A Blast from the Past...sort of

Sunday, May 05, 2013



I had a real blast from the past recently.

My place of work decided to reward us for a safety record.



They treated us to some pizza.



And not just pizza, Pizza Hut pizza which was my favorite.



I remember going to their buffet and having five, six pieces of pizza and more, and not thinking of it.



Of course, I cancelled out all the calories by going to the salad bar.



That works, riiiight?



NOT!

Well, I hadn't had a slice of pizza for two years now, and I felt a little deprived. So I decided to have me a little bit of a slice.



It's amazing how much your taste changes when you've been used to healthy eating.



I ate that small piece, and YUK!



It was so greasy,



and salty,



and I spent hours trying to get the greasy taste ouf of my mouth.



It may be two more years before I have another slice, if then.



I found I can do without all that fat,



And not feel deprived.



after all, the alternative was killing me.





So, one challenge past. Today is Cinco de Mayo.



With all that food that goes with it.



So bon appetit!



NOT!

    The last time I had pizza it made me sick. I haven't had it for a while and don't miss it at all.

    emoticon When my place of business celebrates by ordering pizza, I always order a salad. Like you, I've learned my lesson. That pizza is just not for me anymore!

    Our tastes do change, don't they? Isn't that emoticon ?

I had some cheese pizza last weekend and so immediately regretted the way it made me feel that it will be a while before I do that again.

Great blog.

    Love this blog, and I agree with the tastes changing. Once you're on track, you can't go back ! At least not without saying, "I remember it tasting better than that!"

    I have a soft spot for pizza. When I fall off the wagon it's typically pizza.

    I could easily do without pizza, but DH has to have pizza at least once a week. Great motivational blog. Maybe I can show it to him and get him to cut down to once a month. We can only hope! Have a great week.

    Pizza is still my trigger food. Not only can I not eat one slice,but it has to come with wings and I have to drink pop. Disaster! I know what you mean about he taste though. Last time I went to the drs. And I got a good report, I decided I was craving a Big Mac. I hadn't been to a McDonalds in over a year. Ended up throwing most of it away. Way to salty! No more emoticon for you! Impressive!
