Since getting back from my ski trip to Park City Utah 2 days ago I have felt tighter in the ab area. I did not think I could lose weight snowboarding as I’m in good shape already from all of the P90X workouts and Insanity that I do. I guess I was wrong.
My girlfriend said it felt like I had dropped a size when she put her arms around me to give me a hug. I bought a pair of Gap Jeans a week before my trip and put them on today to see how they fit. They were really loose. When I bought them they were comfortable. Not tight, but not loose. Somebody could pants me right now if they wanted to as there would be no hips to grab onto.
I’m not sure on the amount of weight that was lost as I did not weigh myself before I went. What I do know is the pants you see me wearing in the photo did not have a inch gap before I left. What’s amazing is how I would lose weight or a pant size from what I was eating and drinking. Every morning that week I had scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, and sausage in them along with a English muffin and banana. This meal would hold me over through lunch and I’d have a Nature Valley Granola Bar on the mountain.
After skiing or snowboarding was over I’d eat a sandwich, chips, and whatever else was laying around our place. From there we would start consuming beer until 1 am. It was the 3.2% weak stuff as that’s Utah’s law. After partying for 4 hours we would head back to our place and cook up frozen pizzas with extra bacon or sausage and eat those while drinking more beer until 2am. This cycle was repeated for 7 days straight including two nights where we went to a brewery and I ate a Hamburger or Reuben with fries and a Double IPA.
I think I know how new military recruits lose so much weight when they go into basic training now. It does not matter what you eat as long as you are constantly moving. We skied or snowboarded almost 5 hours straight each day. I’ll have to eat and drink way more next time!
