Our Eagles looked awful!

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Yes they lost to the Saints by a field goal and it was a very painful game to watch. The only good news is that we don't have to watch them anymore this year so no more pain. I thought my DH was going to have a heart attack he gets so upset. I was thinking of how far I have come over the years when it comes to upsetting games. In the past I would have reached for unhealthy snacks to nibble on to sooth my frustration with my team. Now I prepare ahead of time my good nutritious meal and have it already to go and eat it when the time is right. So even though I am so disappointed with my team I am at least not disappointed with myself for turning to crap food when I am upset.
Woo hoo for me.
Now we will watch the Seahawks play the Saints next Sunday and hopefully they will do better.
Bright and sunny here today so I am off to walk the doggies their 4 miles. then we will most likely watch the Green Bay game which might be in record cold.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.

    Well being a Chiefs fan I can relate to your pain!! We looked like we had the game against the Colts in the bag and let it slip in the end!! Very frustrating!! But like you said at least we don't have to watch anymore!! emoticon

    Soory about you team losing. Some people do
get very upset. I was thrilled yesterday watching
our local boy beat Roger Federer in the Brisbane
International tennis Final. Hope the next game is
a good one, although it will be freezing when the
game is on so it will affect the play. Glad you have
good weather to go walking. It was too hot to walk
today, but I still have done 8215 steps. Great news
that you lost your 'bloat'. emoticon

    We were disappointed with the game too and are watching everyone freezing at the Green Bay game too. Second half starting now so I'll say goodbye and hope you are successful with only healthy snacks again! Good job with that!

    Those Saints are formidable opponents, unfortunately! I'm sorry the loss had such a miserable effect on your poor DH, Sallie... It's a major milestone, isn't it, to move beyond overeating as a "comfort response" to such disappointments, but we can look behind at that former response with great relief (and more than a little well-justified pride!). Last I heard, it was an unimaginable 5 in Green Bay!!

    There's only one word for those who actually go to the game vs. watching on TV: insane!!!!! It is dangerously cold. I do hope that the Packers do well, but I'M watching 'em on TV!

It is just insanely cold here in the Milwaukee area. Tomorrow schools are closed (and I think that's a good call) and so are some businesses. The wind chill is supposed to be -50F, with the actual temps between -18 and -20F. WHAT THE HECK!! Fairbanks, Alaska is warmer. Something wrong with that picture!

    Yes, there is still the Seahawks, I'm thinking (hoping) they'll make it to the Superbowl. Our fog finally burned off and it's a beautiful frosty morning.

    Being the seahawk fan I am I'm pulling for the seahawks. After all look at what happened last time they entered our house. I live in Louisiana so us seahawk fans are few, but still hoping for a repeat next week. Ill wear my seahawk jersey with pride. Sorry for your loss. Best of luck to you. On your journey.

    Two really weird and unforeseen ending yesterday evening. A football is not round, it bounces funny.

Why make today great? Because you can!
