Well hello there! Is anyone else dealing with allergies all of a sudden? Last night, I was in yoga class and our instructor asked us to do something like this:
Let's just say, it got messy because of my allergies. Ew.
Moving on. What I covered on the show today. I'm bitter because I put some really cute things on the blog and LOST IT!!!!! ARGH!
6:15- COFFEE IS MAKING US FAT!!!!!
When you get up in the am, do you drink those crazy gourmet coffee drinks with the extra shot of syrup, the caramel drizzled on top, and the whip cream? Yeah, youre drinking half of your daily calories (for a 2,000 calorie diet). According to the latest buzz oncoffee consumption, more than 80% of Americans drink the stuff- a 5% increase over last year. But only half of regular coffee drinkers get their fix from a regular cup of joe, while more than 30% opt for specialty drinks like lattes, cappuccinos and blended beverages, which tend to be much higher in fat, calories and sugar. While a brewed coffee with cream and sugar only has about 75 calories, the typical specialty drink has at least 240 and sometimes more. For instance, a Dunkin’ Donuts frozen coffee drink with all the fixings can set you back more than a thousand calories and a week’s worth of saturated fat! If you simply can’t trade your daily caramel-vanilla extra-foam latte for a cup of black coffee, consider choosing low- or nonfat milk and sugar-free syrups.By the way, who knew there was aNational Coffee Association National Coffee Drinking Trends report? Evidently there is.

8:15- I'm super tired this morning because I stayed up waaaay past my beddy bye time last night watching "Crazy Sexy Cool", the biopic about TLC. The actresses looked a lot like the characters they were portraying. It was crazy. I really liked it. Here's a review from a person who sorta liked it.
