Pizza Perdition.....

Saturday, March 22, 2014

I was so BAD! I'm blogging this to keep myself honest.....what was I thinking! The week went well enough considering I had a cold for 3-4 days, but I felt good by Friday and was happy that I was going to the salon to get my hair done (what girl doesn't love the salon!)

But, when I arrived home from work, I was suddenly and inexplicably starving! I drank water, I had a handful of cashews...and then the babysitter came home with the pizza... my first mistake was eating a slice quickly before I ran to the salon and not just sitting with the hunger. One slice would have been fine.

But, then, I came home after the salon and I was still starving....so I heated up 2 slices (small ones, silly consolation). I enjoyed the 2 slices immensely though I knew eating the second was was bad! But, I couldn't stop myself... I went back for more! I had another half. That made 3 1/2 slices of pizza in my belly. I didn't get a tummy ache, I didn't feel sick, but I KNEW it was way too much pizza.

The entire time, I am having this conversation in my head about how "BAD" I am being, and I should know better, but it was like my hands and mouth were suddenly disconnected from my brain! I could not talk myself out of eating less. It was late, we were snuggled in the living room watching movies together, and I wanted the darn pizza!

To add insult to injury, I woke up hungry again. I have eaten very well today, even tried a spark recipe: Egg Cups, which my husband and I loved...kids, not so much (what's not to love about eggs, cheese and ham, I don't know - it was probably the shape or texture, sheesh, kids)

It was so beautiful out here today I also walked 5 miles, which I am very happy about.

But, I am SO MAD at myself about the pizza!

My penance: I usually eat a bagel on Sunday morning, no bagels for me tomorrow. So sad. But, give a little, take a little. That scale needs to drop it's pound on Monday/Tuesday so I am not fooling around!

How do you talk yourself out of eating? Or does your mouth take control of you too??!

Thanks for listening!

Keep sparkin'!!

    emoticon It happens. I agree with the other commenters! No beating yourself up. As hard as it is, I've found that using words like "bad, penance, etc." w/in this journey just makes it that more difficult. You are emoticon emoticon and a QUEEN emoticon whether you ate salads or pizza emoticon
    Hope you're having a happy, healthy week!!!

    I dont think you should beat yourself up over pizza. I would even rethink punishing yourself by no bagel. In the long run of your life the pizza is a drop in bucket of your life. I hope you have a good weekend.

    Don't beat yourself up over the pizza! So maybe you ate more than you needed, but it doesn't sound like you stuffed yourself with pizza, and you didn't mention following that up with a giant bowl of ice cream. Relax! It happens to everyone now and then.

    In fact, I just had a total pigout for the first time in over a month - on things I don't even usually eat and had no craving for. I'm feeling pretty gross right now, but it'll be okay.

    Just glad to read that the frustration at the situation isn't going to derail you!
