...not to my weight goal, but to my goal for this week, which was to lose the 3 pounds that showed up last week. Apparently a fraction of one of those pounds decided to stick around for a while. At least I'm back to less than ten pounds to goal again. That makes me wonder if it's worth shelling out over $100 to join my @Work meeting or if I should just pay week-to-week at this one, which I really like. I will have to see if my presence or absence would make a big difference in the @Work. If they can get enough members without me, I'd rather do the Monday night one.
I didn't go to my Spinning class this morning. I decided to play it safe. I'm still not sure if I'm sick yet. Since I was already up and had the time, I decided to go to Kroger's at 7:00 a.m. and get my grocery shopping done. There are advantages and disadvantages to this -- no crowds, but everyone else is just there getting coffee or a carton of milk and there I am, filling my cart. They only have a couple of lanes open too.
The grocery store had these GeniSoy Ultra bars FREE today, so I picked one up and figured I'd try it. I don't recommend it. I wish I had looked at the label before even taking one for free, because the reality is, if I have it with me, I'll eat it. It was 3 points for something that didn't taste very good and made me feel like I'd swallowed a rock for the rest of the day. When I went online to check the nutritional information to see what might have made me feel so bad, I noticed that it had 11 grams of sugar, most of it high fructose corn syrup. And most of the other ingredients are freaky and chemically-sounding too. Since it was in the health-food section of the grocery store and it was free, I didn't think about it carefully enough.
Live and learn. I have yoga in an hour and that should make me feel a little better, though there's always the deep (and sometimes justified) fear that it will free some horrible, huge pocket of gas in a loud and embarassing way.
