Ready to belly up to the bar without the belly out? Check out these tips.
Happy Hour Fitness? It's always the same reaction.
"She can't talk about cocktails and nachos. She's a fitness coach and fitness coaches don't talk about cocktails and nachos. They just don't!"
I will agree, it's a bit unconventional. I mean, when was the last time your trainer gave you a "how to" guide to the bars? Never? I guess that's why I'm the renegade trainer. The way I see it, and proven through six years of bartending, people will go out to happy hours and someone's got to teach these poor little moths how to stay on track.
As the renegade fitness coach, my goal is to enlighten you with the best options for food and drinks. Shaving off calories here so you can splurge a little there. Although those skinny jeans you haven't worn in 10 years aren't necessarily waiting for you at the local watering hole, here are 10 tricks, tips and secrets to bellying up without bellying out.
Does Alcohol Have Calories? Darn it! Without adding the orange juice to your screwdriver or the Coke to your whiskey, your standard, 80 proof bar shot (1.5-2 oz of vodka, rum, tequila, whiskey, gin, etc.) has about 80 calories. Keep in mind that the sweeter the drink, the higher the calories. Although peppermint schnapps might momentarily diminish that dragon breath, it's a mini cup of sugar, weighing in at about 140 calories.

I like this article written by Jaime Jereb. She helps make us a little more aware about the calorie content of the drinks we ingest during happy hour. I think most people are aware of calories regarding food, but when it comes to drinking, somehow they don't end up counting those…as if they don't count. I know several people that eat very clean, but they drink 6 beers a night! This will go right to your belly. When you're looking at nutrition, be aware of everything you're ingesting.
