Preparing for Tailgating

Saturday, August 27, 2011

A week ago today I was at my future sister in law's wedding...a week from today I will be at the tailgate of the first Ohio State Buckeye's football game. These two events have more in common than just the day of the week they fall on, they are also high alcohol content activities. I know for some, that drinking at tailgates is a staple of the college football experience, and I tend to agree to point. However, if I want to continue to drop these dreaded pounds, I won't be partaking in this ritual. That's not to say that I won't be having fun, there are a ton of other things I can do to show my Buckeye Pride...things like cornhole and giant jenga or even plinko. And even if I can't get into the game itself, I can watch it from the tailgate on a big ass tv, and when you are cheering on the Bucks, and celebrating yet another touchdown (which we all know is going to happen multiple times), you don't have time to reach for a drink. Even though celebrating and drinking tend to go hand in hand, I have a much bigger celebration I am getting ready for in 46 weeks. So I will hold off on all these smaller celebrations, and when the time is right, I will raise my glass and toast to a number of things, maybe even my weight loss.

    Great way of looking at! I'm sure with the resolve you showed at your sister-in-law's wedding, you can definitely make it through football season! Just remember that it doesn't have to be all or nothing unless that's how you want it to be.

    Go you, and GO BUCKS!! emoticon
