So after my race yesterday (sailboat racing), it was 4:30 in the afternoon, and all I had was a couple eggs in the morning. I was dying from the heat, lack of food, and thirsty. Figured I would have a quick hit of sugar from a soda in the fridge. I saw some "throwback mountain dew". Never had it. Grabbed it, and started drinking. Wow, that stuff was good. Better than the normal mountain dew I remember.
THEN, I looked at the back. 50 carbs... HOLY crap. That's normally my daily intake of carbs. And that was ONE... just one serving of soda. No wonder people can't lose weight.
Anyhow, I rarely have soda and this one tasted damn good. Too bad I won't have another for 3 months at this point, but I guess that's the point. You eat well, you can look good, and when the time comes, you can enjoy your treat.
Still at 188, (188.5 actually this morning) but I've re-added back in my heavy lifting routine. I've got 4 abs showing... Trying to get those last two to pop this month if I can.
