In a way, I am glad that I took one meal off today and let me explain why. Today I only ate two slices of pizza. One slice was plain and the other had some ziti and vodka sauce on it. In the past I would have not stopped myself at two slices and I would have probably eaten up to five. However, I didn't even to think about stopping at two slices today, my body did the decision making for me. Half way through the second slice, I was down for the count and I really struggled to finish it. Experiencing this, while eating one of the best tasting foods I have ever eaten, makes me feel even more confident in the fact that my fiancee and I started cooking our own meals at home. The meals that we cook at home are very tasty as well but they don't make me feel crappy like the pizza did today. Eating unhealthy food like this every once and a while also serves as a reminder to your body, how it used to feel on an every day basis. I'll tell you what, I couldn't wait to go food shopping today for all of the healthy meals we planned for this up coming week. I am so extremely happy that I decided to embark on this mission to healthy. Because I will never go back to feeling ,like I did today, ever again.
I also decided today, that I needed a little break from the intense workout routines I have been executing for the last week. I learned this the hard way from past experiences. Working out hard for 7 days a week can take a toll on your body and can cause you to take a step backwards and that is the last thing I want to do. So being that it was Sunday and I had the day off, I decided to take my fiancee down to the basketball court near our apartment. I wanted to see if I still had the skills on the court. Well what started out as a friendly game of horse ended up turning into a competitive game in the rain. We ended up playing for an hour and a half in the rain and it was one of the most enjoyable workouts I had so far. I really enjoyed kicking her butt.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
