How did Gabby Douglas fete her gold medal-winning performance in the Women's Gymnastics Individual All-Around?

"I splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's!" the history-making athlete, 16, told Jay Leno and Michelle Obama during her "Tonight Show" appearance Monday.

"Egg McMuffin?" Leno pressed.

"Yeah, Gabby, don't encourage him," Obama joked. "I'm sure it was on a whole wheat McMuffin." (Obama's platform as First Lady focuses on encouraging healthy habits among young people.)

Added FLOTUS, "You're setting me back Gabby!"

Later during the trio's chat, Leno questioned Douglas about her post-Olympics life -- and whether or not it's met her expectations so far.

"Obviously you have been training your whole life and you dream about winning. How does the dream match the reality?" he asked his pint-size guest.

"I think it's very different and when I (say) different it's in a better way," Douglas explained. For example? "I never thought I would be doing the show with the first lady, or even you Jay!"

Teased Obama, "Even you too, Jay!"
