Things are gradually getting easier…I think. I’ll be honest though- at about 9:30 am I was feeling it pretty badly. I couldn’t wait until lunch time. Anyway- here’s the breakdown:
Breakfast: 2 pieces of wheat bread
Lunch: Turkey Sandwich, piece of wheat bread
Dinner: 2 pancakes
Tonight was kind of brutal. We had this volunteer appreciation dinner at church, and it was catered by Sunset Grill, which is pretty much awesome. So for the whole night I was in there, smelling the awesome-ness, and desperately wanting some of it. I hear the salad was especially good… To be honest, I was really wanting to break this thing off just for a plate of salad. How pathetic is that!
Tuesday promises to be a similar situation. At church we are having an Arena swtich-over party, and Sheridan’s Frozen Custard is being served there- for free! Talk about amazing-ness in your face! I’m planning on steering clear of everybody that day. lol.
Imminently approaching as well is the All-Staff Luncheon at church which always has amazing food. Let me shed a tear now.
Today I was reading some interesting statistics on the cost of obesity in America.
Apparently if there were no obesity in America we would collectively save $487 billion dollars a year, which is 3.7% of the GDP. That’s pretty incredible to think about. It seems we collectively blow $81 billion on over-eating. Also, we spend over $140 billion on medical costs associated with obesity. Pretty crazy, huh?
Lastly, it seems that we would all generate over $250 billion more dollars in productivity a year. That’s enough output for businesses to be able to hire tens of thousands of more workers.
That’s all I’ve got for today.
