Comments and feedback is very important to the success of this blog. Enough about that. On to my new post titled: Fast Food Failure.
You ever had one of those days that you crave every single fast food restaurant available in town? If you answered no to this question, I am willing to bet that you have never had fast food. Today was that day for me. For lunch, I craved 6 fast food restaurants today and went to 5 of the 6 and took pictures to prove it.
I had a mean craving for a pressure cooked and deep fried in peanut oil spicy Chic-Fil-A sandwich on a buttery toasted bun topped with a sliced pickle and cheese, a side of large waffle fries dipped in Polynesian sauce and a large lemonade. I knew to not go on a Sunday due to Founder and extremely rich owner Truett Cathy's strong Southern Baptist background. He believes that you should never become so committed to financial success that you abandon your principles and priorities. This is very honorable in my eyes but unfortunate to my taste buds. When I want to eat Chic-Fil-A the craving does not leave just because its Sunday! Come on! So what do you think I did? If you answered went to other fast food restaurants that don't have strong religious ties to their business model. You are right!!! Congratulations you are starting to learn my very predictable personality.
Next craving I had was Burger King where you can have it your way. I drove up to Burger King and got out of the car and it smelled like I was in Flame Broiled heaven. While I was walking up to the restaurant I imagined myself eating a Double Whopper with cheese no onions and light on the lettuce. A medium fry and a medium coke. Better yet, since I would be eating such a large burger that requires me to hold with both hands, I would just order a Large Diet Coke. That's for all you health freaks reading this and gasping in disbelief and disappointment.

My next stop was McDonald's. I saw so many chubby kids with snotty noses and ketchup stains on their clothes running around in the play area. Way to work of that Big kids happy meal kid! Keep climbing! You can burn about 10 more calories if you jump from the top of the slide! That advice is free to you mom, don't worry about paying me , I don't work here. My menu items are 2 double cheeseburgers. No Ketchup. No Mustard. Add Big Mac Sauce. Medium fry and a small strawberry shake. I love the triple thick shakes that you cant even suck through the straw until they melt. Drives me wild. Ohhh!!! and Apple Pies are 2 for $1.00.
|McDonalds Bod-Dop-Bop-Ba-Baaa! I'm lovin it!|
|Pizza Hut. Gather 'Round the good stuff!|
|Popeyes. Love that chicken from Popeyes!|
Final stop was Wendy's. "Its better than fast food, It's Wendy's." Wendy's was the most popular fast food restaurant that I actually ate during my weight-loss journey. On Tuesday and Thursday I decided against taking a bag lunch to work. I would walk to the closest Wendy's near my job which was exactly 1.4 miles away from my job. I was able to clock 2.8 miles and walk at a 3.0 speed which burned around 650 calories when I was 380 pounds. I would order a spicy chicken sandwich plain and a 5 piece spicy chicken nugget with no sauce. Those 2 menu items were 555 calories. i was able to net 95 calories by walking to Wendy's and ordering those items. However today was different. I wanted to go all the way on the dark side. May I have a Double Baconator with a large fry and a small frosty?
