WIAW and a Weigh-In: don't try this at home

It's been a rather rough few days at work.  End of the school year usual craziness plus some other stuff I won't talk about on the blog.

Needless to say, I wanted a beer last night. 

And pizza.

One of our local brewpubs, Osgood Brewing, has a gluten-free IPA and for an extra $2 will make you a pizza with a gluten-free crust.  I hadn't tried their gluten-free pizza yet (but their regular pizza is amazeballs) so after a really crappy workout at the gym, I went for beer and pizza.

I might have eaten the whole pizza
The pizza was great and so was the beer.  What wasn't so great was my weigh-in this morning, but I pretty much knew this would happen.

I was VERY good all week long and made it down to 148.8 on Monday morning.  I'm not mad at myself and the beer and pizza were definitely a treat, but it still sucks that one day blows a week's worth of effort. (I'm still down 1 pound from last week but it would have been 2.4 pounds and solidly in the 140s before last night's dinner.)

Lesson to be learned?  Even gluten-free pizza and beer have calories and carbs which will cause my weight to jump.  Clearly my body hates me in this regard.  That being said, it really did taste great last night and I know those extra 1.4 pounds will eventually come back off.

Oh yah, One other thing. 

It's National Running Day so get out there and bust out a mile or 5 :)
