Ok, I feel better now.
I can't say I am super happy with what I ate today. It was one of those days where I was constantly running around in a slightly panicked way. I was approached by a student today who, in rapid-fire slightly broken English, outlined a very vague plan for some students to leave school order Chinese food for the school paper's year-end celebration (which I was shoulder-tapped to supervise). I expressed my dubiousness at this idea and suggested they order pizza instead. Pizza is easy. It comes to you when you call it. You need not go out into the world and seek it out. Plus, a student I know works at a pizza joint and gives us 50% off. It was around this time a latent synapse fired and I remembered I was to bring drinks for this celebration. Oops. All I could do was leave school during silent reading (foisting my class on my lovely neighbour, Kim) and go to the store! Meanwhile, I had a class to teach. Oh yeah. As the minutes passed, I got more and more worried about this fabled journey to fetch Chinese food. Luckily, the student from the morning came by and we nabbed the paper's editor from her class. I convinced them that the only thing to do was order pizza. They agreed. Much running around later, the deed was done. I was able to pop out and get some drinks, and we scrounged cups and napkins from places around the school.
In all my semi-panic and running around, I didn't even eat my snack! Plus, I was to supervise the kids in the library, so I was in the midst of all that pizza. Trapped. For an hour. How was I to resist??!!? Am I a machine? Am I made of steel? No. So I ate two very small pieces of veggie pizza for lunch. And a cookie.
When I got home, another wayward synapse fired and I remembered that we were supposed to have pizza for dinner!! Dang. Dang dang. Well, it's not like I don't enjoy pizza. Sigh. Ok. I ate my carrots as a snack before dinner. It was homemade pizza, so I tried to make my portion slightly thinner crust with a lot less cheese. We usually halve the thing, but I cut it so Jason's part was much larger. I ate one piece and then half of another. I was full. I haven't felt hungry all night.
I cringe a bit to think of eating all that pizza in one day...but then again, that's how much I would have had in one sitting before. I'll take the small victories. I also made sure to work out on the bike and do weights for 1/2 hr. and do my sit-ups. I just hope the scale won't hold a grudge for this one. I can hear it laughing now.
