Super Bowl Binge

I could have equally titled this post "Ugly MMNW".  My eating has totally been slipping lately.  I haven't packed on too many pounds, but the scale was not particularly kind either.  This morning's naked weight was 175.8.  Considering how late I consumed a number of calories and how icky I felt after it, I should be pleased it wasn't worse.  The chili, hot dog, chips/dip, cupcake, meatballs, crab rangoon, etc, etc - they were just too much for my weak will.  I hate when I eat and I'm not even hungry.  I felt so overfull last night.  Thankfully, Stacy stayed after the game and we did some Just Dance 2 to burn off some of the yuck.  We both worked up a minor sweat with several of the fast songs.

My son is home sick today with a low grade fever and sore throat that I'm concerned could be strep (since it has been burning like wildfire through his school).  Going to take him to the doctor at 1:45 and pray that he doesn't miss too much school this week.  The sun is supposed to come out later and warm us up into the upper 40's/lower 50's.  I had hoped to go for a bike ride.  He can stay home by himself if needed or I can wait for my husband to get home from work.  In the meantime, I'll try to make some progress on my slides for Vegas.


  1. Sorry about your son. I hope its not strep.

    Go enjoy the weather on the bike! I don't know if I will be able to this week and that makes me sad!

    1. Look--I figured out a way to post comments! Sorry your little guy is home sick. There seems to be so much going around right now!

  2. ugh...I hear you. We've hosted 2 playoff games and the superbowl and there is so much junk in our house. So not only are we sad the Patriots lost but we have to avoid the chips/beer/cookies that are left in our house! I'm exercising as much as I have since college and I'm not losing weight because of all the FOOD! If it's there, I will eat it. On the plus side, I did get to take my new bike outside on Sunday!

  3. Hope your son gets well soon. Schools are a hotbed for viruses for sure.

    Yeah, those Superbowl snacks can get out of control. I don't even try... I give myself total permission to enjoy them.

  4. Sorry your son is sick. Don't be too hard on yourself about the binge night. It's one night, and the weight gain is surely temporary. You'll be back on track in no time.

  5. One day won't set you back too much. Isn't it amazing how awful we feel after that? But I think a little indulgence keeps us sane.
