The problem with fast food
Saturday, September 14, 2013
Today has been a high eat out day. I picked up some Perkins eclaires this morning because I knew my dad wanted them yesterday, so I got him one today (as well as my mother and me and one for the kids to split). Those are 500 calories a piece, but I love them! Fortunately I also don't have them more often than a couple of times a year.
Then I took my mom out to get some shopping done. She can't drive right now until her eyes are done being fixed, but I like being out with her, so we went. The girl behind the prescription counter actually called me Mom's daughter, that's a first, I'm usually being called her sister, but apparently either I'm looking younger or she's finally looking older. We ended up having lunch out, Arby's. I only had a sandwich and some of my daughter's fries and a couple of spoonfuls of a shake. Could have been worse.
But now I plan on having some leftovers from the Chinese food we had last night. Yep, I'm already up a pound just in sodium intake.
Fortunately not every day is like this. I picked a bunch of tomatoes off the plants at my mom's house, so I'm set for tomorrow. I do know I'm going to be over my calorie count for the day simply because I had the eclaire. I can get back on track tomorrow by making sure I have all the veggies I normally have. It will only be an issue for a couple of days, but I'll lose that water weight in a couple of days.
