I hate watching professional sports (I enjoy watching the Olympics every 2 years- watching truly amazing athletes at their peak!). But, in general, I have a very unpopular opinion of football (family, friends, online, etc- everyone loves it!). To me, it is a boring waste of time ... Imagine if everyone played football the same amount of time they watched it! Also, most of my friends use the game watching as extra excuses to drink beer and eat crap.
The Superbowl is the climax of these bad behaviors that seem to epitomize American behavior: couch sitting, TV watching, overeating, celebrity idolizing, etc. I know humans throughout time have loved watching games and talking about the athletes (Roman gladiators, Mesoamerican ballgame, etc) but I think our culture takes the obsession to a frenzied, unhealthy level.
Needless to say, I didn't watch the game, haha. I didn't go to my friend's party (though I had to listen to a conversation about the absurd junk food that would be there).
What did I do? Lived my normal day. Recovered from my long hike (calves were insanely sore still!). Grocery shopped and prepped for the week - we got some amazing produce and our kitchen is overflowing with colorful food :)
I've been OVERhungry after these winter hikes- 8+ hours of constant movement in freezing temperatures seems to trick my body into thinking it is in survival mode. I definitely overate after the hike and had extra snacks yesterday, putting me at the high end of my range: 123. I feel much more normalized today, going to be eating my usual meals and snacks.
Off to start the day- get to school and get some things done before returning home to walk the dog :)
Namaste!! (And please don't be offended if you like football, to each their own! I have my own vices, football watching is just one that I simply do not understand and wish didn't exist, hahaha. Yet I am but one woman whose opinion on that doesn't matter!)
