This morning I woke up at 6:30AM to beat the Super Bowl crowds at the grocery store. I did feel a smidge weird shopping for the week’s groceries at 7:30AM but hey, the only people I had to scoot around were the employees stocking the shelves.
For the week ahead I purchased the following things:
- Butter lettuce
- Shaved brussels sprouts
- Bolthouse Farms yogurt honey mustard dressing
- Perdue Perfect Portions Italian seasoned chicken
- Chicken tenderloins
- Pork tenderloin
- Skim milk
- FAGE Greek yogurt
- Plus all of Neal’s yummy eats (Golden Grahams, potato bread, lunch meat, yogurts, etc.)
- Paired with all of the items in our pantry, we have a lot of options for the week ahead!
I will say though, it was really hard seeing all of the party foods at the grocery store. I love party foods!! Love them! I love chips and queso, various dips, meatballs, and all of the other little finger foods.
With the Super Bowl being today, I really just wanted to throw a block of Velveeta in my cart with a can of Rotel and enjoy a big old bowl of queso tonight while watching the game. The truth is, it has been bothering me all day today. I want to party! And not just socially, I want to eat some party foods.
Dieting is tough every day but I find it to be the most difficult on days when “special foods” are served. Growing up, my Mom loved to make special foods for all of the holidays and non-holidays. For the Super Bowl she’d make foods from each of the team’s cities and lots of yummy appetizers. I loved days that were celebrated with fun foods.
Though I really love celebrating with food what I want to love now is how I feel about myself and about my fitness level. It’s really hard to not do anything special for the Super Bowl and to turn down the queso but I believe it’s going to be worth it.
The week ahead is going to be busy and possibly a little stressful but my goal is to eat clean and to get some great workouts it!
