So this is pretty small, but a big deal for me! I have been pretty tight on my diet and exercise lately, and was doing really well today. I am calorie counting and allowing a net caloric intake of 1257 a day (so if I exercise, I can take in more). I track what I eat and how much I exercise on livestrong.
Anyways, my son wanted Pizza Hut for dinner. Apparently they have this $10 special where you can get a pizza, bread sticks, and cinnamon sticks for $10. Talk about temptation!
Well, because I had already done Zumba today (burned 762 calories), and been faithful to my good nutrition, I allowed myself to eat some pizza in moderation (I had a 1300 calorie allowance for the day left). I had one slice of pepperoni pizza, one bread stick, and one cinnamon bread stick. This is big for me, because usually I would just jump right into the box and eat with wild abandon, not caring about calories or the effect of the meal. I used to be able to easily put down 4 slices of pizza, 3-4 bread sticks, and probably half of the cinnamon sticks.
The funny thing is, the 250 calorie pizza slice didn't taste nearly as good as I thought it would.
