Adventures In Fatcastle…
You will never guess what happened today! Only seriously, you’ll never guess…okay I’ll tell you! I got to chalk up one point to myself against the Fatty Food Monster! Granted, the monster did earn 4 points today… At least I got one for myself! Let me just break down for you what exactly happened in our back and forth brawl.
I’m certain you will not be surprised when I say that I woke up this morning and, yes, made my way to the couch and began flipping through the brain garbage that is television. And next, even less surprising, I opened up the laptop and got my morning fix of Pinterest! How could I not? Feeling slightly disappointed in myself from my Subway breakdown the day before, I decided to have another go at finding something healthy to make for breakfast. When I came across a little treat they call “Cinnamon Sugar Toast,” I decided, why not attempt this? It requires 4 ingredients and is practically fool-proof! One problem…it was definitely not healthy. Forgetting about yesterday’s endeavor, I made my way to the kitchen to cook up this seemingly simple snack. NOT SO SIMPLE, I mean! I burned the toast, suffered from cinnamon overload, and went into sugar shock! It made for a nice nap though! Fatty Fail #1 for the day.
Then at lunch time, as if the monster hadn’t breathed its fatty fire enough, I opened the pantry, defeated from my cooking attempt to see my arch nemesis…RAMEN NOODLES! The last package sat there, laughing in my face as I tried to avoid eye contact. It was as if all of my willpower was dwindling before my eyes! I felt my hands begin to pick up the notoriously salty and calorie packed noodles before I could stop them! Within what seemed like 5 seconds, I was slurping down the chicken flavored goodness, clogging my arteries with each taste. I had inhaled a saltier yet equally satisfying forbidden fruit as the double chocolate chip cookie heaven from the previous day. Fatty Fail #2.
The GRAND Finale! Yes folks, we have reached that time where I tell you about how I conquered that Fatty Food Monster and chalked up a point for the home team! Grabbing my running shoes, I quickly made my way to the treadmill without looking back at that package of Oreos crying out for me! 9 minutes and 45 seconds later I was out of breath and out of caffeine. Without a second thought I grabbed the last 90 calorie Coke out of the refrigerator and chugged it within literally 20 seconds. I know…Fatty Fail #3…only that’s not the end of it. My taste buds were craving something that would require me to get out into the real world … the real world of McDonalds. It was time for an ICE CREAM CONE! That sugary swirl stacked on top of a perfectly crunchy cone satisfied my fatty craving for a sweet treat after a nice mile jog. Fatty Fail #4. I think that’s a new record. Fatty Kelsey 1 … Fatty Food Monster 4. I guess I’ll just have to do better next time! (But probably not…)
