It was really cold and rainy the other day when hubby and I went grocery shopping, and since our Kroger has a Starbucks in it, we decided before we left the house that we were going to get some coffee to sip while we shopped (score 1 pt for making conscious decisions!). We got on the website and each picked out a drink from their "under 200 calorie" so we'd know what to order when we got there (score 1 pt for planning ahead!).
When we got there we ordered our awesome low fat drinks and I take a sip of mine...delicious... but I forgot to ask for no whip!!! I lamented this to my husband and got ready to take another sip because, well, I wanted it. I ordered it. I paid for it.
And then it hit me. I don't have to eat anything I don't want to. I didn't WANT the whipped cream, I wasn't going to eat it! I got a spoon from the barista and proceeded to scoop my whipped cream right into the trash before enjoying my drink. (score 1 pt for making a good decision in a pinch!).
May not seem like much, but I was pretty happy about it. Just those three choices saved me about 400 calories!
