Oh dear... oh dear... oh dear... I was in the McDonald's drive through to get coffee. Yes, coffee is still my sin. Now, I don't usually buy coffee at McDonald's, I usually make my own, but I ran out - one of my errands tonight is to get more. So I'm behind some soccer mom in a minivan waiting to get my plain ol' coffee.
Well the woman in front of me had gotten... something... I don't even know what these things are, they handed her a sack and then they handed her this... drink. It looked like about a half-gallon sized dark chocolate milkshake with about half a pound of whipped topping (don't you dare call it cream because that stuff is 'cream' like the 'spread' in restaurants is butter) and a handful of chocolate chips on top. It was so big she had to reach out with both hands to grab hold of it and I hope she didn't see my forehead hit the steering wheel. That thing looked sugary enough to give me diabetes just from looking at it! Couldn't imagine drinking it!
You just KNOW that people buy something like that and don't ask about the sugar, they ask about the FAT! (If they ask at all.) Oh, CW, you so craaaazy.
Welp, I'm off to buy coffee. I don't want to give Mickey Dee's another dollar tomorrow morning just for the privilege of waiting 5 minutes in line for a cuppa joe.

Eat more and weigh less with Volumetrics - CNN.com
From the intro:
You know what makes more sense? Eating real, nutritious food and eating as much of it as you damn well please.You're no diet dummy -- your "unrealistic" detector is on high alert. Cut out carbs? Fast on herbal juice blends? Please.
So what a relief to rediscover Volumetrics, a way of eating that just plain makes sense.
Just got invited to an event on fb. The event is titled "EAT CANDY to fight cancer".
Description: "Who knew you could help fight against cancer by eating cotton candy, chocolate fondue, and sipping on some chai? Come support us in fighting against cancer for Relay For Life -- an initiative through the American Cancer Society."
I was out walking with my sister in law and couple of her buddies and the topic of diet came up. Normally, I keep my mouth shut and let people delude themselves, 'cause they sure as sin won't hear me. My sister in law mentioned that I'd lost some weight and had more energy, but she could never eat the way I do. The two friends pounced on that and asked what I did. I responded with "The human body is not evolutionarily designed for grains or beans, but for meats, fats, and vegetation."
"Grains are vegetation," the guy responded.
"Dude, if you can go out into the country here and gather up enough grains of wild wheat to make a loaf of bread every week, I might believe you. I just know my body runs better and my thyroid behaves better with no grains or beans."
"That's not what Dr. Oz says, he says you should eat beans everyday because it's healthier than meat."

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
