So I went grocery shopping tonight and I am usually very very good at resisting the snack aisle. But tonight for some reason I was really craving a salty snack with absolutely NO nutritional value. So I went for the cheese curls. I got home and could not control myself. I ended up eating about 1/2 the bag. ARGH. I wasn't going to enter it into the nutrition tracker, but I did anyway. Ends up that I stayed within my range of stuff today, but I still feel like crap. I don't know what got into me (other than 1/2 a bag of Jax). So I promptly went to the gym and ran a mile, did a lot of upper body and core stuff, and biked hard for 15 minutes. Damn Jax.
I have been at a weight-loss plateau for a few weeks now. I am getting a little frustrated. Why is it so much easier to tell *other* people that a plateau is normal, but when it comes to telling myself it is just so hard to believe it? I am able to run longer and lift more, so I know that I am still progressing... these numbers are just so defining even though I know that the scale number is not the end-all. Maybe I will try a little experiment that I read about in E.B.'s blog... maybe I'll wait until the end of the month to weigh-in and see what happens. Tomorrow *is* the 1st, so it may be a good time to make a goal for the month and see what happens.
Off to fold some laundry and hop in the shower before bed.
Happy last day of April!
