Game Day


Its a BEAUTIFUL fall Sunday morning and perfect day for Football!   I am so grateful for my birthday gift, a ticket to the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Pittsburg Steelers (go Birds!).   Excitement and hope are in the air in South Philly as a legit quarterback is rising in the organization.   Get on the Wentz Wagon because he is smart, dynamic and determined.

Ok I am done my Football analysis.

Time to talk about how I plan to keep focused on my goals and still enjoy myself at today’s tailgate.  

Heading off for a football game is an all day event.  Leave at 10:30am, tailgate 11:30-3:30pm, game start at 4:25pm, sit in traffic 8:30pm and get home at 9:30pm to give Gavin a kiss good night.  Knowing all that and the it was a “surf and turf” tailgate theme, I shifted around my meal prepping to Saturday.  I grilled a bunch of meats for lunches and dinners and then made two sides (one of which is heading to the tailgate)  Theme of meal prep… Cook once, eat all week!
