Day 17.... I did a spectacular job... until supper. Then the pizza sucked me in. Happens every time. I love pizza like no other food. I don't know what it is about it. Anyone have any suggestions on how to eat pizza without being a maniac? I ate FOUR pieces. Now, I will say, in my own defense that I used to eat a WHOLE LOT more pieces than four. I certainly have toned it down, but honestly, I had to MAKE myself stop at four. And it was SUPER HARD.
On another note, I still did not exercise. *sigh* I feel like such a loser! But here is what I did do. I got up super early and went to see my gastroenterologist. So early, in fact, that AFTER the appointment, my daughter and I went out to breakfast and it was only around 8:30 in the morning. I had breakfast at First Watch where I ate their Lean Machine breakfast which was fat free scrambled eggs, a turkey sausage patty that was so good I could have devoured ten of them, four slices of tomato, and an english muffin. It was EXCELLENT. My tummy was quite happy. After that we came back home and I worked on trying to take a nap, and that did not work out. I kept getting interrupted. Then after a while I had some corn chowder and an apple and some peanut butter for lunch. Then I attempted to take another nap, as I was really tired! No luck. More interruptions. I spent the evening studying for my Anatomy Quiz and ended up eating too much pizza. *sigh* Oh well.
Something I want to write about tonight is WATER! I've been drinking a whole bunch of water lately and I have learned some interesting things about it. Here they are:
1. I love the fact that I can drink as much water as I want with no calories. That makes my meal much better.
2. My skin is changing! I have absolutely NO acne and my skin feels sooooo silky and smooth. That happened the last time I started drinking a lot of water too.
3. If I drink a glass of water before, a glass of water during and a glass of water after my meal, I feel good and full when I'm done eating. I did not heed this advice with the pizza and look where it got me! I was up all night with reflux.
Soooo drink your water, kiddies! It does a body good! Gearing up for the weekend. Hope yours is wonderful. I sure do have a lot on my agenda!
Peace and love to all,
Me at the end of a very long day!
