Back To Life

Back to life.  The past few days have been a frenzy, but now that the dust has settled from my appearance on national television, it’s time to get back into the nitty-gritty of living my life.

Unfortunately, I was jolted back to reality earlier today with some bad news.  I’m writing this post from Los Angeles International Airport, where I’m sitting at a gate, waiting to get on a plane to Michigan, where there’s a family matter that I want to be present for.  It’s not an ideal way for this week to continue, but I’m lucky and happy that I’m in a position (i.e. unemployed) where I’m able to drop everything (which is really nothing much at all) to buy a plane ticket to fly across the country.

Guess what’s right next to my gate.  C’mon, guess!  Did you guess Cinnabon?  If you did, congrats!  You’re the big winner, give yourself a pat on the back.

I’ve never been a big Cinnabon fan, or even a fan of cinnamon rolls in general, but they kinda smell good right now.  Don’t worry – I’m not going to buy one, and next time you’re tempted, you shouldn’t either.  I just now looked up the nutrition info, and it’s revolting.  Want to know the damage?  A Classic Cinnabon has:

  • 880 calories
  • 36 grams of fat
  • 17 grams of saturated fat
  • 830 grams of sodium

Ugh.  The thought of eating one minutes before getting on a 4 hour flight makes me queasy.  The thought of eating one, at any time, makes me queasy for that matter.

I planned, though, and thought ahead.  In my bag are two gala apples – perfect for munching on the plane.

Keep it up, David!

    You GO David! I’d add a dash of cinnamon to those apples, cinnamon helps blood sugar… and enjoy your on personal cinna-apple 🙂

    Sorry about the family issue, hope it works out as it should 🙂

  2. 880 CALORIES???? OMG! THIS is why I stopped buying food when we’re out!!!
    Nice job resisting, and have a safe flight, David. I’m sorry you’re having to deal with something not so fun.

    Hi David,
    LOVE your blog and your messages and your segment on Ellen yesterday was amazine, like you! I just read today’s entry and sorry to hear you had to fly to Michigan so suddenly. I assume we have to reschedule our lunch, no worries. My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family. Be well and Keep It Up David!

    Sorry to hear about your week ending in this matter but good for you. I’ve never been a fan of a cinnamon roll and now that you’ve shared the nutritional info – don’t think I ever will be! You have done an awesome job winning your battle – a true inspiration for those of us who continue ours – Thank you!

    Sorry to hear about you family issue.

    Omg cinnabons were once my fav “once in a blue moon treat” but now there are none in boston. When I went to nyc less than 2 yrs ago I got one & omg it made me sick. It tasted great but after being well into my healthy living journey my body did not like all the sugar/fat!

    Woo way to go David. I made 70 batches of homemade cinnamon rolls for people for Christmas. But we only have them once a year, and they have to be homemade, not that crap they sell at the malls. And you were right about feeling queasy if you would have ate one. Stay with the clean eating! Your body loves it and craves it! Woo Hoo!!!

    hey david,
    in regards to the cinnabon, a good thing to remember is “taste is mostly smell.” so enjoy the smell, waft in it, just don’t eat it… it’s all the delight without any of the guilt! safe travels. love to you and your family

    It’s so impressive that you’re not turning to food – I have a tendency to just not worry about what I’m eating when I’m upset, and I have a very bad habit of eating like some kind of monster in airports! I will think of you next time I want to eat a danish the size of my head. And I’m pretty sure I’ll never eat a Cinnabon again!

    Drink loads of h2o on the plane very dehydrating on those, and lotion too! Don’t want to be all sexy skinny and dried out!!! Have a great great day David!
