Emma vs. Pizza
Thursday, December 06, 2012
Last night, I made Scalloped Potato Casserole, which is delish and only 235 calories per 1 cup serving. I always have it with steamed broccoli and get a good helping of dinner for under 300 calories.
Last night, that SO did not cut it. I was still really hungry even after all that. So I tried chewing some gum, which got me about an hour. Then, I had a little tea, which got me another 30 minutes.
Then C, in all his infinite wisdom (and metabolism!) baked a frozen pizza. He was still super hungry after the casserole too. I think I need to find a way to get more fiber & protein in there. But, ohhh Sparkers, do you know how great pizza smells when you're hungry?
C offered me a slice, and I said no. Even though Fatty Emma was jumping up and down screaming, 'YES GOD PLEASE PIZZA NOW.' But a single slice of pizza would have been nearly 400 calories and would have wrecked up my day. So I reminded myself of my self-control plant - how it needed this "no" in order to start regrowing. And how I needed to prove to myself that I can still pass up food I know I don't need.
At 9:00, my stomach was genuinely growling, so I had two pieces of toast. 160 calories vs 400 calories? This I can handle.
I whooped that pizza temptation's BUTT and finished the day at around 1600 calories, right in the middle of my range. I've been shooting for the 1500's, but I'll take it.
