Pizza, headaches, and sunshine!

Today ends my six day weekend. I think over all Ive done pretty good. I find myself NOT wanting to blog when I don't have a good day of eating, so I am forcing myself to do this. (grin)

Yesterday I received a coupon in the mail for a FREE pizza. It was a gift to me for being a new resident in my neighborhood. I thought it would be fun for me and Skyler to order the pizza, and even more fun to eat it, know....I deserved it. (yeah right!!) After much thought, I decided that I was GOING to eat pizza. We went and got the pizza, and I am sad to admit that I probably ate half the pizza (or more) throughout the day. Needless to say, by that evening I felt yucky. The pizza had to much sodium in it so I felt puffy and sluggish. There is a definite difference in how my body responds to good food and not so good food.

Today the effects of all that sodium caught up with my high blood pressure. On this beautiful sunny Memorial day...I was dealing with a headache, a BAD one. I spent most of my day chugging water and swallowing Ibuprofen. (sigh!) Lesson learned, and I don't want to do that again.

Today I am back in full swing. In fact I am only at about 1000 calories for the day and that's pushing it. I think a yummy snack is in order for me tonight.

Rebeckah, Its great that you had the pizza. Its ok to have pizza when it fits in your calories. And when you over-do it, don't beat yourself up. Start fresh tomorrow. Each day your calorie slate is wiped clean for a fresh start. And I also LOVE when I end my day low on calories and get to go to the kitchen and find a treat. :)
