Ever been to a casual restaurant and ordered a water with your meal, only to be given some little dinky clear plastic cup? Why do restaurants do this?? I find this typically at casual restaurants where you walk up to a counter to order and then go to a beverage station to get your own drink. I don’t know if fast food places do this, but I can think of a couple of nicer places that I frequent that do. I understand that since they don’t charge for water, they want to be able to make sure a person who orders water doesn’t get some other beverage, but a 6 oz cup? That’s like three drinks. Or is it because the price of the cup itself is so much cheaper?
It’s pretty ridiculous to me that a small soda cup is twice as large as a water cup. I guess I could look at it as I get more exercise going back to the beverage station for 10 refills, but seriously, if the restaurant feels so cheated by people ordering water, charge 25 cents and give me a bigger cup!
Anyway, stepping off that soapbox: got up this morning and did the Level 2 30 Day Shred for the 7th time. I’m so over planking. I think I’ll check out the Level 3 video today to see what’s coming up soon.
Yesterday’s food: Earned 3 Activity Points and ate 24.5 points. Right on target with half a point to spare. Drank my water, and ate my servings of fruits and veggies. Good day.
On another side note, have I mentioned I gave up desserts and candy for Lent? It really hasn’t been hard for me – I even made my father-in-law an apple pie for his birthday, which I couldn’t taste to know how it was. That didn’t even bother me – though it is a little awkward to be sitting at a table full of people eating pie while you sit with nothing. But last night, I was stuffing plastic eggs with candy for our church’s upcoming egg hunt, and I had the hardest time not shoveling Skittles into my mouth…fun size packaging and all.
