Fast Food Calorie Quick Reference

Have you ever noticed that no matter how hard you try, something consistently tries to derail your progress?  For me, it's fast food.  It's so quick and easy and most importantly - I don't have to cook it!!  But as we all know, fast food isn't the best choice when it comes to eating healthy or trying to lose weight.

So, here's what I came up with a while ago to help me at least make better choices when it comes to eating on the run.  I mean, let's face it - it's going to happen, so why not be prepared?  The original list has cute little logos next to each restaurant's name, but due to the limited formatting here, I had to take those out.  Anyway, I realize there are healthier choices at some of these places, but these are the foods I'm happy to eat - not foods that I have to "force" myself to consume.

Also, none of these include beverages - if I eat out, the least I can do is drink water, right?  Finally, the REALITY CHECK at the bottom of the chart is just to remind me how many calories are in the foods I usually choose...

Oh btw, I did get the new workout in today.  My goal for Thursday's workout is to write down the weight I'm using so I can track it.  Also, I find that I can't max out on leg press - my BowFlex doesn't have enough resistance, so I may have to come up with a new exercise for quads in addition to leg extensions.  Almost forgot this bit too - I took today off work so I could take my pup to the vet and FORGOT to put on the FuelBand until NOON!!! Can you believe it?  UGggh!!   I think I would have made it though because I'm at almost 1900 now.  Ah well, live and learn...
