So sorry everyone that I haven't posted in a while!!! Things have been CRAZY!!! I leave Sunday! WOHO!!!!  As far as eating goes I've been eating kinda what you've already seen so I haven't posted new stuff haha.  Another place I've been eating at is Spoons, which is only here in Fort Collins, but it's super good!! It's a soup and salad place and everything is always fresh!!! It's FANTASTIC!  Anyways I just wanted to stop by and say hello, and hope all is going well with everyone out there!!!! Have a good day!!

So I went to McDonalds for lunch today and got a McDouble and a fruit and yogurt parfet, along with a large iced tea.  It was supper yummy and just enough!! If you tend to be more hungry than that then go for a salad but be careful because a lot of their dressing has a lot of calories in it!!  My meal was 550 calires, I know a lot for just those two things, but the McDouble sounded sooooo good!!! haha

Anyways other than that things have been going well!  I lost 3 lbs!  Could be from all of the packing and really not eating that much, I know bad for me but I am really just not hungry!! So it's ok for me to have 550 calorie meals!!  I hope everything is going well with everyone out there!!  I never hear from anyone so not sure if anyone is reading any more!!!  Anyways, I'll chat with all of you later!

Taco Bell

So I tackeld Taco Ball for my fast food eating out adventure and it wasn't too bad!!  I got the fresco ranchero chicken soft taco, a side of mexican rice and a strawberry fruista freezer!  Total meal was 500 calories!!  Now it was filling for the time, but if I would have been hungrier I would have done 2 burritos instead of the burrito and fruit freezer, but I really wanted something nice and cool!!  Taco Bell is an excellent choice for eating out healthy!!  Their new drive-thru diet menu is fantastic so I highly recommend it!  Not to mention their salsas have very little calories so use what ever you want!!


So I did it, I auditioned for glee haha!  This was a huge jump for me cause I don't like singing infront of people too much haha, but I have vowed that this year it's going to be a new me, so I did this!!  go check it out and PLEASE vote for me!!!

Snack time!

So yesterday while I was out and about doing laundry I got kinda hungry but not hungry enough for a full meal.  So I looked at the options around me and the only place really was McDonalds.  So sat and thought about what I could get just for a snack form there....french fries = bad, McDouble = bad (for just a snack), cookies = bad, apple pie = bad....Then the thought came to me!  They have the fabulous fruit and yogurt parfait!!!!!  160 calories = Not bad! haha!  And not to mention the great nutritional value that yogurt haves for your digestive system!  So I got that and a Large iced tea (non sweetened, if you want to sweeten it do so with equal or splenda!).  Now if you really want some sort of pop/soda go for the diet coke, but I really hate diet coke haha.  Also, not to scare you away from it, but in several of my classes I have learned that your body just does not metabolize aspertaine and it stays in your system and yuck, don't wana deal with that haha.  So this total snack came to $2.13  so not bad at all haha!  Today I"ll prob have another one of those sub sandwiches that I got from the store the other day and play it up like I did then too...So have a good day everyone and healthy eating!!

*Side note!  I did 2 whole pushups today!!  I know it doesn't sound like much but that's the most I've been able to do since my hand/wrist surgery back in December so it's deff a step!!*

Eating out challenges

So since I'm going to be doing this whole eating out thing for the next few weeks I did some investigating at different fast food places on their nutritional information.  Right now I'm mainly looking at the calorie count - I'll pull my hair out if I try to look at everything right now!   So I really plan on printing all of these out while on campus this week because I still have like over 200 pages left of free printing in the botany/zoology building!  So I'll put it to good use! haha! Anyways, my healthiest options that I found so far was subway and surprisingly taco bell.  Now I'm really not a fan of taco bell but I guess I gotta do what I gotta do haha!

Today I ran to the grocery store because I needed some milk and I decided to look in their prepared food section to see what they had to offer.  I found a pack of 3 sub sandwiches - 2 turkey and one roast beef - for $5!  I had to jump on this because these sandwiches are equivalent to that of subway's!  Sure there was no lettuce on them or anything but in my fridge I have a thing of salad!  So I had one of these sandwiches tonight and found out that the trio comes with packets of mustard and mayo!  So I used one of each - that little bit of mayo is fine!  Then I added some of my salad mix to it!  It was yummy!  Deff a good purchase! How many calories are we talking about?  Prob around 450-500 calories, which I know is more than my meals that I make on my own, but that's the range that I'm going to be shooting for during this whole eating out thing.  I'll just cut down on other's during the rest of the day and it should work out just fine!!  Anyways take care everyone and I'll post later!!

Going in a different Direction

Ok guys, so I'm going to have to go in a new direction with this blog for a little while so stick with me haha.  Since school is so crazy right now with finals right around the corner and I'm getting ready to move to Florida I need to start packing.  So this weekend I"m planning on packing up most of my kitchen...scary I know!!  So I'm going to be eating out now - but I"m going to try to do it as healthy as possible.  I'll blog about that and the different things you can do with eating out.  I'll be mainly doing to go and fast food, so good luck to me haha!  I can actually start with today

So for Dinner tonight I didn't want to cook cause I had a lot of studying to do so I went by McDonalds and looked over the various choices in food and tried to pick out the most healthy thing I could.  So I went with the bacon ranch salad.  When I got home I looked up the calories - the salad with out the dressing is 260 - not bad!  The dressing though is 170 calories for the packet - YIKES!  But I still ate it haha.  so all in all the calories came to 430 calories for my dinner.  Ok so that's not too horrible!

I'm still trying to finish cleaning out my pantry so my plan is to eat out once a day, and then the rest of the day try to finish up what I do have that doesn't need to be cooked.  So we're talking like slimfast shakes for breakfast or cereal, and who knows what else the rest of the day.  I'm going to leave out a couple of bowls and some silver wear and cups.  My biggest thing I wana get packed is my pots and pans.  So yeah, I hope you all enjoy these new posts!
