Tagalong Blizzard Bli$$

Alright, so everyone at work was dipping out early and I was tying up the loose ends of everything I didn't manage to finish this week during survey. I figured I'd enjoy some calories...and I mean some CALORIES.

I decided to pay homage to the Dairy Queen Gods and dive into a small Tagalong Blizzard. When I figured it would be pushing the 800 calorie mark (I tasted the peanut butter fabulousness and figured this was worth the elliptical and weights at the gym) I found out it's just a notch under 600 calories at the 560 calorie mark.

Not too bad.

How can you work this delightful dairy splurge into your weight loss plan.

Here's a breakdown if you're on a 1300 calorie diet.


220-240 calories

*coffee with 1/4 cup 2% milk and calorie free sweetener --30 calories

*1/4 cup Fiber One cereal--30 calories, 7 grams of fiber

*1/2 cup blueberries--about 40-50 calories, 3ish grams of fiber

*1 cup egg substitute cooked in fat free cooking spray 120 calories

AM Snack

*1 cup of low fat yogurt, 100 calories


330-380 calories

*1 slice of Kashi pizza-250-300 calories

*1 cup of salad with 2 TBS low fat ranch dressing-80 calories

Glorious DQ Tagalong Blizzard.

Enjoy the Friday and the 1300 calories....
