    I took the summer off from any serious weight loss. I was exercising like crazy and I could pretty much eat what I wanted. Now that winter is on the way (damn you old man winter) my level of activity will drop a bit. So my need to get rid of the sugars and the booze. Both are pretty bad health wise. And once January hits, I'll be dry for January. Heck, I may even leg it out until April like I did this year!
    Joe Rogan (love him or hate him) does a Sober October. Maybe we could get a Dappered group to do it? My wife and I are trying. Tough part for me is we are doing the Ragnar Bourbon Chase race in October and will be at a ton of distilleries....

    It's kind of crazy how immediate the effects of drinking are. If you stop for a month and then have 2-4 beers one night, you feel the effects right away and you can see them quickly too. Doesn't stop me from enjoy beer/wine/etc., but it is...sobering...to see the changes on your face/body.

    Well I'm travelling for the week. That means out with work colleagues after work. And trying to fit in/team comradery has also meant drinking each night. So much for my 'no mid week beer' plan. Oh, and there's been no physical activity too. This has not been a good week.

    Usually due to the dehydration. 2 beers even if taking time off shouldn’t have a drastic effect on anyone.

    I try to not drink M-F and then weekends have some. Hard to not drink during October cuz it’s one of the best beer months. Fall beers, Oktoberfest, Marzens, pumpkin etc.

    Kudos to you that do it. Best of luck. I need to get back on macro tracking. Injured ankle then injured wrist means a significant lack of training. Ugh.
