Today was Superbowl Sunday. A day best known for eating wings, drinking lagers, and shouting at the television when everyone else starts shouting because that’s what you’re supposed to do.
I knew today would be tough on both my sobriety, as well as my ability to stay within my allotment of Weight Watchers points BUT I managed to make it all the way to past dinner time without using up all of my daily points or weekly points.
I made a conscious effort to have a protein packed breakfast so that I would be full for a while before the Superbowl snackage started. I had:
1 bagel thin (3)
1 tbsp cream cheese (1)
1 egg, two whites (2)
A bell pepper (0)
2 oz. black forest ham (1)
I scrambled everything up and it was delicious for only 7 smart points!
For lunch/bowl food I had buffalo wings (7sp)
1 tbsp of Ranch (1sp)
and a ton of carrots and celery (0sp)
The real challenge for me was going to my favorite bar with some friends after halftime. I packed a ziplock of veggies to snack on, brought a pack of gum to avoid smoking, and while there I just ordered soda water with lemon and a diet pepsi. It was surprisingly easy to stay away from alcohol and cigarettes because I had a plan in place.
I’m excited that I can still enjoy a filling dinner and I don’t need to feel guilty about having a good time today with friends. If you did indulge a little extra today, that’s okay! It’s okay to indulge every once in awhile, as I am learning each day that moderation is key. Tomorrow is my weigh in day and I’m actually feeling pretty good about it.
