Day 83: Pizza cave in

Submitted by BaylorBlondie on Tue, 07/18/2006 - 3:33pm.

The guys ordered pizza tonight since their new college football video game came out today.  I caved and had a slice.  I don’t think I have had pizza in months.  It was good but I am definitely not craving it and felt “blah” afterwards.  I decided to eat it because I was really hungry and it was sitting there already hot.  I admit that I gave into temptation by immediately satisfying my craving instead of taking time to prepare a healthier alternative.  Not the best move.  Afterwards, I was surprised at myself for doing this especially when I can resist temptation at work.  For instance, I have a jar of jellybeans sitting on my desk but I haven’t eaten a single one.   My coworkers come into my office all the time to feast on them.  For whatever reason, I can stare at jellybeans each day and not touch them but I can look at pizza for one second and eat it.

To make matters worse, I also ended up not walking tonight again.  Argh.  I don’t like to walk after dark alone so I stayed home.  I felt bad about eating the pizza and not working out but I was not about to walk through a nature preserve by myself, especially when I’ve seen a bobcat during the day.  Despite my desire to live healthier, things are preventing this.
