Unfortunately, the "Large Size" Kit Kat bar did not drop from it's perch. It leaned out a little bit, but was hung up on the very end of the coil that held it (and it's Kit Kat brethren) in space "E9". I probably wouldn't be blogging about my inaccessible "Large Size" Kit Kat bar, had it not been for the fact that I had eaten a Butterfinger bar just this morning. Yep, two candy bars in one day...I'm slipping.
I know what many of you are thinking; "You ride your bike so much and run so far that you should be able to eat whatever you want."
And that's the trap I've found myself in. I've managed to lose weight this spring without really trying and now I feel like I have permission to indulge.
Actually, I should be able to eat as much as I want. Not whatever I want. There is a difference. I can eat as many vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins as I want. But I really should be laying off the sugar, fats and high-sodium foods. There's a reason you should be eating vegetables, lean meats and whole grains. They all have stuff that your body needs in a certain balance. By eating too much sugar, fat or salt it throws of your body's chemistry and basically gunks up the works by denying it the vitamins, minerals or complex carbohydrates it needs to function.
I've noticed in the past that I may actually be lighter eating junk food, but slower on my bike or when running. If I gain a couple pounds by eating complex carbs and just generally healthy stuff, it usually is made up for by better performance (not to mention just generally feeling pretty good).
So the diet starts tomorrow! (I've got youth group tonight...it's a little tough to eat smart there...)
I know, this isn't a Kit-Kat that's stuck, but you can see my frustration!
