1700+ alcohol calories

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

So the downfall of having a tolerance is finding out the hard way you can ingest over a day's worth of calories in alcohol in one night.

That's right! Over 1700 calories in alcoholic beverage in me last night. All in about 5 hours! It started with my craving for Pina Coladas! Maybe next time I will make them with fresh coconut instead of Cream of Coconut... I at least used fresh pineapple. So then I moved on to a basic smoothie idea - Frozen fruit, peach nectar, vodka (mainly cuz I ran out of ice when I made the first batch).... and because I made it with fruit, it's healthy right? emoticon

SO I'm writing this today to own up. I normally start drinking and don't care, forget it happened, and definitely don't look to see how many calories I blew! Today I logged them, said "well lets not do that again!", and posted for the world to see. Every other time I have fallen off the diet wagon by pretending crap like this didn't happen. Today I'm changing that. I will not fall off because of one night. I will simply accept and move on.

Though this morning I did need a bagel and butter to absorb what was left in me emoticon

Ok... so now we look at why... why did I feel the need to get obliterated last night? Well, it's because I live here - in this lovely place others call heaven and I call an ant hill. And that's a compliment! I'm not going to sit here and slander my husband (though I have some choice words), lets just say he doesn't understand the logic of moving to a place that doesn't make me a horrible, miserable, person, AND that we can actually afford. Like seriously buy a small house (still bigger than the one we are in) outright and bank money for a couple years so that we can move anywhere we want. I guess, instead, it makes more sense to stay on a both physical and mental death trap to see if the market improves in a couple years.... and then.... who knows! Buy another house on the same death trap? of course. because god forbid we actually step outside our comfort zone and try something new.

Was that slander? Well you get my point. I'm miserable so I drank. a lot. That's a good habit to continue, right?
