Blog Prompt - Easier alone or in a relationship?

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Wow, this is my first blog prompt but since the answer popped into my head upon reading the question, I decided to use it.

This has been easier with my DH by my side, no question about it. He has been like a personal trainer - very encouraging, very supportive, very motivating.

But I have to admit that when it comes to cooking my meals that part is complicated by cooking for 2. I can't be sure if I am getting 1/2 the ingredients or not. So I know the calories can't be exact but then, what in life is ever perfect?

Easier for me in my relationship with my DH, Ray.

    I think u already know my comment on this subject. LOL
    I have had a tough go of it b/c I can't get my hubby on board with me. I hate to say it, but it's easier for me to cook for myself. Of course, this doesn't make it very pleasant around my house when he comes home & I have already eaten. I usually make enuf that he can eat if he wishes, but he won't. He tells me to bring it for lunch the next day b/c he doesn't want it. So I don't feel so bad when he makes the fatty, cholesterol filled, artery hardening CRAP and I say I'm not hungry.
    Someday.... maybe.... I will get him on board.

    I agree with you Linda. My DH is on this trip with me. We choose menus together and cook and clean up together. He watches me and I him. I think it is easier with a buddy.

    I am so glad your DH has been supportive (and that you both have a sense of humor!!!) That makes this path much easier!

    I love alone when my daughter is in college and I am not sure that is easier or harder. Some nights I eat a lean cuisine instad of cooking which isn't the best. There are pros and cons to each side.
