Springy legs, not springy weather

After the last few trips to the gym to lift weights, not the running trips, I've showered and headed to my car and noticed that I had a spring in my step. That's right...a spring. A spring defined as sort of light, effortless jaunt. It felt like I could go running if need be. It's a nice feeling and lasts about 30 minutes or so when my legs resort back to their normal anchor like weights extending from my hips. I'm not sure exactly WHY this happens, but I'm guessing it has to do with either adrenaline or endorphins or something chemical. Whatever the reason, it's a nice feeling.

What wasn't nice is when I came out of the gym to 40 degree temperatures at 5:00 with a windchill of 30 degrees. Seriously? A windchill? Yep. Not pleasant. It's supposed to warm up everyday through the weekend, so I'm not too concerned about the Bears game on Sunday. It's going to be a long day with tailgating starting at 11 a.m., the game at 3:15 and then more tailgating afterwards.'s going to be like a 9 or 10 hour outdoor day!!

Tonight, in part because of the nasty weather, we opted for this beautiful morsel:

Yes, it's the McRib!! Combined with fries, it's about half of the RDA of sodium and about what I consume all day on a regular basis....if not more. Fortunately for me, the McRib is available only through something like November 14th. LL and I both wanted to have one before it goes away. Check!

my ears started ringing just thinking about that! I actually have fond memories of that sandwich, though it's been decades since I ate one. probably something that best stays in the past.

As a person who has secret loves for Cheetos, biscuits and sausage gravy and Chicago style hot dogs (not to mention the Jack-in-the-Box 2 for a dollar tacos!), who am I to judge one's love of the McRibb.
