Friday dance, woohoo!
Anyone have any good plans for the weekend? Tonight Tim and I have our February date night planned. We are really trying to make a more conscious effort to have a date night once a month, and one that involves something beyond catching up on our favorite shows with beers or wine on the couch. Tomorrow I want to be productive with a workout, grocery shopping, some Y work, and house projects. And maybe I’ll be feeling social at night. Or wanting to shop. Who knows. Oh! Our new living room chair is being delivered. That’s pretty thrilling… moving on…
Sunday is the Super Bowl, and we are having some friends over which I am excited about. I couldn’t care less about football, so I’m excited to play hostess extraordinaire instead of having to sit through the game somewhere else.
I do care about the FOOD that football implies though! I’ll admit, we have a pretty fun menu planned. Let’s just say that two types of salsas, one dip, the MEDITECH ham, finger sandwiches, Shannon’s Irish Whiskey bars, Will’s chili, a second attempt at baked zucchini bites, another dessert, and another main dish… at the very least… will make an appearance. Yum. I will healthify some of these things… so stay tuned!
And I’m considering doing a Super Bowl workout. Yep, I said it. A Super Bowl workout. I can’t take full credit for the idea, as it was one that just kind of evolved when chatting about blog things with Jen and Ashley last weekend. I know everyone will make fun of me if I do this, especially my guy friends from home, but we’ll see. If anyone is interested, this is what I came up with:
It’s nothing crazy, but just a lil somethin’ somethin’ to keep you moving a little during an otherwise sedentary and calorie filled night! Also, last year I wrote a post about making a game plan for a healthier Super Bowl. Check it out here!

How do you try to stay healthy on Super Bowl Sunday? Have you ever done a Super Bowl workout?
Have a fun weekend, everyone!
I don’t even know what a penalty yard is…I am trying to farm out my husband that night so we don’t have to stream the game. I hate watching my kids watch those commercials/cheerleaders! I’m hoping to make it to Christine’s class in the morning, though!
I WILL be making the Irish Whiskey Bars…..does sitting up and reaching to get a sip of beer count as exercise? I like the workout plan, I might have to give it a try!
ugh. i HATE football so i will consider myself luckyif I can get out of watching it:) however, rather than my traditional Sunday night meals, I was thinking of doing something fun and different since it is a big food day! Love the workout idea throughout the game!
Are you expecting others at your party to participate in this workout?
