WTH Monday

I know it's early on a Monday to already be posting a "WTH?", because there are still hours and hours left for the day to go to crap. 

However, I just found out that my one eight-ounce cup of hot chocolate has as many calories as my one twelve-ounce can of Coke.  Too bad I didn't figure that out until after I'd already made it!  No wonder my scale's not been budging.  I've been cutting out Coke by adding in other drinks, including hot chocolate, and inadvertently increasing my caloric intake, what with drinking three to four hot chocolates a day instead of my one Coke.  Don't know why it didn't dawn on me earlier to check the calories in hot chocolate, but I'm going to savor this one, which will be my last for a while.

If it tastes good, run away. Black tea, black coffee or water with a no-doze ground up in it. Only. Ymmm.

Now go check out the calorie content on your favorite Starbucks fix. Water is still the best drink for weight loss. May not have much in the way pizzaz, but there's no calories and it's refreshing. If you want to spice things up, get some sparkling water and add some fresh fruit juice.

Its something in the air... I'm telling you.. we are having a WTH (borderline WTF) Monday here too....

Enjoy the hot chocolate anyways ;)

Yeah, Bill, remember that pesky heart condition? No ground up no-doze for me.

K, Thank God I don't do Starbucks! I've got some Celestial Seasonings Zingers that I can put into my water if I need something sweet and I match every Coke I drink with a liter of water, which has drastically decreased my Coke intake.

MM, yeah, my WTH day has pretty much turned into a WTF day. See? I said it was still early.

I gave up my diet coke about a month or so ago and switched to diet green tea....yeah...it's actually pretty good. Too bad I haven't found anything to replace my white chocolate mocha/no whip of course!! That's my downfall!

Enjoy your last hot chocolate!!

Great. I've been adding hot chocolate to my coffee every morning for the last couple of weeks. Gotta check that calorie count.

Mad Woman said...

Oh that sucks! I'm still guzzling my Coke Zero but not in quite the same quantities. I know that water is best but damn that Coke tastes good!

GunDiva said...

Won't give up my Coke and Diet Coke and Coke Zero aren't the same, so you all just enjoy those, 'cause I'm sticking with my full sugar, full caffeine drink. I'll just continue to match it with water and make sure I burn it off on the elliptical machine. Oh how I love the calorie counters on the machine now.
