I cannot tell you what an anticlimax the pizza was! I can’t even blame the (very thin but surprisingly tasty for something gluten-free) base. It was the toppings that were unfulfilling. The cheese too strong, the low fat salami and bacon just too salty. All in all, a dismal effort. As I lay in bed (for hours!!!) later trying to sleep I pondered on a topping that would have been nicer. couldn’t really come up with something.
Perhaps it is just because I am not a big pizza fiend. I don’t mind pizza but it isn’t something I crave. Hot chips – yes; chinese / thai food – yes; chocolate – yes; but pizza… not so much!
Lesson learned. I suspect my antipathy and inability to make a dinner decision last night was also a hint that I was going to be hard to please. Tonight I am back with an oldie but a (winter) goodie. Delicious fillet steak and mashed potato. Yee-ha! (Complemented by my favourite red wine – Wirra Wirra Church Block… on sale at the bottle shop for $17!)
I am not yet counting points again and overdid breakfast (after only a 20min walk!). I had a weird combination of leftovers (baked beans – which needed to be eaten, with rice and the last of the low fat salami). Not too bad but it would have been high in points if I was counting.
I skipped lunch (as I do so often on my holiday… I eat breakfast mid-late morning and have an afternoon snack instead, allowing me to have higher-point breakfasts) but had mid afternoon home-made popcorn, including butter and flavouring. I was out earlier and tempted to buy some corn chips, but resisted. I suspect the popcorn with the butter is just as damaging… but still…. corn chips are more of a danger food for me!
So, still no point-counting. I am not sure when I will start. I had that panicked feeling today… ‘what if I have put on kilos and kilos?’ I have been known to gain 8+ kgs in 4 weeks. I don’t think I have been that ‘evil’ but you never know…..
