Tell the Truth Thursday

1. I am secretly excited about the KFC Double Down sandwich (which also comes in a grilled chicken version). Why am I excited? Because, remember, I no longer indulge in bread. The sandwich is just two pieces of chicken with cheese and bacon in between. No bread!
Basically I am sick to death of salads and sometimes feel starved!

This is mostly during lunch. For dinner, I obviously make something that all of us can eat.

So the next time hubby says, "Let's do Mickey D's for lunch", instead of cursing his metabolism, I'll say, "I'll do fast food if you go to KFC."

Just so I can try that bad boy! And then regret it, I'm sure, b/c it's got tons of calories and fat grams. ;-)

2. I got a new Walk/Pilates combo work-out DVD and it is kicking my butt! The reason I got a new one was because I lost ten pounds and then my weight came to a stand still (and I have 5 more to lose). If figured I needed to vary my routine again.

My hips, stomach and butt are sore. I've felt sluggish all week and find myself dreading the work-out. I know it's only temporary, until my muscles catch up, but UGHH!

I cannot give up!

**The best part about this new DVD? I can choose the "music only" option and tune out her chirpy, optimistic voice if I want to!

3. After a year of pretty much ignoring my Twitter account, I finally took the plunge and downloaded TweetDeck to my computer a couple months ago. Now I can see all the tweets and discussions occurring in real time. What are the literary agents and editors I follow saying today? What are they eating for lunch? It's become a sick little addiction.

On the positive side, it's helped me figure out which agents I really like and want to query my new novel to. Plus, I've begun participating in #yalitchat on Wednesday nights after kiddo goes to bed and have learned tons about the literary world. Agents and publishers participate in the discussion and you can ask them questions!

This week the chat includes lots of published authors (the next chat is tonight at 9 EST). VERY COOL!

Christina Lee said...

Acting BM--yep, totally aware--and that's why fast food is just plain not good for you--but I will indulge one time I'm sure.

I'm awful at twitter I still don't get it!!!

I love a good meaty meal!!! Sometimes salad don't do the trick!!

My daughter has been bugging me about ghat KFC sandwich thingy, but if I go there I will eat biscuits, so not good.

I have Leslie Sansone too. Now if I could only work my CD player I'd be all set.

Maddy said...

Lol! If you're going to do the KFC sandwich, then I say go all out and get the fried chicken one! Even if it's only a morsel! Sometimes, I find that having a morsel of pretty much anything is enought to satisfy my craving :)

BTW - I'm going to follow you right now on Twitter! I love it! Plus, wouldn't you like to know what I'm having for lunch too ? ;o)

Yes, I hear the sandwich will only be available in the States. People were complaining. Sorry to hear you are still off bread. I am sad for you.

Great news about Twitter, although not your addiction.

OMG - my hubbins LOVES his fast food and I never want to go because it's so horrible. Carbs = sugar yes? Bad bad bad.

I just checked out the nutritional info from the KFC site and the Double Down offers a grilled version. There is a lot of sodium, but 3 carbs, 61 grams of protein, and 480 calories.

I wouldn't eat this thing every day, but I'd eat it in a fast-food pinch.

Thanks for the heads up!

You must share a review on the KFC looks so bad for you, it must be glorious! :) I have to get onto YAlitchat...I set up an account, but it started to suck me in, so I told myself I'd wait until the summer to explore it more.

McVal said...

That looks yummy!
And I've never gotten into tweeting... Maybe I'm just not following very interesting people.

Small Burst said...

That looks yummy. Have another for me, would you. My truth today...blogging instead of working....shhhhh. i'll only be on for a couple minutes ;) and I had a teeny weeny (ok maybe not so tiny) slice of pizza for breakfast-hawaiian.

My truth: I'm going to try that KFC sandwich just once, six months before I get my cholestrol (sp/) checked! :-)

Elana Johnson said...

That sandwich looks amazing. My husband would love that. He's never met a sandwich he didn't like.

I missed the chat last night! Was it epic?

Sturgmom said...

I've always thought that "walk at home" videos would be a bit boring. But I'm glad to hear you like this one!

Twitter has been anoying me lately, but I also have PMS, so that may have something to do with it.

I am Twitter obsessed myself. I actually Tweet from my BlackBerry at times. It has become SUCH a guilty pleasure!! :)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

My truth is that it's not 5 more pounds for me, it's X's 10! I want to get one of those walk videos.
That KFC sandwich looks so good to me, I must try it. We seldom eat red meat, but we love it and I ended up having two Red Robin burger this week. Doesn't help the sentence at the top does it?

I haven't lost my taste for salad yet. I am still enjoying them. We shall see. haha. I TALK about exercise a lot. But to actually do it....welllll. hahaha.
