For some reason, momentum comes and goes in waves. Last week was the first week in a LONG time in which I totally nailed it M-F. I planned out my food, suffered through a few hunger pangs...though nothing too serious...and felt better. Since Saturday, it's been a train wreck. Well, maybe not a train wreck...maybe like a mild canoe accident. This weekend there was a pizza incident and since then I haven't felt like planning. My schedule hasn't helped. I'm dealing with a major financial issue that will be worth it in the end but I've been through hell trying to get it done. I've got students coming out of the woodwork looking for help with their grades because it's finals week. And it's one errand after another this week. Blah, blah, blah...excuses excuses. I think I'll do some planning tonight for the rest of the week or at least tomorrow. That always helps me stay on track.
Since I've been busy, I haven't had much time to cook, though hopefully that will change tonight. Ian made grilled chicken kabobs last night from Fresh Market and they were yummy but I ate them so quickly I forgot to take a photo. I wanted to cheat a bit today and tell y'all what I eat at fast food restaurants. It goes without saying that stopping at a fast food chain should be a last resort. In theory, you should eat breakfast at home, pack a lunch and cook a healthy meal for dinner. Well, I don't have kids and I still find that swinging through a drive-thru makes sense if you actually want to eat lunch. I had Jimmy John's yesterday because it was that or skip lunch completely and let me just tell you, I'm not that kind of girl. For the record, I got a #1 no mayo (because I'm a hero) and their Thinny Chips (which are still caloric af). So, what do you all eat at fast food places? I thought I'd share a few go to menu items I get.
Those are just SOME ideas. I'd love to know if you all have any ideas for the drive-thru or tips at restaurants. Like, can anyone tell me how NOT to eat chips and queso at a Mexican place? The only way I think I'm ever going to resist is if I'm handcuffed at the table. Cinco de Mayo is Friday and I know how that ends for me. Margaritas and Queso for everyone! Well, that's all. Happy May everyone!
