After winning a gold medal at the Olympic games, one would think it's time to celebrate with a relaxing vacation. For gold-medalist Gabby Douglas there are simpler tasks at hand.

During an appearance on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno on Monday (August 13), the history-making 16-year-old told the comedian, "I splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's!"

Surprised by her response Leno asked, "Egg McMuffin?" The darling gymnast's answer prompted a response from co-guest First Lady Michelle Obama who jokingly scolded her unhealthy desicion saying, "Yeah, Gabby, don't encourage him," adding," I'm sure it was on a whole wheat McMuffin."

The 48-year-old wife of President Barack Obama is no stranger to encouraging everyone in the United States to try and lead a healthier lifestyle and she added, "You're setting me back Gabby!"

As the trio continued on with their fun-loving interview, Jay asked Gabby about winning her Olympic gold. The young athlete responded, "I think it's very different and when I [say] different it's in a better way,' adding, "I never thought I would be doing the show with the First Lady, or even you Jay!"
