Your Heart and that Energy Drink

Too much of a “good thing”

I bought myself a tray of bakery cookies at the grocery store the other day under the guise that they were ‘peanut free’ so my 2 year old (with major confirmed allergies) could enjoy them while the rest of us dined on a nut-cake I bought for a group of friends.

Here’s the problem.  I have no self-control.  And I’ve been eating the cookies. all. week.  I stepped on the scale last night and Wowzers… I know who was eating the cookies.

The point… one cookie? No problem.  Two cookies? eh.  Three cookies?  Not healthy!

So how about those Energy Drinks you are consuming?
