I've bolded the choice I've selected. I'm going to order it with steamed veggies (two orders) and possibly half of a baked potato. Then I've got to high-tail it home for a hard cardio session, even though if you look at the chart to your right, you'll see that today was supposed to be legs day. I am not coming back to this damn office to do leg day. This is the challenge of working out at the office. However, since our new fitness center opened at our apartment complex, I'll be sweatin it out there.

That is the plan. I know you're glued to your computer with these thrilling updates!
