The Greedy Family

.We’re one of the greediest families on the planet.

Can’t you tell?

Josie – The brain behind all things Yum Yucky.

Studly Husband – Renaissance man who is finding his way to embracing a healthy lifestyle.


Greedy Kid #1 19year-old spawn who never has time for breakfast and always begs to drive the car around the block even though she ran it up on the curb a few times already.

Greedy Kid #2 –16 year-old running fanatic. He can run a 5K in 19 minutes (yes, I’m bragging). Keep on runnin’ baby!

Greedy Kid #3 7 year-old who lives for the sole purpose of consuming apple juice, chicken nuggets, pancakes and peanut butter.

Greedy Kid #4 (Greedy Baby) – Not only greedy for food. She also believes that every trip to the mall is all about her “need” for a greedy shopping spree.

    I’m sorry, but it is physically impossible for anyone to run 5 miles in 19 minutes. I am a track coach and physical fitness expert with a doctorate in physiology. If he told you this, he’s just exaggerating. According to Track and Field the record is 21:04 by Kenenisa Bekele in 2005 during his record breaking 10,000 meter record breaking olympic championship run of 26:17.53. 5 miles is about 8046.72 meters. Children lie to get attention and praise. You should talk to your son about lying, and you should not repeat his lies without confirming them, because it makes you look foolish. It’s natural to want to brag on your children, but it’s not healthy to lie about them. If, on the other hand, he CAN run a 19 minute 5-mile run, you should have him clocked and put him in the record books. Register him for the Olympics, seriously, because he is the fastest man alive!

      If you read the post correctly you would see that I did NOT say 5 miles. I said a 5K, which is 3.2 miles. As a track coach, you should be ashamed of yourself for posting your comment when you didn’t even read the article correctly. Accusing my son of lying… you are a hot mess. And I will not delete your comment. It will stay up so you can see just how ridiculous you are for posting it. Who looks foolish now?

        It looks like that idiot troll didn’t succeed in upsetting you. Good!

        You have a beautiful family. (And you fit right in!)

        I love how these experts go through their laundry list of degrees and resources and just get it totally all wrong! Good for you, Josie! But, it is true you can run 5 miles in 19 minutes! I stepped on a hornets’ next once and I know I easily did that time, if not faster. :)

      • Joobey says:

        I love, love, love that you got that person in check…I cant stop laughing…I cant believe they just accused your kid of lying…so anyhow…good for you mom…stick up for your baby and good for the “baby”. keep on running….

    If there is one thing I can’t stand on ther internet it’s trolls… You didn’t even read the whole line you just saw the word run, number 5, and time… After that Hating was in full effect. Kasima you say you are a track coach …. PLEASE! How is that when you don’t even know or understand the difference between 5K & 5 Miles… LMAO … Where did you get your degree from Everest College? No matter get a refund quick.. You talk about talk about world running times well as a reluctant runner 5K in 19 minutes is far from an elite runner… But surely you should know that right… Lastly you have the gumption to talk about lies but it’s clear to anyone the only lying involved is you claiming to be a track coach… You have been weighed, measured and found stupid…

    The post from Kasima is down right RIDCULOUS! Who posts a reply like that? Out of all the benefits from this blog she chose to say that. What kind of track coach is she? As a teacher, I wouldn’t want her to be around my students. Sheesh!

  4. Phil says:

    I think there is a chance someone can do a 5 mile run in 19 minutes. The world record for a 1 mile run did it averaging 16.3 MPH. The 19 minutes you indicated for the 5 mile run is a average of 15.79 MPH or slightly slower than the world record MPH.

    If the young man continues to develop his natural talents you just might have a world record holder to talk about in the future – Awesome!


    • yumyucky says:

      Hey Phil. The thing is, the 19 minutes I indicated is for a 5-kilometer, not a 5-mile. My son has since lowered his time to the 17-minute range for a 5K. Thanks for stopping by the blog!

    Thanks so much for the stomach bug preventatives! Hope they work!! Nice site too, I will look for you on Facebook. :)

    PS. Your kids are adorable!

    I never read this until now but I am laughing about the tongue-lashing from someone who reminds me of the days of “Lisa Parsons.” (Could it be?) I’d be surprised if you have not been hit yet – your orientation would be denounced. You could be criticized for being “of color,” but not of enough color. The possibilities for derision are endless.

  7. Lisa says:

    Hi, I like your site, it’s cool! Congratulations for your fitness and the work you do to get healthier, also I like your sense of humor. “The joy of the LORD is your strength”, most people quote that scripture to me A LOT, because it helps to laugh, huh?! You have a beautiful family! Keep on keepin’ on girl!

    What a beautiful family. I really got a kick out of the video of your youngest enjoying her “cow snack.”
