Cutest thing EVA!

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

I went to Barnes and Noble yesterday to pick up a book that they were holding for me. I was kinda hungry at the time and was REALLY debating on getting a coffee from the starbucks they had in the store. I wanted a coffee but then again I didn't want a coffee cause I already new I wasnt going to chose healthier choice of a coffee from starbucks...

So I walked around Barnes and Noble, trying to avoid Starbucks lol. I went to the magazine section to pick up the Runner's World magazine and hopped on line to pick up my book and pay for the magazine. I was still debating with myself when I passed a little display that they had by the checkout line, "Dieting Tools." It had a bunch of those "Eat This Not That" books and there were also some calorie counter books, and so they had THIS on the table!

Isn't it adorable!! Its a small pretty looking calorie counter book. I love it because it doesn't look like a calorie counter lol It just looks like a regular little note book, its small enough to fit in any bag, and once again its cute!! I love cute things.. especially when it has to do with anything health wise and doesn't make me FEEL like I am on a diet lol. So I picked it up and instead of spending money on a coffee that would have been ridiculously high on calories, I got this calorie counter! I resisted the urge for a coffee cause I was so excited about my little purchase haha.

I am a bit spoiled with New York because calories are up everywhere! At restaurants, and fast food places, so I know what amount of calories I am about to take in, but my boyfriend, his family, and I go out to Pennsylvania a lot and so they don't have the calories up out there, and it becomes one of those things, for me, where its like "I don't see it so it wont hurt me" lol. But now I can bring this little calorie counter book with me when heading out to PA, or anywhere for that matter, so I know what amount of calories I am taking in and so I can make healthier decisions!
