Pizza is a very, very bad idea
Friday, February 08, 2013
I feel gross and it’s all my fault. This morning I had the opportunity to pack my healthy chicken and broccoli rice, which is around 300 calories. But I’ve been eating that for lunch and dinner for the past week. So I decided instead I’d order a sub from Jimmy Johns, the Vito at 600 calories. I knew it’d be high, but still within my calorie range.
But my co-worker, who usually orders JJs with me, decided she didn’t want a sandwich (it’s a long story) and so she wanted pizza.
*sigh* I gave in. I knew it was bad for me, but I figured, once won’t kill me. After lunch I changed my nutrition counter to include…*sigh again* 4 slices of pepperoni pizza, at roughly…1,300 calories. That is 1,000 (one thousand) calories more then what I would have had if I’d just packed my own lunch. It’s over 700 calories more than if I’d ordered the sandwich. After doing the math I just feel sick.
I would say that with these lunches and the cake and ice cream birthdays every week, my office is making me fat. But I have to be honest with myself; I’m the one who ate it. I could have said no. It’s healthy to say no ( a lot healthier then a Papa John’s Pepperoni pizza). I could have brought my own lunch. Or at the very least, I could have run the idea through my nutrition tracker beforehand. I know better. I know better! I KNOW better!!!!
I guess I’ll just have to be extra good at dinner.
