I've developed a thing for pistachio muffins at Dunn Brothers Coffee, which is just a hop-skip-and-jump from my office, and this is not a good thing to develop as I'm just about to start a new calorie-counting diet. And then there's the strawberry-cheesequake blizzards at Dairy Queen, which I'm hoping will seem less appealing as cooler weather hits us. I used to be better at self-control than I am now, and actually self-control was never my strong suit anyway.
Uh-oh. I just checked. A strawberry-cheesequake blizzard has 530 calories and 21 grams of fat. And that's for the small size (and who ever orders a small blizzard?)!
Even worse: The pistachio muffin at Dunn Bros. has 600 calories and 30 grams of fat. Life just isn't at all fair. This diet is gonna be tough.
