Self-Proclaimed Weekend Warrior

Posted: Updated:

"LIAR!"

That's the sign Maria Quiban held up to me from across the studio Wednesday morning.  She was reacting my interview with Dr. Mike from the FOX Medical team.  He said people trying to lose weight should pay close attention to what they eat during the week, and not worry as much about splurging on the weekends.  

I was so excited about this study as a self-proclaimed "Weekend Warrior."  And that's when Maria Q. called me out.  After a long work day, a few of us share pictures of our culinary delights.  And perhaps, we also make a toast or two. Maria at times has seen my daily intake.  I don't mean to lie... I try!

This morning started off good.  I had a Greek yogurt, a banana, and an English muffin before for breakfast. But it starts getting tough as the day goes on.  Sidecar Donuts in the studio.  I've never had a salted butter donut.  Well, now I have!  

A quick four mile run then off to lunch to celebrate my friend's birthday.  Fresh bread.  Lobster topped with crabmeat. A handful of Fries.  Share a key lime pie for dessert.  There goes the diet!

I will say I clarified to Dr. Mike that I'm a "Weekend Warrior" who starts his weekend on Thursday.   Maybe I should have told him my weekend starts on Tuesday.   I'm getting Maria Q. a new sign-- "Try-ER!"
