Now...don't get me wrong...I KNEW it wasn't good for me....and had to be CHUCK full of calories and sugar...but I would have NEVER guessed it was this bad!!!
So as I slurped every last drop of it, (because it'll be a LONG time before I have any of that cold coffee goodness again) I started thinking....about how much I used to love to eat a big fat Boston Creme donut with it....and I started wondering.....
YIKES.....now don't get me wrong....I'm far from stupid. I knew both of these were...shall we say...not good choices....when I made them....but would have never thought that combined they would be 690 calories and 78 grams of sugar!
Maybe I was in denial, or so high on sugar I just didn't care....but WOW.....
anywho...I have learned my lesson...Go big or go home shall be my motto for exercise, running, and loving my family....but not for Dunkin Donuts...(and Dunkin Donuts, if you are reading this....I shall continue to love you....it'll just have to be a long distance relationship!)
On another note...I'll be running my first 10k this month...the day before what would have been my daddy's 60th birthday...I stand in awe of the fact that in January of this year I couldn't run for 30 seconds without thinking my family would find me on the side of the road passed out...and now I can run for an hour and a half and cover almost 8 miles....and I'm not done yet....I'm happy to say, I'll be running a 5k with my son in October and a 5k with my daughter in November......That is what I set out to accomplish...to teach them to have positive goals and to never say I can't....I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by people that have always known I had this in me...even when I thought I couldn't....and I can never thank them enough for believing in me and knowing I could make it this far....and further........
hhhmmmmm....maybe I could run to dunkin donuts....LOL...NNNAAAAHHHHHH
