HYC Check-in

I'll weigh in the morning and update. Today (Monday morning) I was up a bit from my low, but less than one pound. No biggie after a munchie-craving week at TOM. This month is going to stink in that hubs will be in Korea from the 12th-30th. Boooo. We thought it would just be 10 days. Well, maybe we need the distance to appreciate each other more. ;-)

Then right around the time he gets back, my little sister and her kids will be coming to Colorado to stay with us for a few days until her husband flies in and then they'll all go to Breckenridge for a vacation. They sure deserve it. She did a LOT during the past few months of Mom's illness since they live in the same town.

Hey, have you checked out the Calorie King website? It makes searching for fast food items a lot easier than the separate chains' websites, which some of them don't even have. By the way, my FAVORITE onion rings are the towering stack at Red Robin. Yummmm. The stats on those???? Sit down. 1837 calories, 124g of FAT, 160g total carbs. Holy freakin' crap! And yeah, I could eat an entire order by myself! But that's the reason I don't go to Red Robin anymore. Cuz when I walk in there, I can't stop the words from coming out of my mouth to order these suckers!

I sure hope its South Korea. Thanks for the idea of the Calorie King, I will take a look. Wow, haven't had Red Robin before but I will be careful of that.

Oh and congrats on keeping the weight off for the most part.

Holy cow, that's crazy. I'll never forget the day I heard how many g of fat were in a SMALL bucket of movie popcorn: 60g! It's disgusting, but why do I still love it? It's a good thing I only go to the movies... well, once a year lately! I should go more. Just no popcorn :)

Diana said...

LOL. I'm with MF. But, I'd rather know and realize now than to keep on thinking it's only a *little* indulgence.
I haven't heard of that site, had used another in the past though. Thanks for the link!

Y'all will be appreciating each other after that long apart!

I can not get over the calories in those onion rings...wow. That floors me!

You're right, a one pound gain is no biggie. I'm a big fan of the calorieking website. It's a great resource and has nearly everything imagineable and it is a lot easier than looking something up on the individual websites.

Those onion rings wouldn't be bad if that's all you ate for the week. ;)

Karen said...

I love CalorieKing (haha, and hate it when it delivers the news like you just got about the onion rings!!). Maybe try to set a goal for yourself to accomplish in the time while your husband is in S Korea? It could give you something positive to focus on while he's gone.

Tyler said...

I love Calorie King! And thanks for the inadvertent tip that I should stay away from Red Robin because I *loves* me some good onion rings! ;)
