PITTSBURGH (FFD) - I almost had it in the bag, a win that is, but then that win eluded me. I ended up instead a with a different kind of bag: a bag of McDonald’s junk food.
4 double cheeseburgers, 2 chicken sandwiches, a large french fries and a four piece nugget. That is exactly what I ordered last night, after midnight under the guise of getting coffee at the convenient store because we were out. Yes, dammit, I lied about my food consumption and I hid it from my family.
That means I got serious food issues.
Now then, I didn’t eat all of that ill-gotten fast food booty. I shared it with my dog Coco.
She scarfed a lot of down as I watched a strangely fascinated video on YouTube about NASA’s effort to discover extraterrestrial life, and naturally, getting caught up on football news (Hey, I am trying to write a SciFi book too… For real: The Midas Protocol).
I had trouble sleeping too. Got up late and played catch up all the damn today - today, being Thursday. So what can I do to turn things around?
I am toying with the idea of alternate day fasting, but that has it’s pros and cons too. I think my biggest challenge is to successfully complete this simple DGO of fruits and vegetables during the day and a reasonable amount of good food at night.
Easier said, then done my fat friend. The gym beckons, but so does Thursday night football and I promised a few friends a pit stop. What do I do? Where do I go? Am I in an endless loop of binge eating depravity?
I do okay for a while, but then repeat the same old mistakes. Will I repeat them again tomorrow?
Well, I heard the whistle. It’s time to finish out this drive. I got the ball. Now what do I do with it? That is the question that faces us every day on The Football Fan’s Diet.
