Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today is truly one of my favourite days of the year! Spring is around the corner. Lots of beer will be had. I can wander the streets in a drunken stupour at 2am, and I'll be in lots of company!

I'm faltering this year, though. I don't think that beer and french fries are a good idea for busting this plateau. On the other hand, it's one of my favourite occasions, and I would hate to miss out on all the fun.

It's such a dilemma, isn't it? I mean, if I had been on track up until now, I would have definitely given myself this day "off". But I'm not on track. Is this going to make me feel really resentful next week, and devour something terribly anyway? On the other hand, I don't want to spend the next two weeks working off one night's damage.

And is there even middle-ground on this one? Like, could I have ONE beer and a FEW french fries? Can I truly trust myself like that?

Lots of questions - no answers. I am planning a two-hour workout tonight, though. An hour of cardio at the gym, followed by hard-core strength training. Maybe I'll just collapse with fatigue when I get home, and my whole dilemma will disappear!

How about 1 beer and NO french fries ;) I am sure after a couple of hours of working out you can have a few beers. Have fun tonight.

I agree -- definately go for a few beers (2-3?) and try to skip the fries. But I know that after a few beers its SOOO hard to resist greasy foods.

But you're going to work out, so that's good. Enjoy yourself tonight, just dont stuff yourself!
