Last week, when I didn't post my weigh-in, I was up to 240 lbs. Yes, I gained 10 lbs. in a week. This morning, I was still 240 lbs. So I didn't do anything right this week to drop any of it.
I was sitting here thumbing through my memory, re-visiting all the bad choices I've made in the last couple of weeks. I finally got disgusted and yelled at myself, "Good Lord Tammy!! Have you done anything RIGHT in these last two weeks? Have you done anything that wasn't completely STUPID???" I really had to think hard to come up with something.
All of a sudden a Papa John's Pizza commercial came on, touting their Super Bowl special....any large pizza for $10!!!! I immediately thought how good that sounded. Then it hit me. Hey!!! I haven't had any pizza!! And not just in the last 2 weeks. I realized I haven't ordered or eaten any pizza in the last 8 MONTHS!! Oh I've threatened to a couple of times. But I haven't done it. I haven't given in, not even once, to the evil pizza pie.
We have a local chain restaurant here in Georgia called Mellow Mushroom. The pizza I've always ordered from them is a large with everything on it (including my fave topping - meatballs), and it's $28. Papa John's best is $10....their's is $28. Yes, it's that damn good. I've had many a' day dream about that pizza in the last several months. But I've resisted. So....in my sea of bad choices, I did one thing right, or at least not completely wrong. I haven't graced the threshold of their eatery with my rotund presence. Oh, and I also hired a personal trainer. :)
Speaking of the trainer, I was going to make something quick and easy for dinner tonight, before my niece gets here to spend the night with me. Chicken burgers. Then I remembered the trainer saying, "Never eat carbs for dinner". Damn. There went the bun for my burger. So I dug around in the frig to see what kind of veggies I had, and decided to broil some in the oven real quick. Dinner was a Chinese chicken burger...I spiced it up with some s&p, garlic, adobo, ginger & Chinese 5-spice powder. And the veggies were some baby portabella mushrooms, button mushrooms, red onions & green bell pepper broiled in a little olive oil and flavored with some s&p, minced garlic & adobo. Delish!!
I'll be back tomorrow morning to post the official weigh-in, but at least the agony is over. 'Nite friends. :)
