This week some friends and I were talking about healthy living, exercise, diet etc. Miss Northerner has been running lately, and looks awesome. I really wish I could fall in love with running, but I don't think it is going to happen. We both agreed though that we weren't about to put ourselves on a diet though. I mean I love pasta way too much, enjoy an adult beverage and I'm addicted to chips and salsa (I actually gave them up for Lent, and it's killing me!)
So what does this all mean? Well, I know that if I don't want to become elephant size I am doing to have to do some exercise (currently Zumba and walking) and cut corners where I can, go easy on the sauces, I'm a big fan of hamburgers without the bun, and so on. I also can't wait for grilling season to begin so I can load up on veggies and lean protein in the form of beef!
And today I decided no more French Fries, just more wine because of this:
The NY Daily News posted this little article that made me gasp. Calculations are based on a 5-ounce glasses (my serving sizes are usually probably closer to 8-ounces!) and a McDonald's Large Fries.
This one is a shocker too.
Taco Bell Taco Salad with Salsa = 1.25 bottles
I think I'll be sticking with Taco Bells Fresco menu
