Short Post

Okay, so having a chocolate addiction isn't so bad. Neither is having a Starbucks addiction. However, pairing up either with a snooze button addiction and you have a problem. If I can't run for the amount of time I need to, how on earth and I supposed the burn the calories from that tall, non-fat, no-whip mocha??? Anyone? Luckily, I have cut down to only one a week. And, I no longer get the "low-fat" pastries. I wish I could say the same for the chocolate. :-) Hey, a girls gotta have at least one vice...right?

I managed to get in a very easy 25 minutes on the dreadmill. Not so bad, but considering I was going to do 40, not so good either. So, 25 minutes running, followed by 25 minutes of Economics homework, followed by 45 minutes of getting ready for work, followed by 10 minutes of Higglytown Heroes with the kiddo. Today's hero? A Receptionist! Hmmm....

oooh that's my drink too! To keep it under control I load my Starbucks card with $20 per month. That's about 5 tall nonfat no whip mochas per month, ususally spent on Saturday AM after my long run with one extra thrown in there on a weekday when I am totally dragging!

You evil Starbucks lovers LOL JK! I'm a Dunkin Donuts girl. But I CAN relate to a coffee addiction. I'm trying to kick it . . . LOL "trying" being the major word.

I really dig Higglytown Heros. I think much more so than my daughters LMAO! Right us there with Backyardigans. What the heck is wrong with me? HAHA

But doesn't the "non-fat" and "no-whip" make it an all-around healthy beverage?? :)

You know I am no help at all with those types of addictions. LOL
