So I read that more calories are consumed by Americans on Superbowl Sunday than on any other day of the year except Thanksgiving! That’s such a crazy statistic, and one I have no desire to be a part of. Fortunately:
a) I’m not a football fan
b) many of the traditional Superbowl foods are just not appealing to me, whether I’m watching my weight or not (I’m not a fan of chili, spicy chicken wings or beer)
c) the friends who host our church’s annual Superbowl party have 4 cats, to which I am highly allergic. The 2 years I went, my breathing was so badly affected that I’ve decided it’s just not worth it now. I happily send my husband and son off to enjoy the festivities. I will stay home with my little girl, who is sick with a cold anyway.
It’s been a reasonable week on program. I had the same cold as my daughter now has from Mon-Wed, which meant I had no energy to exercise, but on the plus side my appetite was diminished as well. I did manage the treadmill on Thursday & Zumba today. I stuck to grapes and avoided the chips & dip at an after-work mingling event on Friday night. My plans for today which would have involved navigating pizza and other goodies got canceled due to a forecast storm. I’m hopeful that I’ve said goodbye to another couple of pounds this week. I guess we’ll see on Monday at my weigh-in.
