YEAH BABY!!! Take THAT you stupid scale.
Ahem. I might be the tiniest bit overwrought...
In case you missed the unholy fit I threw yesterday, I sneaked an early peek at the scale and that lying jerk gave me a 159. What the...??? Fortunately, when I got on the scale this morning (after drinking massive coffee and water to counteract any water retention that might have been mucking about with me), it said 156.
Now I'd have preferred a 155. But perhaps that's for next Thursday.
It's good to have goals.
In other news, I totally broke with a lifetime habit and ordered a salad at McDonald's.
No lie. In all my days I have never once eaten a McDonald's salad, and I believe it's safe to say that in the past twenty years I haven't had anything but a burger from there... and usually it was a quarter pounder. Possibly a double quarter pounder.
Crap, I'm making myself hungry.
But anyway, I went out to dinner tonight with the boys, my folks, and my nephew (age 3). The Elder had his turn to pick, so he went with Mickey Dee's. I'd usually have gotten a Happy Meal considering I'm in full-on caloric meltdown, but I already had Subway for lunch and knew that would put me over the top of my range, so I hit the internet and scouted out the salads.
I ended up with the grilled chicken bacon ranch salad (260 calories) with the creamy southwestern dressing (100 calories). Not too shabby. It was even relatively tasty. Now I'm sure the sodium in that sucker is going to kick my ass, but it's better than the burger, which I might as well have just duct taped to it.
Perspective. It's a good thing.
