Did Nutrabio have their new EAA supplement there to get?  Hopefully Ghost will have the upcoming Swedish Fish flavored Amino's as well.  See anything new and cool?

Yeah the event was basically a promotion for their new eaa energy. I canít stress it enough how well they nailed the flavor.

I tried to get into the Ghost pop up store, but there was a long line. Dan (the owner) messaged me why I didnít simply ask for him to let me in. I donít feel comfortable getting special treatment. The Swedish fish flavor is legit though, they nailed it.

Imagine not grabbing a beer with a friend you haven't seen in almost 10 years?

I haven't had a beer in over 4 years, it's really not that hard to order a water, juice, milk, coffee, ginger beer, etc.

Well, I got into the O early yesterday with my fast pass. After 40 minutes, I was already over it. I avoided the VPX booths due to how obnoxious they are. I thought they were bad last year, but they seem to get worse every year.

You lasted 40 minutes before you were over it?!?!? I'm usually over it like walking to the entrance.  I remember a few of the booths were super duper obnoxious.  I think it was like Badass nutrition or Beast or something.  Just a bunch of girls dancing and a total giant douche on the microphone like "pumping up the crowd" shouting like "OH YEAH, GET SOME" or something like that.  Would have been terrible to have a booth right next to that disaster.

Going again today after I check out the Ghost pop-up shop. I'll stay until I'm bored. Honestly these places are just a big caffeine convention at the end of the day.

Yeah, that's the thing you gotta watch out for.  At the end of the day you're feeling totally buzzed and you realized it's the like 15 different PWO samples you tried in the past two hours...  Everything's got caffeine these days.

Sorry Tommy, milk is for babies... I'll have a beer with him :)

Lol I forgot about Badass, I don't think they are around anymore. It's pretty much VPX being absolutely obnoxious these days. They literally had 4  booths and loud music and dancing girls. I avoided it until the end and grabbed some drinks for myself.

As for caffeine, I stuck to simple energy drinks from GNC's new energy drink and Bang. The new GNC drink is really good. It'll probably be expensive with the profile, but the taste is on point. I'll probably review it myself.

I got to try out the protein cereal from MPA Supps. It's surprisingly good. It's crunchier/crispier than regular cereal, and doesn't really get soft, but it's a worthy substitute. I'd compare the texture to Quest protein chips. Not exactly but similarly. I'll def be buying more of these.

After 2 weeks of hell, and one week of fun, I am finally back and have a lot of work ahead of me. Only gained about 2.5lbs. Hopefully I'll be down to 187 by the end of next week.

I'm actually very surprised I only gained that much tbh. I went to town showing my friend the stuff they don't have over there. In N Out, Five Guys, Taco Bell, Poke-Burritos, Chipotle, Carls Jr, BWW, etc.

I'm just glad to be back in a routine, forgot my lunch today for work so I'm probably going to have to improvise.

I don't know how many times we've discussed all the Poke Burrito porn you have out in Cali....was a fun time when I was out there in April, had poke and poke burritos probably 7 times in 3 days when I was out there....

Surprisingly, there's probably the second best poke spots in the continental US here in Dallas. Not mad about it....
