Hey y'all. Sorry. This weekend was absolutely crazy. I received both really good and really bad personal news towards the end of the week, so it was a roller coaster ride. I did find out that I'm going to Nicaragua for work May 3-6 so I will have to pause the pizza diet. I don't know how much control I will have over what I eat there, so I will just resume the diet when I get back.
Anyway, Friday was really, really hard to stick to the diet. I guess this just goes to show that all diets are hard to stick to, even pizza diets. I had a mentor breakfast in the morning, which is why I had the frittata and bagel. I didn't want to be rude! I didn't plan well so I didn't have time to have pizza beforehand and I was super hungry. FAIL. I also received some of the bad news Friday so I cut my workout short. Everything will be fine though. Then I had leftover pizza for lunch and I ordered Woodstocks pizza (http://woodstocksdavis.com, I love that place but it's expensive) for an early dinner because I had to go to my roommate/bestie's birthday celebration that evening and she didn't choose a place that served pizza. I got whole wheat half&half pizza which means you can choose two of their gourmet pizzas and put one on half of your pizza and the other on the other half. I chose one healthier option and one less healthy option that I'd been dying to try: one side was Grateful Veg, with zesty red sauce, mozzarella, olives, bell pepper, white onions, mushrooms, and fresh Roma tomatoes, and the other side was Bangers & Tots, with zesty red sauce, mozzarella, applewood smoked bacon, Italian sausage, red onions, and tater tots. No regrets!
My friend's birthday dinner was TORTURE because we went to Sauced, a BBQ place in Sacramento with all of the Southern fixin's I'm used to, being from the South. I just watched everyone eat their various forms of meat while I sadly chewed on some cole slaw. It was the most depressing thing ever. I did get to try a few bites of things when everyone got full. I wasn't even hungry because I had pizza beforehand but it smelled OH SO GOOD.
