Friday Night Sabotage....

Why does it always seem like I sabotage myself on the weekends? With these!!!
Another 21 people were laid off today, and with that comes the gathering! There is another one 2 weeks from now for the next 13 people that are moving on. It really is kind of sad. After that, it has been guaranteed that no one else will be laid off until the end of may. 5 1/2 weeks left. 
I only had 2 Strawberry Margaritas. I also had my very own Chips and guacamole, and my very own Chicken Nachos. YIKES! Can you say OMG calorie fest?? So not good. So  today I (brace yourself) ate (ok are you sitting down?!?) 3070 calories OMG so not good. I need to find a new drink and mak better choices. The nachos were so good tho.
So tomorrow I am going to have to work out for 2 hours to make up for this. I am going to have to burn like 1500 calories Ugh!!
I don't know why I do this to myself. I only swam today, burned about 150 calories. I will see where I am in the morning. Pump the water to reduce the water retention and burn those calories.
Anyone out there have any low fat drink options when at a bar? Anyone have any after party recovery tactics? Like maybe straight liquids? Anything?!?
TGIF!! :) 


  1. I'm not much of a drinker, but I do tend to go a little crazy with food on the weekends. Through the week I can be perfect, but as soon as Friday hits all I can think about is Chinese food and chocolate.

  2. I bet they did taste good... only one thing to do now - move forward and feel the burn.
    my drink of choice at a bar is usually Bud Light- I used to drink all the "fluffy girly drinks" but then I learned that beer is a lot cheaper :)

  3. My best friend always says "I want to cry over a plate of nachos" and it makes me laugh. She's a skinny bitch though!! Haha! Nachos are a real problem for me too. They slip on down nice and. Red wine is my drink of choice since being banded but since the calories aren't listed on the bottle ... I assume there are none :) just kidding. I think it's about 100-150 cals a glass.

  4. Party recovery tactics -- hang over usually = dehydration. Drink plenty of water (even better if you do it before you go to bed) and try to drink a Gatorade or powerade. One of the small ones is good but make sure it's the real stuff with the sugar (electrolytes are cotransported with glucose so in order to actually get the electrolytes in that you're consuming, it needs to have the sugar with it).

    Hope you have a fabulous day!

  5. Oh my goodness that looks so yummy! I normally try and stick to gin and diet tonic, but then I love gin so that feels like a big treat anyway xxx

  6. All I can say is you're not alone....I also suck at also sounds pretty stressful with all those lay-offs. I do like the idea of nursing a light beer instead of a fru fru drink....cheaper and less calories.

  7. Oof, I hear you. It's so hard at those kinds of events, isn't it??

  8. I have always sucked at eating well on the weekends even when I don't drink... when I do drink it's even worse! Just dust your self off and move on. I hope you can find a beverage that you like that is better than margaritas. I tend to like the calorie laden darker, micro brewed beers. I wish I liked the light beers when I think about all the calories.
