Last week I went on a pub run – five miles and four pubs.
My trainer, Mel, had sent me a text earlier wishing me luck and then asking me how it went. It felt good to tell her that I only drank 1/2 a beer and 1 mimosa.
After the run we had 30 minutes to get to church and no one had eaten. I planned on a change of clothes and grooming items, but not healthy food.
No one will ever know!
So we paid a visit to our old fast food chain friend, McDonald’s.
I ordered a 10 piece Chicken McNugget meal with Diet Coke, which I split with my husband.
Before I even took one bite my daughter, Rylee, said, “Mommy, didn’t your coach say you couldn’t eat McDonald’s?”
“Uh…well…” Busted by my five-year-old! Doh!
“Aren’t french fries junk food? Will your coach be mad at you?”
“Well, she knows I did a pub run today…” Why am I trying to justify a McDonald’s coverup to my child?
“And that’s soda. You said soda was bad. Why are you drinking it then?”
My husband enjoyed watching me squirm in my seat. I was trying to think of a semi-rational thing to say but just decided to fess up. “Oh, you’re right. I should not be eating this. Next time I’ll plan better.”
I sent a text to Mel. “I’m pretty sure McDonald’s is not on my meal plan…I’ll do cardio penance tomorrow.”
“If only it were that easy, LOL!”
When I went to my next training session I told her about what Rylee said and she laughed. “You know I pay your kids to nark you out, right?”
Anyway, I’ve been pretty good with my diet the rest of the week. A few sneaked handfuls of popcorn, but no more McDonald’s or soda. Today I stumbled across this pic on two of my friends’ FB page and thought it was applicable:
So, when you go out this weekend just remember: Stay away from the fries…or at least don’t eat them in front of my daughter! 😉
What’s your favorite junk food?
