I just broke a personal record today – I went to the canal and ran for ten miles straight . I stepped on the scale and found that I weigh 190 lbs. When I regain my fluids, that’ll probably go up to 195 or 197. ('Scuse me while I suck on this gallon jug of water…) Since I’m 6’3", I’m as slim as I really need to be.
Anyway, here’s the deal: I eat total crap. Once I regain my strength, I’m probably going to go out and pick up a burger and fries at McDonalds, and a tall coke to slake my thirst. I eat lots of other junk food as well (though not as often as I once did). Whenever I catch myself thinking “maybe I should be eating a nice salad instead”, I soon find myself thinking “Dammit, I’m paying for the right to eat garbage with brute force exercise, so shut up!”
I run about 25 miles per week and work out three days at the gym, with total disregard for the amount of soda and other junk I consume.
Anybody else do the same?
