Well – today is Super Bowl Sunday and became a super cheat day…
The day started off well enough with us sleeping in and not really being hungry for breakfast. Then, after making a run to the grocery store we figured it was too late to have a “real” meal before heading over to the neighbors for the festivities. So I had a couple of dates and a cherry pie larabar which was actually really good. I’m glad I have a few extra for the days that lie ahead.
Then, came the party. We brought our own steaks that I seasoned with a good dry rub and they got grilled to perfection. The issues came when the chips came out along with guacamole (nice and paleo) and 7-layer dip (not so paleo). I used bell pepper and cucumber for dipping some of the time, but I did definitely have some chips…and some cheese dip. I also had a bite of a baked fruit crumble and of a cupcake, but am glad I didn’t eat real servings of either of those. We were stuffed! Then…we came home and made popcorn…and I had a couple of sour gummy worms. I know – worst most sugar laden thing possible. My stomach is not happy about everything that happened today so here’s hoping that will teach me a lesson.
We didn’t go overboard on bread or anything, but as far as cheat days go that I have had on this adventure so far, it’s been the biggest. Looking forward to getting back to good real food tomorrow and to get back into Crossfit!
