I switched up the drinks that I drink. Instead of margaritas with tons of sugar or beer with crazy amounts of calories, I get a rum and coke made with diet coke. Or a vodka with sprite, made with diet sprite. This works well for me when I want a drink, but don't want to have just a glass of wine. Hope that helps some.

I have learned not to tolerate the weekly resets for one night of fun, and have tried to drop booze out of the equation altogether. If I'm going to fold, i might have a tequila/diet coke or whatever. Beer can no longer be an option. But even at that, two/three drinks can easily be 500 calories with a generous bartender.

I try to tell myself that drinking calories isn't worth it, and just do my best to avoid booze altogether.

On the plus, i don't binge eat out of drunk-hunger if i'm not drinking, and should i decide to, it won't take 10 beers to get a buzz anymore after a few months :) It's a win win, haha.

yeah that does sound yummy!

It is just hard to face that this is another thing that will have to be tamed down. A night of partying is not worth a week of good habits going down the drain.... ugh face the facts right....

No matter what it always seems I pay for a night out. But no that doesn't stop me. I have slowed down some. I tend to drink cherry vodka and diet Dr Pepper. Very yummy and only the calories of the vodka. Stay away from drinks mixed with juice, they add up fast. I always try to make sure I eat healthy and get in a workout earlier in the day if I know I am headed out that night.

Ok so I know I'm not the only 20 something that goes out on the weekends, I want to know if buckling down on ur nutrition stops you from going out & if not what do you do differently than before?

I typically go out every Friday and most times dance my a** off so at least I get a good workout!

I know to stay away from lots of things & the lowest calorie option I know of is a Vodka & Club Soda but I HATE club soda, so I choose tonic water, It's not calorie free but it's not suragy like a soda or juice, and I'm not about to do straight shots of vodka lol that would be a baaad thing lol.

What's ur strategy?
