Atomic Baby!!


Hello everybody!!  I’m so sorry that I’ve been mia this past week.  It was an extremely crazy week…work was awful and it felt like when I got home, I had a million things that had to be taken care of.  Needless to say, I’m hoping for a more peaceful week ahead.

Yesterday was the annual Central New York BrewFest!!  I go to this every year.  Actually, all of the guys in my family come in from Auburn to go with us as well.  This year we had more than usual…there were 10 of us total this year!  It’s always a good time. 

Afterwards we always all go out to dinner together.  Sometimes, things get a little rowdy, LOL.  This year though, I created the entertainment for the table….

We went to Quaker Steak & Lube.  I love this place.  It is of course not in any way, shape or form WW-friendly.  But sometimes (especially after a day full of drinking) you just don't care!  For years now I have been saying that I was going to try their ‘Atomic Wing Challenge’.  You have to eat 6 of their chicken wings in their ‘Atomic sauce’.  Here is what is on their website describing the sauce:

ATOMIC-  The year was 1991. All was quite and peaceful in the Northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania region when all of a sudden, Quaker Steak & Lube® decided to unleash a nuclear weapon on the taste buds of people far and wide. The Atomic wing sauce was created. No one knows exactly why: some say it was the result of a demise of a chef, trying to sabotage the restaurant owner. Others blame Operation Desert Storm. But whatever it is that happened, one thing remains true: if you are tough enough to try this sauce, we salute you. Please use caution when ordering this wing sauce, and bring a handkerchief. (You even have to sign a release form!) For anyone willing to try: we wish you good luck

Now I love hot stuff…so for me, I was excited.  Here I am right before I started the challenge:


Here I am during the challenge…trying to eat them as fast as I possibly could because they ARE F*CKING HOT!!!!!


And here I am at the end….tears and make-up smears galore…..


I did it!!  I got a cute little t-shirt that says ‘There’s No Crying at the Lube” (yeah, they are full of sh*t!) and I also get my name up on their wall. :-)  They also have a new Triple Atomic challenge, where you eat 3 of their now even hotter atomic sauce….I figured it was best to walk before I run though.

Also, I would like apologize to the lady I accidently squirted with my “beer-gun” (I won a plastic gun in the machine, then filled it with beer, LOL)…I was aiming for my uncle.  My sincere apologies.  

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!  For those of you who will be watching, enjoy the Super Bowl!!


Other accomplishments I made this week-

  • I was down 1.8 at my WI this past Thursday.  That brings my total down to 57.8!! 
  • On Tuesday during my lunch hour, I decided to run from home to back to work.  It was about 3.5 miles.  There were a lot more hills than I remembered there being, but it was a good run!
  • Yesterday I only had time to get in a quick 2 mile run, but it was my fastest mile yet.  I had a pace of 10’42”. 
  • As long as my head and stomach can handle it, I am planning on making at least 1 WW-friendly recipe for the game tonight.  If I do, I will be sure to blog it of course!


  1. that Atomic sauce sounds fantastic! I love all things hot and am lucky Hubs is constantly challenging me (we've got some pickled peppers he made himself in the fridge that *almost* make me cry, but definitely give me the hiccups). Congrats on meeting the challenge!!

    Am definitely interested if you get a WW recipe up. I'm struggling with ideas now...

    way to go on the weight loss!!

  2. ohh, I wonder if I could handle the heat...after being in Korea my tolerance to spice has definitely gone up...but you are my hero!

  3. LOL @ you apologizing to the woman you squirted with your gun of BEER!
    Girl you are BRAVE for eating those ATOMIC wings! YIKES! Sounds like a fun time! Whoohoo! :)
