Yesterday was Friday and as usual the boy wanted to go play pinball.Usually I cook dinner before we go but the last time we went (I had only just discovered SP) I was teased all evening long by the smell of the pizza one of the guys had bought.
So this week I thought that having been good all week both on the food and exercise front, and having checked that I could 'afford' to have pizza (from a calories point of view) we ordered (well I got to pick) a 30 cm ham and mushroom wood over pizza. It smelled delicious. I was clutching the take away box all the way to the pinball room.
I pulled a slice, and took a bite.....the dough was ok, but the only taste I could get was salt, with a hint of the ham and the preserved mushrooms....no tasty tomato sauce, and the mozzarella was bland.
It hit me: the boy makes pizza at home from time to time...a lovely bread-like dough topped with a carefully prepared tomato base, concentrated in flavours...the pizza is then topped with some meat, but mostly veg and a little cheese....TASTY.
So the pinball pizza had a lot to live up to! I ate 3 slices (less than half), because I was hungy but I realised I had not enjoyed that. Before, I would have gobbled the lot!
When we got home my head was hurting, and I woke up this morning with a headache similar to that induced by low blood sugar. It felt like my body was rebelling against the non-nutricious food...so, no more!
So I made soup (lettuce..yes, really...courtesy of Gillian McKeith...tasty) and carrot and date muffins (yum) and I feel much more at peace with myself...or it could bee the 100 push-ups from the QFC challenge...
And the scales appear to have reached the high 85 ...2lbs lost since last weigh-in...I'll take that!
But I realise that I would not have got the, stayed with it for 3 weeks without all my wonderful new friends here... you know who you are, so thanks, and hope we have lots to celebrate together for months to come!
