I sometimes have drinks at home on the weekend. Not a lot, just a few. Mostly it's friday nights when the wife and I go out I get about 2 beers. We had some friends over last weekend for a workout, sparring, and then beer and UFC... and not all the beer was drank.
I've been having one with my turkey burger when I get home all week I had the last one a few minutes ago. I liked having them, and a bottle of mic ultra isn't bad on calories really, but I'm glad they are gone.
I'm always happy to finish the last one - that means it's time to stock up! And by the time I reach the last one, I'm usually rather happy, in any case. The "last one," by the way, means the last of the scotch in the bottle, and I like big bottles. When I reach the end of one, I usually have a spare on hand, just in case I'm not done with the evening...
Of course, since my school closed 5 years ago, I'm not much involved with taekwondo or hapkido anymore, and I do miss it a lot. But drinking myself into a stupor every night seems to take the edge off the loss of my one form of healthy entertainment. You obviously have different priorities, and I find them somewhat inspiring. Good on you, lad!
I don't get a buzz from a bottle of beer. I guess I've just aquired a taste for the beer. I generally just drink a couple on Friday, or maybe one at social events. I do have a few when I go to the fights.
I still have a partial bottle of wine in the fridge, and part of a bottle of tanqueray in the cabinet. I only get into either on occassion.
I was just saying, if you are doing it to try to get a buzz, wine is a better calorie per buzz ratio and you get other benefits, too. Guinness is probably the best tasting of "light" caloric beer. I can't stand the ultra light beer, tastes like carbonated water.
In other news. I've been working out now 4-6 days a week (1-2 hours per day) for the past 3 months. I've lost 0 pounds, but gained a lot of strength and shrank in size. Haven't changed diet yet really, just upped protein intake and started eating something for breakfast.
Good to hear you are working out. I think everyone owes themselves at least 20 minutes a day, even if it's just going for a walk.

If you have shrank in size and gained strength then I think you are on the right track, depending on what you want.
I prefer the calorie counting. It takes a lot of work, but I found it's nice to have things in a direct math problem on paper. It always works exactly the way it's supposed to. If you want to lose weight, you can know exactly how much you will lose in how long with the calorie thing. However, you have to measure and weigh your stuff. It takes a lot of work at first.
If it moves, compile it
