Belated Random Wednesday: French fries on salads, Fat Jokes, and Tony Stewart

Happy Belated Random Wednesday (I know it's Thursday),

I had planned on a post yesterday, but I was beat. I snuck in a nap after my 3 morning clients and then I had an afternoon with some of the young ladies at church. We went to an Assisted Living Facility to paint nails.


I forgot to mention something from my Mission Trip. When we were out to dinner in Helen, GA (which I totally want to go to again) I saw something on the menu. I almost died.

Look closely and read what is included in the Pittsburgh Salad: topped with waffle fried. WHAT????  French fries on a salad. Are you serious?  Why bother at that point?


The other day I couldn't find my patella straps before I was heading out for the day. I just about lost my mind. I mean it really got under my skin. I checked the 3 bags that I had at the gym about 100 times. I called the gym. I went crazy. I had planned on a weights workout so it wouldn't be too bad, that day, but I was super preoccupied. My warm up was very light on the elliptical because it's less impact on the knee.

I found my straps under my flip flops thankfully. I can't let anything keep me from my progress.


I was given a bag of veggies at church on Sunday. Corn. Tomatoes. Peaches. Onions. Zucchini. It is exciting.

I made a Jennie-O Turkey burger with a nice big ol slice of a tomato on it...with some quacamole. Oh heck yeah!


The other day I saw a commercial for Last Comic Standing. In the 30 second blurb the comedian was talking about his overweight relative who says she doesn't exercise because of her bad knees. His response: I think your knees are doing a good job considering. *insert laughter*

I was hot under the collar for so long after this. First of all, why are fat jokes ever acceptable?  Second of all, making jokes about other people is so wrong. Third of all, if you ask me that's just public bullying.

By all means, let's make fun of someone who most likely has low self esteem and feels like they are in a hopeless situation.  But, if it gets a laugh well then good for you. I'm glad you feel it was worth damage you've done to your relative.


I missed national ice cream day and national junk food day.


Grrr...thanks a lot Nascar!  Now that the races are on NBC1 I can't watch them. WHAT???  I need a Tony Stewart fix!  I'm going to need to go out to watch the races every week.

Hey Tony Stewart, CALL ME!
