Early morning irritation...

Not serious, but just bugging me...

So, I've been doing really well with the new eating better and working out plan (55 pounds gone so far!) and thought maybe I'd treat myself to a donut from Dunkin' Donuts today. First, though, I figured I would go to work so I could look up the nutritional info so I could make an informed choice.

Well, would ya look at that? Dunkin Donuts offers a handy Printable Nutrition Guide! Swell! I printed that out and started doing some work before checking it out and planning my treat. When I finally got to it, I realized - THEY DON'T LIST CALORIES AT ALL! This "handy" chart includes serving size, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbs, dietary fiber, sugar, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. But no calories!

To find the calories, you have to go to their nutrition page and then click on each item individually. Not impossible, but makes it a pain in the ass to see how a chocolate glazed compares to, say, a jelly.

Screw it. I don't need to work that hard to eat something unhealthy! If I need an illicit sweet, I'll grab a small piece of chocolate from the boss's office later!

Wow! Congratulations! I've been away from the blog world too long. Your comment on my last blog from...from...(it's sad, I can't even remember the last time I blogged) spurred me into action and to come at least visit your blog and leave a few comments. Glad to see you're back in action and from the sounds of it, looking and feeling great!
