I don’t know why I was so suprised…

to flip the tray liner over at McDonald’s, see the list of nutritional information for all the McDonald’s items and read that the Breakfast Burrito I just ate had 300 calories and 16g of fat.  Woah!  


I really didn’t think it would have 16g of fat, but then again there are morsels of pork sausage and good amount of cheese.  Was it worth it?  Not really?  I know that I could have made breakfast at home and my own version of a breakfast burrito.  I’d make it with a whole wheat tortilla with egg whites and turkey sausage, peppers, onions and low-fat cheese.  That’s definitely on the breakfast menu for next weekend, that and whole wheat pancakes for the kids.

We spent most of the morning and afternoon out and about, we went grocery shopping and then stopped by the mall.  The kids wanted to eat at the mall food court and so we decided we would, it was either food court or Costco.  I struggled with deciding on something to eat.  After the breakfast burrito, I really didn’t want to indulge in a food court meal and then realize that I ate 1000 calories that I really didn’t need to.  But I did end up eating 1/2 an Arby Q sandwich.  It was way too salty to me so I could only eat half of it.  I should have gotten the plain roast beef sandwich instead.  Oh and I ate 3 pieces of sushi – california roll.

I also snacked on some Kernel’s butter salt popcorn.  Looking at the nutritional information online, 5.5 cups of butter salt popcorn has 250 calories, 13g fat and 31g carbs.  I think I had about 2 cups of popcorn so I’m looking at 125 calores, 6.5g fat and 15.5 carbs.  It’s amazing how the little snacks and the light munching really add to your daily calorie intake.

After we got home from the mall, I napped for about an hour and then worked out.  Increased bench press to 75lbs (bar + 15lbs each side), which felt great.  Followed up with a protein shake after the workout and 1 piece of dark chocolate w/ almonds.

Prepared meals for tomorrow: 3 eggs (3 whites, 1 yolk) w/ spinach and cajun shrimp w/ green pepper.


I definitely need to get back on track with my meals.  The plan is to increase my lean protein and cut back on fruit and sugar.

I finally upgraded my cellphone, from the Blackberry Bold 9700 to the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE.  I had fun downloading and installing apps yesterday.  I installed the MyFitness app, but I found that entering my daily food intake and exercises just took too much time.  I’ll give it another week and see if I can regularly update my food/exercise diary.  I’m really not one to use apps on my phone and don’t even use the more common apps like Tasks or Calendar.  I’ve now got a smartphone with so many app capabilities and I should try and take advantage.
