“Once you got the ring on your finger, you no longer could care less about football,” Kevin has said to me on more than once occasion teasing me about my lack of interest in the sport itself.
I don’t make stories up or lie. I did try to understand the game that I never completely did understand in my youth, when we were first dating. But truth be told I just didn’t get it and as much as I loved him, I still wasn’t getting it even after we sat and watched a few games that first year of dating. But I did give it the old college try, give me credit for something I suppose.Are You Ready For SuperBowl 2013??
That said, I still do watch the Superbowl. Not so much for the actual game, but for the food that we make and serve. Come on who doesn’t like chips, dip and even buffalo wings? Not the best food as far as calories I know, but then again nothing that tastes good for the most part is really good for you. And I don’t eat like this very often to be quite honest.Slim by the Summer Week 3
However, I am on week three now of Slim by the Summer challenge and have been truly trying to be good since my hell week of PMS. But of course, Super Bowl Sunday was thrown into the mix. I was good the whole past week (even skipping cake at my niece’s birthday party on Saturday night), so I was allowing myself a bit of bad eating habits for this one night.
Hell, it only comes around once a year and will be honest this is more of a celebration for me then anything (by the way I couldn’t care less who wins!), because after this weekend I get my football loving husband back until it starts all over again later in the year. Yes, during football seasonI truly become a football widow on Saturdays (college football) and Sundays (NFL Football) with Kevin sitting on the couch watching his 60” LED TV with Football plastered all over it.Fruits Loops Have Become My Weakness!!
So this week’s topic for Slim by the Summer is as follows: “One thing I NEED to change in my diet!” Well as soon as I saw this topic I knew I had to address my Superbowl binge eating. But for all intents in purposes, I have been mostly good other than that on the eating aspect this week, but still I do love my snacks, such as eating Fruit Loops that were purchased for my girls (yes I am still a kid where this delicious cereal is concerned and just can’t help myself). However for the most part, I have been sticking to three basic meals, tons of water (not so difficult for me, because I love drinking water), and limiting my snacking as much as I can. I have also added back in a bit of exercise to round things off.
But the big game again being this past Sunday, did put a wrench in my eating habits. Can anyone say, “Are you ready for some football?” Sorry for making excuses, but I truly had to eat some of the food Kevin prepared. But again that only happens so infrequently that I don’t feel terrible, but still felt the need to mention it in my weekly post for this. But today is a new day indeed and now that Football is over and I have my husband back (on borrowed time, but still), I am back on game!!
