Is beer while exercising a bad idea? Did it make me sick? Did I throw up? Could I even finish the workout?
Watch for yourself. This is the first video I've posted that I've edited. Nothing professional-quality, but I tried to cut all the boring parts and stick to the interesting stuff.
After the workout I was pretty much wiped out for the rest of the day. Did a bit of writing, but not enough. Ended the night with a Southern Tier Choklat (10% abv).
While I was researching this idea in December, I came across a man who tried it last Lent--and incredibly he lasted for 46 days living on just beer and water. His name is J.Wilson. I sent him a message on Facebook and he recently posted an open letter to me on Brewvana which featured some excellent, hard-won advice. He seems like a great guy, and I hope he gets in touch because I'd love to interview him, either here or on my Newbie's Guide to Publishing.
He wrote a book about his experience called Diary of a Part Time Monk. I haven't read it yet, because I want to go into this whole thing without preconceptions, but I did buy a copy and it's on my Kindle. If my journey is at all fascinating to you, I suggest getting his book--but don't spoil it for me.
