I've got to get control

Over the past 3 days, on top of my regular meals and snacks, I've consumed 2 cans of pringles (chili & cheese flavor) and 14 rice crispy treats. I've also managed to avoid water - a basic necessity of life, but maganed to drink 16 diet cokes. I'm going to run a marathon in 23 days - and I'm acting like my dog Rikki - who's sole purpose in life is to consume any and all things that drop on the floor. She once at a twist tie - the dog is solid skull from ear-to-ear.

On another subject - I think all people with short legs like me should get a head start in races - it really makes perfect sense.

HEHEHEHEHE, 2 cans of pringles. And you had cookies this morning!! Short people take twice as many steps so they really should be running twice as fast!!

a head start. hee.

(be quiet, i am writing, just not my statement of purpose)

i could tell you about the things my dog has eaten, but i'm pretty sure someone would report me and the SPCA would take my doggie away. in my defense, though, he totally eats things when no one is looking. also, i think he likes it.

you don't actually have to drink lots of water per day. the water in food and other drinks counts, too. i did not make that up; the scientist people said it.

I'm in on the head start...reminds me of that old song "short people got no reason to live...".

2 big cans of pringles or just the short ones? Stop talking about is lunch time and I am trying to be good!

I bet that twistie tie hurt on the way out...

Are Pringles the official snack food of the Chicago Marathon? I think so; yes. You're allowed to consume two cans and still run.

I agree with you, the head start for short people is a great idea - I've got short legs too. We do the double the work of everyone else!

This post kills me... but so true. Between 11:00 and 11:15 pm I usually just stand at the fridge with the door open and eat... just like my dog would do!
