Super Bowl Sunday!

It's Super Bowl Sunday and I'm sitting here watching the pre-game show. I am totally exhausted. I want to finish up the sorting, but the worst room (office) is what is left. I finished the kitchen though. I might have to leave the office until next weekend, but plan to keep going in and out this afternoon in case I get a second wind.

I was planning that next weekend would be for cleaning since all the sorting was to be done. I'll have to see how it goes. There is definitely plenty of time to do the sorting as it's pretty much 10 hours of TV for the Super Bowl. Seriously, for those of you that don't realize the beating (I mean entertainment), it starts at noon. Kickoff is about 5ish and goes until essentially 10pm tonight.

So what's my problem? My problem is that I am having the desire to eat crap!!! I am going to do my best to refrain and remind myself that tomorrow is my weigh in day. I thought maybe if I threw it out here that it might help with the battle. Again, it's not hunger. It's emotional crap eating. The cool thing (trying to find something) is that I am so good at recognizing it BEFORE it starts. In the past, I would recognize it after the fact - so that's real progress! And I would have to say that I mostly am able to deal with it!

I worked out every day this week. Honestly - too much. It is contributing to the feeling of exhaustion and my legs are not sore, but just worn out. Hard to describe. Depending on how I feel in the morning, I might have to go ahead and take a day off to let my legs rest. Doing the elliptical is also an option. I jogged 54 miles this week. Too bad I ate all that crap on Saturday or I'd be more optimistic that I would see a huge loss tomorrow!! Here's the exercise stats:
  • Mon - 80 mins
  • Tues - 80 mins + 65 mins
  • Wed - 120 mins
  • Thurs - 70 mins
  • Fri - 65 mins
  • Sat - 65 mins
  • Sun - 62 mins
Note to self: TOMORROW is weigh in day. Deal with your emotions in another way rather than eating them! (And get the sorting done! ha)

Recognising emo eating prior to eating is a wonderful skill - well done you! Superbowl is a mystery to me soon but I did see highlights of Bruce Springstein doign the pregame concert on the news. There was an Aussie guy in the losing team and that made it news over here - go figure.
