"I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter M&M's and like 3 pieces of licorice."
-Cher from Clueless
{one of my all-time favorites fyi}

If only I had eaten as much as Cher.... do you ever have those days where you turn around and think, "Oh. My. Hannah. What have I done?? How many calories have I really eaten today?" Ok and know when I say that that I'm not one of those calorie counting freaks, I'm not a vegetarian, or even much of a nutrition guru. At the end of last night I found myself going over in my head what I had eaten and literally felt ill. Should I list this out for you? I'm actually crazy embarrassed about this but here goes...

I started the morning out with a nutritious breakfast burrito at McDonald's, removing most of the tortilla so I didn't eat so many carbs right? 280 calories.

Then I had to get bottle of water at Top Stop and saw those little packages of powdered donuts and thought, "what the hay? I never have those, I think today is the day." 380 calories... yuuup.

For lunch I had a Jamba juice gift card so I got my favorite, the Chunky Strawberry, and decided since it was my lunch I should get the 16 oz instead of the 12. 360 calories.

Then Dave and I decided to go see Avatar. (Yup folks, finally saw it and liked it a lot. Thought the plot was weak and overused honestly, but the scenes were breathtaking and totally imaginative). Before the movie we went to Crown Burger and I had a little more than half of a cheeseburger and a little more than half of our onion rings totalling around 700 calories!!! Gosh think if I'd eaten the whole thing...

Then at the movie our wonderful friends bought popcorn and a whole bag of delicious peanut butter M&M's... I guesstimated I downed about 800 calories there - and that's an educated guess from scouring the Internet.

So GRAND TOTAL equaled over 2,500 calories... and NONE of those calories were healthy (except maybe a few in the Jamba). You'd think after our great lesson on Sunday about physical and spiritual healthiness I would know better! The worst part is how gross you feel when you've just eaten crap all day, and I'm still feeling it today!

Better luck with the rest of the week Mrs. Smith...

You crack me up. I have definitely had more than my fair share of those days! Sometimes I find that getting it in writing really does help and keeps me on track day to day, so no embarrassment, ya hear!!

Cute post girl.
