Low-Cal Cocktails

Tonight, I got drunk and ate crap. However, I still managed to stay within my calories for the day. How did I do it? I planned ahead to work out and eat lightly before I got to the party (see the zillions of healthy recipes I post on here for some low-cal ideas), and was careful about what I drank. The secret: maximize the alcohol, minimize the calories. If I were really hardcore, I would drink straight shots, and nothing but. However, it’s kind of hard to do that at a company event when you’re trying not to look like …

Race Report: Emerald Nuts Midnight Run

I am probably one of the first bloggers to be able to publish a race report for 2008… yay! On New Year’s Eve I did the Emerald Nuts Midnight Run, a 4 mile race sponsored by the New York Road Runners club. The twist was, I did a version of Beer Mile and attempted to take a shot for each mile of the four mile race. Here’s a list of top 10 do’s and don’ts in case you have any inclination to try something similar. DO pick a liquor that is tasty. Straight vodka, though it has the advantage of …

(If you’re wondering what this has to do with fitness, the supposed topic of my blog, I promise the relevance will eventually become apparent) The open bar is quite a conundrum because you have to order you tickets weeks in advance. You check out …

Nutrition and Alcohol (Yes, I put those two words in the same title)

So, I broke my own advice and opened another tab last night. Bad, bad, bad. This bar had Woodchuck Cider, which is one of my favorites, but was on tap – so I got pint glasses (16 oz) instead of bottles (12 oz). As we all know thanks to Mindless Eating (if you haven’t read it, you MUST – I will post a review in the upcoming days that explains more), bigger serving sizes meant I drank more. A lot more. And to top it all off, this bar gave out free pizza with every drink. These were personal pizzas, …

An Original Diet Tip for Drinking

You would think that having just started this blog a few days ago, I’d have plenty to post about and wouldn’t yet start missing updates. Unfortunately, you would be wrong. Yesterday was a busy day and I just didn’t get around to posting during the day. I planned to make up for it at night by posting an awesome dinner. We’re talking gourmet here, people. I invited my friend Barry over with promises of deliciousness, and I even stopped at Whole Foods on the way home and bought all kinds of special ingredients. We made plans to meet up at …
