I didn't eat enough yesterday. There was more things I was planning to eat, including a tasty watermelon that my husband somehow decided once the 5 year old didn't eat it it meant that I wanted him to throw it out. And that my husband didn't actually make any vegetables or a salad for supper. When I got home at 7:30 to eat all that was ready was a stuffed onion. In his own small way he just makes things more difficult.
There are three nights a week when he has to be completely responsible for supper. All I ask is that is can be something that I can heat up easily and that it includes vegetables. Green, leafy vegetables are a bonus. I don't want to wait for him to get the boys to bed and then steam some vegetables for me, or for him to make a salad. I just want to be able to get changed and eat because people are coming over within 30 minutes of getting home.
So when the end of the evening came I was 200+ calories short of the minimum. I made myself a little snack: salami, cheese, crackers and nuts. It was good. I would have liked some fruit as well but he also didn't buy things I liked when he was getting groceries. I may have to be more specific in the future.
So ummm... this sort of turned into a complaining about my husband blog. Didn't mean for that to happen. I need help with this losing weight thing and I feel like I'm not asking him the right things to get that help.
