Oh, yeah, I forgot to blog yesterday. Sorry. And by forgot I mean I was over tired and cranky and just wanted to wallow in naptime. I ate the same-ish sort of stuff I eat most days, high fiber, lots of veggies, yeah that’s how it all went down.
This morning on the other hand I bought Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins. I ate four of them. It is the birthday of the director of The Daily Special and everyone from the crew brought in a little something to celebrate. No, I do not feel any sort of guilt about munchkin eating. I’m human I’m allowed to have pastries. What was the reality check was the calorie count at Dunkin Donuts. New York City mandated that all restaurants that have more than 20 locations within the city post their caloric information. Now, there’s been a lot of fighting about this so I’ve kept up on the story in the news, but I hadn’t seen it in action because I don’t frequent chain restuarants/fast food havens very often. But there it was, staring me in the face a Bran Muffin for 600 calories! Now I understand why the restaurants are fighting tooth and nail to reverse this, there’s no way I’m going to eat a Bran Muffin, ever, ever again. Even the reduced fat muffins were no prize at around 400 calories a peice. Anyhoo, I left with my box o’ munchkins and my coffee (with real cream and sugar-like I said I’m human). Floored I tell you, I was floored. Now I want to go to every fast food restaurant I can find just to people watch.
CZ asked about my improv class. Thanks for reminding me! It was good. I really was the only person besides the instructor there with experience, but I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I had performed with the instructor a few weeks ago, well not with her, but one of her troupes asked my troupe to open for them, so I was like “I know you, I performed with you.” Then we talked about the show a bit, and then I felt like a total snot because I realized that I was “that girl” the one that everyone hates because she brags about the fact that she’s been there done that, and I decided to reserve myself to the background a bit to let other people shine a bit. I’m going to be taking the class for the next 7 weeks, so I’ll be sure to report more on my adventures in making stuff up.
Food, right, that’s what I write about. Here’s the damage for today folks:
I’m going to go for a run today. I really need it. I’ve been seriously neglecting my body in regard to exercise. I use the feeling of exhaustion following me around as an excuse but deep down I know that exercise will help me with that and I won’t be so tired if I get my ass in gear. So, yeah, hold me to that.
