Superbowl Sunday could be a difficult day, especially if you will watch the game with family and friends. So, take an offensive position NOW to prepare. Some suggestions:
1. Set your Game Plan: give yourself permission for what is allowable. Do it before you go. One beer? One plate of nachos? Enter it on your diet calendar before you head out.
2. Suit up for the day: wear something that shows off your success to date, or something a tad tight. Cinch the belt in!
3. Feel superior. As you maintain your control for the day, look around at the others in the room. Look at the quantity of what they are eating, drinking. Know that the next day they are going to hurt - whereas you'll be feeling strong and walking tall!
4. Win! Walk away at the end of the night knowing you set your plan, worked your plan, and won. Whohoo... we can do this!

Good luck, all.

Thanks for posting the reminder of having a plan! Tomorrow is going to be a long, difficult day for me. I'm a timer at my tri-club's swim meet in the morning. I will bring some healthy snacks, but allow myself to enjoy one piece of pizza they are buying us volunteers for lunch. Later in the day, I'm going to a SuperBowl party. It's also with my tri-club, so I'm hoping they have some healthy alternatives for food. In any event, I'm going to bring a veggie tray, so I can munch on that if nothing else. I'll allow myself a beer (maybe two, if they are light).

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
