Yep, that's what I'm doing these days. I like it better when I don't know how many calories are in my favorite treats. For example, my beloved Eggnog Latte from Starbuck's is 470 calories. And that's just the Grande size! Before I knew that little fact, I would tell myself that it couldn't be too bad.
That's the sound of my blissful bubble of ignorance bursting.
Chocolate Covered Candy Cane Jo-Jos from Trader Joe's:
One cookie has 150 calories! I ate four of them on Sunday. Before I bothered to check.
I could go on and on but the sound of popping bubbles is giving me a headache. Alas*, it's good to know these things. I watched School House Rock when I was a kid, and they told me that knowledge is power. It has to be true.
"Conjunction-Junction, what's your function?" Ahhhh... those were the days!
In Other News...
Tomorrow I am taking on Mule Hill again. My calf feels a little better and I'm hoping it will hang in there for my run. I took my boys on a "hike" there this afternoon (it's amazing how crazy house-bound boys can make me!). I loved it more than they did but it did its job tiring them out. I also got to take more pictures... with my big girl camera. I'll post them after I run it (hopefully tomorrow).
New Blogger Look
Some of you have made comments about the new look for my blog. Thanks for the kind remarks! Bethany from Our Love on the Run** wanted to know if the picture at the top is of a trail where I get to run. The answer is, yes... but not as often as I would like. In fact, that trail is across the I-15 from the Mule Hill Trail. If you're local or if you ever come to San Diego, you've got to check out the San Dieguito River Park .
I love nature!!
*"Alas"... I must have picked that one up from some Jane Austin novel, or something.
**Check out Bethany's blog... she and her fiance got engaged at the 2009 Boston Marathon... how cool is that??!!
Tomorrow is Day 3 of the Holiday Bootie Buster... I hope to be able to add some running points!
