Supersize Me

If this is the last post you see for a few days, please call for help. For some reason, I lost my mind, my self control and I ended up devouring a disgusting diet of decadent delights. It was a weekend where my stomach ended up in places where I've warned others not to go. The decisions were made in haste, a lack of planning and laziness to eat foods for their convenience instead of nutritional content. It started out Sunday morning. In a hurry to do some morning activities, I stopped into Roth's to get some donuts. There's no better way to get kids out of bed than to bribe them with a chocolate raised. With a tall cup of home brew, the day did get off to a good start, everything was getting done. Next up, an afternoon birthday party for my son's friend at the golden arches. Alright, what harm could a big mac do, how about a big mac and an extra hamburger. I don't know why a big mac is irresistible to me. These things don't even look or taste like any other hamburger I've ever eaten. If you peer into the kitchen the meat patties are cooked inside little box trays like something out of the Jetson's cartoon. And you got to keep your eye on the fries. Never let them serve you fries that have been sitting around for awhile. If you wait a little bit, there is always another batch of fries boiling in some oil back there. So two burgers with stale buns, steaming fries and a coke for lunch. One refill. By now, my body was getting pretty upset at the garbage I was stuffing into it and my belly was gurgling and moaning as it tried to process the mega calories. But I wasn't done yet. When I got home, proud of my day's accomplishments I took a nap while watching football and eating buttered popcorn. Soon it was after 7p and we hadn't made plans for dinner. How the idea to go to Muchas Gracias came up and why it was approved is a mystery. A carne asada burrito was what I ordered. My wife took one bite of her pollo asada burrito and gave up, the kids didn't even want to look at their taco's. We warmed up some soup for them instead. But being stubborn and from a family where you eat everything on your plate, I ate everything on mine. The gurgling in my stomach soon turned to rumbling and when I woke up in the morning, my belt didn't fit right and the shirt a bit tight. It goes to show how important eating can be to our lives and why we should be careful what we put into our bodies. One disgusting day and it will take three to get back to normal and maybe a week to lose what I gained. It's a shame too because I have been eating so well since my wife got a subscription to Cooking Light magazine. For the past three weeks I've had some really awesome and healthy dinners from recipes in this magazine. If you want to eat well and healthy I suggest trying some of the recipes on their website.

that's ok... we all have those days. lack of time, or money, or we eat poorly for the convenience. its no secret that in our country healthy food is more expensive and more time consuming than food that is nutritionally almost worthless. it's sad, but true. i hope you feel better soon!

it doesnt help that among my extended family i'm having three thanksgiving dinners in three days. now who's belt isn't going to fit right!...........
