Holiday weight gain

Here’s one of the main reasons I gained so much weight over the holiday season: A venti Starbucks eggnog latte has 630 calories per serving. And I was drinking these things like water! There were a few days when I had two egg nog lattes in the same day. That’s 1260 extra calories, on top of the other bad stuff that I was eating.

My goal for this year is to find a way to kick my egg nog habit. I’m addicted to the stuff, and I really cannot afford to be. Between my lack of will power and my slow metabolism, I am doomed during the holidays!

Anyone know the number to egg nog drinkers anonymous?

On the plus side, a Grande nonfat cinnamon latte from Starbucks weighs in at 200 calories. I am so down with that! The grande latte has 14g of protein, so it’s actually a fairly nutritious drink, too. I am altering my meal plan specifically to allow one of these beasties a day. Yummy!
