Procrastinating and Ice Cream

It's 11:30 at night and aside from many hours spent back to school shopping at Walmart, I have not exercised yet... and I'm sitting here blogging instead of doing it now...

I had a nap this afternoon so I'm probably going to be up for a few hours yet.  Here's the plan 10 minutes of ab's and then 50 minutes of cardio...  starting as soon as I'm done here.

On the way home from shopping I stopped at McDonalds -- yes I know very, very evil.  I got a dipped cone not knowing for sure how many calories there was going to be.  When she handed it to me I knew I was in trouble. The thing was huge!! It was at least 6 inches tall and 3-4 inches wide but the chocolate was oh so yummy.  So I got about halfway through the chocolate/ice cream and decided to throw the rest away because I'm doing everything in my power to have a totally awesome weigh in this week.  When I looked it up just now I found that the entire concoction is supposedly 270 calories.... ummmm... right and I'm a monkey's uncle.  

In comparing my ice cream cone to the stock image on the website I'm going to say I was served 2-3 times as much as was intended by the calorie information.  Not that I'm complaining, there was a time when that would have made my day.  If at some point in the future I decide to get another one I will definitely make it clear that I want a small portion because wasting really bothers me, throwing it out was hard.

Okay no more procrastinating.  T - 3 days to weigh in, can't wait!

Edit : 51 Minutes, 854 calories burned! Max HR 184, averaged 154.

Week 6 : 21 lbs down, 159 lbs to go
Current Weight : 304 lbs
Start Weight : 327 lbs
Goal Weight : 145 lbs

  1. Good morning Kate! I know what you mean about the ice cream cone. The other day, I was realy craving for a Peacan Mudslide from Dairy Queen. I went with my husband and my son. I shared my mudslide with my husband. I was proud of myself for not eating the whole thing and still got my treat! This was satisfying. They make the servings so huge! It makes me thing the other day when we went to the restaurant. My plate was around 25$ and we could easily eat 3 people out of it. Make it cheaper and reduce the serving!!! So both my waist and my wallet will be happy. Have a wonderful day.
