McDonald's McMommy Moment...

I have gone and done it...in fact I did it today...I had a McMommy moment. My dear bloggy friends, I gave into temptation. Standing in a room with chairs in a circle, other peeps staring at me..."My name is Jenny and I had McDonald's french fries and a sprite today, I am a fryspritaholic." other peeps voices, "Hi Jenny, nice to meet you."

I did not have a toddler or a 4 year old in the back seat saying they wanted a happy meal, I gave into temptation all by myself! That is the worst kind b/c there is no real explanation for it.

Will was not in the back saying he wanted some delicious, salty french fries. In fact he will not have them for as long as I can hold it off. Doubt that will happen but I will try.

We are in the middle of chaos in our house, looking for a place to live and well, I just got plain tired of having to make lunches and having my same lunch that I have everyday. I am just being lazy today. Can't I have just one of those days?!


I do not stray much. It keeps me in check with my eating habits. I know it sounds like I have OCD. Same thing, day in day out, turkey sandwich, with spicy mustard to give it a kick (like it really makes a difference!), spinach, white American cheese on whole wheat with sun chips. Yes, I know it sounds very plain but it works. That is how I was able to lose the baby weight along with exercise.

Well, that all went out the window today! Forget it my bloggy friends, I just had to give in to it. It was worth every single salty, yummy for my tummy french fry.


I feel much better now that I have confessed my guilt of McDonald's. Thanks for listening. Now I ask you all out there, have you had one of these moments?

You deserve everyone of those fries! It won't be long now until the only place Will wants to go is McDonalds. Just wait!

I am fighting one of those moments right now. KFC is calling me. At least yours was lunch mine will be at 8:30pm potentially the worst possible time to eat such a thing but I just have to!

Oh...I puffy heart McDonald's french fries. So good...
You are able to treat yourself, hon. It's not like you eat it every day :)
So enjoy those fries and that Sprite and brush the guilt away--all of us mommies go through some sort of bad for you temptation :)

Just wait until Will says McDonalds and points when you pass and you have no idea where he has learned about it!! :) (LOL - that was my daughter!!) My guilty pleasure is a chocolate chip cookie and sweet tea from McAllistar's Deli. Nothing better.

McMommy said...

YESSSSS!!!!! Was that you in back on me in the drive-thru lane??? :)

I think it's a-ok to give in to those moments once in awhile! Especially for someone like you...who exercises for a LIVING!!

Lynette said...

mmm hmmm...yummy french fries. Now I want some. I guess I have to wait until lunch time. I blame you.

Leslie said...

Yup, have them all the time. But Mcdonalds french fries, yummmmm!!! I try not to give in too often. But you just have to. Sometimes. lol! Happy POW!

Krystyn said...

I think you are allowed it every once and while!

And, at least it wasn't a Coke with caffeine, too!

Amanda @ notsoextraordinary said...

Candy said...

ohh yeahh... I crave a caramel Sundae (with LOTS of extra caramel) every time I drive past Mickey D's!

I have my kids so anti-fast food brain washed, my older daughter almost threw up when a girl beside her at school was eating those fries--what sucks for us is I will never get a chance to eat those fries til they go to college now (please eat one for me!) ;)
(Can you believe I threaten my kids with Happy Meals if they don't eat their veggies--talk about brian washed!)
Happy POW

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I too am very boring and eat the same turkey sandwich EVERY day for lunch...also helped get off the baby weight. Don't worry we all need a little bit of mcdonald's fries every once in a while! XO, Clare

Those salty sticks of goodness! They are my weakness too! I like your idea of eating the same thing for lunches. I always get scattered and eat junk or nothing and then eat too much later..hence why I am overweight! :( Gonna your plan of attack! At least you have lost all the baby weight! Good job!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Well... my whole life is one of those moments, so, yeah. I guess that's why you snapped right back into shape and I still have 6 pounds to go. Don't sweat it, girl - you deserve a McBreak!

Funny! Last week I did the same thing. I had a happy meal for lunch, sans toddler. I don't know what got into me. I usually eat fairly healthy, but I just couldn't resist.
