So, on my way to the grocery store this a.m. to stock up on fruits, veggies, lowfat cheese, and some better bread choices, and I went through Starbucks. A little treat, I thought. I LOVE coffee and I usually get their Iced Latte, which is just espresso and milk, no sugar unless you ask for it. I get the Venti. I come home, put it into the tracker and dear God...240 calories!!!! I did some research, and the number is correct. I guess it's from the milk? They do use 2%, but I would never have guessed that it could pack such a punch. Lesson learned: look it up BEFORE you buy and consume. LOL.
However, I did have a big win: I made a wrong turn in my travels this morning, and ended up having to go through the McDonald's parking lot..twice, during breakfast hours. McDonald's breakfast is my BIGGEST weakness. I know, disgusting right? There have been times in my life where I had it almost every single morning for breakfast, for months at a time. I was also hungry! But I just kept moving.
So...not so good about the Sbucks..better about the McD's.
