I have made an arguably bad decision, but I think it is good. I have decided that when it comes to alcohol, for the next six months, the only drink I will have is a Margarita. I know, it’s one of the highest calorie alcoholic beverages out there, but hear my reasons out:
1.) It’s my favorite alcoholic beverage (duh), not a good reason yet, but a reason.
2.) They are not as readily available as say, wine or beer. Not all bars serve them, people don’t ever have a few margaritas sitting around in their fridge, for instance. In general, they are harder to come by.
3.) They take some time to make (particularly the good ones). So, I’m not inclined to make them at home (where as popping the top on a beer or cider is fairly easy).
4.) They are cost prohibitive. A good margarita is $7 or more (less during Happy Hour, sure, but still…). So, when I am drinking, I’m not likely to order 5 of them (because I’m cheap!).
So, by selecting margaritas as my drink of choice, I will drink less often, have fewer drinks, and thus, save some calories. Argue away, decision is made though!
