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!
