Saying we had a feast during the big game would be an understatement. My roommate and I had a few friends and boy friends over for the game last night. We each made a few dips, snacks, and desserts, and needless to say, my belly was quite full before the game even started!
Here’s a little run down of what was munched on:
Purple rice krispie treats (my fave color) and M&M cookies from my mama
Seven layer dip, buffalo chicken dip, pizza dip, and chips
Mini turkey dogs wrapped in crescent rolls
Healthy cookie dough dip (made with garbanzo beans!)
Half way through consumption…before round two!!!
Pretzels with a peanut butter mixture and dipped in chocolate!
Cookies and cream brownies!
Homemade Snickers bars
We also had unpictured chicken nuggets and pizza bites. Holy cow. My belly is not too happy with me today. The downside to eating all of the junk is the way that my body feels after I eat. Also it definitely affects my feelings toward myself. Not only does my stomach scream at me for pouring all of this unhealthy food into it, but my head is so mad for allowing myself to OVER-indulge in the unhealthiness.
I have decided to go extreme here in a few weeks. Lent starts soon, and normally I give up junk food. This year, though, I am going to go vegan for the time. I have done a week long vegan challenge before, and I loved the way my body thanked me for not allowing certain things to enter my system. As I practically don’t eat meat now (other than chicken), the change may not be as challenging as for others, but I am still ready to tackle it head on.
In other news, I haven’t worked out since Friday. Between overindulging with my amazing family on Saturday and yesterday’s binging, I have decided to swim today. I really need to get my motivation back. Sometime this week, I am going to attempt running again as I have been trying to save the shins for the marathon!
Ok, well now it’s time to make healthy decisions and try to get back into the mindset needed for me to fight off the extra pounds of fat that have been creeping on as of late. Here’s to making changes for the better!
How was your Super Bowl experience? I won’t lie…I barely watched the game. It was nice to watch the commercials and Nicki Minaj and spend time with friends!
