My boyfriend LOVES pizza.
Occasionally I succumb to ordering pizza from our fav place. Tonight we had planned on making our own pizza...but we were both super lazy, so we compromised and got an oven pizza. I think the key to not overeating pizza for me is to cut into 6 slices instead of 4 and to only take 2 pieces. I have to pair my two slices with a salad, otherwise I will go for more. I topped a bed of spinach with a poppyseed dressing so that it got rid of the pizza taste and satisfied my sweet-tooth at the same time. Another key is to eat the pizza first, then the salad...if I have a lingering pizza taste in my mouth...there's no holding back!
I had another sparkling OJ for dessert and was completely content with my belly. Today's meals included:
Breakfast - Green Monster
Mid-morning snack - Glo Bar
Lunch - tomato-basil veggie burger with sliced mozzarella on 2 pieces of Ezekiel (panini style on the foreman at work)
Afternoon snack - medium sized grapefruit
Dinner - 2 slices pepperoni pizza, spinach salad
Dessert - OJ cocktail
I had a yoga session this morning...it was extremely hard getting there...but of coarse I was glad that I went. My plan for tomorrow is to go jogging outside followed by 30 min strength training in the morning...I have to keep up on the early rising thing! It is going great so far:)
