Doughnut Sandwiches and Harlem Shakin'


Well, happy belated National Doughnut day to you all!  I suppose that, being a personal trainer and all, I may lose some credibility by admitting that I've been known to enjoy the occassional donut....or 3. What can I say?  I, like most New Englanders, love my Dunkin'.  

However, there's been one recent development from Dunkin' that got me a bit fired up.  Behold, the doughnut sandwhich. 

If this sandwich isn't familiar to you (after all, it was unveiled nationally yesterday), here's a link I found from the Boston Globe:

Doughtnut sandwich from Dunkin' gets rave reviews

Yes, it's billed as "only having 360 calories," as if calories are all that matters.  Apparently macro and micronutrients - and all the elements that make up proper nutrition - should be thrown to the wind.  Whatever happened to acting like a grown up when it comes to food?  Just because you CAN be eating something, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Next, I wanted to share a bit more about where I work.  It's no secret that I love my job, and my clients and coworkers have helped truly made it a pleasure to go to work every day.  That said, a few weeks ago (while our owners were overseas, mind you) we decided to make the following video.  We then forwarded on said video to our owners in an ambiguous email titled "Gym Issues." Now, If the Harlem Shake is new to you, I suggest watching this video before you click below.  Hold on to your pants. 

Lastly, I just wanted to thank everyone that's been reading my blog for the past few months.  I really appreciate the feedback I've received and hopefully reading my posts haven't lulled you to sleep....yet.  All joking aside, it means a lot and I hope you continue to do so!
