Wednesday was a crazy day for me. We had some running around to do, and then we went to a Christmas Luncheon with retired Canada Post employees. The food was delicious. I didn't over-eat, and I had a slice of sugar-free pie for dessert. Had a lovely time visiting with old friends. I didn't eat anything for the rest of the day, as we had to go to a Christmas Banquet that evening for my DH's company.
We again had a wonderful time visiting with friends, but I am afraid I did over-eat. The food was so good, and it was very plentiful. I came home stuffed, and vowed that I wouldn't do that again.
Now I am trying to get back on track and start to eat healthier. I can manage okay when I eat at home. I do have breakfast, but I have a hard time fitting my lunch in. By the time I think about eating, it is almost time to make supper, and I don't bother eating. However, at supper I often find myself overeating, or I tend to eat later in the evening.
I sometimes have problems at this time of year, because often we end up going out shopping, and my DH always manages to be hungry. Most of the time I can control what I eat. I have found a nice place in the mall that offers chicken or turkey pannini with salads. I often choose a veggie salad and fruit salad with the sandwich while my DH heads for A & W, or as he likes to call it Albert and Walter's. I often find it very hard to eat healthy when my DH does not like salad, chicken, fish or anything that is too healthy. He too could benefit from losing a little weight, as he has gained 40 pounds over the last couple of years. He just laughs about it, but I am worried about him. He is on medication for high blood pressure, and I know he shouldn't be eating all the salt in those burgers and fries he loves so much, but I just don't know what to do about him.
I find it a real challenge.
