Of Cinnamon buns and Fast Food Brekkies

Monday, March 07, 2011

Today started off bad from a nutrition standpoint when my friend wanted to take me to breakfast (fast food) instead of the nice brekkie we'd planned. Right now, fast food joints are like taking drugs for me. I ended up having a ham croissanwich (which I DEARLY love) which came with breakfast potatoes (which I split with Angel). A cup of coffee, heavy on the creamer, and I was well into carb heaven. TWO cups of coffee and the walmart cream-cheese frosted cinnamon bun sitting there calling my name was toast.

Just these foods were 1,252 calories, darn near a day's worth. The carbs were in my range for the day, fat near the top, and protein on the low side. emoticon

We typically eat dinner very late here, because steve gets home very late and we are all up late. But the turkey noodle casserole, a plus from the nutrition standpoint, will ring every chime in the cal/carb/fat colums. Yeesh.

Good evidence that to keep on track, the day needs to start off RIGHT. emoticon

    @fatrockstar -- I am SO glad you said that. cereal and milk has ALWAYS made me want to pig out, even more so than pancakes or muffins. I like knowing someone else has the same issue! emoticon

    That is why I cannot eat cereal at the beginning of my day-I get that carb thing going and it is high carbs all day long! Normandy

    emoticon Some times the battle beats us but learning what areas we need to work on are worth the recon sometimes, as they say live and learn. I really do what to give you emoticon for blogging about it and understanding a bad situation. Spark On! emoticon

    We have our high days and our low days. Sounds like you will be fine unless you get a bad case of portion distortion (I do that). Victoria
