Avoiding Free Pizza

Yes, we had boxes and boxes of yummy, cheesy, free pizza today at work....aaaaaand I successfully avoided it! It was pretty tough with the glorious smell of pizza in my face, but I knew I had a delicious healthy lunch waiting for me. I had a side salad of arugula, spinach, cherry tomatoes and balsamic and made a sandwich on the foreman with whole wheat bread and this egg white salad that I bought at Treader Joe's this week. SO GOOD! I felt so much better than I would have eating a couple slices of greasy pizza.

I skipped my workout last night:(

I was feeling very headachey and tired so I went to bed early and got up for my morning yoga class. It was wonderful and I felt really good during the class. I plan to make up my missed workout after work I'll be hitting the apartment gym for some speed intervals and strength training. I feel kind of blah right now, but I'm planing to just push through and get the workout done!

On a more exciting note...I made a couple of New Years Resolutions! I am planning a 5K with a friend who lives in NYC and one with my sister when she comes to visit me! We are going to train on our own since we all live in different states and then pick a couple of races to register for. I am also trying to get the boyfriend to sign up for one with me too...that would be 3 races for 2010:)


  1. Great work Gina, I see pizza this way, I rather make my own. Yes the smell is great but the feeling after eating "take out pizza" really turns me off.
    I usually make pizza's on pita's at home, or on store bought thin crust with very little cheese.

    Awesome resolution as well

  2. Way to be strong girl! I think pizza is one of the hardest things for me to decline. That is also cool about your race schedule. It's fun to pick races ahead of time and gives you something to look forward to. I am excited for you.

  3. Yay for skipping the pizza! Self control is so hard sometimes so KUDOS!

    3 races for 2010! Way to plan ahead! I need to get on that! Have you done any races before. I am doing my first one on Thanksgiving! GAH! One week away!

    I should not complain, your area is probably way hillier than mine. LOL is hillier a word? you know what I mean. They are just so tough. I kept thinking today, "at some point I have to go down, when do I get to do down when?!"

  4. That's awesome. Free pizza at work is hands down the hardest thing to avoid. I wonder why? It's not like we couldn't just go order pizza if we wanted it, and we don't. I don't get it, but I feel you! Isn't that such a good feeling when you just say no!? :) Good for you for setting some race goals. And yay for your sissy doing it with you. Ya'll will have so much fun! :)

  5. glad you are joining the Holiday bootie buster challenge, it's fun!! I need your resolve to pass up free food
