So, I've not been enjoying my coffee these last couple days...mostly because when I'm pouring it now, I'm thinging about how many calories are in my creamer. And its not that I'm so much wanting to trade those calories for something a little more substantial, its just that I think about how I'm starting off every morning with a blast of sugar. Ugh!
And yet I LOVE the smell of my coffee, and I look forward to making it every morning, and the first few sips are soooo good. But then it starts to cool off, and I take it to work with me and it cools off more, and before long, I'm not enjoying it at all. I like my caffeine boost every morning, and I don't drink so much that I'm having issues with it, I'm just starting to struggle with whether or not I should attempt to give it up entirely. I suppose I could try and find a sugar-free version of the creamers I like. But I really hate the taste of artificial sweeteners, so that idea doesn't thrill me at all.
So, while I'm contemplating a change in my morning routine, here's where I'm at so far today:
coffee, 140 calories
water, 16.7 ounces
a medium banana, 105 calories
Total so far: 245 calories
Lunch: side salad with chicken, feta, tomato, greek dressing, 516 cal
Iced tea: 75 calories
Running total: 836 calories
Dinner: 2 cups turkey soup, no noodle, 150 calories
Olga's snackers (5/6) 217 calories
Total: 1203 calories, looks like I'm done for the night. Only water from now until bedtime.
