Pizza and Wings

Today was an odd Saturday. My lovely cold woke me up at 6:30 am and wouldn't let me get back to sleep!! I've felt out of whack all day.

Breakfast was a honey wheat thin
With a heaping mess of almond butter for dipping, and some blueberries on the side. It tasted delicious but I had the worst stomachache for hours after.

Even though my tummy was really bothering me, I still had an appetite. I swear, there is really not much that can stop me from eating! So, a few hours later I made lunch.
I had cracked pepper turkey and reduced fat cheddar on some Dr. Kracker seeded spelt crackers. I also had broccoli and garlic hummus, frozen grapes, and a few barbecue popchips. I love meals that have a lot of different foods to choose from. I get bored eating just one thing so this was perfect!

I spent most of the day being stressed out by school work, so a splurge meal was in order. We ordered from Mama Mia's - GREAT pizza!

Bryan's pizza...
Pepperoni and mushrooms, and then he added bacon bits and sriracha at home.

When I opened my pizza, which was supposed to be buffalo chicken, I oddly got a whiff of barbecue. Sure enough, they gave me barbecue chicken pizza. AHHH! Good thing I had ordered a slice in addition to my pie :)
It had pepperoni, onions, and sweet peppers. Plus, Bryan was nice enough to call Mia's for me and they said they would send over the correct pizza. Phew!

While I waited I also had a chicken wing...
Some caramel popcorn with melted dark chocolate dreams. HOLY YUM.

And then....
My pizza came! SO GOOD! Especially when I slather it in blue cheese. This was one of my favorite things to eat in college. Especially at 1am. Probably explains why I was a little plumper than I am now :) I ate a few bites and then stuck it in the fridge to let it cool down because I prefer cold pizza over hot. Anyone with me? Or am I alone on this one...

My splurge meal definitely helped keep my mind off school. What really cheered me up though was a fabulous surprise package from my dad. When I was younger, The Big Chill soundtrack was constantly on in my house. I listened to that thing over and over again. Never saw the movie, but loved the music. I had forgotten all about it until I heard "Whiter Shade of Pale" on an episode of House which really made me reminisce. I emailed my dad to tell him I was thinking about how great the CD was and so he sent me a copy! It's seriously amazing. Great hits like "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night, "It's the Same Old Song" by the Four Tops, and "Good Lovin" by The Rascals. The music gives me such great memories and it put me in a much better mood :)

My cold is still really awful so I'm thinking I'll call today a rest day and pick up with my workouts tomorrow.

I also see some dessert in my future...


  1. MMMMM all of that looks amazing! I didn't discover the joys of ranch dressing on pizza or fries until college so I attribute my weight gain to that one thing alone.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Haha my blog is featuring some pizza in blue cheese dressing too! we are too much alike.

    ohh and woman, that saying "starve a cold" never worked for me! I could be stuffed and not taste a thing but still want food food food!
