Hah. I went to a meeting at 7:30 so i missed most of the game. Oh well, hadn't been to one yet yesterday and i committed to a 90 in 90. I did get home in time to see the final 7 minutes which were great.

Fresca has become my new beverage of choice (outside of oodles of water). My 6 year old son and I also successfully destroyed an entire bag of Whoppers watching the game. Gotta love those malt balls!

Cranberry juice/Sierra Mist for me. But I guarantee I feel much better than a lot of other people this morning!

Well I ate pizza, drank a ton of water during the first half..... then cat napped my way through the second half, wish it had been the other way around, but at least I remember the parts I was awake for unlike when I was drinking and could barely remember the 1st quarter.

I really like the thread title "Sober Bowl'!!!!

Didn't watch it. Went to a balloon museum instead. LOL! By the way, it was a great time to go because there were ZERO in the way of crowds.

Congratulations though. I know getting through that is like getting through New Years Eve for some.

I made lasagna for the first time (am I finally becoming a "real mom?!") and my son and I ate too much and watched. I love the e-trade commercials so much with those babies, I rewound it several times on the DVR and laughed every time.

My co-worker, by the way, had a N'awlins party I did not attend, and today felt like crap after drinking (ahem) ten hurricanes!!! Ten! (I listened with compassion - not judging. Just sayin'. I do not miss that feeling.

I love it Soph!! Yeah...my last big night out was Saturday and it was a reminder to me as to why I had cut back or stopped drinking so much. Luckily my boyfriend and I made the decision together...so we can be partners in our new lifestyle. We have had way more Hangover Free weekends and have enjoyed that soooooo much more....than the after affects of a night out. plus our last night was not even enjoyable even with being drunk....reminded me that I have grown past those nights.

I didn't watch the game as I'm not into football, but isn't it amazing how much more fun we have sober?

2 big cheeseburgers, tortilla chips and queso dip, and combo pizza rolls! I can't believe I ate so much. Were it not for sobriety I would've packed on about 1500 more calories in mixed drinks and beers.

AND I am able to talk about what happened in the game with my coworkers and not have a hazy memory where I can't remember specific plays. My first Soberbowl in quite a long time was succesful!
