Don't Drink the Milkshake!

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I'm in the middle of moving so I've been working really hard packing and moving boxes. I saw a recipe for a Mint Oreo Milkshake and thought, "Hm, I deserve a little treat for all the hard work." So I bought the ingredients, made the milkshake, drank it, and sent the extra ingredients home with my mother so I wouldn't be tempted to eat more cookies. So I did good, right?

Wrong. I just calculated that milkshake on the nutrition page: 1,000 calories. Yikes! emoticon Now I know and I won't do that again anytime soon.

Being fair, though, the fitness tracker says I used up about 2,000 calories moving, so I should still be ahead for the day. emoticon

    Wow, I knew some shakes were high but that is out of here. Good for you for realizing what it was and of course for working off the excess!
