Since we had brunch plans this morning to celebrate mother's day with my mother and grandmother my husband asked me what I want for dinner. My first thought was one of my favorite's, Pad Thai, but I became discouraged when I couldn't figure out the calories. Then we thought about going out for dinner, but I also knew that bread baskets and salad could easily lead to more calories than I bargained for. Then out of the blue I looked at him and said "I want pizza". He immediately started talking about thin crust, multi grain dough, I interrupted and repeated, no I want real pizza. He double checked to make sure I was serious and then ordered pepperoni pizza from pizza pizza.
Now many of you (including my sister for sure) are thinking, are you kidding me, you measured out rum, but are going to eat pepperoni pizza. A few weeks ago I learned that pizza pizza has all of their nutritional information online. Also since I had been very careful planning brunch knowing that my dinner may be higher in calories.
So, I got my pizza and ate all 3 pieces with dipping sauce and I stayed very close to my calories. I did not exercise today so as of 7pm I am over by 130 calories, but I can easily work that off with 20 minutes on the bike which is where I am heading now. - update - The thought of the bike bored me so I am combining exercise with a social activity and going for a walk with a friend.
I still can't believe sometimes that I can have days like today, days with 3 pieces of pizza, and still be on track to lose weight, but then I realize that I can do anything I set my mind to.
