Defn: a human male displaying evidence of devolution - exhibits distinctive "caveman-like" tendencies. This man often dribbles in public places; cannot drink a beverage without spilling it on himself, the floor or someone else; may also run into objects like lampposts & bushes; has a definite "sloopish & short legged" running style that is slow and low to the ground, often resulting in the dragging of knuckles.

These throwback neanderthals, along with their questionable diet, should clearly be avoided.

I need therapy

Not the type after running - although the achy knees are giving me grief still, some days more than others - today being one of those.

Nor the type of therapy necessary for being on the wrong end of this.....
I eat like crap - I am hoping this will be therapeutic,  releasing,  most likely stupid of me to write down what I ate yesterday - my Mother would not be proud.  Not just because of what I ate - which is more expected of my 12 year son.  But because I ate all the following all on the same day.
  * Marshmellow Mateys (generic Lucky Charms) for breakfast.
  * 2 cups of coffee (my kids won't drink this - yet)
  * A dozen or so Triscuits - probably not too bad, but it's all downhill from here......
  * Chinese Food for lunch - Beef and vegetables.
  * A full bag of Jelly Beans - took about 1/2 hr at most
  * 'Bout an hour later had a Oats-n-Honey bar - I had to try and stop the sugar wobblies going on.
  * Later that day / evening was at the kids soccer tryouts (more on that another time).  That finished at 8 pm.  Needed to feed a kid after - so Wal-Mart was closest.  I'm not the smartest I know.
  * Some potato fries and fried chicken, washed down w/ a bottle of Coke.  I know - WalMart food, likely was sitting out all day under a heat lamp.

Woke up this morning and felt like crap.  Usually I can run and sweat it off.  So, 6 miles at  super slow / slug pace.  That didn't help.  Still feeling like crap. 

Dear Doctor Whoever, please make it go away.  I promise to eat a Salad for lunch, maybe even some fruit - if you would just make my gut stop hurting.

For those you have read this far on this post - sorry for wasting your time, I really don't have days like that very often and I eat good and right most of the time, yesterday was just one of those days and today I suffer for it.    I am supposedly a grown-up and should know better. 

Oh look, a cupcake......


  1. Actually, sans the cereal and the jelly beans ... it seems okay to me.

  2. We don't have kiddos, so this is only an observation: The big challenge I see is the crazy, hectic schedule you guys have to crank out with the kids these days. With that comes the need to (sadly) eat on the run a lot, which in turn puts a lot of processed foods in front of you regularly. Tough one. Might have to plan out some healthier choices and maybe keep a small cooler on hand with some decent things to eat "on the fly". Just a thought for something small to try.
