Eating bad habits

I warned you that I would be eating pizza the next day— It was due to the fact a couple of co-workers of mine at this new job wanted me to try this taco pizza and I had never had it but I love tacos and I love pizza, so I was all in. I couldn’t say no to pizza, very hard habit to break. lol. Everybody has their vices; pop, cake, pasta, cigarettes, etc. & mine is pizza. A good pizza is one way to my heart. Well, anyways, we ordered the pizza and also decided to order some parm bites, which wasn’t my idea but I went along with it since I had never had them, and both were VERY GOOD! lol Not the best towards my macros (my macro goals went out the door the whole damn day) I knew I wouldn’t hit my goals and would ultimately end up being over in everything by A LOT. l made my choice, I deal with the consequences in doing so. 

12AM: Work break 

  • East of Chicago taco pizza (2 slices)
  • East of Chicago parm bites (3-4)
  • East of Chicago marinara sauce

It’s safe to say Thursday was full of bad choices. I ordered Arby’s because I had gotten home late and I had less than a hour to get around for work, so it was the quick route and closest to my house.
