So, it's time to reign it back in. One thing I have learned through this journey is never quit. If you mess up, get back on the wagon and keep moving. I'm back on it today and ready to face work tonight.
I was expressing concern to a friend about working around all the food in the food court at Costco and she gave me a suggestion. I'm going to take her advice because I know it's wisdom. She knows me to be a numbers person and an analyzer and because of that she suggested that I learn the calorie content for every item in the food court. She said I need to go in prepared so that when I'm tired, stressed, missing my family and just want to turn to the pizza or ice cream, I will have to face the calorie count.
Calorie Counts for Costco Food Court:
1 Hot Dog w/ Bun 530 cal
1 Slice Cheese Pizza 700 cal
1 Turkey Wrap 810 cal
1 Chicken Bake 810 cal
1 container Non Fat Vanilla Frozen Yogurt 270 cal
1 Slice Comination Pizza 775 cal
1 Slice Pepperoni Pizza 717 cal
1 bowl Caesar Salad 786 cal
All of this information is from http://www.myfitnesspal.com/. I'm told Costco has the nutrition information available so I'll get that tonight & post the real calories tomorrow. I just needed to see this before I went to work tonight. I can't believe this. These calories are so high. I'm going to do my best to stay away from the food there.
