Damage Control

Stayed up too late last night and attempted to get up early. I say "attempted" because I set my alarm for 6:00 with the intention of doing a run this morning. However, I'm not a morning person anymore and I kept pushing that snooze button until it became apparent that not only was I not getting up early ... I was now going to be late. GRRR

Luckily I had showered before bed, but I didn't have enough time to prepare breakfast ... or lunch - not even a cup of tea. I realized this problem as I was driving my son to school.

So ... what does a healthy, fit person do? Well, probably not what I did. Yep, I succummbed to the golden arches .... got myself not only a Sausage McMuffin with egg (and don't forget the gooey, processed cheese) but also the greasy Hashbrown.

I won't lie, it tasted awesome! But 1/2 an hour later (and I think still now, 5 hours later) I feel like an awful bloated mess.

So I'm on damage control for the rest of the day. For lunch I went to subway and had a roasted chicken salad. And tonight will probably be a veggie stir fry with pasta and maybe shrimp.

I could throw the whole rest of the day away, but it's not worth it - I am worth it!

Snooze is my nemesis! Although it ALWAYS wins..ggrr! Don't beat yourself up over your golden arches breakfast. You're doing fine! Keep up the good work!
