Eating poorly is easy

I have been slipping on my eating lately. This morning I actually went to McDonald's for breakfast (2nd time in two weeks). On both occasions (last week and this morning) I was in a hurry and so on and so forth. Still, no excuse.

After I ate and got to the office I decided I needed to read the nutritional amounts of what I just stuffed into me (and is currently making me feel gross). I think I might start doing it before I go --- I'd like to stay I am never going again but realistically I'll probably go back.

Because they screwed up my order again I got a basic egg mcmuffin and I actually only got ONE hashbrown intentionally (takes a LOT of self-control for me, alone in a car, starving, to just get one).

Anyway, calories from JUST that 490, 23g of fat, 1110mg of SODIUM. Wow.

OK, I think I am done with going there for a "quick breakfast".

My "usual" of a sausage egg mcmuffin and two hasbrowns basically adds 280 calories, doubles the fat, and adds another 600mg of sodium (I used to eat that and an ADDITIONAL sausage egg mcmuffin probably twice a week, I guess).

I am currently reading Fast Food Nation and hoping it will put in some solid blocks against getting fast food on anything but a very occasional basis for social reasons or for expediency when it is really appropriate (e.g. 8 hours of hard physical labour preceeded it).
