Re-evaluating my eating

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Hi my name is Dawn and I am addicted to McDonald's breakfast.
I know it sounds kind of funny, but I love, love Sausage McMuffins and chocolate chip cookies for breakfast on my drive into work. I kep saying I could give it up, but I didn't.

I am McDonald's free now for 7 days. The only McDonald's I had was this past Saturday when I volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House, make a meal program. I, along with co-workers made breakfast for those staying at the house.

In place of McDonald's I have been having a banana & yogurt. My lunches have really never been an issue, but those have gotten better. And my husband & I have made dinner every night this week.

Tonight when I go meet with my trainer, I can tell him....7 days McDonald's free! Yay me.

    good job! keep asking yourself.. is it worth it? cause those mc-y d's can taste good but they leave ya craving more and more and really are "bad" calories. (as you know) so happy happy happy for you that your breaking a habit! its hard to do. the first 3 weeks are probably the hardest. i was a frozen coke junkie. so i get it. ;)

    Keep you eye on the prize!!! way to make a small change that WILL add up!

    One good choice at a time and your continuing in the right direction! emoticon

    Keep on keep'n on!

    Here in my office "weirdly" lots of employees eat breakfast in the office in the morning, lots of them eat cereal, it is what I do too, I prepare my cereal qith Splenda in a hefty cup and with a disposable spoon before leaving my house, and I eat it as soon as I get to the office, I have 3 different kind of cereals, so I don't really eat the exact same thing everyday, and it works for me, when we have cold weather I do oatmeal and instead of cold cereal, I get the oatmeal... Just trying to give you some other options for your breakfast....

    Awesome for you!!! I am sure that stuff IS addicting because that's exactly how it's supposed to be. The longer you stay away that faster addiction will be broken. I use to LOVE McDonald's fries...until I saw that Super Size Me documentary then I went cold turkey........that was 9 years ago and I have not had McD's EVER again. It's also the ingredient list that helped me out alot...when I read the ingredients to their buns and sauces and what not I saw that it wasn't even food so it made it even easier to stay away...we really do kill ourselves in this country....I just wanted a documentary on YouTube that really was very interesting, "The Weight of the Nation". I guess the more I learn about food and how and what it does to my body, the easier it is for me to choose real food...I still have the occasional treat but nothing how I use to eat!! Keep up the good work!!!
