This Sparked Me!

Those nice evenings when you want to have a few drinks, why not grab a bottle of water after you get your buzz on and take a nice long walk? Take a friend, significant other and just hit the road. You'll be surprised how long you can walk when you have the right amount of alcohol in you.

Of course it's not that easy if you don't have a place to walk but if you do walk it out. You may not LOSE weight over this but at least you'll burn some calories and not feel quite so guilty about it. Plus drinking makes people want to talk so you're not bored while walking.

    just make sure someone is with you is you decide to walk while drinking, the senses are not as sharp and you may need a second pair of sober eyes to keep you safe.

    Did you know that in some states you can get picked up for drunken walking Really It is called public intoxication

    For the public intoxication comment... yes some states are like that but fortunately we live in an area where as long as you aren't throwing bottles, yelling doing anything totally stupid then you'll be fine. Luckily the police leave civilized adults alone!

    When I used to only drink. I would play pool, darts or dance. So, I'd always do exercise while drinking. Had a lot of fun especially when hubby would dance w/ me. emoticon
