Mondays, Cats, Pizza, and weigh in.....

It's Monday again! I am so happy to be feeling good this morning! Feeling good is one of those things I tend to take for granted...until I feel bad! So this morning I am especially grateful for my health.


Last night I was playing around, taking pictures of my cats. The first two are of Cloe. Cloe is a sweetheart of a cat. She is sweet and shy and snuggly and has captured our hearts in a special way.






The secend set of photos is of Agnes. Agnes and Cloe are as different as two cats can possibly be! Agnes is mischevious, curious, and too smart for her own good. She needs to be right in the center of whatever we happen to be trying to do. She hates closed doors and loves to open drawers, doors, and cabinets to see what might be inside. She definitely keeps us laughing at her antics!






OK...so on to yesterday's menu. I have absolutely no idea of my points yesterday, but here's what I ate. We rushed out the door early for church with coffee in hand, skipping breakfast.

After church we went down to Seaport Village to our favorite little hole-in-the-wall pizza place. We normally get the Chicago style pizza but this time we opted to try the New York style. We decided we like the Chicago better. Anyway, I had two and a half slices. I threw away the biggest part of the crust and just ate the part with the toppings on it. I had a diet coke with it. It always cracks me up to drink a diet coke along with a million calories worth of fat and carbs!






Later on in the evening I had some popcorn which I sprayed with cannola oil spray and sprinkled with a mixture of seasalt and stevia, giving it a flavor similar to kettle corn. I also had a bowl of sugar free, fat free pudding. That was it for the day. Pizza and a snack....not the most health concious day but I'm good with it.



Finally...my weigh in. I am down exactly a pound from last week. Considering my pizza party and not feeling well or walking last week...I'm pretty satisfied with a pound down. If I lose a pound every week, in a year I will be 52 pounds thinner! Yeah!!!

You are making me hungry! So, what's the diff between NY and Chicago style? I'm afraid to ask... as I might run out to have some pizza after you say.

WTG on the weight... you are working this plan the right way... KUTGW!

Wow! Thanks Kelly! I'm gonna check it out as soon as I get dinner out of the way!

Grace...I'm only going by the difference at the place we go to, cause goodness knows I don't know anything about east coast stuff being here in San Diego! But at this particular pizza joint the Chicago style is like a pie....like a pie you would make in a pie pan. It's a deep crust filled with pizza toppings and cheese the way a pie is filled with fruit or whatever. It's REALLY good! The one was had yesterday was their New York style...and it was ok but nothing to write home about.

Thanks for the support! I feel like I'm finally handling my eating in a "live in the real world" way.
