I'm Thinkin' it's good work out of Arby's.

As I have said a few times before I work on the third shift. From midnight to 8:30 am, and that can really mess a person up. On of the main areas I have struggled with is eating. In fact, prior to starting this schedule I had lost a good amount of weight, and although I have only put about 10 of those pounds back on over the last two years, I think I was unable to keep loosing it due to the odd way I eat. I get up at 5:30 pm when my wife gets home from work, and we have dinner together shortly there after. After spending the evening together I head into work and have my lunch at 4:00 am. That meal normally is like another dinner, all be it, made up of the kind of shit you can buy at 4 in the morning. I know I should take a lunch, but I have never been able to keep up with it. When I get home I normally have a breakfast type meal, but it is not uncommon for me to go and get some fast food when I am to lazy to cook.

The other day I went to Arby's for the first time in what seamed like 10 years. I know I have been there since, but they must have made some real changes in that time. Forgetting the french fries, the meal didn't make me want to hang myself right after eating it. A burger from one of the big places always seams to sit heavy in my stomach, but the sandwitch I got at Arby's didn't have that effect. If I could avoid the fries, it may be the type of place that helps me eat something fast, but that doesn't make me feel so lethargic. That's some good work out of you Arby, who ever you are. I like your place.
