Day 3: I Am Not a Bad Person for Eating Pizza

Day 2 went well all in all.  I had to teach a class at work at 7-9 pm.  I got to work at 7:30 am.  It was a long day!  I have been having a protein shake and been pretty content most the day on just that.  I have a desk job, so it’s not like I’m burning a ton of calories throughout the day… and I have plenty of reserves (ha).  I was talking about not remembering hunger signals yesterday, but amazingly, my stomach started growling in the afternoon!

I went to the cafeteria around 2pm to grab something to eat.  It was past the lunch hour rush, so not a ton of options were out.  I didn’t have a real game plan other than portion control.  I looked at the salad bar, I swear, I considered it, but I decided on the pizza.  I had a lot of self deprecating thoughts about wanting it.  I had to tell myself that it’s ok to have a piece of pizza.  Normal people eat pizza.  Normal people don’t eat entire pizzas by themselves in secret… ummm…. I mean… not that I’ve done that… Anyhow.  I was hungry.  The pizza was what sounded good.  I ate one slice.  I carried on with my day.

What I didn’t do is say, “F- it.  I ate pizza. I might as well chase it with 5 more slices.”  That’s what I would have said 3 days ago. While I am far from where I want to be with my food choices, I made the best decision I could in the moment.  Little wins.

Maintaining momentum, starting Day 3!
