Danger Ahead!

Saturday, January 12, 2008

It's the weekend-- a well known danger zone. And so far I have had mixed results. First, I talked my husband out of the healthy meal he wanted to cook and into getting pizza. That is falling right into old habits. But, on the plus side, I ate a salad and fruit with my dinner, THEN had 2 pieces of pizza and counted all the food on the SP nutrition tracker. I did go over my calories for the day, but not by much. This morning I had a healthy breakfast. The leftover pizza is going in the garbage.

Pizza does have a place in a healthy diet--and I did control myself, so that is a definate positive! My husband said he felt bloated and overfull--he ate more pizza than I did. I felt pretty great actually. I could have done better, but I did make a baby step toward having a healthy relationship with pizza.

My next weekend challenge is to exercise. I usually skip the treadmill on the weekends because we ski or snowshoe, but the snow is a little icky right now so we won't be doing outdoor activities. So I need to exercise at least one of the days this weekend. That's the goal. Maybe I'll find a great reward for myself if I do that!!

    It's great that you were able to control yourself with the pizza. If you don't want to give up those foods, then there is no choice but to learn to eat less of them. Keep up the good work.
