Enough with the Thanksgiving food already!

After a solid week of Thanksgiving, including a stay at my brothers house in up state New York that involved an endless 4 day meal, some unhealthy eating at work building up to the holiday, and our own feast yesterday and leftovers today for lunch, I've gained back 6-8 pounds of what I once thought of as a beer gut. At this point, it's more like a stuffing and gravy gut. ENOUGH! I'm tossing out the rest of the left overs...

But just to close the loop on this whole thing, the brown ales (Harpoon Brown Session Ale & Brooklyn Brewery's Brown Ale) went very well with our Thanksgiving meal. So well in fact that I enjoyed another Harpoon with my leftovers this afternoon, after my nearly thousand calorie workout at the gym. Even with that, I don't think I broke even with my battle of the bulge. I think I'll go for another run this evening, I gotta back back down to my "fighting weight" fast...

Wii + Beer + food = Good times
Thanks to Erik for bring the Wii over to the house last night in a successful attempt at adding a little post food-orgy fun and exercise. Speaking of Wii and beer... Last night I kept thinking, they should come out with a beer pong game for the Wii, and lo and behold, they have! How cool is this? "Ping Cup" (AKA Beer Pong) is part of "Game Party" which will be available on Nov 27th, but you can pre-order a copy today over at Amazon, beer not included

Don't worry, we didn't ruin our Thanksgiving meal with canned Bud, I just liked the image.

Things to look forward to over the next few days
I've got a lot of things I need to blog about this week and next week and they are as followed:
Stay tuned!!!
