No wonder I was overweight!
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Sometimes, to remind myself of something (not quite sure what) I visit the websites of various fast food places and plug in my old "go to" meals to see where I am at calorie wise...
2 double stack burgers @ 460 calories/each
Medium fry @ 410 calories
Medium Frosty @ 410 calories
Medium Coke @ 240 calories
Total calories = 1980
2 whopper Jrs @ 340 calories/each
Medium Onion Ring @ 410 calories
Hershey's Sundae Pie @ 310 calories
Large Sweet Tea @ 240 calories
Total Calories = 1640
2 McDoubles @ 390 calories/each
Medium Fry @ 380 calories
2 apple pies @ 250 calories/each
Iced Coffee @ 120 calories
Total Calories = 1780
1 footlong Steak and Cheese on White w/ lettuce, tomato, onion, and mayo
1 bag of chips @ 160 calories
3 cookies @ 200 calories/each
Coke @ 260 calories
Total Calories = 2020
I could go on and on with Taco Bell, KFC, Arby's, and so on, but I think you get the idea. No wonder I was overweight! Seriously! Looking at this now, I don't see how I ever ate it. The thought of it makes me sick. Ugh, I don't get it. Ick!
Now,while I still *sort of* eat at some of these places, I make a lot better choices. The only thing I get from Mcdonalds is the coffee. I can't stomach the thought of their food. Wendy's is either a salad or a small chili, BK is... well nothing, I don't like anything from there, except their BBQ Chicken salad, which is a limited edition, so i don't count it... Subway I still get a steak and cheese, but it is on a flat bread, 6inch, no mayo, and I don't even eat it all.
So anyway, I am still having the great phone debate. I REALLY want to get a Smart Phone so I can have the Zombies Run! app, but the thought of paying all of that money for a phone makes me cringe and hurt inside. I have a hard time justifying a phone bill of over $100 a month when I don't even get service at my house. I will keep debating this over and over in my head for months I am sure!
I am working all this week. In fact, by the end of my shift on Saturday, I will have put in a total of 87 hours.
Sunday 9/22 = 12 hrs
Monday 9/23 = 13 hrs
Tuesday 9/24 = 13 hrs
Wednesday 9/25 = 12 hrs
Thursday 9/26 = 12 hrs
Friday 9/27 = 12 hrs
Saturday 9/28 = 13 hrs
That is a lot of work! I would also like to mention my house in under construction and they start work every morning at 7:00 - I get home from work on the 13 hour days at 7:00 am and at 5:00 am on the 12 hour days. I am thinking that I will eventually sleep just from sheer exhaustion. Oh, and I have to manage to fit some PC Fit in there somewhere. I went today at 10:00, and I know I will hit Friday at 5:30 am, but I would like to get another class in, just not sure which one. If I don't it isn't a *huge* deal, because next week my schedule will go back to normal, and I will be able to continue on.
I am dragging right now. I was up at around 8 this morning, and it is now 3:00 am, I have 4 more hours of work left, and when I get home, a construction crew will be putting siding on my house or something. Lucky for me, I have ear plugs, which I intend on using. Hopefully they help and I am able to get some much needed rest.
I think that is all for now. I have some pics to post later on of my awesome outfit today
