Done in by a date square

And it wasn't even a date square, after all....
I'm not sure who had the fantastic idea to bring in a platter of baked goods from Starbucks TO A GYM but I'm thinking I owe them a big kick in the pants. Actually, I'M the one who needs the kick in the pants but either way. I grabbed a "date square" and was happily enjoying it despite the fact that it turned out to be a Blueberry Oat Bar when I noticed the Banana Loaf. Not one to ever pass up homemade banana bread, I grabbed a slice of that, too. It was only after both were gone that I visited the Starbucks website for nutritional information. 660 calories! Ok, so I just ate more for snack time than I did for breakfast and pretty much took care of 1/3 of today's allotted calories in the process. CRAP. Good thing I work at a gym. If you need me, I'll be on the Elliptical machine.
Moral of the story: Research first, eat second.
