Foodie Friday

I've had some random experiences today, all involving food. For instance:
  • a friend of mine was Twittering about an awesome chocolate covered strawberry that she was enjoying
  • another friend posted about a cheesecake personality test (I'm Snickers, by the way)
  • I had lunch with my friend Liz today and enjoyed a delicious deli sandwich

The irony is that I'm trying to cut back on my food intake. I've been pretty successful - between not eating piles of Cheez-Its and walking 23 flights of stairs daily, I've seen some results, both on the scale and in the fit of my clothes. I still have miles to go but it's motivating to see the results after a few weeks.

With this weekend being Super Bowl, it will be impossible to turn around without encountering something deep-fried or covered in cheese (or both!) The trick will be to sample, but not overindulge. The other trick is to not beat myself up if I happen to eat a little too much. I'll just do an extra 10 minutes on the treadmill and get back in the groove.

However, if they have those cheese-filled tater tots, it's all over. What's your Super Bowl favorite?

I could eat my weight in the right chips and dip combo. I'm also a CheezItz lover. And beer. Maybe I'll opt for the Michelob Ultra instead of Bud Heavy this year.

Cupcakes have, and always will be, my weakness. It's impossible for me to escape their lure.

Fried cheese...love it.

We hit the Costco yesterday and will be munching on pizza, fresh mozzerella and tomato salad, hummus and crackers, chips, dips and the rest of the kind of food that makes my ass spread just by looking at it.
