I have some younger friends, I refer to them as "the kids" since they're young enough to be my kids, that I see on a weekly basis. We usually do dinner somewhere and catch up on our week and what's coming up. I really got serious about tracking everything within the last week or so and haven't told anyone that I'm working on losing a few pounds again. Not that I don't want to tell them, it's more of I want to see if I can do this without everyone worrying what I can and can't eat. Honestly, I can eat anything and everything as long as I'm smart about it.
Yesterday was one of those days when I just was never really hungry, those days are few and far between, BTW, LOL. One of the kids texted and asked what sounded good for dinner. In most cases, I don't have a preference since I can find something to eat just about anywhere. I told her I hadn't thought about it but what sounded good to her? She replied, pizza. My mind went PIZZA! Oh No, NOT PIZZA! but I said ok. After meeting up and spending 10 minutes deciding what pizza we had Domino's deliver pepperoni with extra cheese. I ate 3 slices and drank a bottle of water. I was full but in the back of my mind I was wondering how far over my limits had I gone. I reminded myself that even if I did go over it was only one meal on one day. I had another bottle of water on the way home and kept reminding myself it was ok, I had a decent amount of calories to spend on dinner and I wasn't going to worry about it either way.
I got home and got on SparkPeople and Domino's (to get the nutrition info). Although the slice of pizza was more calories than I would have liked I ended up still within my range for the day (except for sodium). I was so happy! I ended my day knowing that I can have pizza as long as I plan for it.
When I got up this morning I got on the scale and my weight was actually down. It's probably good that I had the pizza early in my restart so I can plan my weekly meetings with the kids and know that no matter where we eat as long as I make good choices it'll all be ok.
