coffee, tea or me

it’s a random one today kids.

McDonald’s pissed me off this morning – again.

I take my hot coffee with a little bit of cream.  NO SUGAR.  by no sugar, i also mean no sweetener
face it, i am sweet enough.
If someone accidentally puts sugar in my coffee…i just can’t drink it.  I take a sip and my face looks like i just drank poison, or perhaps sucked on a lemon.
it’s just gross to me – i can’t have it in my coffee.

My tea??
i cannot have it without sugar. lol
it’s the complete opposite to my coffee.  and by sugar i mean sweetener.
if there is no sweetener i just can’t drink it!
why is that???

Iced Coffee??
it needs to be sweet.
so hot coffee – zero sugar.  iced coffee –  tons of sugar!!
why????
i don’t get it.
it’s still coffee….so why do i like one sweet and one not sweet?
i can drink the iced coffee without sweetener – but it’s not as refreshing to me when it’s not sweet.

i’m an odd one i know.

So i was finally at my breaking point at McDonald’s today.
all week, specifically asking them to not add the sugary syrup in my iced coffee, but to just replace it with sweetener…i always get it with NO sweetener…
by the time i figure it out, i have left the parking lot and am in a mad hurry to get my already late butt to work.
i mutter some obscenities to myself cause it makes me feel better…and drink the iced coffee…begrudgingly of course

today when i ordered – i asked Katie if she could please make sure to put sweetener in my iced coffee as they have been forgetting all week.
sure she says…no problem and sorry about that.

i get my coffee – and they even wrote on the lid that it was made with sweetener.
I was happy!!

they lied.

there was no sweetener in it.

they made me have grumpy face this morning.
no one should ever have grumpy face on Friday’s – it’s the law.

So that’s my story.  Katie has disappointed me this week.

on to other news…i woke up with this song stuck in my head….if you want it stuck in yours, click here!

i don’t see the problem do you?

i pretty much know all the evening staff at my McDonald’s
not by name or anything, but now when i walk in…they know what i am coming in for.

living a healthy lifestyle requires you to make some adjustments to things…especially when ordering out
i used to feel really bad changing things up and making people’s lives more difficult…
but i gotta say…i am over it.

so when i first ordered my iced coffee – with none of that syrup crap…i got funny looks.
now they just smile and make it.

it makes my life easier not having to constantly repeat myself every time i order one
which is practically every single night.
after the gym, or after dinner…or during a walk.

my morning lady loves me 🙂
she knows how i take my hot coffee (double cream no sugar – cause i am totally sweet enough)
and we have a pleasant conversation over the speaker at drive thru
she recognizes my car…and my coffee is ready before i even get there
i get to the window…we exchange pleasantries, she wishes me a good day at work.
she even notices if i am running late.
she pays attention…
i think i love her.
she makes me my coffee – quite perfectly might i add…smiles and sends me off to work
and we do that every morning…it’s like we are married.
i feel like we have something special here.

so recently, i’ve been double fisting it in the mornings
i order my hot coffee…and now i’ve added my iced coffee special.
poor Katie (that’s my girls’ name) i totally threw her for a loop

but now she knows what i want – again…and gives it to me just the way i want it
and there’s something really awesome about someone knowing what you like
and making things as you like them.

is it too much?  have i gone too far?
i have a relationship with my McDonald’s…
i can’t imagine one day without an iced coffee.

there’s gotta be a 12 step for that.
i’ll deal with it once the summer dollar days are over.
until then…bring ’em on baby.

not gonna happen

there are just some things i won’t give up to get to size sexy bitch
 
i think in the past, giving things up that i loved, was the reason for my demise.
the reason the skinny walls came crumbling down.
 
like i blogged last night…i got my new bras
and even though they are sexy sexy sexy
i still have a long way to go to feel as sexy as they look
know what i mean?
 
anyways…these are things i will not give up.  nope. not ever…even for size sexy bitch.
 
i know i’ve blogged here before about my crazy diet coke addiction.
not just diet coke.  fountain diet coke from McDonald’s…that indeed is my crack.
i could drink it every single day..no problem – but i don’t.
but i could.
and i won’t stop…and you can’t make me.
living right beside a McDonald’s makes it all the more tempting
(yes, that means my gym is right beside McDonald’s too lol)
i gotta tell you…i am a little sick.  sometimes i just want a salad from there to give me a reason to get the diet coke.
i’m not stopping.  nuh-uh.
 
Coffee.
never gonna happen.
you may appreciate that if you have ever been around me without a cup of coffee in my system.
I gave up coffee back in the day for about 2 weeks.
worst 2 weeks of my life…and probably for those who had to deal with me.
i had the worst headache and was in the worst mood.
i love my coffee.  i don’t think i over do it…i don’t drink copious amounts…
but it’s my drug in the morning….and my 2nd wind when i hit the 3 o’clock wall at work.
 
Wine.
need i say more???
lol
i am aware that it’s pretty high in calories
but i don’t care. tis true.  i care not.
a glass of wine in the evening – especially in the winter is a necessity…a survival staple
besides, my doctor strongly encourages me to drink
when i told him i enjoy my glass of red..he said i could enjoy 2 if i wanted
i think my doctor rocks.
he might be a closet alcoholic…but i love him
lol
 
if i were to say no to these things…do you know how miserable i would be?
i understand the concept of losing weight and being healthy…i do
but with the knowledge that i can never have something ever again…well that is indeed a recipe for failure.
 
and that goes with everything else.
the word NO does not exist for me.
instead i live by not now, not today, not necessary
 
i have not banned any form of bread, rice, pasta from my life
i simply have no desire to eat it.
but i can if i wanted to.
and simply giving myself that choice, makes me not want it at all.
 
just the other night i had a sub on a whole wheat 9 grain bun
it was delish – and not the worst thing i could eat.
it was after 2 days of wanting…so on the 3rd day i had it.  obviously my body was craving something in it yes?
 
anyways that’s my story.
size sexy bitch is attainable – without giving up everything and anything you love
plus…going to the gym now gives me more room for some sinful pleasures.
 
that is all.
now someone please get me a diet coke?!
