Oops

Morning! I ended up staying up way too late last night because I was watching Changeling with Angelina Jolie. Well, not with her, she was just in the movie. 😉 It was so good that I couldn’t turn it off and before I knew it, it was almost 2am! Eek.

I made a mistake last night because after I posted, I waited until I was ravenous to start thinking about food. I had been craving pizza, so I figured why not. I ended up ordering from Domino’s and I got a Medium thin crust pizza with green peppers and onions, no cheese. This was the first time I ever ordered a pizza with no cheese, and it was really good! I didn’t even miss the cheese, and I feel like I cured my pizza craving. So I started eating the pizza:

And then before too long:

It was all gone! I ate an entire medium pizza myself… Oops. I made the mistake of waiting until I was way past the point of hungry, so I inhaled the pizza so fast that I didn’t even realize it was disappearing before my eyes. This morning, I woke up with a stomach ache…

I went on the Domino’s website to look up the nutritionals and found all the information here. They have nutrition facts for entire pizzas (so I guess I’m not alone here) and to be honest, it wasn’t as bad as I was thinking. The entire pizza had 765 calories and 26 grams of fat. While this is more than I usually eat for any meal, I was thinking it was going to be a lot worse than that. I still am not too proud of myself, but oh well! I think next time I need to make a salad or something else to go with the pizza and ration out half of it at the beginning and put the rest away before I eat it all. 🙂

This morning I woke up and was craving waffles! I used the same mix as last time, which is gluten free. I just randomly bought this mix and a few people asked if it tastes different than normal waffle mix, and the answer is not really, but its a little bit sweet. I love having time on the weekends to make whatever I want for breakfast!

I had two waffles with nonfat Fage 0%, almond butter, and 2 sliced kiwis on the side. (Side note: can you tell that I got an enormous box of kiwis last weekend from Costco? I’ve been having them every day and there’s still a ton left!) These waffles were awesome! I love the addition of almond butter (to anything) and I’m feeling really satisfied. I’ve missed waffles!

I’m now sipping on coffee on my new mug from Wisconsin:

🙂 My boyfriend got me this as a souvenir from his cheese tasting trip this past week. I love it!

I’m off to run a few errands then go to work! I’ll be back later. Happy Saturday!
