Everybody's Fast Food Fighting (to the tune of Kung Fu Fighting)

Everybody is doing the Fast Food meme.  To be honest, I just don't eat fast food all that often, maybe once a month.  Ironically, it's usually just not that convenient for me.  That and I'm not usually a big french fry fan.  ::shrug::  It's extremely hard for me to leave my office during the work day, so I pack a lunch.  Usually it's leftovers from the night before. 

However, I definitely share the other problems and causes of America's expanding waistline.  Portion control!  I have very little, control that it, not little portions!  I'll snack when bored.  All those little detrimental ingrained eating habits that add up to a lot, a lot, a lot.  I don't cook as healthily as I should.  And of course, I lead a sedate lifestyle.  I sit in front of a computer all day at work and basically do the same at home.  It doesn't matter what you eat, if you eat a lot of it and do very little exercise.


Fast food places I've eaten at in the last year and what I ate.
Taco Bell - 2 Chalupas with a crispy taco on the side.   <--no regrets 'cause it kicked ass.
Church's - Fried Chicken Family Meal with cole slaw, corn, biscuits & mashed potatoes.  The mashed potatoes are lame and as much as I like fried chicken, after a piece or two I don't want to even smell it.
Subway - 6" Turkey sub with Baked Doritos (nacho cheese)  I hardly think of Subway as fast food.  It's probably healthier than my own cooking.
Chick-fil-A - Chicken sandwich with waffle fries.  Waffle fries are way better than regular fries.
Sonic - Bacon Cheeseburger meal with Tater Tots.  Tots-new hotness.  Fries-old & busted (MIB2 ref)  Though I gotta say that about 30 minutes after a burger, I tend to regret it. 
Jack in the Box - Spicy Chicken sandwich with spicy fries.  Fast food spicy is good.  Too bad the food is so bad for you!  Though as the occasional treat, I think one can indulge. 
KFC - Family Meal, original recipe.  Hmm, I think I may have had hot wings sometime in the last year.  I like hot wings.  See, more of the fast food spicy goodness!  I think I don't like original recipe anymore.  So salty and soft.  Bleh. 

Well, dang.  When you add it up, it looks like a lot!  And no salads to speak of!  I know that I went to Subway at least a couple of times and we did Churches for dinner at least 3 times over the last year.  Hmm, I think we may have ordered a pizza sometime.  Possibly Domino's, but that's rare as Cliff isn't much of a pizza fan.
