Here I am thinking...I'm ok. I've got my calories under control. It's after lunch and I only consumed a little over 700 calories. I'm ok. Then life happened. I had an extremely busy afternoon and evening. All of the sudden it's 10:00 p.m. and I haven't had dinner yet. This is bad, cause the only thing I want is fast food. I'm NOT going home and cooking now. I start to think of the "healthy" fast food places I could go. Came up with Wendy's. Oh yeah, now that's a plan. As I sit in the drivethru I'm thinking of what "healthy" choice I could have. Over and over in my mind I'm thinking..."I want to be THAT healthy guy whose proud of his choices and is losing weight, yeah, I want to be that guy". So I think I'll just choose a baked potato and....need some protein....chicken nuggets. I add a baked potato with sour cream and chives. The sour cream is reduced fat. They can't be that bad.
OK. They weren't that bad. 220 calories for five, count them 5 chicken nuggets. Of course I got and order for my son (the rock star health nut) and...of course we had to split an order. After all, who gets full from 5 chicken nuggets! Well after eating I want to log my calories. LO and Behold!! The potato is a whopping 300+ calories. WHAT!! It didn't even have butter on it!! Whose actually doing the math here!!
So needless to say I went over my calorie count today. I've got to exercise tomorrow. I want to work off the damage I've done tonight. Oh boy, there is no "healthy" fast food out there. Gotta read Eat This/Not that a little closer!
Hope you had more success. Tomorrow is another day to climb this mountain.
