eating out without blowing your weight loss -drinking

So you wanna eat out and drink huh?  Obviously, I'll tell you that you should avoid alcohol while dieting...and you should.  But if you 're out and that's your splurge...here's a few tips to avoid totally blowing your healthy eating plan.
-Avoid fruity drinks and frozen drinks...no pina coladas, margheritas, etc. -They have a lot of sugar.
-Ounce for ounce a shot is actually your best choice...one does the trick and it's not as many calories as most mixed drinks.
-Lite beer or wine is a decent bet (lol one glass only).
-Gotta have the mixed drink?  rum and diet coke, vodka and tonic, martini...better choices than anything with juice because of the sugar.
Of course , always drink responsibly and have fun (but not too much fun...that scale beckons:).


Today's workout: weights (biceps, triceps, abs, shoulders), Insanity the Asylum "overtime" dvd, 1 hour of zumba ( my friend's class that I never get to ..but had a personal day today:)
