Yesterday was a hard day to make the right decisions

Sunday, February 10, 2013

It started out by waking up at 2:00am and heading out on the road. My husband and I were driving up the florida panhandle to visit his brother in prison for the first time and he wanted to do it before his deployment. It was a six hour drive and I was wide awake. We stopped off at McDonalds for breakfast - I ended up eating their Oatmeal. At the prison, there isn't much options as far as food goes. It's all microwavable or chips/cookies/crackers. This is where I had a slip and ate a package of peanut butter/cheddar cheese crackers and ate half of a microwavable pouch of cheesy refried beans; I thought that was better than the cheeseburgers or burritos. We left at 3pm and had another 6 1/2 hour drive ahead of us...so that meant more drive thru food because my husband wanted to get home! Of all places where do we stop? MCDONALDS again!!!!! I make the best choice of Grilled chicken caesar salad and only put 1/2 pack of dressing on top.

I swear, am I the only one that DREADS leaving the house and having to make these (feels like life or death) decisions???!?!?!

    I agree with you, I like to plan ahead so that I know what every meal is going to be, as soon as we do something not in my regular routine, it makes me anxious, as stupid as it sounds. So I dread leaving the house for a long period of time too. But it sounds like you could have done a whole lot worse, so don't be so hard on yourself! You did the best you could with what you had. emoticon
