You Know You're On A Diet When....

So I'm at the gym. I'm being good. I'm on the elliptical machine and I'm staring at CNN on the TV. Yep, that's right. Being double good---working out AND watching the news.

But then my eyes wander over to another TV, about two TVs away, where the Today Show has been playing and see a vision. A vision so lovely it stops me in my tracks.

It's a closeup of a warm, inviting-looking beef stew. I see chopped pieces of juicy beef. Bright green peas, some potatoes, carrots, and a delicious sauce. Just like your grandma used to make.

Mmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm. The vision is melting in my mouth. I start day-dreaming about what I'm going to have for lunch. I wonder if I have any beef at home? Could I make something like this?

I start to salivate.

And then I see it. The slogan for a dog food company.

That's right, dog food.

I'm drooling over dog food over here people. I need help!

This made me laugh!! I wonder if the dogs lick their lips when they see that on TV?

That is the best!! I still think you should make beef stew anyways, with it snowing another 65 feet AGAIN!

At my gym, they always have the food network on in front of the treadmills. WTF?

Oh man, I've been searching for a blog that cracks me up as much as my previous (but now very famous) one. This post nailed it. Love your writing.
