A healthy hangover

I probably still have enough alcohol in my blood to fail an alcohol test but it was worth it! Last week I watched most matches of the Euro Championship and for the finals me and a bunch of my friends wanted to watch it in an Italian restaurant where some of my friends used to work. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to drink but since it was Sunday and most of the guys had to work the next day I thought it was a good idea to have some wine during dinner and maybe a Limoncello afterwards. Spain was better so there wasn’t anything to celebrate but we still managed to down 5 bottles of Limoncello and nobody wanted to go home so we went out in town. I can only remember where we’ve been but that’s about it, I woke up with a huge hangover and a smile on my face so I think I had fun 🙂 

Drink once every 2/3 weeks is fine, unfortunately with a hangover like this I won’t be playing any poker this afternoon so I feel a bit guilty but on the other hand the Euro Championship is over now and I behaved pretty good the last two weeks. I’m not only skipping alcohol because of the effects the next day but also because I want to lose weight and I normally eat a lot of bad stuff when (or after) I drink. I didn’t eat any bad stuff this time and I actually lost weight compared to yesterday so I’m a happy man. I’ve exercised 6 out of 7 days last week and tonight I’m going to hit the gym again. I got a tennis bet with a buddy in which I only have to win 5 games in two sets and the last time we played I won 6-1, 7-5 so I’m pretty confident I’ll get there. He normally always wins but 5 games should be possible. I also cycled yesterday and discussed a possible trip to Alpe d’Huez at the end of August which I’m already pretty excited about!

I wanted to write a blog about poker this week but I can be pretty short about that. I played two good sessions in the afternoon and one terrible session Monday evening. This could be variance but also the competition at night is better than during the day. This means I’m going to try to play more poker during the day on Mon/Tue, to bad today isn’t really working out. Still I’m not worried because I’m really happy with my new schedule and yesterday was really a one-off. Last week I played plenty of poker as planned and tonight and tomorrow I should play some as well. I’m considering playing some of the MicroMillions II tournaments which starts the 12th but as you all know I’m not a big fan of tournaments so we will see. I’m also in Spain from the 13th till the 16th but might play some poker at the pool 🙂

Next week some more updates again, time for the Tour de France! 🙂
