Nasty pizza leaves me feeling like crap this morning; Weekly measurements.

I had my weekly cheat meal last night, and it was not too good. I think I’ve eaten my last Papa John’s pizza. I don’t know if their quality has declined or if my tastes have changed (or perhaps both), but I just didn’t enjoy the meal very much. The pizza was doughy, salty and disgustingly greasy. This morning I feel horrible: I’m bloated, hot and just… not feeling like myself. I also slept very poorly last night; I was very hot and woke up frequently. I was just talking to Lisa, and she feels the exact same way. She said, “Let’s not order pizza anymore.” I agreed.

I said to Lisa, “You know, we could have free meals that tastes great, but won’t leave us feeling like crap the next morning. I could make us a couple of great tasting burgers on the grill with 96% lean ground beef, or some fresh pasta with a homemade sauce served along with a nice crusty bread and some olive oil.”

Of course sometimes we all get cravings for a certain food and nothing else will do. For example, every so often I get an incredibly powerful craving for BBQ pork, fries and garlic bread. I don’t particularly like how I feel the next day after eating like that, but I’m not going to try and pretend that I won’t eat that meal again because I know that I will. I think those kinds of meals will be few and far between, though. Right now the thought of pizza makes me want to puke, so I doubt I’ll be having pizza – even good pizza – again for a long, long time. I think next Saturday night I’m going to make those burgers!

It’s time for my weekly measurements. I seem to be maintaining pretty well. Everything is pretty much the same as last week. I show a very slight body fat increase (and this may be due to the water I’m retaining from last night’s cheat meal): 6.9% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall). Again, I expect my body fat will continue to slowly rise over the next few weeks and will stabilize at around 8% body fat, which I will then maintain until my bulk.

I’ve got the whole day off! The house is clean, the yardwork is done, I have no training or cardio scheduled and Lisa is going shopping all day long. Yep, sounds like a great day for loud action movies. 🙂
