In December 2006 I decided to not eat fast food (mainly McDonalds) anymore. The last time I had McDonalds was December 26th 2006 – I had breakfast with my stepsister Mel in Hibbing. I went all of 2007 without Mickey D’s and I would have to say that I am happy. I don’t really miss it. Sometimes I crave some chicken nuggets, but overall I am good. As far as other fast food, I did go to Burger King around 3-4 times early 2007 – Jan/Feb time frame, but since then I haven’t hit anything like that, Taco Bell, Arby’s, etc. Although I will have to admit sometimes it is hard to find a place to grab a bite, say if you are traveling, on the side of the road, that IS NOT fast food.
On a side note, in late September I heard October was Vegetarian Month, so I decided to try not to eat meat for all of October, and, believe it or not, I did it, and no, I did not die.
The year without fast food added in with walking around PDX like crazy, plus running (oh yeah, I started that again in PDX – for another post), I did lose some pounds, which is always a good thing..
Now just to not drink as much beer, give up wings and pizza and I will be really good… :)
