Feeling great!

Friday, December 01, 2017

Traveling to visit my friend in the hospital was supposed to be an hour drive, but due to road construction turned into a 1 1/2 hour trip.

Because the lunch hour rolled around while on the road, we (another friend & I) stopped @ McDonalds for lunch. I ordered a grilled chicken snack wrap, medium fries & a sweet iced tea. The snack wrap & tea filled me up. The fries got kicked to the curb. (actually I gave them to my friend who was more than happy to take them.)

I'm not sure why, but I think the lack of fries has something to do with me subconsciously calculating calories, carbs, fat, protein, & fiber in the back of my mind & how much exercise it would take to burn off the calories.

The reason doesn't really matter, what matters is that I did it... I ate a relatively healthy meal @ a fast food restaurant & don't feel guilty about what I ate.

    Glad for you for giving those fries to your friend!

    YES! I have found that I do count the amt. of exercise I would need to work a desired food off. Sometimes it just isn’t worth it!

    Good job!

    It sounds as if you did well. Slow and steady wins the race (I am told, LOL).

    Good choices on your meal. The grilled chicken wrap and giving up the fries made this turn into a very healthy meal for you.

    When most of us go to a fast food restaurant, we would normally order a burger/fries. Lots of calories and fat. Congratulations on making the right choice.
