Eating at McD's and trying to not overstress.
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Ok, I know McDonald's is one of the worst places to try to eat well, but it's one of the cheapest, and with what's going on, hubby and I NEED some out and alone time. So please - before you comment - realize I know McD's is crappy food.
That said, I tracked before we went, and looked at the Grilled Chicken club, the Grilled Chicken, and the Filet-o-fish. I was rather shocked to find that of the 3, the Filet of Fish wins in almost every category but the protein. It's got the lowest protein count of all. So I'm trying to plan dinner. Despite the calorie count, I might go with the grilled chicken. I've got the calories for it, and I'm low on protein, since we're out of eggs and I haven't done my morning omelette.
I'm getting back into things, I'm remembering to track BEFORE going out, and looking calories up! Yea me! We're walking there, so I'll be getting some steps in, which is good. I've done a little yoga, and I'll do more before bed. I still haven't done the first day of the couch to 5K. I meant to yesterday, and got derailed by everything. Today...I just don't have the motivation :( I might try to do it tonight, we'll see.
Thanks for everyone's support on yesterday's blog. It's appreciated. The last 2 days have been really rough.
