With the famous and notorious spring break among young adults coming along this time around, you should learn the various things to avoid that may kill your fitness progress or the details that can salvage it.
Drink enough water
I know I know. You will mostly be drinking alcohol and you will find it hard to drink water when your belly is constantly filled with booze, that will dehydrate you even further. Your muscles are primarily composed of water and so are all of your organs and skin. Lacking water intake will directly affect how well your body is working, so you will not only give your muscles the water they need, but also keep you from stuffing your stomach with junk food.

Set a time where you forbid yourself from eating, since the food you will crave while on the influence will mostly not be healthy (skip this part if you carry healthy munchies on you at all times and actually eat them). If you know you will be out from 10pm to 5am, you don't need the calories McDonald's offers at 4 in the morning on top of all the empty calories found in your drinks.
Raving your muscles away
MDMA, speed, ecstasy and cocaine are all popular drugs present in events such as raves and house parties, I'm not teaching you something new. Anyhow, the usage of these recreational drugs, stimulants, will dehydrate you greatly, kill your appetite, increase your metabolism so your system will burn calories faster than usual, making your hard earned gains vaporize like a short and stinky fart. If you know you will be using any of those, eat during the day like you weren't going to eat at all during the party, and CARRY ABSURD QUANTITIES OF WATER.
Pick your poison
You know you are drinking to get wasted, might as well choose what you drink! Vodka, red wine, dark beers rum (without sweet cola) are all great examples of low fat / low carb drinks. The worst drinks to have are light beers, drinks mixed with other soft and sweetened drinks or energy drinks.
Oh, and don't forget to have fun! You aren't on Spring Break to count calories or calculate your macros, just follow these basic steps and practice safe sex ;)
