My Deepest Darkest Fantasies....

....happen at Starbucks these days.


Did you know that while I wait in line to order my morning coffee, I have a staring match with that damn case of baked goods.  I usually start making deals with myself.  More like deals with the Devil. My internal dialogue of fantasies goes something like this:

"You could eat that croissant and then skip lunch. No biggie!"

OR

"You will totally burn off the calories in that chocolate donut at Zumba tonight. Go ahead, get it."

OR

"You could eat that muffin on the way to work in the car and it will be like it never happened."

Yep, these are the crazytown thoughts that go through my head.

But do you know what actually happens in reality? 

I order my Grande Skinny Caramel Latte and leave Starbucks with no donut, croissant, or muffin.  Sigh.

  3. I never knew Starbucks posted calories on their food items! Good to know.
    So glad you're winning the argument with those little devils!

  5. Oh how good do they look! They are not doing themselves any favours by posting the calories-do they have to do that by law?

  7. I have those same internal conversations in the grocery store when I want to purchase a half gallon of ice cream and am trying to convince myself that "this time" I can eat it sparingly. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha and ha :)

  9. I had this problem, too - so I started going through the drive-thru where I couldn't see all those pastries!

    It works for me :)

  10. Good job resisting temptation like that. I wonder how much their sales have slowed since putting calories on the pastry items?

    Way to keep rockin it!

  11. I do the same type of thinking when I see something oh so delcious! Especially the "I can eat it and no one has to know about it" I try to use that one a lot but I just tell my inner fat girl to shut up I am not eating it and move on. I wish those stupid temptations would go away!
    Isn't it insane how one tiny little donut can pack so many calories?

  15. Starbucks pastries are so ridiculous in calories. I LOVE the skinny drinks though!

  16. Okay I admit it. Sometimes I DO have a donut. I take 2 bites and throw the rest out. 75 calories. Not bad, not good, but sometimes nothing else will do. Kudos to your willpower!
