Bye bye bagel

I'm at my local Panera Bread, doing some work for my writing gigs and finishing up a bagel. It wasn't the bagel I wanted.

I ordered the Plain Bagel.

I wanted the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel.

But I did not want the extra 140 calories the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel came with, so I opted for the plain one. It actually worked out okay because I put a little bit of butter on it, sprinkled some Extra and some cinnamon and it came out tasting like cinnamon after all.

I feel bad for last week's trip here because I did order the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel without actually checking to see the caloric value. It has a whopping 430 calories. That's like my lunch yesterday. It was about 450 calories as I had a wrap (total of 300) and a strawberry-banana yogurt I put together (cut some strawberries, bananas and used plain yogurt, yum, which was about 150 calories or so).

I'm loosely counting my calories again since I was feeling down on myself for not doing so a week ago; actually, since my half-marathon I've not been counting my calories. On Monday I had about (210 + 100 + 450 + 100 + 750) 1,610 calories and today I've had about 500 so far, just before lunchtime.

By the way, the Tooth Fairy paid Yvie a visit last night. Mrs. LB had written a note to Yvie and included some money in there, and Yvie found it this morning. She was so excited. She wants to frame the note. Kenna got a bit jealous though. She wants to lose a tooth now. I guess you can't win for trying.

I am really glad we don't have a Panera near us that would be bad :)
kids are so funny about their teeth, we have 2 who want them left alone till they fall out,1 one wants it pulled the minute it's loose, & 1 who would LOVE to lose a tooth but is too little :) Yay for Yvie!!! Congrats on the first lost tooth :)
