SO I GAVE UP BURGERS FOR LENT

April 5, 2013


and french fries. and ice cream. why, you ask? not because I'm a good catholic girl. (technically I was baptized presbyterian, with president ronald reagan present, but I digress...) giving these things up for lent was my way of tricking myself into thinking that I wasn't on a diet. this was the conversation that went on in my head:

me: I want a cheeseburger.
me: you can't have a cheeseburger.
me: why not? 
me: because you're on a diet. let's look awesome in your cute new bathing suit that just came in the mail.
me: don't put me on a diet. I do what I want, I love myself blah blah blah (eats cheeseburger)

or....

me: I want a cheeseburger.
me: you can't have a cheeseburger.
me: why not?
me: because everyone is challenging you to live without them for 46 days. you think you can handle that? geez.
me: a challenge. very cool. oh man, it's so on. 

so, I went to five guys with greg (he's trying to convince me that five guys is better than in-n-out, and I will say that their fries definitely are) and I was that ridiculous girl whipping out her DSLR at a fast food restaurant. people were like, "does this girl know where she is? she's at five guys. her life must be pretty sad if this is a highlight for her." but I didn't give a flying-you-know-what because GOSHDARNIT I was having a cheeseburger and fries and in that moment, I was probably one of the top 5 happiest people in the world. and definitely the happiest person in that five guys.

This is really funny to me because I've done the same thing at fast-food joints. Lots of weird looks, but when the food looks good, it looks good!
