I’m back with another non-scale victory today!
I’ll start this out by saying that I love McDonald’s. I’m not ashamed of it. Those big yellow arches call my name every single time. Big Macs aren’t my thing though. I prefer my calories in liquid form from this particular establishment. One large caramel iced coffee please!
How does this relate to a non-scale victory, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. I haven’t had one drop of that heavenly goodness in over two weeks. I’ll be honest, it didn’t start out as a health change. It was all about the money. Each drink cost me $2.47. That doesn’t seem like much, but those babies add up. In case you haven’t heard, college students don’t have very much money. Shocking, I know. Health-wise, my drink costs a whopping 260 calories (according to my Lose It! app). Luckily, I’ve found an alternative that is good for my wallet and my waistline!
Meet my new best friend:
This little beauty is 35 calories per tablespoon and only cost me $2.79. Seems like a bargain to me in more ways than one! Next time, I think I might try the pumpkin spice or creme brulee flavors. Yum!
Do you have a favorite coffee flavoring?
What is your non-scale victory for the week?
