    Crackers, chips, and other salty/crunchy snacks are better not in our house.  I can't just eat a normal portion of crackers (what, a serving of Ritz crackers isn't an entire sleeve?!).  Peanuts in the shell are dangerous, too.

      Chips! Chips are my main downfall when it comes to food. Any kind--I'll eat them. The whole bag.

          Give me soda, I'll eat chips.  Give me chips, I'll drink soda.  It never stops.  Chips/peanuts/popcorn make the beer go down a lot faster, too.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            That's me with Smartfood white cheddar popcorn.

             

            I'm sure it's fine. It's called "Smartfood", after all.

              Funny...that's what I always tell myself as I'm licking the cheesy stuff off my fingers while an empty bag lies next to me. Blush

                I've often thought that runners probably have a higher proportion of people who have these sorts of compulsions than other people.  The same characteristics that lead to our obsessiveness with running leads to unhealthy compulsions in other areas of life.  At least for me.  Moderation takes a genuine effort.  I'm sure this is a gross generalzation, but just one of those things that passes through my head while running.  Or eating.  Or drinking.  Or working.

                  I think there's truth to that.  I have a friend who is a super hardcore cyclist who has landed herself in urgent care before.  She refers to herself as a "former fatty."  She doesn't do anything with moderation...which is both good and bad, depending upon the day.

                    Not exactly how many of those lbs. are from the beer itself, and how many are from the late night Taco Villa stops on the way home from drinking beer. Either way, I blame beer.

                     

                    This is precisely my problem.  When I drink beer it erodes my will to stay on a diet.  This is why I only drink beer on weekends.

                      In the "it isn't Taco Bell" battle for regional fast food with Taco in the name....

                       

                      Taco Villa (Texas) > Taco Bueno (more widespread) > Taco Time (Pacific Northwest) > Taco Johns (plains) > big big big gap > Taco Bell.

                       

                      Ok then.

                       

                      Beer will miss you.  But ultimately it will lead to goodness.

                       

                      (I did not count Taco Del Mar, because that's a "burrito as big as your head" place. Different list.)

                       

                      Explanation for PNW folks: Taco Time would rank higher, but Taco Time is spendy.  Better ingrediments, but spendy.

                          If that happens, it will accelerate my master plan to move back.

                            Yes, folks. It's THAT good.
                               because it's difficult for me to have one beer.

                               

                              This is my problem. It doesn't help that I like to include beer with my favorite activities.

                               

                              Many of my household task are tied to the number of beers it takes to complete.

                               

                              Mowing the yard is a 3 beer job.

                              Helping with the dishes is 1

                              Helping with the laundry is load dependant but I can usually fold two loads to 1 beer

                              Changing the oil in the car is 1, if the neighbor helps it's 6

                              This weekend I need to clean the gutters...I suspect this will take at least 6 beers.

                              Sweeping the garage is 2

                              Organizing the garage is a 12 pack.

                              This summer I'm building a new detached garage...I've been in contact with the distributor.
