Just Say No: It wasn't a very good week at work, I missed my free weights session tonight, and one of my co-workers has been driving me batty. So driving home, without even consciously thinking about it, I turned into a McDonald's, cruised through the drive-thru and heard myself ask for a small order of fries and a 4-piece chicken Mcnuggets.

I got my order, parked my car, and inhaled all 400 fat-laden calories while listening to XM Radio and watching shady-looking characters cross the parking lot to the Salvation Army shelter across the street.

McRalph: Afterwards, I felt incredibly guilty. I could see for a nano-second why some teenage girls and young women stick their fingers down their throats to, shall we say, expel the evidence. Don't worry, I'd never do that - talk about a waste of food, and by the way, eeeww! I just wish I hadn't eaten the junk food in the first place.

Running Update: Last night, I did do another 45 minutes on an elliptical machine. It felt as if I were running up one very long and very steep hill. I tried to keep it at 60 rpm at level 15, but I wasn't feeling as strong as I did on Wednesday. So I did level 15 for 1 1/2 minutes, then level 14 for 30 seconds, then go back to level 15 again, until my 45 minutes were up.


  1. Eeeeeeeewwwwwwww! Ew for the expelling thing and ew for eating junk food. Ok, no more fries and Mcyuckies.

  2. McDonald's? Have you no shame? Must be one nasty co-worker. The fries are the best but the burgers just have a way of reminding you there is a "better way" to eat. Go back to the martini diet and eat olives, talk about neo-Islamic revolutionaries (the good guys) and kick that elliptical's butt.

  3. uhm... I just happened on your blog and read this post... are you overweight and terrified of being more so? or just neurotic about weight?
