A few months ago, I made a sort of strange bargain with myself – something I don’t normally do. I told myself that if I could drop 20 pounds by running and training for a half-marathon, I could have any Blizzard® Treat I wanted after my race. Now, I’ll admit, that’s a bit of a strange bargain to make on a few fronts. First, I work at the DQ® corporate headquarters, and could indulge in any food item or treat my heart desired. Secondly, why work so hard to achieve a goal like that only to have the pleasure of imbibing in a few hundred calories?
The answer is simple…I love Blizzard Treats. And if that what it takes to get one, count me in! I’m at the age now where a the pounds don’t come off as easy as they once did. Hence, the bargain—I’m a sucker for a challenge.
Although it has come with a lot of early mornings and sweat equity, I’m happy to report that this past weekend I met my goal. I completed the race, my clothes are fitting better and I rewarded myself with a Brownie Batter Blizzard Treat. And I can say, it was worth every mile!
