So I went to a small gathering the other day. I had a small dinner before I went but I suppose it was too small because I was really hungry when I got there. I was pretty good on the food though (at least better than I usually am). I had some chips with avocado dip, one hot wing, and two cupcakes. Now this may seem like a lot but it's a lot better than I usually do at parties. Plus I had only had 800 calories that day so I still had between 500 and 800 calories to go. What really killed me though were the mojitos. I only had two 6 oz drinks but when I logged them in when I got home they reached a total of almost 600 calories. Plus alcohol has 7 calories per gram so it's almost as bad as fat. I decided then that I was giving up alcohol. It just isn't worth sabotaging my diet for something I'm not even that crazy about. I don't much like the taste and those two little cups weren't even enough to get me buzzed. I would hate to see the calories in a long island iced tea. If I'm going to go over my calorie intake once in a while I would much rather it be from something I'm going to enjoy.
