1/2 & 1/2, on the double

Fixing my coffee at Wawa today, I wondered how many calories I'm actually consuming since I like it rather light, and half-and-half is my additive of choice. Each little tub is 20 calories, but since I pour from the jugs, I have no idea how much I'm using. I always think that I've got a low-cal drink because I don't add sugar, but I could be adding a couple hundred calories without really thinking about it.

I guess what I'm aiming for is to be conscious of all the invisible calories I'm ingesting without becoming an obsessed, measure-everything-to-the-microgram diet psycho.
