I didn’t think I’d ever say these words. . .

I had to be at work an hour early yesterday morning.  So after getting up, taking a shower, getting dressed, blogging and out the door – I hadn’t fixed anything for breakfast and it was time to go.

One of my guilty pleasures?  The sausage biscuit at McDonald’s.  It’s 370 calories, 22 fat, 30 carbs, 2 fiber and 14 protein – and while I know its high in fat for the calories, this stuck with me from 7:20 in the morning until 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon.  Don’t worry Tony, I had it sitting on the bag so it didn’t get the passenger seat greasy.

It’s about the only thing at McDonald’s that doesn’t give me the runs 30 minutes after I eat it.  Yep, hoping your eating breakfast or lunch right now as you read that sentence.  You’re welcome. Open-mouthed smile

I still had lasagna soup for lunch, but since we were working so hard, I suggested that my boss and I get Chinese food for lunch.  It’s seriously the quickest Chinese food – it’s across the street from us and literally from phone call to delivery is about 10 minutes.  I decided to order the chicken and broccoli because the chicken isn’t breaded.

I asked if they could make it spicy for me. . . I may have said “I love spicy food!” when I was ordering it.

Because its their lunch special it says “no substitutions” so I couldn’t ask for my normal “no onions” although Tony told me I should just ask for it anyway.  Luckily the onion pieces were big enough to pick out, both in the dish and the fried rice.

I took one bite of the chicken and was like “that’s got a bit of a kick to it.”  Another minute later my eyes are watering and my nose is starting to run.  Again, you’re welcome for the visual!  I keep trying to move around the food to see what the spice is, and all that is really noticeable is the crushed red pepper, but that has never affected (or is it effected Helen?) me before.

I seriously could only eat about 1/4 of this dish because it was too spicy.  I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d ever say those words!  Only one time before I had some chicken wings that I could barely bring to my face, let alone take a bite.  While I like spicy it has to be flavorful spicy.  Next time I’ll kick my lunch up myself. Open-mouthed smile

I literally was non-stop all day at work.  I had garlic chicken thighs on the menu from $10 dollar dinners on Food Network, but you have to cook the garlic cloves for 10 minutes, then sear the chicken, then finish off baking for 30 minutes.  I seriously didn’t have the energy, so I went with a quick fix – fried chicken.  The thighs were pretty small so it was perfect – on the side some sliced red potatoes I fried for a couple minutes and some canned corn.

I have another busy day at work today, but I have a three day weekend.  Monday is my surgery for my pre-cancerous mole at the plastic surgeons office.  I wonder if they will throw in a boob job on the house?

I have no stats – I didn’t enter anything into fatsecret.com, I didn’t work out, and I only tested my blood sugar once all day.  Crazy!

You have to go visit my blog friend Brooke and give her some virtual high fives!  She’s officially lost  . . .

150 pounds!!

So proud of you!!  You were such a beautiful bride too! Open-mouthed smile  She’s contemplating hosting a “countdown to Christmas” challenge – pop on over and let her know if you are interested!

And to my running blog friends – can you stop by Aimee’s blog and give her some advice?  She’s been training for a marathon that is in the middle of November, and now thinks she’s got some Achilles problems and isn’t sure how to deal with it – rest?  Scrap running for a week?  I have no idea so hopefully you guys can help her out – thanks!

Make it a great day!  Happy Friday!

  1. You know what, Biz? I just love you!! The whole runs thing, the running nose – you just make me crack up! Woo hoo for Brooke! That’s incredible! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. lol! eh–throw a boob job in there too. 🙂

    Too spicy?!? I’ve never heard of such a thing . . . must have been pretty intense!

  3. You were right it is “affected.” That Chinese that you ordered is one of my favorite Chinese dishes, although I do try to healthify it a bit more by getting plain white rice. Have a great weekend!

  4. Your meal from the Chinese place probably would have killed a mere mortal with that level of spiciness! So now we know – even Biz has her limits when it comes to spice.

    Hope the day goes by fast for you!

  5. Have an awesome weekend biz!

  6. I didn’t think I’d ever hear you say anything was too spicy! It must have been BAD!!
    Hope you have a great weekend, Biz!

  7. Man, do I miss McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches! They always gave me a wicked tummy ache too. (Yay celiac disease!)

    Great job to your friend on her weight loss! I’m checking out her blog now. 🙂

  8. OMG – I think I just got a pimple looking at that yummy mcd’s breakfast!!! YUMMO!

    TGIF – make it a great weekend!

    OMG, the words “wonder if they’ll throw in a boob job” made me almost spit out my coffee from laughter. Hilarious!!!!! Thanks for the links for the other blogs. Always great to read success stories. Have a wonderful (non runny – you’re welcome) Friday!

  10. Thanks for the support Biz. I appreciate it. I’ll be heading over to Brooke’s blog. That’s incredible.

    I think we all have our spicy food limit. For me it doesn’t take much. That kind of stinks that you couldn’t eat much of your lunch.

    LOL at the boob job comment!

  11. LOL on the spice. I have had that a couple times. It’s Indian food – if you ask for hot – it is damn hot!!! I don’t like to choke when I eat.

    For affect and effect – treat affect like a verb and effect like a noun and you will be correct 99% of the time.

  12. I just bought some fire roasted pepper salsa and thought of you. It has a kick to it, but it is SO good! I wonder what they put in your dish to make it TOO spicy?!

  13. Thank you so much for the shout out! You’ve always bee so supportive!! I really appreciate it! 🙂

  14. You’re evil, now I want a sausage biscuit. lol! Your running nose from the spicy food made me laugh, as well as the free boob job-ha! I have a spicy food story for you. Back when I was in the Cult of Scientology working as the receptionist, I decided to try the habanero hot wings someone had brought in. I ate one right there at the front desk and I felt like my lips expanded and were swollen, the chicken was SO hot. I was crying, my nose was just running like crazy. I was in so much pain I was looking for any way to numb it and went to the sugar bowl and just rubbed sugar all over my lips and around the surrounding area. Of course, that’s when a new person decided to walk in and ask “What is Scientology?” and I gave him a GREAT first impression with red swollen lips, runny nose, running eyes, and sugar all over my mouth. He never came back and at the time I was mortified, but I actually did him a big favor by scaring him off. Bwah!

  15. Oh and check my blog today, I don’t know if you got my message about the bake sale for Suzie but I announced it today.

  16. sometimes a bit of mcd’s is just what the doc ordered, yum! you’re so sweet to cheer on your fellow bloggers, i love our community!

  17. Too spicey?! I’ve marked this post on my calendar …see how long before that happens again. Next blue moon by chance? 🙂

  18. I love the bacon, egg, cheese bagel at McD’s. I only get it once every few months b/c I’m sure it’s fat laden! I find your comments hilarious, it’s just like me posting how much I peed on fb…lol! If you can’t be real than it’s just no fun 😉 I’m surprised something was to spicy for you too…wowza! I hope they throw in your boob job but, just the same lots of luck girl and I’m glad you have the day off!

  19. I have to admit, I like those breakfast sandwiches too, although I seriously can’t remember the last time I had one. Good luck with your minor surgery!

  20. I can’t believe anything was too spicy for you. You must have caught caught the cook in one of “those moods”. She wants spicy…I’ll give her spicy….bwahaaa!

    I love your candor. It is just one of the many things that makes your blog so enjoyable.

  21. wow, I have only seen Tom really get hit with spice one time and that was a ghost chile hot sauce that gave him the hiccups immediately haha. you guys are nuts 🙂 Oh and I LOVE McDonalds sausage biscuits SO much, they are so bad but so good!
