If you’ve watched any of the Olympics then you have probably heard that swimmer Michael Phelps ingests about 10,000 calories a day during the Olympics.

If you have read any of my blog over the past week you have probably heard that I ended up going to the fair five times.

Indiana state fair x 5= 10,000 calories (give or take)

10,000 calories = Phelpsing

I Phelpsed myself at the fair.

Want a list?

2 elephant ears

2 cobs of corn drowned in butter

2 Indiana beef ribeye sandwiches

2 sides of baked beans

1 corndog

1 huge lemon shakeup

1 enormous pineapple/strawberry whip

1 deep fried Wunderbar

1/2 plate of spiral fried potatoes w/ hot cheese dip

2 chocolate milks


I’m going to have to answer to Wii Fit this week.

I may be the first person ever to be physically attacked by Wii Fit.

“It’s wasn’t me Wii Fit! I was Phelpsed by the fair! Honestly!”


  1. I am cracking up – ‘phelpsing’ is now my new favorite word!

    beachmoms last blog post..my major malfunction…

  2. I can’t believe you were able to restrain yourself that well. If I had gone to the fair five times, my list would be like: 5 corndogs, 5 elephant ears, 5 soft pretzels, 5 trays of nachos, 5 giant lemonades… I’d probably ingest 10,000 calories each time! See, you should be proud of yourself!!

  10. My arteries are clogging just reading that list! And now you’re fasting for the doctor? A blood test I presume? I think you better warn them ahead of time of your ‘phelpsing’.

  11. Phelpsing!


    Now there’s a word I will be adding to my vocabulary.
    I have a teenage son, there’s a lot of phelpsing going on at our house.

    What I want to know is, were you able to swim really really fast after you left the fair?

  12. Lemon shakeups are the best!

  15. I think I just phelpsed myself on cupcake batter. I bet I don’t get any gold medals for it, either!

  16. The boy and I were just discussing Phelps’ caloric intake. My trainer allows me 1600 calories per day, I’m going to have to talk with her about that.

  17. I’ve hit my limit of fair food.. We were there Wed through last night showing our draft horses. We were walking past the deep fried snowball and twinkie place yesterday and the guy yelled at my husband something along the lines of “you ready to get your twink on?”. Too funny.. We went the healthier route with Dip-n-dots:)

    Tiffanys last blog post..Since Wednesday….

  18. I can totally see all your fair food crap AND raise you a couple of keg beers to boot.

    Also, curious here – I usually don’t deviate from my standard fair favorites because hey, my gut actually does have only so much room, even though I do push the limit – but I’m curious on the elephant ears, aka “fried dough” at my fair. Should I forgo the funnel cake in favor of the elephant ear? What say you?

  19. 10,000 calories is so much food…

    i figure it is about 6 chipotle burritos in one day! I can hardly eat half of one, i couldn’t imagine eating that much in one day!

    but…he is young, male, and in shape…

  20. Yep, Urban Dictionary needs to add Phelpsed! My Fit is going to yell at me for neglecting it.

  22. OOOH. Sounds good. What is a lemon shake up?

    Reeses last blog post..Big Bunch of Nothing.

  23. Phelpsing = Awesomeness.

    I have my own Pelpsing diet, which I try not to share on the Internet, and most definitely did not include the entire batch of brownies AND the pan of lemon bars. Nope. Not at all.


    heidikinss last blog post..What is “Business Casual”? Please HALP!

  24. Oh, man, I should not have read this around dinner time. I am so Phelpsian’ hungry. Can you FedEx me a lemon shakeup and ribeye sandwich? I’ll be your best friend…

    Erins last blog post..Blech.

  25. It’s a damn good thing that you are as big as my PINKIE then, right?

    Because seriously…YOU ARE ITTY.BITTY.

  32. Yet part of me is still very bitter because i’m sure you’re still a size teensy-tiny…which is just wrong wrong wrong.

    I phelpse every month during PMS time, that may be the bigger issue

  33. I love your new word!! And I’m jealous that you made it to the fair. We headed to the KY state fair, but got stuck in traffic and ended up having to go straight to the concert. Yumm. Deep fried snickers.

  34. The horses are Haflingers and smaller than the Belgians. You don’t have to be a giant to handle them! Keep us in mind next year when you’re phelpsing at the State Fair, we’ve got little ones running around so the Moosh is safe getting up close and personal to our horses..

    Tiffanys last blog post..Skylar

  35. I think that may be the best new word ever. Our fair starts this weekend–I have a feeling I’m going to be totally Phelpsed as well.

  36. Michael Phelps is AMAZING!!! I phelps myself many times a day … stupid calories!
