First of all....Yeah Packers!!! I'm pumped for the Superbowl! The only drawback is that I don't live in Green Bay anymore, so I'm missing out on all of the local hype.
This victory also brings back a lot of fun memories of the 90's, the last time the Pack went to the Superbowl. We lived there and I had two elementary school aged boys. Packer fever was rampant in our home. We had a blast.
Back to the future: That game was a nail biter! My husband and I looked forward to watching it together. I set up a small buffet of snacks (including Wisconsin cheese, of course.) I figured that would be our dinner. I knew I would probably go over my daily calorie range, but, hey, it was a special occaision. Well, for this chick, it was a free for all! I don't even want to think about how much I ate. (And by the way, those little cream puff things from Sams are evil. We had leftovers in the freezer from Christmas and I ate them all!)
Here's the kicker: Yesterday morning, I was 0.6 lbs away from my goal weight. Today, I'm 3.6 lbs away. 3 pounds fo crap in my system! Today I'm already planning to do yoga and bicycle to burn as many calories as possible.
What I learned: I may be near my goal weight, but I still have a lot to learn. There is nothing wrong with treating myself once in a while, but self control is something I have to work on. Just because it's available, doesn't mean I have to eat it!
Today is a new day...and a good one! Go Pack Go!!!
