I'm going to an annual Cinco De Mayo party and I need to come up with some good reasons why I'm not hitting the tequila and Jello shots as is the custom. Any advice on the surviving the this booze filled holiday without raising any eyebrows?

Tell them you're on a 30 day cleanse and you planned the timing of it without thinking about Cinqo de Mayo.

Lol! We are the masters of deceit! I have been using the medication excuse too! I was legitimately on stomach meds before I got pg--stopped them but plan to ask for something safe tomorrow when I see doc. I THINK my family and friends bought it. I love wine and it's not normal for me to refuse it.
I love the cleanse idea too!!

Cinco de Mayo is perfect timing for me because I have been craving Mexican food. I plan to go all out.

OOh the cleanse is a good one! I guess that means I have to stay away from the chimichangas and burritos though haha.

I always say..im saving my calories for x. I say I'm dieting and don't want the empty calories...say you have a bet at work of who can lose the most...so you're being good! Or carry around a mocktail. A marg without tequila looks no different! Have one at beginning of party, where no one saw you make it...carry it around the party so everyone sees...then pull the diet thing and say you already had one!
