Float on

I’m so relieved to learn that JITB’s Root Beer Floats only have 470 calories and 20 grams of fat. (Small vanilla milkshakes have 570 cals and 29 grams of fat, so you can see why I’d be concerned.) Was starting to feel like my float-a-day habit could have a negative effect on my physique.

My co-conspirator at work complained to her new boyfriend that she was feeling fat and he intimated that it was because of the float a day. (Please collectively gasp here.)

Here’s what I know: Two floats a day is not acceptable. I probably should cut back to one every other day. But solid food remains a challenge (it aches on the left side too, now) and floats do contain a significant 15% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A, 25% Calcium, 2% Iron and 4% Vitamin C. And 8 grams of protein! (Yeah, we did ask the chick at the drive-thru for the nutritional information.)
