Jun 30, 2008 What's Going On
I just posted an Open Letter to Regal Cinemas over at NYC Moms Blog. In short, we went to see WALL*E yesterday, and while the movie was fantastic, the movie-going experience just gets more expensive and more annoying. But I daresay it’s worth it for this movie. Go see it as soon as you can. I’ll be posting a review later today tomorrow, hopefully.
After going overboard with popcorn and M&Ms at the movie yesterday, I vowed to get back on the wagon this morning with eating well. I lost 25 pounds last September and October, and would like to lose more. I do best with short-term goals, so I vowed to lose ten pounds in the month before BlogHer. With 2.5 weeks and six pounds to go, I’m a little behind schedule, so I was committed this morning…until after I dropped my son off for his first day of summer camp.
Burger King breakfasts are a huge temptation for me. Luckily, there’s no Burger King in my part of Brooklyn. The closest one is more than a mile away and doesn’t have a drive-thru, and is kind of dirty and unwelcoming. So I never go there. But there is a Burger King on my way back from summer camp. I had forgotten it was there. I pulled in, thinking I would just get a croissan’wich, 300 calories. I’d still be fine for the day. But then I impulsively ordered hash browns. When she asked what size, my brain said small, but medium came out of my mouth. And then, to top it all off, my daughter didn’t eat the last third of her sandwich, and I finished if off. My 300 calorie treat had become over 800 calories. On a whim. It was 9:30 in the morning and I had already had over 1,000 calories. Not a great way to start a Monday. Now I’m going to have to be extra careful all day, so that the day isn’t a complete disaster. The one good thing about fast food? It fills me up for far longer than healthy food, so I won’t even be thinking about eating for a long time.
