Yep, I had another pizza attack tonight thanks to DH bringing a box home and me not being able to control myself.

Help me come up with a workout tonight that'll help. I normally do 1-2 miles on the treadmill and 4-6 on the bike. Thoughts?!

Anything is better than sitting! Just move your booty!

I feel your pain... pizza is my biggest weakness !!! Think of it as a slip and not a fall and do your penance (exercise...lol)

water water water and more water. And when you finish that WHACK YOUR DH OVER THE HEAD with the empty pizza box.

And then the NEXT TIME you have a pizza craving? I like the lean cuisine panini's but I just eat it open faced and it's solves my pizza craving :)

Thanks guys. I've been drinking water like crazy today and the scale is only up a pound from this morning (it's usually up 2-3 by the evening) so I think the water is helping.

I did 6 miles on the bike as the treadmill in my crappy apt gym was out again. Better than nothing I guess.

Here's to hoping my 4 slices didn't add 4 pounds to my butt! =P

Ack, pizza is evil! I don't know that I could withstand the temptation if my hubby brought that home. This sounds like a trigger food for you, too. Can you ask him to help you and not bring pizza home anymore?

What type of pizza was it? Deep dish? Regular or thin crust? What was on it?

I only ask because pizza doesn't have to be evil or off limits. With a bunch of kids and a husband pizza is pretty popular here. We order 2 medium pizzas (the slices are smaller then a large) and one has just cheese (not extra cheese) and the other has what the husband likes. 2 slices with some veggies or pineapple and chicken (my favs!) and I am good to go, don't feel deprived and didn't sabotage my entire day. We get our pizza from a local place and it seems to be A LOT less greasy then the big chains.

I agree with the others also. Drink lots of water and excersize. You'll feel better. That's what I plan on doing today. Somebody (me) is getting ready for 2 birthday parties and somebody (me) "sampled" her share of some chips and french onion dip. :dizzy: I am hoping I will be soar after my workout so I am not tempted to do too much sampling as I make the THREE birthday cakes I have to make! LOL!

Could you ask your DH to be more considerate and NOT bring pizza in the house?

05-13-2009, 10:03 AM
Yikes, We have a pizza ban in our house because I'd do the same thing. Can't resist the stuff! If DH wants it he takes our oldest out to CiCi's. That way there's none coming home.

I like to put Pizza sauce, a bit of Mozzarella, and a bunch of veggies on Lowcal English muffins. After two of them I'm usually over my craving. It's pretty good!

Have you tried making your own pizza so that you can count every single calorie in it and know just how much you can have? I load mine with onion, mushrooms, green pepper, black olives turkey Italian sausage and turkey pepperoni on a whole grain pizza crust. Ant he sauce I use is only 10cal per serving, and I go a little light on cheese.

I'm also weak when it comes to pizza. I've been having us make our own. I use an 8" whole wheat pita and I buy a thicker, white pita for my boyfriend. He puts pepperoni on his, but I get to stick with veggies on mine and I find it's not too bad.

I love pizza! Love it, love it, love it! So, if I want some, I make it at home, as healthy as I can as for your workout on the treadmill. If you ever want to mix up your workout on the treadmill, turn sideways and gallop for 1 minute and then turn the other way and gallop for another minute.

05-13-2009, 11:43 AM
Yeah, I'm definitely making mine next time. It was loaded with pep and sausage. I read online that it was like 400 calories a slice. Yowza!

Luckily, no gain today. I ended up drinking 4L of water yesterday and I'm keeping up the same pace today so hopefully I won't gain! *fingers crossed*

Pizza is my most "triggering" food. I don't eat it at all anymore because I can't just have 1 or 2 slices.

Hopefully the DH knows not to bring it home anymore! :)

05-13-2009, 12:26 PM
Oh yeah, he got the lecture about being an enabler! :)

I don't think my husband knows how to buy food. He needs an explicit list and often directions where the food exists in the store :) Although if we are in a store together, sometimes he will bring stuff up to me and ask about it.

My husband too, though we've never gone into a store together, even after 14 years. I've asked him too, mainly so he can see the prices!

I was going to say that making pizza at home is a great idea. I do that a lot. You can get whole wheat Bobilli pizza crusts, low sugar pizza sauce, low fat cheese...the ideas are endless. I do make pizza at home. The boys LOVE to help and that way I can control what I am eating and everyone can have what they want on their pizzas.

Pizza is definitely a huge weakness for me as well. I make mini ones with low cal english muffins, sauce, very little cheese, and loaded with veggies. It usually takes care of my cravings. Although, if somebody brought in restaurant pizza I would most likely do the same thing as you did. lol

the final countdown

I too love, love, love the pizza. I've been making my own with pita bread - no sugar speg. sauce - peppers - turkey pepperoni and 1 serv. of motzarella cheese. It all comes in at about 230 calories and taste fab. I want to figure out how to make different kinds like bar-b-q chicken and taco pizza that keep the calories between 200-350.

05-17-2009, 10:42 PM
i, too, loooooooove pizza.

the ONLY pizza we buy is South Beach pizzas or Kashi Margherita Thin Crust.

Amy's makes a great frozen pizza too :)
