a small gain, 4/17/2007
I was not surprised to have a gain this week, especially considering my candy-coated frenzy after Easter. I am sure that if you carved out that 0.8 pound, it would look exactly like a peanut butter egg.
I've been struggling lately, no doubt about it. Not only because of the candy, but also because of some injury problems that make my usual strategy -- exercise a lot to make up for my snacking habit -- impractical. I'm still doing some yoga, some weight lifting, walking, and my Aquafit class, so I'm not totally inactive. But I really miss running and the ability to not only burn lots of calories, but calm my crazed mind. Now that the weather's nicer, I'll have to try taking out the bike and see how that works.
I guess that I need to shift from "Eat to Live" instead of "Live to Eat." I don't know why that has to be so hard for me.
