Today purely from laziness and a bit of greed - (I wanted the hot fudge sundae) - I had lunch with my kid at Mcdonalds. Ate the cheeseburger, the sundae, half of the small fries and two sips of Coke. Came home, logged it on my tracker and was amazed and disgusted that such a small quantity of food had so many calories.
I've had a lot of energy lately because of eating really well, and exercising. Not this afternoon! By the time I finally sat down after a really-not-very-strenuous day, I had to cut a conversation with my son short so I could close my eyes. I slept for an hour and could still be asleep if I had my way.
Last week husband and I took a lovely long stroll at the lake, and then went to Hungry Jack (AU version of Burger King). I had the same kind of meal as I ate today. Two hours later...same scenario. Crashed out in the recliner so hard I didn't even realise we had guests.
Lesson learned: The burger and a few fries weren't worth the afternoon and evening of sluggishness. Fast food is not fuel. The sundae however, was divine. :)
