How I feel generally: Fine so far.
How my tummy feels: Great! A little hungry to be honest. What is wrong with me? I just ate pizza all day and I'm still hungry. Lol.
Extras: One grande Starbucks flat white, one cake pop, one cocktail, one pack of Scooby fruit snacks.
Last night (Sunday) I got a Papa John's double play, two medium two-topping pizzas. I got olives and jalapenos on one, and green pepper and mushroom on the other. I thought I was going to be able to do this month of pizza without spending much dough (ha! that was cheesy -okay, I can't stop), but after just one day, I'm beginning to think this might get expensive. I plan to tally it up and compare it to my food costs of other months. I am not including the Starbucks and cocktail costs because a gift card and a friend paid for those, respectively. It was a treat-yo'self kind of day after finishing my most recent phase of research.
I wanted to lay out some ground rules. The plan is to eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, every day, for one month. I am supplementing this with whatever fruit, salads, beverages, or snacks I want. I'm not going to restrict the extras. Those extras will be listed each day, along with the slice count, my exercise, cost, how I feel generally, and how my tummy feels. I am also not going to change my exercise and training. The term "pizza" can encompass many things, and I plan to eat it in a variety of forms: restaurant, fast food, homemade, flatbread, thin crust, thick crust, breakfast pizza, dessert pizza, etc.
Join me on my pizza journey!
