Buyer’s Remorse: The Extra-Long Chili Cheese Coney Dog

I’ve been working until midnight the last couple of weeks. Because of that, it’s been a little difficult to eat healthy when we have our lunch breaks. I use the word lunch loosely here because I let my group take their “lunch” break around 7:30pm which, when compared to my normal eating habits, is really a late dinner . (I know, that makes me sound like an old man, doesn’t it?) .

For a few days I was doing good. I planned ahead and brought a sandwich and chips for lunch from home. That didn’t last though. I got lazy and stopped bringing my lunch in. One of those nights, I stopped at Jack-in-the Box on the way home at around 12:15am. The next night, it was the local donut shop. Monster Tacos and chocolate-frosted, old-fashioned donuts really aren’t the best thing for you when you’re going to go to sleep thirty minutes later.

My dinner this evening around 7:45pm:

An “Extra Long Chili Cheese Coney Dog”, large tater tots, and Route 44 iced tea. That’s a lot of food to put in my 170 pound body. Yes, it tasted good. However, I did what you should NEVER DO AFTER eating out… I checked out the nutrition info for that coney dog at Sonic’s website.

Looks like I found my motivation to head back to the gym.

I’ll let you know how that works out.

what you left out for your readers is that you got enough donuts to have them both as a midnight snack and breakfast. small but important detail.
