Chris and I thought to go skiing on Superbowl day, because the mountains are generally pretty quiet, what with everyone getting their insane gorge-fests ready for the big game.
But money is definitely an issue. Especially if we end up using some savings on the honeymoon of our dreams. So, no skiing for us this weekend.
BUT. Another reason I wanted to go skiing was so that we were doing something active and not being tempted by bacon cheese potatoes and creamy dips. I love hanging out with my friends and there is a party being hosted.... but I really hate this weird "holiday" of watching other people play sports while we get just a little fatter. In the end, I don't feel good about myself during any Superbowl party I've ever gone to.
Now that we are not going skiing, we thought about hitting up the party. .... It's not what I want, though. I don't think we will go. Chris and I talked over our options and decided that taking the dog up north and going for a nice hike and eating a healthy dinner at home is really what we want. It's what's going to make us feel good about ourselves this weekend - bonding with the dog, using our bodies, not shoveling crap in our mouths.
It's hard. I want to be social. I love being social! I really, really like my friends here in Albany. It's hard to not go to a big gathering where everyone will be there.
It's time though, time to make the decisions that make my soul and body feel good and strong.
My friends aren't going anywhere. Missing watching a football game isn't a big deal, I know that.
I'm glad Chris and I are setting ourselves up for success. We need to get on OUR game :)
