Did my exercised. Went over 1200 by a bit (was so hungry after dinner and caved and had a 70 calorie protein hot cocoa to tell the stomach to shut up). Water is almost all in (2 cups to go).
I'm not feeling the blogging mojo, but I am thinking that some folks out there are touting how "healthy" the new McD's oatmeal is. Really? Ya think so? Well, I suppose in comparison to a lot of other crap one can pick up to-go in the am. But read this before you buy it, cause, really, how fricken easy is it to have oatmeal at home and really make it wholesome:
How To Make Oatmeal...Wrong
A more accurate description than “100% natural whole-grain oats,” “plump raisins,” “sweet cranberries” and “crisp fresh apples” would be “oats, sugar, sweetened dried fruit, cream and 11 weird ingredients you would never keep in your kitchen.
Since we know there are barely any rules governing promotion of foods, one might wonder how this compares to real oatmeal, besides being 10 times as expensive. Some will say that it tastes better, but that’s because they’re addicted to sickly sweet foods, which is what this bowlful of wholesome is.
The aspect one cannot argue is nutrition: Incredibly, the McDonald’s product contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin. (Even without the brown sugar it has more calories than a McDonald’s hamburger.)
Oatmeal is sure easy to make at home in a large (cheap still) quantity and put in the fridge and dole out for breakfast with a bit of a nuking. Heck, it can be made overnight in a slow cooker or while you're grooming. Easy. Don't need McD's to mess it up for ya...
