I am SO PROUD!!!

Saturday, February 25, 2012

I went grocery shopping today with my DH. This can be a very frustrating exercise - sometimes, the chocolate monster keeps throwing things into the trolley when I am not looking.

Today, we survived the aisles, and I was surveying the trolley contents - feeling smug at all the healthy stuff we had brought - tomatoes, lettuce, grapes, peaches, chicken, turkey breast, spinach, pumpkin etc - no processed anything and no junk.

I turned around just as we were approached by a gorgeous young girl bearing a tray full of chocolate samples. I took one look and said, 'No thanks.'

My DH looked at the tray and then at me as he said, 'We don't eat chocolate"!!!!

I am so proud that he was able to resist and also grateful for his support in my efforts. It would have been so easy for the chocolate monster to invade his body and for him to take one, but he didn't want to eat in front of me.

Who would have thought!!!

    Wow!!! You and your DH deserve a Sparkly merrit badge for that amazing feat!
Great job.
You two are a strong pair. Now if you can just get my husband to fall in line with yours, I would be so pleased!

    Haha! :) It's amazing what we can turn our husbands into, isn't it? Lucky me, we have 3 chocolate monsters in our house (including the kids and the hubby). If only we could turn them into veggie monsters! It sounds like you have though! Congrats to both of you! ;) What are you tips of the trade?

Keep up those healthy decisions (and by the way, your cart sounds delicious! I think I drooled a little when I read about the peaches :D)! emoticon

    Excellent job! Love that your hubby is helping in this.. it's to his benefit at well.
Yeah, I love how much easier it is to shop when you do most of your shopping in produce, meats and a few staples.
