I've been spending most of my mornings at Panera Bread Company having a muffin top or a bagel as I have my quiet time. I use between 260-330 calories depending on what I order. I did a little research tonight on alternative breakfast places to break up the monotony and was utterly shocked at how many calories things list out. Anyone who eats the McDonald's Big Deluxe breakfast is going to have 1200 calories. This is more than what I have for my 3 meals combined. My few breakfast choices would include the Egg McMuffin(300 cal.), an egg biscuit(330 cal.) or 2 scrambled eggs with a hashbrown(320 cal.). Chickfila's chicken biscuit tops out at 420 cal. and I like to get it with egg so that would be about 500 calories.
My problem is that I like to snack at night. I'm happy having 300 calories for breakfast, less than 400 for lunch leaving about 800 for dinner.
I really was thinking about getting that glazed cinnamon roll that I normally get on Thursdays, but better not. From what I've researched they go anywhere from about 400-700 calories.
It definitely helps to plan things out. I think a person gets in trouble when they fail to plan. I already have my lunch lined up and it is only about 200 calories. Maybe I could get that cinnamon roll.......
1o days straight at 1500 calories or less. Didn't make the treadmill tonight as I had to tend to my 19 month old son. It is almost 10pm and I think the boy finally quit crying and I'm beat. Time for rest!
