Bad Choices!

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Yesterday I had lunch with a friend--in town.
We went to Tim Horton's, a popular coffee place in Canada--
I had the Chili---with a roll, coffee and an apple fritter.
After we finished, I asked them for their nutrician Guide--
I shudda asked for that guide BEFORE I devoured the food--
Chilli itself was 300 calories-----Who knows what the buttered roll came in at--the Apple Fritter was 300 calories-----
I could've hadda BBQ Chicken wrap for 190 calories-a vanilla yogurt with berries for 160 calories--and/or, vegetable soup for70 calories.
Needless to say, I had to cut back on what I ate at dinner--
Lesson??---Find out the nutrician Guide BEFORE you go--or --before you eat--
Will I ever learn?

    I need to remember to do this as well!!! I had a big OOPS the other night... I normally stop by MCDonalds a couple times a week and get a small soft serve icecream cone. Calorie wise they are only aroun 150 calorie, and I figure it in to my day... However, the other night we went by Burger King, which has recently started serving soft serve icecream, so we got one and shared it, Thank Goodness I did not eat the whole thing!!! Their icecream has DOUBLE the Calories, and DOUBLE the fat!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!! Needless to say it pays to check ahead of time!!! I hope you are having a great week!!! HUGS!! Shannon

    Good Idea, Jean.

    BTW - We leave tomorrow and DH is not wanting me to take my computer. I understand this request. After all, it is a vacation away from "stuff" and a time to enjoy each other and explore the Islands.

    See you when I get home.
