At the weekend whilst in town with the kiddos, I had a craving.
Of the worst kind.
And since I knew the family would go for it, I suggested we went there for lunch.
Whopper, fries and diet Coke.
What was I thinking?
Sure, I could have gotten a salad or skipped the fries or NOT GONE IN THERE!
But no, I had it all.
And before you mock my choice of diet Coke alongside my crappy burger and fries, that was not a health-conscious decision. Honestly, I cannot stand full-fat Coke. It makes my teeth feel icky. Eww.
And the worst part of it was – I did not even enjoy it.
Not one mouthful.
I was expecting to sit down and salivate over a big juicy burger.
It just wasn’t happenin’.
The burger was luke warm.
The lettuce was limp with hard chunks from the core, the tomatoes squishy and over-ripe.
The fries were cold.
I felt disappointed. And weighed down.
Oh, and if you are a fellow Slimming World’er, then let me tell you the damage.
Burger King Whopper (no cheese) = 32.5 syns
King fries (regular) = 11.5 syns
Holy fat suit, Batman!
But, this is good.
I got this stupid craving out of my system, and I won’t be doing that again.
Today is a new day. A clean slate.
I am BACK ON IT!
Have you done this? Have you ever had an insane craving for something crap… and you think it will be totally awesome… and it’s totally not? That sucks.
