I'm pretty sure as soon as I heard those words I though "awwww... I'm the skinny couch potato." Really my weight fluctuates quite a bit. I have been at my "fittest" at two different times in my life. The first was after all the training when I entered the reserves. The second was after I came back from China the second time (when people asked my favorite foods I would say veggies and fish, which worked wonders.) The most out of shape was the first time I went to China which was right after the army (I walked a lot and somehow thought that would be enough even though I was eating a lot because the food was awesome.)
So I thought it would be really interesting for someone (not me, not now at any rate as I'm going out of the country yet again in a little while) to keep a blog called the skinny couch potato. First tracking their bad habits for a bit, then trying to change them, so I kept a food log for a day a few weeks back.
12 pm- 1/2 grapefruit with spoonful of sugar
12 pm- Peanut Butter and Jelly/Candy pancake
4:40 pm- 0.75 oz Pez (5 packets)
5:15 pm- 4 pieces of asparagus
5:30 pm- Hot Dog, with ketchup, mustard and relish, no bun (because I was lazy)
5:30 pm- white chocolate chips
6:15 pm- 7 more .15 oz Pez (some after dinner)
7:00 pm- 2 more asparagus
7:16 pm- Gumbo and rice
Yeah, I didn't like doing that, and it would take some serious discipline for me to do that daily. Perhaps even more discipline than it would take for me to actually start running every other day. I would like to someday run a marathon or better yet a triathlon, or one of these, but I sincerely doubt I would blog about it, as interesting experiment as it may be.
