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.
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.
