point?

    Rippetoe is solid early instruction for anyone. You may modify things over time but there's probably no good reason not to read him.
