Hump Day Miscellany – Better!

1). Let me just apologize for the picture in my last post.  Those are just fluffy bits of lovely cotton, you know.

I’m better – almost 100%!  I didn’t workout today but I also didn’t sleep.  I didn’t take any cold meds.  I am almost all better and so very grateful for that. 

2).  Does  anyone who watches food advertisements on TV really think “YUM!”  I mean really – does greasy pasta drowning in cheese sauce with a side of garlic, butter infested bread sticks look good?  How about lobster swimming in 2 pounds of butter with a side of fish covered in cream sauce and a baked potato with sour cream?  Tasty?   GAG!  The mind boggles until I think about the endless reports of obesity in this country.  Well duh!  If people really think eating like that is a good idea then no wonder we are a nation of lard asses.

3).  Oceanside is a mere 4 weeks away and I am trying not to panic about it.  Not that I’m really panicked.  I could “do it” tomorrow but it would suck and it would not be worth the price  of admission.  Between the rain and the cold I have not been able to get in the training on the bike that I really, really need. I’m sure I could have been working harder on the trainer doing intervals but what concerns me is the hills and to be a good climber you need to climb.  And climb I will – just as soon as I can.  I just hope it is soon enough.

    We went to TGIFridays the night before Robert left for deployment and everything, I mean EVERYTHING was fried. I had two (not one, but two) breadsticks with my salad, and they had been fried. Why? Just to be a little crunchy? Who would eat that???
    Then Santi ordered a cheese burger and – you’ll ever believe this but I swear it’s true – the cheese on the burger had been separately battered and fried before being put on the burger. What the?????
    On top of all that, the portions of that sh*t were huge.
    Don’t get me wrong, I love food and I love to eat. But I was completely grossed out.
    I will never go there again.
    I should have taken pictures.
