Shred then beer. If it helps, I am enjoying a nice cold Heineken right now. Probably doesn’t help…

Drink the beer!  You don’t want skunky beer sitting around, do you?

Alternatively, work out WHILE drinking beer.  I find that alcohol makes exercise far more tolerable.

Drink the beer and then work out! Drinking beer will help relax your muscles 🙂

@MrsSl82be:  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on the damn elliptical flipping magazine pages with one hand and drinking with the other.

I say drink the beer… but only because I just got home with full intentions of going for a run but had some wine instead.  Oops.

I might be gullible, but do you guys really drink before and/or during working out?  Sometimes (or, TODAY) I come home from work and want a drink, then I think “damn, there goes working out for the day.”

Doesn’t it make you super dehydrated? Am I missing out on something grand?

When I was watching my weight for my wedding, I found it actually helped me a LOT mentally if I gave in to skipping excersize and having a beer if I was really craving it. I would compensate and eat less dinner and actually end up losing a few ounces as a result. That may sound crazy, but it worked! Then since I took a day off, I would be all revved up to go running the next day.

I just feel a lot more motivated when I have a few drinks.  Like today; I worked a half day because I have to work on Saturday, so I had a couple screwdrivers then proceeded to:

  • teach Daisy a new trick
  • do 2 loads of laundry
  • do P90X power yoga
  • make guacamole

Whereas on a normal day after work, I flop on the couch and play Call of Duty for a few hours, then consider the rest of the day a lost cause and do nothing.

@PitBulLover: is that the trick? Hmm… I might be able to start working out after all! LOL
